Lenovo has announced the fourth generation of its flagship ThinkPad X1 Extreme line. The laptop still boasts top-end hardware while still sporting a thin and light carbon fiber chassis (17.7mm / 1.81kg).
The new X1 Extreme features an improved cooling system to ensure the proper operating conditions for the 11th Gen Intel Core i9 H-series processor and graphics up to NVIDIA RTX 3080 (base versions RTX 3050 Ti). The laptop can be equipped with up to 64GB of DDR4 RAM, and the onboard storage can be configured with two 2TB M.2 PCIe Gen4 SSDs.
The 16-inch display is offered in either QHD + or UHD + resolution and a 16:10 aspect ratio. Versions with UHD + matrices have support for Dolby Vision HDR and a peak brightness of 600 nits. The built-in battery with a capacity of 90 W * h should be enough for 10.7 hours of battery life. The laptop is equipped with Wi-Fi 6E, Bluetooth 5.2 modules, and, optionally, a 5G modem. In addition, there is a Full HD webcam (maybe with IR sensors), speakers with Dolby Atmos support, and a fingerprint scanner. HDMI 2.1, two USB-C 3.1, two Thunderbolt 4, SD reader, and 3.5 mm audio jack is available from the connection interfaces.
The cost of the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme starts at € 2099. The laptop will go on sale in August this year.
