But besides the 5G modem, one of my favorite features is one you don't see or hear. Samsung provides its own custom performance profiles for this laptop including Silent, Balanced, and Performance. Each one of those alters the fan speed to better match your environment. Fan profiles are not new, per se, but Samsung has a fourth one here I've never seen before: Fanless. Whereas Silent only uses the fan minimally, Fanless completely disables it.
As you would expect, turning the fan off will throttle the CPU to prevent overheating, which is reflected in benchmarks. But the result is still impressive. Geekbench performance for single-core is a good 500 points higher than Surface Pro X (SQ2) running a fanless ARM processor, although the Galaxy Book Pro 5G's multi-core falls score is about 1,000 points behind it. On PCMark 10, the Pro X takes the lead at a 5,088 score, while the Galaxy Book Pro only gets 3,555.
But the cool thing here is this is all user-choice. The option to take an x86 laptop with a simple keystroke basically makes it a fanless ARM PC to maximize battery life and keep things quiet is rather remarkable.
