Lenovo ThinkPad W550s Ultrabook Mobile Workstation Review 44 |

The CPU in the W550s is Intel Core i7-5600U processor. This is a Dual Core CPU with Hyper threading giving us 2 cores/4 threads to work with. The CPU has a stock speed of 2.6GHz and Turbo's up to 3.2 GHz. Memory speed comes rated at 1600MHz and CL11 timings. These are standard memory stats so we expect that to be about equal to other systems. The W550s comes with 16GB of DDR3 RAM.

We also can see the stats of the Intel HD 5500 graphics included with the Core i7-5600U processor. The W550s also includes NVIDIA Quadro K620M graphics processor for additional GPU power.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - William Harmon

William Harmon started working with computers back in 2005 and began overclocking all kinds of different setups. My focus back then and even now is extreme cooling using Single Stage Phase units, Cascades and Liquid Nitrogen. During this time I was also in several competitions that GIGABYTE had sponsored, GOOC 2009 and 2010. Using technics in overclocking and cooling that I have learned over the years I started building high speed workstations and servers for clients who needed higher performing systems. Many of these systems are used in high frequency trader companies and work stations used in all kinds of professions. At TweakTown, I provide and develop accurate test and benchmark methods for servers and other equipment to help make purchasing decisions easier.
