The 13.3-inch Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite was only powered by AMD A-Series processors in the past and now it finally gets updated with fourth-generation Intel chips as well. The new models are fitted with dual-core fourth-generation Intel Core i3 chips and have been spotted on CyberPort, a German online store.

The Intel-powered Samsung ATIV Book 9 Lite is powered by an Intel Core i3-4020Y processor with Intel HD 4200 graphics. This combination is more powerful than the usual AMD A6-1450 chip with Radeon HD 8250 graphics, scoring 2,333 points in the PassMark benchmark, a solid improvement from the only 1,653 points achieved by the old AMD-based models.

Priced at 700 EUR (roughly $900), the refreshed ATIV Book 9 Lite holds the same major technical specifications as before, except its processor - 13.3-inch display with 1,366X768 pixels, 4 GB of memory and 128 GB SSD internal storage, micro HDMI, mini VGA, two USB 3.0 ports, WiFi connectivity and Bluetooth. While the AMD-based models are loaded with Windows 8, it seems the Haswell-powered ones will come with Windows 8.1 out of the box.

Unfortunately, it is not known when and if this updated ATIV Book 9 Lite will be available in the US yet.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
