    One surprise
    • 15.6" FHD (1920 x 1080, 300 nits) IPS, anti-glare
    • 15.6" FHD HDR 400 (1920 x 1080, 500 nits) IPS, anti-glare
    • 15.6" 4K HDR 400 (3840 x 2160, 500 nits) IPS, anti-glare
    • 15.6" 4K OLED (3840 x 2160) IPS, multi-touch*
    I didn’t expect that we are going to see FHD HDR. Previously, only UHD or WQHD got to have HDR. I would probably choose the FHD HDR as it makes no sense to have 4K resolution in a 15.6" screen.

    OHHHHH .... Tickle my tassels!!!!!

    Would have rather a 1440P a screen. However, at least a higher end option is available outside of OLED.

    Hopefully PWM free!!!! :)

    I am really eying that 1080p 500 nit display! Even HDR certified for extra epic content viewing. Hopefully, the thermals can keep up with i9. I also that a future low power FHD display becomes a thing, cause that could totally make up for one of the X1 Extremes weaknesses, low battery capacity

    • 9th Generation Intel® Core i9-9880H with vPro (2.30GHz, up to 4.80GHz with Turbo Boost, 8 Cores, 16MB Cache)*
      *Coming Soon
    How are they going to be able to slap an 8 cores cpu without melting a sub 4 pounds chassis? Or would the CPU have to be throttled down below the base clock speed in order to prevent overheating?

    24W more needed for CPU. 15W less needed for GPU. Averages out to about an extra 9W of cooling needed to run at full speed. I think they can make it work with more agressive fans.

    Of course we can always undervolt and use better paste. All things considered, it seems good

    Eagerly awaiting this release since the biggest reason I got rid of my X1E was the terrible screen...

    The 1080p one? Apparently this time around we get high gamut bright screens with HDR... So that is nice!
