Edit your 4K 360 videos 6.54 3 faster. Editing that used to take about 6 minutes can now be done just under a minute.
Get an amazing entertainment hub—stream 4K UHD videos, power virtual reality, and play the most demanding games. With 4x more pixels on screen than traditional HD, you can enjoy sharp, lifelike visuals, complex shading, and fast frame rates—all with virtually no stuttering, buffering, or lags. And be ready for revolutionary immersive experiences yet to come.
Now everyday computer tasks can happen faster. Edit photos and videos seamlessly. Move between programs and windows quickly. Multitask easily. Better still, all that performance comes with up to 10 hours of battery life4 3, so you can take your computer wherever you go without worrying about cords and plug points.
At 12x the speed of a 1x1 802.11 b/g/n typically found in 5 year old PCs, our latest Intel® Wireless-AC 2X2 with 160MHz channels delivers Gigabit WiFi speeds. Experience smoother gaming and 4K UHD video streaming, faster file transfers and backups, and two antennas for reliable connections throughout your home.
Simplify your life with more natural interactions with multiple voice services that help you search the web, control the lights and temperature in your home, play music and even shopping with the sound of voice whether at home or on the go.
Embedded Multi-die Interconnect Bridge (EMIB) acts as an intelligent information bridge between the discrete graphics chip and high bandwidth memory, allowing those components to be bundled closely together in the same package. This creates space savings, which enables innovative thin and light devices that still deliver the performance to power your most demanding content creation, gaming and VR experiences.

Benchmark results were obtained prior to implementation of recent software patches and firmware updates intended to address exploits referred to as "Spectre" and "Meltdown". Implementation of these updates may make these results inapplicable to your device or system.
Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark* and MobileMark*, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.
