LAS VEGAS, NV — Lenovo has announced its third iteration of the ThinkPad X1 Tablet. The new system is a complete departure from the two prior generations of the ThinkPad X1 Tablets as it uses fully-fledged Intel’s Core i7 CPUs instead of their low-power Y-series counterparts, has a large 13” display, two Thunderbolt 3 ports and no longer supports expansion modules.
The most noticeable upgrade of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Tablet 3rd Gen when compared to its predecessors and direct rivals is, of course, its 13” IPS touchscreen that has a 3000×2000 resolution (thus retaining a 3:2 aspect ratio) as well as 10-point multi-touch and pen support. The larger display with a higher resolution and pixel density vs. competitors (primarily the Surface Pro 2017) will certainly be among the main selling points of the new X1T. The improvements do not end here.
Just like the other ThinkPad X1-branded mobile PCs announced at CES 2018, the ThinkPad X1 Tablet is based on Intel’s 8th Generation quad-core Core i7 CPU with integrated UHD Graphics 620 iGPU. The new SoC is a major progress for the new ThinkPad X1 Tablet. The previous-gen ThinkPad X1T featured a Kaby Lake-Y SoC with two cores and an iGPU running at relatively low frequencies to save power. By contrast, the new SoC packs four cores and faster graphics, a performance boost across the board. Unfortunately for graphics professionals seeking for a higher-performing iGPU, there will be no X1Ts with the Iris Plus Graphics 640 found inside Microsoft’s premium Surface Pro 2017 as there are no Intel’s 8th Gen Core i7 processors with a GT3e-class iGPU. As for RAM and storage, the ThinkPad X1 Tablet can be equipped with up to 16 GB of LPDDR3 and a PCIe NVMe SSD of up to 1 TB.
Moving on to other hardware features of the third-generation ThinkPad X1 Tablet. The system ditches USB Type-A headers but has two Thunderbolt 3 ports (one supporting USB PowerDelivery 3.0 spec), a microSD card reader, a webcam (with or without IR capability for Windows Hello), a rear camera, and a TRRS headphone jack. As for wireless connections, the new X1T has an Intel 802.11ac Wi-Fi + Bluetooth 4.2 module as well as
