Intel’s Jasper Lake processors are inexpensive, low-power chips with featuring the company’s 10nm Tremont CPU core architecture. Officially unveiled in January, they’re expected to arrive soon in laptops like the next-gen Acer Chromebook Spin 511 and 512. But it looks like they’re also headed to tablets.
Chinese PC maker Chuwi is starting to show off a new Chuwi Hi10 Go tablet with an Intel Celeron N5100 Jasper Lake processor. It’s a Windows tablet with a 10.1 inch display and support for a detachable keyboard, and the Hi10 Go is expected to be available for purchase in April.
The tablet sports a 1920 x 1200 pixel IPS LCD touchscreen display with a 16:10 aspect ratio, 6GB of LPDDR4 RAM, and 128GB of eMMC storage. It has a 22 Wh battery, two USB Type-C ports, HDMI support, a 3.5mm audio jack, and a microSD card reader.
In addition to a detachable keyboard, the tablet supports an optional digital pen for pressure sensitive input.
Powered by Intel’s Celeron N5100 6-watt, quad-core processor with a base frequency of 1.1 GHz and support for boot speeds up to 2.8 GHz, Intel says the new processor should deliver up to a 35-percent performance boost over the previous-gen Celeron N4100 processor, which is a 14nm chip with top burst speeds of 2.4 GHz and a slower, older integrated graphics solution.
I still wouldn’t expect the Chuwi Hi10 Go to be a speed demon. Jasper Lake chips are still designed for energy-efficient, wallet-friendly products rather than high-performance computers. But hopefully Intel can deliver on its promise of performance gains for low-end devices like Chuwi’s new tablet.
Pricing for the Hi10 Go should be announced closer to availability.
Isn’t it a Celeron N5100?
Yep, that was a brain fart on my part. I’ve updated the article. Thanks!
Liliputing feels like the PR blog of Chuwi, which I can’t not like 🙂
Do you notice, how the chinese get first the new tech and bring out devices with it over established usa/taiwan brands?
Inpatiently waiting for 14/15 inchers with this processors.
I am hoping for a new gen of those small cube pcs around 200 usd with this as their base but fully capable of running with just a single usb-c cable attached. ( PD, display, data )
Where’s the new Compute Stick Intel? There are literally dozens of us waiting.
I’ll want to see reviews first though.
I would call this product a “convertible” or 2-in-1 device. Calling this a tablet (while it may have a similar form factor) is really an insult to tablets.
First, the chipset is not anything like other tablet chipsets… and second the operating system is windows.
This could be the lightest battery powered windows 10 device in history… but please do not call it a tablet.
Windows tablets have been around for longer than iOS or Android tablets.
Sorry about the use of the term “convertible”… that implies a non-removable keyboard (which this does not have). Windows CE tablets were the first… please include the “CE”.
I was referring to this kind of device: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Tablet_PC
I also tend to agree – I use “convertible” to refer to computers with permanently attached keyboards but 360 degree or swivel hinges that let you convert to tablet mode, and I use 2-in-1 to refer to detachables. But I typically only use that nomenclature for systems where the keyboard is included rather than sold as an optional accessory.
So while you can use the Surface pro or Surface Go as a 2-in-1, I usually just call them tablets.
We also may be alone in this fight – Dell routinely refers to its 360-degree convertibles as “2-in-1” computers.
Care to share your source on the official definition of the word “tablet”?
Tablet is a word used to describe the physical form factor. It has nothing to do with what type of chipset it has, or OS.
Long before Android and iOS existed, Windows XP Tablet PC Edition was used on several models of x86 powered tablets. The HP Compaq TC1100 from 2004 is a great example. It doesn’t have an attached keyboard, and I would say it fits the modern understanding of the word Tablet perfectly.
If anything, an Intel powered Windows tablet is far more deserving of using the name Tablet than anything else on the market.
I’m sure we could go all the way back to stone tablets if you want. They don’t have batteries or processors. I’m referring to the 90% of the present market for tablets… ipad, amazon fire, galaxy, and the many android devices.
The first 3 sentences of the description on wikipedia is what I use. I agree with their definition.
I would be far more trusting in the definition of tablet by someone like Brad, who has been around reviewing these form factors forever, than some dude who posted what he thought tablet meant on wikipedia. Just my opinion, but I agree with Brad on this one.
Eh, it’s okay to disagree. Riddick has been around a long time too.
I’m not planning to change my headline or article, because I do think Windows tablets are a thing.
But I understand where Riddick is coming from.
Understood, but you are confusing detachable tablets with convertible laptops. The Wikipedia definition you just shared would specify Windows detachables as formally qualifying as tablets. I understand your point of view, but objectively speaking, the required characteristics all fit the description for tablets. I put a green arrow next to each point where Windows detachable passes the definition test. This includes the 2nd point that we should understand as optional based on the use of the word “typically”:
✅A mobile device.
✅(Optional, given the use of the word “typically”) typically with a mobile operating system.
✅ Touchscreen display processing circuitry.
✅ Rechargeable battery in a single, thin and flat package.
✅ Being computers, do what other personal computers do, but lack some input/output (I/O) abilities that others have.
✅ Resemble modern smartphones, the only differences being that tablets are relatively larger than smartphones, with screens 7 inches (18 cm) or larger, measured diagonally.
✅ May not support access to a cellular network.
Also, here is some clarification about detachables versus convertibles. Convertibles are considered within the industry as ” laptops that can fold back their keyboards into ‘tent’ mode or rotate a full 360 degrees so that they’re tablet-like in form, if not weight.” A tablet with an included detachable keyboard is considered a detachable, short for a detachable tablet. This article “Convertible vs. detachable tablet” from Samsung reflects the accepted industry definition of a tablet signifying that this detachable tablet is indeed a tablet.
I hope this helps.
It’s a tablet. I’m guessing you’re in the minority with your opinion of what a “tablet” is.
