According to a report from Chinese site MyDrivers (via MSPoweruser), Huawei has announced a refresh for its MateBook D lineup of Windows 10 laptops. The new laptop doesn't seem to change much, but it does offer Intel's new eighth-generation processors, which are now quad-core, offering up to a 30% boost in performance.
The dedicated GPU has been improved as well. Rather than the Nvidia 940MX that was used in the previous model, customers will now get an Nvidia MX150.
The original MateBook D was announced back in May, alongside two other Windows 10 devices from the MateBook lineup. The X is a 13-inch laptop with a fanless design, allowing for a thin body, and the E is a tablet that follows up on the original MateBook.
It comes as no surprise that there's no word on a refreshed MateBook E, given that Intel hasn't announced eighth-generation Y-series processors yet. Perhaps more surprising is that there's no news or rumors around a new MateBook X, which was the flagship of the lineup.
The new MateBook D comes in three models: Core i5-8250U, 256GB SSD, and 8GB RAM for ¥5,188, i5-8250U, 128GB SSD and 1TB HDD, and 8GB RAM for ¥5,488, and Core i7-8550U, 128GB SSD and 1TB HDD, and 8GB RAM for ¥6,688. We've reached out to Huawei for more details.
