In its bid to maintain its lead, ILLEGEAR updates two of its popular mid-rangers with new Intel CPUs; namely the ILLEGEAR LAGUNA and Z7. Both now sport the next-gen Intel Coffee Lake H systems, AKA the Intel 8th Generation Core series.
Both now sport the Intel 8th Generation core i7-8750H Hexa-Core CPU. While the base clockspeed is 4.1GHz, the more adventurous sorts can push that to upper performance limits. The two also rock 240GB NVMe SSD offerings. This new change operates in tandem with the 1TB 7200rpm HDD.
As for incremental improvements, there are some tweaks for the hardware to complement the new CPUs. With the ILLEGEAR LAGUNA, the CPU isn’t the only update; the display is also a refresh. Compared to the 60Hz/120Hz IPS SRGB screen on the predecessor, the new entry rocks an upgraded 144Hz display.
The ILLEGEAR Z7, meanwhile, has not much changes beyond the CPU and the associated updates.
