Project: V is coming along nicely, and we expect to bring you a major update about the industrial design soon, as well as some other cool news! But in the meantime let’s talk about something that everyone’s been asking about, and haven’t yet covered…
A lake of tigers
Let’s cut right to it:
The Tiger Lake processors in the new V will be energy-efficient quad-core models with intel’s upcoming Xe graphics, which will give our new device quite a leg up on its predecessor in terms of performance. Of course they also feature Thunderbolt, so if the integrated graphics don’t suit your workload eGPU can be used.
One thing to note, is that the CPU we’re using will require more cooling than a passive heatsink can provide. As such, our engineers have already been hard at work to design and test an active cooling solution. Our aim is to get the benefits of the fan when your V’s hard at work, and to keep the fan quiet or even turned off when the extra cooling performance isn’t required.
Intel provided the core of Eve’s first crowd-developed product, so we have worked with them in the past. We look forward to doing so again, and are convinced that Intel’s 11th Gen Core i5s and i7s will make the new V the best 2-in-1 it can be!
What about Team Red?
We are aware that AMD has been kicking up dust in the CPU world recently. And if we had somehow missed it, your comments here in the community would have left no doubt that we would be remiss if we didn’t contact them. So we did, and they’ve been very helpful! We’ve reviewed their offerings for viability, from as early as before the project was announced, all the way to mere weeks ago. Though we were not able to find a processor that fits with our project this time around, AMD is constantly developing new platforms, and it’s always possible that a third-gen V might play for the red team!
Awesome stuff to come
As hinted before, we’ve got big things in store for Project: V, and we’re excited to tell you all about them… soonTM. Until then, be sure to let us know what you think about Tiger Lake chips in the new V!
