Sentiment Score[*] 77%
Reviewers from Notebookcheck have found the following[***]:
The updates are limited to a refreshed Intel processor (10th generation) as well as the slightly more powerful GeForce GTX 1650 Ti Max-Q. There is currently no corresponding topseller unit for regular customers and you cannot customize the X1 Extreme Gen3 at Lenovo right now. For about 1950 Euros, you get a Core i7 processor, 16 GB RAM, a 1 TB PCIe-SSD, and a matte 1080p panel.

The ThinkPad X1 Extreme has a six-core Intel Core i7-10750H processor, 8GB of memory, a 256GB solid-state drive, and a 1080p IPS screen. The Extreme has the same matte-black-slab styling that has defined ThinkPads forever. It's a bit bulkier than the Dell XPS 15, though half a pound lighter at 4.0 pounds with the touch screen.
