Ultrabooks will fail because their graphics horsepower is too weak compared to the A8 or A6 AMD APU.

Which is useful for people who use ultrabook how? As long as it can playback 1080p, GPU doesn't matter.

If the demand picks up I'm sure AMD will push their own version of the ultrabook form factor.

__-_-_-__with a thunderbolt port and an external graphic card they can transform themselves into high-end desktops


Yeah because light peak has been so well adopted so far....

/troll off

I think this is a great idea, as it will push down the cost of msata drives and increase their capacity's. Which will really be a requirement for the windows 8 tablet arena. (running windows from a SD card is horrible)

Doubt external graphics cards are ever going to happen. They were being pushed 3+ years ago and never made it out of CES.

Any device as big as an ultrabook, especially a brand new product, must be able to "do it all" which would include at an absolute minimum, A6/A8-quality gaming and also 1080p playback as you pointed out. It must be able to vastly outperform anything smaller than it.

Intel needs to concentrate on building the fastest CPU's instead of trying to build a wannabe iPad clone. Intel just lost business to Marvell, which will replace intel in google televisions. AMD's A6 and A8 APU's will guarantee AMD's dominance in laptops (and newer slim ones too!) for years to come.

what, no ssd from intel's own? i heard some bad stuff about ocz's firmware.
from the rumors, looks like ivb can make a good ultrabook cpu-gpu combo. llano yields are so low that no one will use it for mass production. that's what apple did anyway - dumped amd (because of glofo) because they couldn't deliver. llano will never guarantee anything for amd. i am not saying llano is bad (it's great actually)... i'm saying that it's not available enough.
amd's next bet is with trinity, not a8 (llano). trinity is better suited to compete with ivb in the ultrabook sector. since both ivb and trinity are unreleased, it's tough to say who will win in terms of overall performance. but it's easy to speculate: ivb is die-shrunk sandy bridge - intel's successful arch. while trinity will have piledriver cores - that offer roughly 15% performance increase over bulldozer and cayman class (not gcn) igp.

Don't care about this "ultra books" at all.
But I would love for mSATA to be on more motherboards and become bigger in size and cheaper $$.

What crap, man! Which new product could ever "do it all"? Everything has a purpose in life. Or non-life. Whatever. Tablets can't play crysis, for example, because they're not meant to. Same thing here. And i'm not saying that AMD shouldn't have their APUs in ultrabooks, all i'm saying that stop complaining about something that's not worth complaining about.

what makes you think ultrabooks are for gaming ?, what about productivity,browsing, excel ?, and the odd movie
