HP unveils Spectre x360 15 powered by Intel with Radeon Graphics
As promised from the announcement we received yesterday about the manufacturers that’ll make use of Intel’s new chips, HP has unleashed upon the world their first ever notebook to sport an 8th generation Intel processor with AMD Radeon RX Vega M graphics — the HP Spectre x360 15. The notebook combines power and portability in a thin, light, and beautiful frame.
The Spectre x360 15 is geared towards consumers looking to have a powerful companion with a small footprint and relatively thin profile. As such the notebook comes in at a thickness of only 19.45mm and a weight of 4.6lbs (2.1kg). HP is even touting that the notebook has enough oomph for intensive workloads and heavy video editing in 3D and even 4K content. The device itself features a gorgeous 360 convertible body with a 4K touch display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4, a set of quad speakers from Bang and Olufsen, and a promising battery life of up to 13 hours and 30 mins (or so HP claims). It also supports HP’s own Tilt Pen, sold separately, for use with on-screen content creation on software such as Windows Ink.
HP even bumped up the security of the notebook as they’ve included a fingerprint scanner and an IR Camera for logins with Windows Hello. Other than that, the notebook also features some sweet connectivity options with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, a USB 3.1 Type-A port, HMDI, a combo audio port, and an SD card reader. While the star of the show is definitely the variant that is powered by Intel’s 8th Gen Core i7-8705G processor with Radeon RX Vega M graphics, a much cheaper variant powered by a Quad-core 8th Gen Intel Core processor with NVIDIA’s GeForce MX 150 graphics with longer battery life exists.
