Early Reviews of Snapdragon X Elite Laptops Disappoint Critics

The first reviews are in for laptops featuring the Snapdragon X Elite, and critics are unanimous in their disappointment with the devices’ gaming performance. The integrated Adreno X1 graphics struggles to deliver even 20 frames per second on “The Witcher 3” at 1080p with ultra settings. Many games had to be run in emulation (if they ran at all), leading to issues like unchangeable resolution settings and overall unsatisfactory performance.

While gaming optimization can be improved over time, these laptops were primarily designed for professionals using AI applications. However, instead of leveraging the built-in NPU (Neural Processing Unit), these tasks are being offloaded to Microsoft’s servers. The reasoning behind this approach remains unclear.

On a positive note, reviewers praised the computational performance and energy efficiency of the laptops. Unlike typical Windows laptops, these devices maintain their performance even when unplugged, which is a significant advantage.

This feedback is particularly relevant for the U.S. market, where high-performance laptops are essential for both gaming and professional use.
