For instance, we noted that the XPG Xenia 14, equipped with the Core i7-1165G7, had 12-22% better multi-threaded performance than the average score of the laptops rocking the same chip. To top it all off, the notebook proved practically quiet during routine tasks while temperatures stayed manageable even under full load.
