Do not exceed 55 MPH while the Carrier is attached..


So?
You're free to accelerate as soon as it falls off..

I wonder if the speed limit is about the smashing G forces a bump or dip could generate...

I know I'm getting old, but, I think there comes a time when some things just seem like too much,,,
V12's are 1710 cubic inches, not cc's! Think of the torque!

Here is a comment from a viewer looking over the same results that did, and I get behind his impressions 100%.

This is the tell-all:

“Performance sustainability is not that great as well. When running CineBench R15 xT in a loop, the high initial score of 863 points would drop by as much as 25 percent over time. The Core i7-1065G7 in the Dell XPS 13 7390 2-in-1 would behave almost identically.”

That quote comes straight out of the more flattering NotebookCheck article. All in all, Tiger Lake is Ice Lake with some process efficiency improvements and a much-needed graphics upgrade. Yet even games are a loss. Here again NotebookCheck doesn’t hold back:

“Frame rates when running Witcher 3, DOTA 2, or GTA V are all noticeably slower than the AMD-powered Yoga Slim 7 despite what our 3DMark results above suggest.”

I would bet anything they likely optimized their drivers to the benchmark but not to actual real-world gaming performance.


Tiger Lake is not at all the slam dunk checkmate win over Renoir-based Ryzen 4000 that Intel’s marketing department made it out to be. If anything, at best, it’s a stalemate, and if you need multicore performance, it’s an out-and-out complete loss.

And with Zen 3 laptops just half a year out, I would strongly discourage anyone from buying Tiger Lake.
  Unless you have a specific feature need that is only found on an Intel model of laptop, buy Zen 2/Renoir now or wait for Zen 3/Cezanne next year.

You don't need to purchase a new clutch cover gasket because the OEM one is coated metal and will cope with very many removal and reinstalls.

I purchased a cheap OEM ones but they're just normal fibre gaskets and I quickly realised they are not worth the paper they're made from and never used it. The S40 gets hot and will likely bake a normal paper gasket.

Here are three links to the three first reviews of the first released Tiger Lake machines.   You can clearly see which reviewers blindly followed the Intel recommended tests (yielding the expected built in bogus test results) and then there were the more experienced reviewers who did a more credible job of setting up and following "a real review" strategy that showed a more realistic picture of Tiger Lake.

Really "reality testing" the machines gave results similar to this:


Whereas blindly following the Intel "Recommended Test Procedures" yielded this sort of results:



My take on reading the first reviews was mixed, as we were dealing with some very skilled reviewers who dug in deeply and then we had some relatively shallow depth "beginner" reviewers.   Some reviews just seemed to regurgitate the Intel Press Kit information which really isn't really reviewing anything, really.

All of them saw some signs of  "funny stuff" going on with the Tiger Lake processor's thermal characteristics during heavy use but only one review got into the large amount of heat generated and dumped by his test machine using a heat sensor camera.





One newbie reviewer just listed the Press Kit numbers for battery life and apparently never tested things herself for real to see what sort of life she really got.   Others tested and noted some abnormally short battery life, only one reviewer really dug in and tried to find out why.

I was amazed at how shallow some of the reviews were, and how willing some reviewers were to "stick to the Press Kit" for all their information.

Tongue

To find one of these last sort actually working for Tom's Hardware was a real disappointment, to me anyway.
