    What NVidia GPU does the Iris compare to? Impressive (I think?)

    From AT it varied between the 640m and 650m.
    Its compute performance, however, was much better aside from luxmark.
    Also, it was able to do this with a smaller power budget.

    Can we have a benchmark with the Thinkpad S440?

    Well, is there no way to get in touch with Lenovo?

    In the past nine years of running Phoronix, IBM/Lenovo have never been interested in sending out ThinkPads for Linux testing... The only ones ever covered on Phoronix were ones I purchased.

    A shame really, since they even went and got it Ubuntu certified.

    If we were interested in buying this, do you have a referral link which would benefit Phoronix?
