Inside, RedmiBook 15 Pro is powered by the latest Intel Core i5-11300H processor. This Tiger Lake CPU features 4 cores/8 threads and boasts a maximum clock frequency of 4.4GHz.
There is no option for discrete GPU here. Thus, you will have to be content with the integrated Irix Xe graphics. The iGPU, with its 80 execution units, trades blows with NVIDIA‘s entry-level discrete solutions like MX350 and MX330.
As for memory, the RedmoBook Pro features 8GB of DDR4 RAM clocked at 3200 MHz. It is paired with 512GB of NVMe SSD storage.

Moving on, the two speakers on this laptop are each capable of 2W of output and support DTS Audio for stereo effect.
