With the SQLite benchmark the Motile M141 was performing similar to the Ivybridge~Haswell era laptops with their basic solid-state drives but not as fast as the higher-end laptops tested with their faster storage.

The Vega 3 graphics of the Ryzen 3 3200U on the Motile M141 are better off than Intel's very common Gen9 graphics... In the case of ET: Legacy as the open-source project still letting Enemy Territory take on new life, the Ryzen 3 3200U even delivered better performance than the Core i7 1065G7 Ice Lake processor. Obviously the Kubuntu Focus laptop with its NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 wins by a wide margin.

The Xonotic performance for this cross-platform shooter game also put the Ryzen 3 3200U with Vega 3 graphics ahead of all the Intel laptops with Gen9 graphics or older. Not bad for this being a $199 laptop!
