The Huawei MateBook 13 uses the faster 25 W ‘1D10’ GeForce MX150 GPU

The MateBook X Pro launched early last year as Huawei’s top-tier offering. It subsequently received overwhelmingly positive reviews from press even though it uses the slower 10 W ‘1D12’ GeForce MX150 GPU instead of the faster 25 W ‘1D10’ version. When Huawei announced the mid-tier MateBook 13 at CES 2019, we assumed it would sport the same 10 W ‘1D12’ GPU as its pricier alternative. Surprisingly, Huawei has thrown us a curve a ball Lenovo’s latest laptop.

We can confirm that the MateBook 13 ships with the faster 25 W ‘1D10’ GeForce MX150 GPU instead of the slower ‘1D12’ version. Our GPU-Z screenshots below show the MX150 in the MateBook 13 running at faster base clock rates, faster memory clock rates, and faster boost rates by significant margins over the slower GPU in last year’s MateBook X Pro. The performance gain is expected to be greater than 30 percent based on our experience with the new Razer Blade Stealth which also utilizes a ‘1D10’ GeForce MX150 GPU.
