Intel is scheduled to officially launch its next-gen chips, code-named “Tiger Lake” on September 2nd. But we already know a few things about them, including that they should bring a big boost in graphics performance.

Now we also know that Tiger Lake chips aren’t just reserved for premium notebooks. HP jumped the gun and posted a product page a little early for an upcoming Tiger Lake laptop that’s part of the company’s budget-friendly “Pavilion” lineup.

The product page for this new HP Pavilion 13 inch laptop has been removed, but @momomo_us has posted a screenshot to Twitter (and there are more details available via a Google cached version of the HP website).

HP Pavilion 13 with Intel Tiger Lake

The notebook is powered by an Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor, which is expected to be a quad-core chip with a 2.8 GHz base frequency and support for turbo boost speeds up to 4.7 GHz. The processor also features 12MB of L3 cache and Intel Xe integrated graphics.

Other features for this notebook include:

  • 13.3 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel IPS LCD display
  • Up to 16GB of DDR4-3200 SDRAM (onboard)
  • 512GB PCIe NVMe M.2 SSD
  • 32GB Intel Optane memory
  • 1 x 10 Gbps USB-C port
  • 2 x 5 Gbps USB-A ports
  • 1 x HDMI 2.0 port
  • 1 x 3.5mm audio jack
  • 1 x microSD card reader
  • 720p webcam
  • Dual array microphone
  • Stereo speakers w/B&O sound
  • WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5 (Intel AX201 wireless card)
  • 42 Wh battery
  • 45W power adapter

The laptop measures 12.2″ x 8.1″ x 0.7″ and weighs 2.9 pounds and features a backlit keyboard and “natural silver aluminum” body.

There’s no word on the price. But if this is what we can expect from HP’s entry-level Pavilion family, I’m looking forward to seeing the company’s next-gen Envy and Spectre laptops with Intel Tiger Lake chips.

  1. I’am going to stick with my Coffee Lake. Was a big jump from previous models. I can still run WIN 8.1 and some other features that are not available on new models.

  2. I do not understand the combination of Optane memory with NVMe SSD. Optane memory is primarily used for cache and the NVMe SSD should be about the same speed.

    1. Current generation Intel Optane drives still outperform the current top-end NVMe SSDs.,38987.html

      The Optane 3D X-point drive scores multiple times higher than Samsung’s Z-NAND drives in the Random tests.

      The only test where Samsung’s drives won was in Sequential tests. Which isn’t really something that benefits people who are interested in Optane drives in the first place. Nobody is doing large file transfers on their Optane drives.

      And that test was comparing Optane to Samsung’s enterprise drives, the ones that sit in a real PCIe slot, not an M.2. I’m not sure Samsung’s consumer drives would even come close?

      1. Although, having said that, I would never buy an Optane drive. NVMe drives are already insanely fast, and I’d rather not waste an M.2 slot on my motherboard with an overpriced SSD.

        1. Optane was a good solution to a problem we had back a few years ago: SSD prices.

          Everyone would prefer just a Pure Nvme setup. Heck, even the Sata-based SSD’s are stupidly good these days (3D Nand, New Cache) such as the WD Blue3D m.2 units.

          As always, greed at Intel held back what was a good product. I would’ve considered using a 128GB Optane with 2TB HDD a few years ago, if only it wasn’t as expensive as just going pure SSD. Today? SSD route is priced more competitively.
