Lenovo Launches the Yoga Slim 7 Laptop with AMD or INTEL CPU Options During the CES 2020
Let’s begin with the CPU options available for the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 as the CPUs are the only significant difference between the two variants. The rest of the specifications are more or less the same. The Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 laptop has two CPU variants, namely:
- An AMD’s Ryzen 4000 CPU variant which is paired with up to 16GB of LPDDR4X RAM and up to 1TB NVMe SSD, and
- An Intel’s 10th Generation Core ‘Ice Lake’ processor (Core i7-1065G7 with four cores clocked at 1.3 – 3.9 GHz) which is paired with Iris Plus Graphics ‘G7’ with 64 EUs, up to 1.1 TFLOPS compute performance, up to 16GB of LPDDR4X RAM and up to 1TB PCIe SSD. The Intel variant of the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 laptop also has an option for a discrete NVIDIA’s GeForce MX GPU
As far as the display of the laptop is concerned, the AMD variant of the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 laptop features a 14-inch FHD IPS display with a 1920×1080 pixels resolution. The Intel variant, on the other hand, comes in two versions of its own – one in a pure aluminium body and the other in an aluminium body with Slate Grey fabric cover. The former sports a Full-HD IPS display featuring 300 nits brightness, while the latter gives you a choice between a Full-HD touch-enabled LCD IPS screen with 300 nits brightness and an Ultra-HD IPS display which has 500 nits brightness and 90% of the P3 colour space coverage.
Depending on the respective models, the laptop will measure between 14.9 mm – 15.4 mm and weigh between 1.4 kg and 1.5 kg.
