Panasonic Toughpad FZ-Y1: 4K with Broadwell, without pen and NVIDIA

Scritto da Giacomo Fumagalli. Pubblicato in News, News and Articles

Panasonic introduces the second generation of his 20-inches Toughpad 4K Tablet PC, which is now named Toughpad FZ-Y1: the “Standard” and “Value” configurations are ready to launch, but they lose the pen and the dedicated video card.

Panasonic announces an expansion of its offer, with the launch of a new, professional-oriented Tablet PC: it is the new Panasonic Toughpad FZ-Y1, an evolution of Toughpad 4K UT-MB5/MA6 launched in September 2013.

Aesthetically speaking, the new FZ-Y1 is almost identical to the old Toughpad 4K, and it resumes the wide 15:10 20-inch screen (3840 × 2560 pixel); inside the magnesium and glass-fiber body, however, it is now housed the new Intel Core i5-5300U vPro CPU, combined with an Intel HD 5500 video card.

If the Toughpad 4K was also available with Core i7 CPU and Nvidia Quadro K1000M dedicated graphics card, the two Toughpad FZ-Y1 cofigurations presented today, called “Standard” and “Value”, are not focused on the market of engineers and architects – so they lose the Anoto optical digitizer and thus the ability to write and draw on the screen with the special Bluetooth-connected stylus.

However, the structural features that enable the new Tablet PC to withstand falls from 76 cm are maintained – as well as the wide wired connectivity; designed specifically for professional photography, healthcare, fashion and retail, the new Panasonic Toughpad FZ-Y1 “Standard” included an HDMI 2.0 input, which allows the user to use the Tablet PC as a screen for a more powerful machine; the FZ-Y1 is also attachable to a VESA Mount.


Full specifications included:

  • Intel Core i5-5300U vPro processor
  • Intel HD Graphics 5500
  • 15:10, IPSα 20-inch screen (3840 × 2560, 230 ppi)
  • Passive capacitive digitizer, with 10 fingers multitouch
  • Up to 8 GB of RAM
  • Up to 256 GB SSD
  • USB 3.0: SDXC reader; 3.5 mm audio connector; LAN; miniDisplayPort output
  • HDMI 2.0 input (“Standard” edition only)
  • Smart Card Reader
  • Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi
  • HD Front camera (720p)
  • Weight: 2410 grams
  • Thickness: 12.5 mm
  • 3-years standard warranty

Compatible with the Toughpad 4K UT-MB5/MA6 accessories, including the optional docking station that provides a LAN port, a HDMI output and three full-size USB 3.0, the new Panasonic Toughpad FZ-Y1 will be available in late August with a recommended price of €2499 (£1848) for the “Value” model and €2999 (£2218) ​​for the “Standard” model.  

A third “Performance” model, based on unspecified “advanced features”, will be released in the following months.
