At the same time, the maximum refresh rate of the screen is 120Hz, and it supports adaptive refresh rate changes between 30-120Hz. This design is somewhat like a mobile phone screen.

Benefiting from the influence of screen hardware performance, the 3K screen of YOGA Pro 14s not only has a color gamut range of 100% sRGB but also supports Dolby Vision, and the color accuracy has also reached the level of Delta E, less than 1.

 

2, performance: excellent balance of performance and power consumption.

Some. The 3050 OpenCL running score of the YOGA Pro 14s has reached 59233, which is still in the upper-middle performance among the 3050 graphics cards.

To release the performance of integrated display and independent display, on YOGA Pro 14s 2022, the manufacturer launched X Power technology, which intelligently selects the choice of combined display output, graphics card direct connection, and mixed output. By intelligently selecting the graphics processing method, it can adapt to the needs of different software for graphics processing capabilities and achieve a balance between relative performance and battery life.

In daily use, with the help of the automatic switching between the integrated display and the independent display, in most scenarios, even if the integrated graphics card is used, the graphics processing power of the YOGA Pro 14s is sufficient to meet the daily office needs.
