Honor has recently launched its new MagicBook series, enhancing the laptop market with its latest technology. The series features the i5-13420H processor, a noteworthy advancement from its predecessor, the i5-13500H. The i5-13420H processor includes 4 large cores and 4 small cores, with a turbo frequency of 4.6GHz. While it has 4 fewer small cores and a slightly reduced L3 cache and frequency compared to the i5-13500H, resulting in a minor decrease in core display performance, the processor still boasts a core display of 48EU and a core display frequency of 1.4GHz.
The MagicBook prioritizes flexibility and performance, offering dual modes for users: smart and high-performance. This feature supports up to 45W in high-performance mode. In terms of heat management, the MagicBook excels with its efficient heat dissipation system. This system includes a large-sized high-performance fan, high-density S-shaped slim fan blade design, and dual heat-dissipation copper tubes, creating an impressive heat-dissipation area of 29,700 mm².
