Chuwi GemiBook xPro showcased with modern Intel processor and lightweight design
Chuwi has introduced a new entry in its GemiBook series. While the company tends to equip its laptops with older processors, the GemiBook xPro relies on current-generation hardware. Chuwi continues to use Intel processors on its laptops though, rather than more efficient AMD Ryzen options.
Specifically, the GemiBook xPro relies on the Intel Processor N100, a quad-core part from the new Alder Lake-N series. For reference, the Processor N100 is an entry-level processor that contains 4 of a possible 8 E-cores. As such, the processor does not support Intel Hyper-Threading. Additionally, the Processor N100 clocks between 1.0 to 3.4 GHz on a 6 W TDP with a 10 nm manufacturing process underpinning it. Moreover, Intel equips the Processor N100 with a UHD Graphics Xe iGPU that possesses 24 Execution Units (EUs) and can boost to 750 MHz when needed.
Elsewhere, the GemiBook xPro has a 14.1-inch IPS display that resolves at 1,920 x 1,080 pixels in a 16:9 aspect ratio. According to Liliputing, the laptop should also feature Bluetooth 5.2 and WiFi 6 connectivity, as well as a six-row chiclet keyboard with full-sized arrow keys. It appears that Chuwi has equipped the GemiBook xPro with a relatively large trackpad too, although its accuracy remains to be seen at this stage. Chuwi adds that the GemiBook xPro weighs approximately 1.4 kg, has a 180-degree hinge and its 19.9 mm thick. The GemiBook xPro should be available soon with 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD for about US$300; other details like battery capacity and port selection remain unknown at this stage.
