Product Description

In May 2020, Samsung added Intel's hybrid Lakefield processor inside the chassis of the Galaxy Book S always-connected PC, improving its performance and efficiency significantly.
The Galaxy Book S is the first in the industry to offer the new Intel Core processor with Intel Hybrid Technology. This processor utilizes Intel's Foveros 3D stacking technology. Compared to Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8cx processor in the original variant, the Intel processor offers full compatibility with Windows applications as it supports natively 64-bit x86 instructions:
Essentially, this new Lakefield processor shares a similar "big/little" architecture with the Snapdragon chip. Here, one Sunny Cove big core and four Tremont small cores are packaged on a single chip, and both run on x86 instruction set.
The Galaxy Book S with Intel Hybrid Technology is otherwise almost a carbon copy of the original variant, with the addition of WiFi 6 support and a different LTE modem (cat 16 instead of cat 18). The two variants will be sold side by side.
