8% larger screen than a surface pro and comes in about 4 ounces lighter (SP+type cover). wonder what the price and battery life are like?Intel Lakefield and Samsung Galaxy Book S is official!
Samsung brings Intel’s hybrid processor to its leading Galaxy Book S, alongside seamless connectivity, mobile design and an expansive ecosystemnews.samsung.com
According to one news it'll be available in late June.
Some are also saying Intel will reveal the full details soon(computerbase.de said it was supposed to be this week).
LTE is available, but only for certain regions.
No, seriously. Check how motherboards look. Before you write another comment like that "smarphones have near 6 inch, there's lot's of space there".If with that question you would like to know what's the percentage of display + battery there, yes i do, that's why i think intel efforts are DOA.
In my past posts i explained why intel is DOA, in that exact same space the other competitors (arm) put higher specs chips for lower prices and more 'mobile friendly'.No, seriously. Check how motherboards look. Before you write another comment like that "smarphones have near 6 inch, there's lot's of space there".
There's no distinction here. In laptops they can have all the memory soldered on the motherboard, or have all of them in an upgradeable slot, or have one soldered and the other in a slot.Anandtech is listing 8GB memory in the device. Does that include the integrated memory?
what is the size of integrated memory? 4GB?
Exactly, although I'd probably not use the word "stacked" since it's confusing here. Foveros is "stacked" semiconductor fabrication - a single package.Lakefield uses the approach in Smartphone/Tablet chips where the DRAM is stacked on top of the CPU package.
I guess 8GB is the sweet spot for this segment anyway, so this is probably what OEMs ordered. It's not a high-performance part, so more RAM would be mostly wasted.In order for them to offer a part with different memory configuration, they'll have to ask Intel for another chip that stacks different DRAM configuration.
I know Lakefield has a 4GB and a 8GB variant. I wouldn't be surprised if 8GB is the maximum it can have. The diminutive package size is a limiter. It's pretty much the size of a single LPDDR4X package.I guess 8GB is the sweet spot for this segment anyway, so this is probably what OEMs ordered. It's not a high-performance part, so more RAM would be mostly wasted.
up to 24% better performance per SOC power3 and up to 12% faster single-threaded integer compute-intensive application performance4.
More than 2x throughput on Intel UHD for AI-enhanced workloads
Dual-Channel LPDDR4X-4266(that is, total of 64-bit width).Up to 1.7x better graphics performance
That explains the announced products.The first Intel processors to feature native dual internal display pipes, making them ideally suited for foldable and dual-screen PCs.
Not bad at all. But not everything is filled yet.
Well, the big Sunny Cove core is probably the only one that can seriously boost (it makes sense since it'll be doing most of the work in heavy loads). I haven't seen frequency figures for the Tremont cores (anyone?).9.5W PL2. That's really low. 8500Y devices can reach 18W in PL2.
You're obviously right. It can't have AVX.No AVX you mean, SSE only. That was known for some time. Also no HT on the big core.
So you felt the urge to jump on an Intel product in yet another thread...It even ends up being worst than i expected and i had my expectations very low.
Like on all Atom-based CPUs.And many limits imposed:
- No AVX1, AVX2 support in 2020?
For now, yes.- Max 8GB ram?
No. But we've been over this.Any old arm cpu will eat this at breakfast.
OEM-only, so even if there was an MSRP given, it would not mean anything.Do we know the prices yet? I can imagine these are for very cheap entry level devices.
This is dead. Probably why recent Macbooks are so subpar. Make the previous generation subpar, and the next generation looks even better.In the future: probably a decent choice for MacBook Air (unless this whole lineup moves to ARM).
Multi-threaded Turbo is 1.8GHz for the L16G7.Well, the big Sunny Cove core is probably the only one that can seriously boost (it makes sense since it'll be doing most of the work in heavy loads). I haven't seen frequency figures for the Tremont cores (anyone?).
