The Mechrevo S1-02’s screen features a three-sided narrow bezel design with a border width of only 5.9mm and its camera moved to the bottom of the screen. In terms of screen configuration, the mechanical revolution S1 is equipped with a 14-inch, 72% NTSC color gamut, 178° viewing angle, and 1080p screen of the IPS panel. From these parameters, this screen is equivalent to the “sea view room” in the thin and light one. When using this screen to watch movies and do design work, the color reproduction is more accurate.
The Mechrevo S1-02 also has a good combination of configuration. The S1-02 I got was equipped with an Intel Core i5-8250U processor and MX150 2GB alone, with 8GB of DDR4 memory and 256GB PCIe SSD. What is the performance of such a configuration? We ran a few points through a series of test software to see how much this light and thin book is capable.
The Mechrevo S1-02 is powered by Intel’s new eight-generation Core low-voltage processor i5-8250U. This processor is designed with 4 cores and 8 threads. The third-level cache is 6MB, clocked at 1.6GHz and core frequency is 1.8GHz.
The Mechrevo S1-02 is equipped with a 256GB PCIe SSD. The specific protocol for the SSD is PCIe 3.0. Most of the SSDs currently supplied by OEMs use the SATA protocol. After the PCIe protocol, the solid-state transmission speed can be increased by one. More than double.
Through the AS SSD test, we can see that the sequential read speed of the SSD is 1154.26MB/s, the sequential read is 759.51MB/s, the 4K random read speed is 38.75MB/s, and the 4K random write is 87.55. MB/s. In general, the overall quality of this solid state drive is relatively strong, the speed of transferring files is very fast, and the speed of recalling and loading files is also good.
It is worth mentioning that the notebook is also very scalable. Its interface includes headphones, microphone two-in-one interface, display port, HDMI interface, two USB3.1 Type-c, two USB3.1 Type-a, one Kensington lock (security lock). In addition, the thin and light version adds a fingerprint recognition module to the touchpad to provide security for your computer.
