Samsung announced the launch of the first laptop with an Intel Lakefield @ 10nm CPU, we’re talking about the Samsung Galaxy Book S, built around a 13.3-inch touch IPS panel with a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels @ 600 nits that is powered by an unknown Intel Lakefield processor, and is that Samsung only indicates that the processor used is an ” Intel Core with Intel Hybrid technology “.

This processor would have a very low performance, but of course, minimal energy consumption that translates into great autonomy.
Passing through 3DMark Fire Strike showed a yield of 4279 points as a simple reference, AMD Ryzen 5 4500U (6 + 6 – wire cores with 15W TDP) offers performance CPU +10,000 points, although its direct rival really is It would be about the ARM SoCs, so we will have to wait for official performance tests together with the consumption that it entails (it would be comparable to a Snapdragon 835 according to the leaked benchmarks in Geekbench).
