Reviews for the Samsung ATIV Book 8 Touch 880Z5E X01
Touch update. Same chassis and hardware, different name. Samsung adds a touchscreen to a Chronos 7 series model and renames the notebook in the process. Like the predecessor, the ATIV Book 8 Touch still ships with a potent Core i7 processor and a dedicated Radeon GPU. How the notebook performs and compares to its competitors are the subjects of this review.

Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
