Digital.
Equipped with a Core i9-12900H in its most radical version (14 cores!), The MateBook 16s is capable of performing task after task without showing the slightest sign of weakness. Its dual ventilation system connected to two extra large heat pipes probably has something to do with it, but we must also welcome the presence of 16 GB of LPDDR5 RAM, which provides increased capacity for multitasking.
In any case, this processor is a real racehorse capable of reaching 5 GHz, while presenting outstanding energy efficiency thanks to its hybrid architecture divided between 6 “performance” cores (P-Cores) and 8 “efficient” cores (E -Cores).
A beautiful 2.5K screen in 3: 2 format
But the result is all the more convincing, as Huawei has chosen to integrate a large 16-inch screen (40.6 cm diagonal) in 3: 2 format rather than the classic 16: 9. This choice is not insignificant, it provides a larger screen area while maintaining a compact size. It is thus possible to use the touch screen and the new productivity features introduced on Windows 11like Snap layouts or virtual offices, without feeling cramped.

Huawei MateBook D16: Master of Versatility
The MateBook D16 is a bit like the computer’s Swiss Army Knife, an ultra-versatile tool designed to meet the diverse needs of workers, students and other users looking for an efficient and comfortable machine on a daily basis.
The presence of a large 16-inch screen guarantees an optimal viewing experience, IPS LCD technology brings deep contrast, wide viewing angles and brilliant colors. As for the Full HD definition, it ensures detailed images.
By choosing 12th generation Intel Core processors, Huawei does not compromise on performance either. The gain also reaches 20% in single-core and up to 97% in multi-core compared to the previous generation. You have the choice between a Core i5-12450H chip (8 cores, including 4 cores dedicated to performance) combined with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage, or a Core i7-12700H (14 cores, including 6 performance cores) with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage, in either case the performance will be there, whether it’s to decipher heavy spreadsheets or work with creative software or presentations Power point.
In any case, we must salute the work that Huawei has done in the design, it is a really flawless between the screen with ultra-thin edges, the complete keyboard with its numeric keypad, the generous size touchpad, 1080p webcam (also equipped with automatic user centering) and full connection, you could hardly ask for better.
