If a CPU has a low average does that mean it is weaker by definition?

Recommended Posts

I just bought a laptop with an Intel Core i7-6500U @2.50GHz    

Novabench reports average score 453    at 2593MHz with a samle size of 579.

This seems quite puny compared to the last three machines I benchmarked (729, 777, 829).   Is my take away that the i7-6500U is inherently slower than other models?

Thanks in advance for you input.

Well, I guess because it is intended for a laptop.  I'll run NovaBench and my own benchmarks when I get the unit.  The previous unit I got had an even lesser CPU (according to PassMark) and it ran Android SDK fine...

Yes, it's a slower CPU than the other ones. The score is generated from a combination of tests that measure how many operations the computer can perform
