Lenovo has lifted the curtain on the newest addition to its ultra-thin lineup; The 14” Yoga Slim 7. The Yoga Slim 7 is set to feature one of AMD’s brand new Ryzen ‘Renoir’ 4000 mobile processors, and Lenovo alongside AMD are pushing the Yoga Slim 7 as the world’s thinnest and lightest eight-core laptop.
What Can We Expect From The Yoga Slim 7
The laptop will also be available to buy in Intel variants with either a 14” or 15.4” display and a 10th Gen Core i7 i7-1065G7 CPU and an optional 4K display as well as Nvidia MX or GTX graphics. All in all, the Intel option does boast a decent set of hardware, but lets take a closer look at AMD’s offering.
The AMD Yoga Slim 7 features a power-efficient Ryzen 7 4800U processor, with 7nm processing tech alongside high IPC Zen 2 Core architecture. It has eight cores, sixteen threads, a base clock speed of 1.8 GHz, a boost clock speed of 4.2 GHz, 15 W TDP, and features integrated Radeon graphics with eight cores.
The chip is purported to offer a performance boost of 90% compared to Intel’s Ice Lake Core i7-1065G7, according to AMD. Basically, we are excited to see just what this laptop can do with all of AMD’s latest tech crammed inside it, especially with the lightweight and portable design it’s set to release in.
