A recent benchmark of Intel’s Lakefield system-on-a-chip processor could spell trouble for upcoming Microsoft and Samsung products. The processor, which is being marketed as an ultra-low-power hybrid CPU for mobile devices and ultrabooks promises to reach upwards of 3.0GHz, but according to a report from Notebookcheck, the Lakefield chip they tested fell well short of expectations.

Lakefield benchmark shows poor performance for Intel’s new SoC

According to the new benchmark, Intel Lakefield doesn’t come close to reaching its advertised 3.0GHz. What’s more, Intel promised Lakefield would have 12% better single-core performance compared to the Intel Amber Lake processor, but this new benchmark shows that Intel’s new SoC falls well short of that expectation as well, ending up a stunning 67% slower than Amber Lake.
