AMD Mendocino into 2-in-1 tablet
Alldocube has unveiled their latest product, the iWork GT 12, a fusion of tablet and laptop within a single device.
In 2022, AMD introduced the Ryzen 7020 CPU series. As the name suggests, it incorporates of Zen2 architecture, and these processors are tailored for less demanding work. AMD initially targeted these chips, dubbed “Mendocino,” for lightweight devices, effectively replacing the Intel Ice Lake series according to official marketing slides.
As the Mendocino family expanded, AMD introduced the 7020C series, specially crafted for Chromebooks. This expansion now extends to Alldocube’s latest creation, the iWork GT 12. This 12.6-inch 2-in-1 device seamlessly transitions between tablet and laptop modes when the screen is attached to the detachable keyboard.
Under the hood, the AMD Ryzen 5 7520U takes center stage, offering a quad-core CPU with a boost clock of up to 4.3 GHz. It relies on the Zen2 architecture and is complemented by the Radeon 610M integrated graphics based on RDNA2 architecture. While the integrated graphics provide users with access to 2 Compute Units, they fall short of high-performance and gaming capabilities but remain sufficient for the power-efficient demands of a tablet. After all, the system is called ‘iWork’.
The company confirmed that their new tablet will be released on September 12th. It appears that this will be a global launch as the company has teased the product on its main social media profile as well. Pricing is not yet confirmed, though.
