The new series of Lenovo Yoga laptops can now be configured using the latest generation of Intel and AMD processors.
Two new Lenovo Yoga laptops are now available, the Yoga 7i and the Yoga 6. The 7i variant is expected to support the latest Intel processors, which is the Tiger Lake series. On the other hand, the Yoga 6 series will have an AMD Ryzen processor.
The two new Yoga laptops are a refresh of the company’s ongoing series of hardware. Now, the series is equipped with some of the latest hardware in the market.
Lenovo Yoga 7i
The new Yoga 7i is expected to have the latest Intel processor, which is the Tiger Lake series. The company has lost quite a lot of market share due to the emergence of the AMD Ryzen series. Nevertheless, many in the tech company expect Intel to bounce back with the new series of processors.
The processor will utilize Intel’s 10nm SuperFin architecture. This means that the processor will be significantly powerful and power-efficient. The new processor is also equipped with the new Xe integrated graphics.

The Yoga 7i will target the mid-range market, which will set it head-to-head against the MacBook Air. The laptop will be available in two screen sizes: 14-inch and 15-inch models. Additionally, both models support the resolution of up to 1920×1080.
The Yoga 7i can be configured to have up to 16GB DDR4 RAM and up to 1TB of SSD storage configuration. The Yoga 7i will hit the market in November and has a starting price tag of US$799.
Lenovo Yoga 6
At the heart of the Yoga 6 is the tried-and-tested AMD Ryzen 7 4700U processor. The laptop will be available in a single model with a 13.3-inch display. However, there are several configurations available.
The laptop can be configured to support up to 16GB of DDR4 RAM and up to 1TB of SSD storage. The laptop has a 60Wh battery pack, which is big enough for its specs. Considering the power efficiency of the Ryzen 7 processor, the battery should be enough to power it for 18 hours.
Yoga 6 will hit the market in October and will have a starting price tag of US$699. Meanwhile, Lenovo has yet to confirm when the laptop will hit other markets.
The laptop market continues to surge despite the current pandemic. With new hardware releases from AMD and Intel, laptop manufacturers are also releasing new models. The new Lenovo Yoga lineup is just one of the many series that takes advantage of this new hardware.
