ThinkBook 14p 2024 Leads Meteor Lake Trend

A good compromise between the more expensive ThinkPad series and the more affordable IdeaPad is provided by the Lenovo ThinkBook range

With Nvidia GeForce RTX 2050 graphics and Intel 12th generation Alder Lake processors, the last Lenovo ThinkBook 14 G4+ made a reappearance at CES 2022

It appears that Lenovo is finally updating the ThinkBook 14 with new OCulink connectors and Meteor Lake processors

The forthcoming Lenovo ThinkBook 14p will support OCulink (Optical-Copper Link) as an eGPU connector substitute for Thunderbolt 4, according to Chinese publication ITHome

The maximum bandwidth that OCulink provides is 16 GB/s, which is equivalent to PCIe Gen 3 x16 one-way. When you contrast this with Thunderbolt 4’s 5 GB/s and Thunderbolt 5’s 10-15 GB/s bandwidth

M.2-to-OCulink adaptor used by the Minisforum EliteMini UM780 XTX operates at PCIe Gen 4 x4 speeds (63 Gbps). In a similar vein, the eGPU dock GPD G1 featuring an AMD Radeon RX 7600M XT has a 63 Gbps OCulink port

Lenovo will sell the ThinkBook in three different configurations: ThinkBook 14p, ThinkBook 16p, and ThinkBook 13x convertible, according to ITHome
