In case you haven't noticed, Windows on Arm is getting a major boost with Qualcomm's Snapdragon X Elite and Snapdragon X Plus platforms, which promise to supercharge an emerging generation of AI-powered PCs with excellent battery life. Several OEMs are on board with the initiative, too. One of those OEMs is Lenovo, which is punching its ticket on the Snapdragon X Elite/Plus hype train with its new Yoga Slim 7x and ThinkPad T14s Gen 6 laptops.

Starting with the former, Lenovo's Yoga Slim 7x 14 Gen 9 sports a 14.5-inch OLED touchscreen display with a 2944x1840 resolution (16:10 aspect ratio), 90Hz refresh rate, 100% coverage of the sRGB color space and Delta E<1, 1,000 nits peak brightness, and DisplayHDR True Black 600 certification.

This is powered by a Snapdragon X Elite processor boasting a dozen high-performance Oryon CPU cores (built using an advanced 4-nanometer process) running at up to 3.8GHz in multi-threaded workloads and up to 4.3GHz in single-threaded chores (two of the cores can boost to 4.3GHz, actually), a Qualcomm Adreno GPU, and a dedicated Qualcomm Hexagon neural processing unit (NPU) delivering up to 45 trillion operations per second (TOPS) for AI workloads.
