  • UHD/4K models now work with Optimus, which was not possible on the M4800
  • Overall battery life improvements
  • Full sized DisplayPort replaced with mini-DisplayPort and VGA port removed
  • Speakers have changed from upwards firing at the top of the palmrest to downwards firing at the front of the laptop (sound reflects from table)
  • CPU and dGPU heatsinks are now joined together rather than separate
  • Platform supports DDR4 and up to 128GB RAM rather than 32GB DDR3 max in M4800

Tested the Quadro T1000 on 7520, works fine but just like in the M4800, it doesn't seem to work in dedicated mode.

Will post thermal differences soon in M4800 vs 7520
