When you’re writing about laptops, “spec bump” is often code for “boring.” But here’s a spec bump I’m actually very excited about. Behold: Lenovo has rebranded its Yoga C740 and Yoga C640 as the Yoga 7i and Yoga 6, respectively.
The 7i will include Intel’s “latest” CPUs — presumably the upcoming “Tiger Lake” generation. AMD’s Ryzen 4000 line gave Intel a run for its money this year, so it’ll be interesting to see whether the new chips can bounce back. Intel claims they’ll offer significantly better speeds while drawing less power than previous generations, thanks to its new 10nm SuperFin design. The chips also include Intel’s new Xe integrated graphics, which the company has shown to run modern AAA titles smoothly.
