The Venue 11 Pro was conceived as a tablet for use in the business environment. Dell outfitted the device with a Full HD IPS display và made it easy to access the tablet"s inner workings. A quick SSD and a core i5 processor vị the device credit on paper too. But all told, can the tablet win us over?

For the original German review, see here.

We"re already familiar with the Dell Venue 11 Pro: In January 2014, we reviewed amodel from this line. That version ran on aCore i3 processor; our current chạy thử device boasts of a chip core i5. The new processor looks better on paper, but does the tablet really gain anything? Is it worth it to lớn pay the higher price compared to the bộ vi xử lý core i3 model? Our review reveals the answers.

The Venue 11 Pro"s competition consists of business tablets manufactured by other companies, for instance theLenovo ThinkPad 10and theMicrosoft Surface Pro 3.

Since the two Venue 11 Pro models are structurally identical, we won"t cover the case, connectivity, display or speakers in detail. See our review of the core i3 version of the Venue 11 Profor more information on these subjects.

The Venue 11 Pro is equipped with the same display as itssister model. This is a bright, high-contrast IPS display withstable viewing angles. The measurements we recorded were a little different for the two panels, but this is normal. Two structurally identical displays never register 100% identical results.

The Dell Venue 11 Pro is primarily designed for business people. The processor"s performance is more than sufficient for everyday office tasks. Dell offers this tablet in a variety of configurations, including versions with 3G modems. Our test device costs around 1,000 Euros (~$1222). Dell is also producing less expensive models with Atom processors, starting at around 380 Euros (~$464).

The tablet runs on aCore i5-4300Ydual-core processor (Haswell). The “Y” at the kết thúc indicates that this is a very energy-efficient CPU. At 11.5 Watts, the TDP is even lower than that of a “normal” ULV processor (15 Watts). The CPU"s base clock rate is 1.6 GHz; using turbo, the speed can be increased to up to lớn 2.3 GHz. However, the processor almost never utilizes its full performance capacity. The CPU completed the Cinebench benchmark"s single-thread tests at 1.4 lớn 2.3 GHz, while the tốc độ generally hovered around 2 GHz. The processor performed the multi-thread tests at 1.3 to 1.4 GHz. The CPU"s behavior was identical in both AC power mode và battery mode.

The processor"s results in our various benchmarks were disappointing. Because the core i5 didn"t use its turbo in the multi-thread tests and even ran below its base clock speed, the processor"s results are lower than those of its sister model"s (outfitted with aCore i3-4020Y). Our demo device"s single-thread performance, however, proved khổng lồ be superior to that of the bộ vi xử lý core i3-4020Y Venue. The processor can use its turbo for single-thread applications.
