Many of the other notebooks I have tested use very powerful mobile or even desktop CPUs and GPUs, and they cost triple or even sometimes quadruple the price of the XPS 13. The fairest comparison on the chart is between the XPS 13 and the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga, located at the bottom of most of the tests.

 

Overall, the frequency gains the 7700U brings to the table, coupled with the increase in iGPU performance, puts the XPS 13 ahead of the other similarly equipped notebook, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga.
