Asus's UX310 ultrabook has been updated to Kaby Lake. It packs a 7th generation Core i-series CPU, 2 GB Nvidia 940MX GPU, and both m.2 SATA and 2.5" storage in a compact, inexpensive package.

The well-rounded UX310UQ by ASUS has just been officially upgraded to Kaby Lake, according to a report by LaptopMedia. We recently reviewed the UX310UQ with Skylake, giving it a solid score of 84%. The update to Kaby Lake should only improve performance and battery life.

The UX310 is the successor to the venerable UX303 series, which was one of the first ultrabooks to ship with a dedicated GPU. The newest UX310UQ packs Intel's 7th generation i-series CPUs, a GeForce 940MX (2GB) GPU, both m.2 SATA (no NVMe) and 2.5" storage options, and up to 16 GB RAM, according to product specifications on CyberPort. The 13.3" notebook also packs a lot of connectivity into its .7-inch, 3.2-lb frame, including HDMI, USB 3.1 Type C, USB 3.0, 3.5mm audio, and an SD card reader.

If you're in the market for an ultrabook with modest dedicated graphics for a reasonable price, the UX310 might be up your alley.
