ASUS ZenBook Flip to Utilize Intel Core M CPUs



/ 2 years ago

ASUS Zenbook Flip

Portable 2-in-1 hybrid ultrabooks provide exceptional flexibility for consumers wanting a thin form factor to easily complete rudimentary tasks while travelling. Even though they’re lacking in the power department, hybrid devices allow you to use touch screen functionality in tablet mode or adopt a normal seating position when typing. I honestly see this as a major development in consumer laptops and believe they might bridge the gap between the mobile and PC market. According to a leak from BenchLife, ASUS will unveil their next line up of ultrabooks sporting various hardware configurations very soon.

The ZenBook Flip features a 13.3-inch display and will be available with either a 1920×1080 panel or whopping 3200×1800 resolution. Furthermore, the range is rumoured to launch on April 7th and despite its name, use Intel’s M series of CPUs. The basic setup includes a Core M3-6Y30 dual core processor with a 900MHz base and Turbo Boost up to 2.2GHz. The mid-range Core M5-6Y54 dual core processor utilizes a base speed of 1.1GHz, and Turbo Boost up to 2.7GHz. Finally, the high-end Core M7-6Y75 processor has a base speed of 1.2 GHz, and Turbo Boost reaching a maximum of 3.1GHz.

Other specifications include the choice between 4GB or 8GB of DDR4 memory and a wide range of SSD capacities. You can select a 128GB, 256GB or 512GB capacity which opts for the M.2 interface. The device will weigh a very respectable 1.3KG, contain two USB 3.0 ports, 1 USB 3.1 Type-C, MicroHDMI and an SD card reader. Unfortunately, there’s no current wording regarding the price but at least there’s only a few days until the official launch. Given the upcoming launch of AMD’s Zen architecture and new Intel CPUs on the horizon, I might have expected a staggered release. Nevertheless, I’m interested to see the performance numbers and how well the product line copes with daily tasks.
