The 8th Generation Intel® CoreTM processor has 4 cores that can support up to 8 threads and triples the performance, speed, and power of previous models (see graph) from four years ago.
VAIO® TruePerformance Test
The debut of 8th generation Intel® CoreTM Processor dramatically improves overall performance.
VAIO Corporation study based on testing prototypes. Results may vary depending on other test environments and controls.
The notebook PC market is a place where devices compete for best performance daily, and while evolution does happen fast, our notebook won’t disappoint you by becoming outdated after purchase. Additionally, you can feel confident that Windows 10, the most reliable OS, has already been installed.
Which means now is the best time to purchase a professional grade notebook PC at an unbeatable price.
And VAIO’s proprietary TruePerformance technology boosts the latest Intel® CoreTM processor to power through the toughest tasks without waiting for it to catch up to you.
VAIO® TruePerformance at a glance
Tests show when VAIO® TruePerformance is applied there an overwhelming improvement when completing data rich tasks like processing code, editing video, or even creating complex 3D models
The top two graphs illustrate common benchmarks for testing. The 4 core/8 thread system optimization tool shows that VAIO® TruePerformance enhances performance of the 8th generation processor, which had already dramatically increased from that of 7th generation processors. This graph compares performance in a legacy model notebook (VAIO S11/VAIO S13) where VAIO® TruePerformance has been applied. VAIO SX12/VAIO SX14 is equipped with the latest 8th generation processor which whose already improved processing speed is boosted even further.
Testing on current models confirm dramatic increase in processing speeds.
VAIO Corporations study based on testing prototypes. Results may vary depending on other test environments and controls. VAIO® TruePerfomance also dominated in tests where actual usage was observed. The ease of processing data rich applications, shortened lag times during video processing, etc., elevated all forms productivity, while also lengthening the amount of time the PC could remain powered on.
VAIO® TruePerformance devices are blazing fast.
Which means if you want a supercharged mobile notebook PC, VAIO is for you.
The technology that powers VAIO® TruePerformance
What is TruePerformance?
It is common knowledge that comparable mainstream Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 CPUs do not have the same performance levels. Power consumption when idle is often reduced, and then increased for heavier workloads at peak performance and efficiencies are required. Due to the buildup of heat most CPUs can only sustain peak performance for short periods of time with the CPU finding a mid-range performance setting to prevent over-heating. VAIO’s goal has been to sustain that peak performance level. VAIO’s over 20 years of experience in making high performance notebook PCs has greatly improved our understanding of heat dissipation technology and made it possible for us to create a system that allows you to maintain peak performance longer.
Not unlike a professional marathoner who trains their body to adjust and remain steady to different race conditions, steady PC performance output is ideal over short bursts of power consumption because these later causes a drag when the PC is overtaken by excess heat. This is the difference between a professional and an amateur runner and it is the same for PC performance.
