(The following text applies only to the models with QHD (3200×1800) screens. The FHD (1920x1080) model is *not* affected.)The disabled Intel HD Graphics 4600 also has several adverse consequences. The power consumption during low load is high and thus the battery runtimes clearly remain behind the possibilities despite the high-capacity battery and Intel's QuickSync Video cannot be used.
