We’re fans of HP’s Spectre range, and the 15-inch indication is finally getting its spin to be rested to Intel’s latest and biggest processors at this year’s CES.
The new Spectre x360 15 is one of the first systems to be announced that uses the new Kaby Lake-G processors from Intel. These processors mix an Intel CPU (with its own integrated GPU) with an AMD GPU, all within a singular package.
While Intel has positioned the Kaby Lake-G as a gaming chip—the company’s benchmark scores are all games—the Spectre x360 15 doesn’t have the common splendid LEDs and ornate pattern of gaming systems. It uses HP’s “Dark Ash Silver” with “Copper Luxe Accents” tone scheme that we’ve seen on a few of the company’s machines over the last few years. The tone scheme is appealing and serious, but with adequate accents to supplement visible interest.
The new Spectre should infer a versatile performer; while it’s positively going to be a good choice for 1080p gaming, it also has a 4K, 15.6-inch Gorilla Glass 4 hold screen, with support for HP’s Tilt Pen, and a 360-degree hinge. As such, it should infer to be a plain artistic and artistic device. Connectivity includes two Thunderbolt 3 ports for high-speed peripherals, and it sports both fingerprint and IR camera logins with Windows Hello. That’s all corroborated by 13.5 hours of battery life.
If the thought of a processor that weds Intel and AMD record is just too much, HP is also selling the appurtenance with an Intel Kaby Lake-R processor, joined with an Nvidia GeForce MX 150 GPU.
HP has also announced a rested chronicle of its Envy x2 hybrid tablet. The 1.65lb, 12.3 inch, 1920×1280 inscription has a detachable keyboard/cover/stand, a fanless Kaby Lake processor, Windows Hello facial recognition, stylus support, and 5MP front/13MP back webcams. Integrated LTE is optional.
And if you don’t wish an Intel chip at all, an ARM chronicle of the Envy x2 was announced last year. HP claims as much as 20 hours of battery life, with integrated LTE, with the same screen, keyboard, and stylus support.
