The display is also Dolby Vision rated, and has a brightness rating of 450 nits.
When it comes to performance, Lenovo allows you to configure the ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga with up to an 11th generation Core i7 vPro processor with up to 16GB of LPDDR4x memory; likewise, up to a 1TB SSD can also be configured in the system.
