Samsung Galaxy Book 4 Ultra: Early Benchmarks and Implications

December 04, 2023 – Samsung’s Galaxy Book 4 series laptops, previously rumored to launch on the 15th of this month, are touted as the world’s first AI laptops.

A new Samsung laptop, bearing the model number 960XGL and powered by an Intel Core Ultra 9185H processor, has surfaced on Geekbench. It’s believed to be the next-generation Samsung Galaxy Book 4 Ultra notebook.

However, the laptop’s performance appears to be lackluster, with a single-core score of only 2047 and a multi-core score of 11274 on Geekbench 6.2.2. Surprisingly, these scores are even lower than those of the previously leaked Ultra 7155H model.

According to earlier leaks, this laptop is expected to feature a 16-inch Samsung display with a resolution of 2880×1800, supporting touch functionality and a 120Hz refresh rate. It will come with 32GB of RAM and a 1TB SSD, with an optional Nvidia GeForce RTX 4050 6GB dedicated graphics card.

Additionally, the notebook is equipped with a 76Wh battery and a 140W USB Type-C adapter. It offers a variety of ports, including one USB 3.2, two Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports, one HDMI port, one microSD card reader, and a 3.5mm headphone/microphone combo jack. It features a 2-megapixel camera, AKG quad speakers, Dolby Atmos, and digital microphones.

According to reports from the Korean news agency Yonhap, the Galaxy Book 4 is set to debut about a month and a half earlier than its predecessor (Note: The Galaxy Book 3 series laptops were released in early February this year). The reason for the early release is Samsung’s desire to emphasize the symbolic significance of this new product as the “first AI laptop.”

The Galaxy Book 4 is expected to come equipped with Samsung’s proprietary AI large model, “Gauss.” Notably, this AI does not require data to be transmitted to central servers, indicating that the “Gauss” AI integrated into the laptop will support local processing, ensuring user privacy and data security.
