The new MacBook Air will still be more powerful than expected. New items will receive a new SoC M3
New MacBook Airs, including the larger 15-inch model, could still get Apple’s new M3 SoC.
According to fresh data from Bloomberg and 9to5mac, the new laptops are likely to be unveiled at WWDC 2023, as the latest rumors have suggested. However, earlier the SoC M2 was attributed to the novelties, and now they are talking about the M3. At the same time, the new platform should be produced according to the 3 nm process technology at TSMC facilities, and the latest data indicated that it was the M3, unlike the Apple A17 Bionic, that would be produced using an improved 3 nm process technology. And it is not yet clear whether TSMC is ready to mass-produce such products now. If not, then it could be several months between the announcement of the new MacBook Air and the start of sales.
It is also reported that Apple is preparing a new MacBook Pro 13, which will also receive SoC M3, that is, it will not be particularly powerful than the new Air, except that the cooling system will allow you to get more from the platform. Interestingly, sources say that Apple was going to drop the MacBook Pro name for the younger 13-inch model, but still did not dare to take such a step.
31.5-inch 4K screen, Core i9-13900H and GeForce RTX 4050 Laptop in an ultra-slim design. Lenovo Yoga Air 32 is a unique all-in-one PC
Lenovo has introduced a rather remarkable all-in-one computer to the home market in China: Yoga Air 32 features a powerful hardware platform and an ultra-thin body (11.6 mm).
Monoblocks with discrete GPUs can be counted on the fingers, not only is the processor the most powerful in the line, and quite a gaming GPU, but also the case is very thin. True, all this causes a considerable cost – $ 2,400! The Yoga Air 32 has a simpler version – without a discrete GPU. They ask for 1980 dollars for it.
Yoga Air 32 is equipped with a 14-core Intel i9-13900H processor, 32 GB of LPDDR5-6000 memory and a 1 TB SSD. The discrete graphics is the GeForce RTX 4050 Laptop. The IPS screen is characterized by a diagonal of 31.5 inches and a resolution of 4K. It complies with the HDR600 standard and covers 97% of the DCI-P3 color space. Among the interface connectors are HDMI 2.1, USB-C, USB-C with Thunderbolt interface, USB-A. The monoblock also received webcams with infrared illumination for the Windows Hello function and four speakers with Dolby Atmos support.
The Lenovo Yoga Air 32 is currently available for pre-order in China, with retail sales starting May 31st.
Here’s a Pro laptop for you. Lenovo introduced Xiaoxin Pro 16 2023 Core Independent Display Edition – it has a Core i5 processor and no discrete graphics
Lenovo introduced a special version of the Xiaoxin Pro 16 2023 laptop in China: the new model is called the Core Independent Display Edition, and its name indicates the absence of a discrete graphics adapter.
Previous “full” versions of Xiaoxin Pro 16 2023 had either GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop or GeForce RTX 4050 Laptop. But in the Core Independent Display Edition, the Iris Xe video core integrated into the CPU is responsible for graphics processing. The processor is also not the most powerful – 12-core Core i5-13500H, but it is used in all configurations of Xiaoxin Pro 16 2023.
Of course, due to the exclusion of dGPU, the new version of the laptop has become cheaper than previously presented: they ask for $ 800 for it. For comparison, the cost of the GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop version is $1030.
Xiaoxin Pro 16 2023 Core Independent Display Edition received a 16-inch screen with a resolution of 2.5K and a frame rate of 120 Hz, a 75 Wh battery, a pair of USB-C ports with Thunderbolt interface, 16 GB of RAM and a 1 TB SSD. Device thickness – 17.5 mm, weight – 1.93 kg.
OLED display 3.2K, Wi-Fi 7, Radeon 780M and 1.23 kg of weight at a thickness of 13 mm. Acer Swift Edge laptop introduced
Acer has unveiled the Swift Edge (SFE16-43) laptop, which combines a 3.2K OLED screen with the most powerful integrated graphics on the market and is lightweight.
The novelty is based on the Ryzen 7040U processors, including top models with the Radeon 780M iGPU, which is enough to play all modern games, albeit in some cases with minimal graphics settings. The laptop also received a 16-inch OLED display with a resolution of 3200 x 2000 pixels at a frequency of 120 Hz and a brightness of 500 cd / m2.
In addition, the novelty is very light and thin: 1.23 kg and 13 mm, respectively. This was achieved, among other things, through the use of a magnesium alloy.
From the rest, you can note up to 32 GB of RAM, up to 2 TB SSD, Wi-Fi 7, a 1440p camera, two USB 3.2 ports, two USB4, HDMI 2.1, a microSD slot and 65-watt charging.
The laptop will be on sale in July at a price of $1,300.
