Today, the LG company announced the arrival of 14 and 16-inch Ultra PC laptops in Europe
I notebook LG (here for more info on the company) of the Gram series, based on Intel, have proved quite popular in the Ultrabook segment. However, its models Ultra PC are built with AMD hardware, and although a 13.3-inch model has been presented in the past, the company has announced i new 14 and 16 inch models.
Both models are based on a processor Ryzen 5 5625U o Ryzen 7 5825U, built on AMD’s Barcelo chips. This unfortunately means that features like USB4, DDR5/LPDDR5 and support PCIe 4.0 I’m out the window. This is because Barcelo is a Cezanne update, which means both families of CPU they are based on the Zen 3 architecture. The upside is that this implies that the prices will be quite competitive, but we’ll talk about that shortly.
Details on the new 14 and 16 inch LG Ultra PCs
The 14-inch model measures 313.9 x 220.45 x 16.3mm and weighs 1.29kg. Instead, the 16-inch model is slightly larger, for obvious reasons, and measures 356.3 x 248.6 x 16.3mm, but remains portable enough at 1.6kg. The display of both 14-inch and 16-inch models has a 1920 × 1200 resolution, with the brightest 14-inch model having 300 nits versus the 16-inch model’s 250. However, to my humble duck, neither display is impressive.
Other features include up to 16GB of dual channel LPDDR4X memoryas far as 1 TB of storage. And again, an HDMI output, a USB-C port with DP Alt mode and USB PD support, two USB-A ports, a microSD card slot, an audio jack and a power connector for the charger. The equipment also includes WiFi 6 e Bluetooth 5.1as well as a fingerprint reader.
