Laptops with Intel 8th Gen Coffee Lake Processors Debut leow

Laptops with Intel 8th Gen Coffee Lake CPU Processor are starting to make their appearance here leow

https://gizmodo.com/here-are-the-coo...gen-1798671205

However, according to Intel, Coffee Lake CPUs are quad cores, 44% more efficient but with minimum increase in battery life

Initially, the U-series of Coffee Lake CPUs will be released but expect the more powerful H and S series to be available soon starting next year

I am actually looking to see how well will a 6 core processor fare in a laptop. Considering that I have seen my previous gaming laptops with 2 fans hit high 80s to 91 thereabout, the 6 core chips will definitely put the laptop cooling to the test. 4 cores for Intel's ULV series is also pushing the limits since the TDP remains unchanged at 15W. I suspect when doing things like gaming that stresses both CPU and GPU, performance will likely take a hit. Unless the manufacturer uses dedicated graphics, instead of Intel graphics.

Look out for Acer Switch. They have a 13.5 inch 2 in 1 with Nvidia graphics.

Anyway, I am a user of the Lenovo miix 720, and I still think it is a fine 2 in 1. May be not worth paying more than 1.5K now with the new and more powerful Core i5 and i7 8xxx series.

i dont really think that 6 core chips will be coming to laptops this year. most laptops have trouble cooling even a quad core 7700hq, reaching up to 90 deg or throttling in aida64/prime95

why is it using lp ddr3 ram in 2017 smlj.
Ram speed can make significant difference for igpu and for some reason even gaming with discrete gpu. i upgrade from single channel to dual channel ram and got +30% fps in games

got some come out liao, one of them being the asus flip s........ nice, sleek, slim and 16gb ram, 512gb ssd

cept no discrete graphics.......... and the price damn ex leh, 2.5k ? US price is only $1.4k which is ~ 1.9k, they mark up by $500

im waiting for zenbook flip 13,14 and 15 to see their prices... apparently from https://www.anandtech.com/show/11788...14-and-flip-15

13 is $800 USD and above, 14 is 900 and above and 15 is 1k and above........

dunno after conversion would be that cheap boh......... if everything ok and within 2.5k am seriously considering to sink my money into 1 of them

but i kind of doubt it leh, will Asus be so 好死 to sell all so cheap, even around/under 2k with mark-up?
