ASUS unveiled its first portable laptop with Intel Tiger Lake CPU and Intel DG1 graphics.
ASUS VivoBook Flip 14 TP470EZ: DG1 + Iris Xe Max?
The VivoBook Flip 14 is a lightweight convertible laptop featuring Intel’s just-announced Tiger Lake processors. It will be offered with either Core i3-1135G7 processors or Core i7-1165G7. More importantly, this is the first laptop officially introduced with Intel’s latest discrete graphics, replacing the NVIDIA GeForce MX series alternative altogether.
ASUS does not directly name the graphics sub-system, but @momomo_us noticed that the webpage’s description lists GPU name as Iris Xe Max. It is unclear if this is the name of the integrated graphics (into Tiger Lake-U processor) or the discrete graphics (Intel DG1).
The Iris Xe Max graphics have already leaked through the SiSoftware Sandra benchmark earlier this month. The leak revealed that Iris Xe Max features 96 Execution Units (768 shaders). Both the integrated Core i7-1165 Xe graphics and the discrete DG1 graphics are to feature 96 EUs.
The 14-inch VivoBook Flip laptop weighs 1.5 kg and it is 18.7mm thin. It features a 14-inch NanoEdge Full HD display with 100 sRGB color coverage. It comes with WiFi 6, Harman Kordon speakers, fast charging, and finger print scanner. As expected from the Tiger Lake laptop, it features Thunderbolt 4 connector.
The pricing and release date of VivoBook Flip 14 are currently unknown.
