Asus has quietly slipped a new Vivobook 14 onto its global website. This doesn’t appear to be an overhaul of the notebook, instead offering more of a minor refresh to Intel’s newer eighth generation Core processors.
The new Vivobook 14 comes in two variants: the X411UA and the X411UQ. Both offer a choice from the Core i3-7100U, Core i5-8250U, and the Core i7-8550U; with up to 16GB RAM. Storage comes in the form of a SSD and HDD combination; which varies depending on model.
Where the two actually differ is in the graphics department. The X411UA offers a choice between Intel HD Graphics 620 or Intel UHD Graphics 620; while the X411UQ is equipped with an Nvidia GeForce MX150 with 2GB VRAM.
Ports are still about the same, offering HDMI, USB Type-C, USB 3.0, and dual USB 2.0 ports. Crucially (for some), It also ships with an SD card reader.
There’s no telling how much the updated Vivobook 14 will cost, or when it will actually be appearing in markets. Chances are more information will be made available at CES in January.
