The latest Windows tablet from Chuwi has a built-in kickstand, support for a detachable keyboard and for pen input, and some decent specs for a mid-range device, including a 13 inch, 2160 x 1440 pixel display with a 3:2 aspect ratio, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage.

But there’s one spec that makes the Chuwi UBook XPro feel very dated for a tablet released in 2022: its powered by an Intel Core i7-7Y75 processor, a chip that was released nearly six years ago.

The processor is a 7th-gen Intel Core chip designed for thin, light and fanless devices. It’s a 4.5 watt processor with 2 cores, 4 threads and Intel HD 615 graphics. At the time it was a step above Intel Atom-based Celeron and Pentium processors, but it’s an aging processor based on older technologies.

That said, the chip is a little faster than the Intel Celeron N4100 chip that powers the Chuwi UBook X tablet that launched last summer, particularly when it comes to single-core performance.

But it seems odd to slap the “Pro” name on a new device shipping with such an old processor.

Other features of the UBook XPro include a 38 Wh battery, 5MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, support for WiFi 5 and Bluetooth 4.2, a USB Type-C port, two USB 3.0 ports, a headset jack, micro HDMI port, and microSD card reader.

The tablet measures 0.36 inches thick and weighs just over 2 pounds.

The Chuwi UBook XPro is available from Banggood for $490. That price is just for the tablet though. You’ll have to pay extra for a keyboard and Chuwi’s H7 pressure-sensitive stylus.

  1. Actually the Kaby-Lake 7y75 is still pretty close to modern spec for a sub-5W processor. Intel has upped their IPC by about 30% since then in the latest models, but not without also increasing the power consumption. The new 4-E-core only 12th gen processors won’t quite reach the same single thread performance, will outperform a little in multi-core, but will still require more power than this older but highly processor designed for fanless mobile devices. There’s a reason Intel didn’t put out 8y 9y 10y 11y etc. The 7y family kept doings its job leading in this space. Until Apple cremated them with the M1.

    1. You’er not getting WIndows 11 though, it seems kinda weird to release a computer that won’t get new updates past 2025
