ByMord Maclachlan 2019-12-27 2816

Do you still remember the RedmiBook 14 tested by the House Secret Review before? Although Redmi is not a traditional laptop manufacturer, I have to say that the RedmiBook 14, as a newcomer to campus and workplace, has a simple and initial demand for laptops at the beginning, but it is a good choice for people who do not want to be too expensive.

 
RedmiBook 14 enhanced version

A few months ago, RedmiBook 14 released an enhanced version. What is the strength of this enhanced version? Coincidentally, the enhanced version of RedmiBook 14 has also come to the evaluation room of CNMO. Next, let's follow in the footsteps of the editor to see where it has been enhanced.

The new 10-generation core has enhanced its computing power

Today, the main advantage of laptops over smartphones lies in their higher computing power. Higher computing power means stronger performance; stronger performance means that more usage scenarios can be achieved to meet the needs of different users. For a portable laptop product, there is still a certain demand for performance, such as the multi-opening of a large number of web pages (mainly depends on memory), the operation of professional programs (CPU computing power), image processing (GPU) and so on.


For the enhanced version of RedmiBook 14, the biggest performance enhancement is that it is equipped with Intel's latest version of the new tenth-generation Core processor, which has been greatly improved in configuration. The top of the whole series uses the tenth generation Intel Core i7 Rue 10510U processor with a maximum frequency of 4.9Hz, which is nearly 13% higher than that of the previous generation. Although the enhanced version of RedmiBook 14 in the hands of the editor is not at the top, the performance of the i5mai 10210U processor is not too inferior.

I5-10210U is a 4-core 8-thread processor with a frequency of 1.6 EU), TDP 4.2 GHz and a three-level cache of 6MB. It uses UHD kernel display (24 GHz 15W). There are two main changes compared with the eighth-generation Core i5  I5-10210U 8265U with the same location, one is that the maximum frequency is increased from 3.9GHz to 4.2 GHz, and the other is that the memory frequency is increased from DDR4-2400 to DDR4-2666. In the actual test, compared with previous generations of core i5, there is a significant improvement in performance.

Graphics card, the same as RedmiBook 14, also uses a NVIDIA GeForce MX250 independent graphics card, this is the current lightweight version of the more mainstream independent graphics card, with 2GB GDDR5 high-speed graphics memory, whether it is a simple daily use scene, or more special image processing, entertainment audio and video, and so on, its functions are not inferior. During the evaluation period, even when there is a temporary problem with the editor's desktop, it is easy to connect the monitor and play World of Warcraft nostalgic clothes.

Of course, in addition to the overall improvement of the processor, the graphics card is also strong, in other configurations, RedmiBook 14 enhanced version is still impressive. 8GB memory is enough to meet the needs of users for more windows; the high-speed rolling hard disk that can support 512GB can also further improve the speed of program loading and file reading.

Finally, in the performance section, the editor still wants to focus on heat dissipation. The enhanced version of RedmiBook 14 improves performance without sacrificing too much heat dissipation. With the cooperation of large diameter fan and efficient heat dissipation hole, it greatly ensures the overall heating of notebook computers under high efficiency operation, especially in the process of external display screen games, the fuselage does not have the feeling of "hot hand". As a light and thin book, it is a good experience!

Colorful appearance provides more personality choices

 
In addition to the performance improvement, the enhanced version of RedmiBook 14 is also reflected in the exterior design, the most obvious is the addition of two colors, namely Deep Air Ash and Ruoxue Powder, which are completely different colors, which can further meet more users' pursuit of product personalization.


Fuselage overall design still continues the simple design, the overall weight is also relatively light, even with the adapter, when carrying out, it will not produce an extra sense of burden, whether it is installed in the boys' favorite shoulder bag or the girls' favorite satchel, it is relatively easy.


B-side still uses a 14-inch 1080p full HD anti-glare screen, and the ultra-narrow frame of 5.75mm still brings amazing visual effects, which makes the screen share reach 81.2%. This visual effect is also more in line with the habits and needs of current users. 

Battery life still needs to be talked about alone


The portable laptop is often like a smartphone, and the battery life largely determines the pros and cons of its user experience. Under normal usage intensity, the battery life of the enhanced version of RedmiBook 14 can be maintained at about 10 hours. Of course, if you spend a lot of time watching videos or playing games, this result will be relatively discounted, but the overall experience is not bad among the lightweight books currently on the market.

At the same time, there is no need to worry too much even if the battery life is not enough. RedmiBook 14 enhanced version supports 1C fast charging technology. In practice, the battery can reach 50% after about half an hour of charging. This charging efficiency further ensures the battery life.

Optimized using experience

Similarly, some of the detailed designs that enhance the overall user experience have been retained on the enhanced version of RedmiBook 14. For example, equipped with DTS professional sound effects, whether it is watching movies or playing games, you can enjoy a good sound experience through the power amplifier included in RedmiBook 14.

Interface, in order to facilitate the target user group, the configuration of 2 USB 3.0,1 USB 2.0,full-size HDMI and 3.5mm headphone holes can also greatly meet the needs of users in daily office, entertainment and multi-scene.

In addition, RedmiBook 14 enhanced version supports Modern Standby technology, which not only implements ultra-low power standby function, but also supports Xiaomi intelligent unlocking 2.0. Upgrade Xiaomi bracelet 3 to the latest firmware and bind the notebook to quickly unlock it.


The high-definition and high-quality wallpaper brought by Xiaomi Pictorial, which was loved by the editor before, still includes, it is very easy to use.

Of course, there is also pre-installed 748 yuan worth of genuine Office family and student version software, user activation can be free trial, this is a good benefit for both business and student users!


Bottom line

Generally speaking, the enhanced version of RedmiBook 14 is not a gimmick. on the basis of retaining the original advantages of RedmiBook 14, it further improves some configurations and features that can be done better, maximizing the user experience, while the price does not increase significantly compared with the same period last year. With such a price, it is undoubtedly a good choice to have such a PC experience! Using an old saying to describe the upgrade of the enhanced version of RedmiBook 14, the editor remembered the saying, "good steel is used on the blade."
