Samsung is plotting to announce its updated Notebook 9 lineup next month that will feature none other than the Intel 8th generation processors, resulting in superior performance and efficiency when opposed to the 7th generation chips. Samsung will intend the notebook to tout extreme levels of portability and feature tons of battery life for a Windows 10-based machine so let us dive in as to the sort of specifications that will be found underneath the hood.
Samsung Notebook 9 Lineup Could Feature an i7-8550U Chip With up to 32GB of Memory - Pricing Details Have Yet to Be Unveiled But an S-Pen Will Be Bundled
Armed with a Core i7 processor according to Yonhap News, the new Samsung Notebook 9 could also provide support of up to 32GB of memory. According to Intel, its 8th generation family of processors can deliver up to 40 percent performance and what is more interesting to read here is that the ‘U’ series of chips expected to power slim form factor notebooks and other portable machines will now feature quad-core processors instead of dual-cores.
Aside from this, you will also get a total of 8 threads so that applications that take advantage of multiple threads should be able to run fluidly. Samsung will also be bundling an S-Pen with the notebook, meaning that not only will you get touchscreen capability but you will also be able to transform the machine into a convertible for media consumption purposes.
Details of the Notebook 9 lineup I/O have not been stated but we hope a Thunderbolt 3 port will be a part of it. With eGPU solutions expected to popularize in the upcoming future, we expect more compatibility options to be incorporated by manufacturers.
Samsung did not unveil the pricing details of the Notebook 9, but we’ll fill you in with all the necessary details as soon as we come across them.
