CES: HP Spectre X360 with VEGA M

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

At this year's CES, HP has officially announced their Sceptre X360 with VEGA M graphics. It will be running on the Intel 8th gen processor code name Kaby Lake G, with a 15.6" 4K edge to edge display, with support for 10 point touch as well as Windows Ink. Memory starts out at 8GB and can be upgraded to 16GB of DDR4, Storage is 256GB SSD with the maximum of up to 2TB. There are 4 skus to choose from, 2 of them will be for Nvidia and the other 2 for VEGA. Nvidia ones will get Intel 8th gen code name Kaby Lake R. A 90W adapter is for the Sceptre X360 with Nvidia MX150, while the Sceptre X360 with VEGA M will get a 150W adapter. I/O on the Nvidia and AMD are almost the same, HDMI, card reader, finger printer reader, USB 3.0 type A, and charging port. The only difference is the Thunderbolt 3, Nvidia ones will only get 1 Thunderbolt 3 with the other only a USB Type C, a slight downgrade to their current model which has 2 TB3 ports. The VEGA M one however will have 2 Thunderbolt 3 ports. They will be available for order on March 18th 2018.

It actually looks pretty nice, as much as I absolutely hate HP products (aside from their printers).

I appreciate how they said screw thinness and added a little girth for more battery.

I was a little excited about that pen...but why can't anyone incorporate it into the body for storage? Is Samsung really the only one that thinks that makes sense?

I dunno about you guys, but I am pretty excited for the new APUs that AMD is releasing. However, I hope Nvidia also tries the same approach, so there can be competition in the APU market.


Who needs fancy graphics and high resolutions when you can get a 60 FPS frame rate on iGPUs?

I'm only interested to see the performance gap between Zen APUs and last-gen APUs. I don't see Nvidia doing this any time soon

I can understand the no USB-A, but DC jack? Come on man. Do you know how many times I've had a power brick die on me? Especially HP's proprietary DC jack BS?

^^^No one wants that. All the aftermarket laptop power bricks also look like trash, and their multiple tip modularity just sucks. 

 

At least with USB Type C if a charger breaks, just go grab another one, without needing this monstrosity:

who needs those when i can just get this

s-l1600.jpg

dead cheap, only takes 3 huge wires to solder and you can get all 12 in that picture for less than 2$, SO. F-ing. CHEAP.

And don't even need to speak about the female one.

If we're talking about the general consumer, most of them probably do not have the soldering skills required to do so. Most USB-C chargers also have detachable cables, so if the cable breaks, replace the cable? It's better than soldering it back IMO. USB-C chargers (or laptops that rely on USB-C charging) also have better dower distribution for charging their internal batteries. This wont make a difference to most (if not all people) but the old way of charging laptop batteries was a through a buck-boost converter between the DC jack and the battery (along with a Battery management system). From there the power branched off after the buck boost converter from the battery to the rest of the motherboard, display backlight driver, etc. You always ended up with a hotspot near the buck-boost converter. USB-C charging eliminates some of that (not all). But its transparent to the end consumer so who really cares? From an Engineering standpoint,the USB-C charging method is more elegant (but a tad bit more complex).

Samsung does that already, and HP did that with at the very least their old Touchsmart TM2 and HP Eilitebook 2760p (Wacom touchscreens+digitiser pens FTW).

....yet not this one. 8 year old products don't mean much if they don't carry the design forward.
