Blue team’s marketing department is at it again. _rogame has shared a slide by Intel that extols the alleged superiority of its 10th Gen Core mobile processor platform by comparing MSI’s GL65 laptop (Core i7-10750H) against ASUS’s ROG Zephyrus G14 (Ryzen 9 4900HS).
As you might expect, the benchmarks are in Intel’s favor, with Comet Lake-H showing gains of up to 23 percent in hit titles such as Rainbow Six Siege – but eagle-eyed enthusiasts have noticed a serious discrepancy. While both the MSI GL65 and Zephyrus G14 feature an NVIDIA RTX 2060 Mobile GPU, the former uses a 90-watt variant, while the latter uses a 65-watt variant.

Yikes! Many users are wondering whether this kind of marketing is even legal, but the bottom of the slide does come with the following disclaimer: “Frequencies and performance of non-CPU components vary from system to system.”
