Intel Tiger Lake is pouncing onto the HP Envy x360 13 and Envy 13 this November alongside Thunderbolt 4 compatibility
Much like the recent HP Spectre refresh, the 10th gen Ice Lake Envy 13 family will soon be available with 11th gen Tiger Lake options up to the Core i7-1165G7. The new processors will elevate both the Envy x360 13 convertible and Envy 13 clamshell to the Intel Evo platform meaning that they will follow certain design specifications related to faster wake times, charging rates, and longer battery life. Their Thunderbolt 3 ports will also be updated to Thunderbolt 4 as per the Intel Evo guideline.
Other than the new CPU update, external design and features remain the same as it was in the previous year. We therefore recommend checking out our reviews on the 10th gen Ice Lake Envy x360 13 and Envy 13 systems to learn more about their respective hardware since most of our comments will carry over to the new 11th gen Tiger Lake Envy 13 SKUs.
As for the larger 15.6-inch Envy 15 family which rely on Core-H CPUs instead of Core-U, HP has nothing to announce at the moment. HP only recently refreshed its 2020 Envy 15 laptop just a few months ago to tackle the Apple MacBook Pro 15.
Expect both the Envy 13 and Envy x360 13 to launch this month on Best Buy starting at $900 and $950 USD, respectively. HP.com will begin selling additional SKUs starting in November.
