HP Briefly Lists AMD Trinity, Intel Ivy Bridge Notebooks

According to a report by heise.de, HP will be offering Trinity in its Pavilion g4 series, while Ivy Bridge will be available for the Pavilion dv4-5000, dv6-7000 and dv7-7000. HP has since removed the information from its website.

Heise reports that Trinity APUs will be released with a 4000-series sequence number, according to the data sheet. For example the g4 will be integrating an A6-4400M processor. The Intel Ivy Bridge flagship notebook will be the dv7-7000 with a 17-inch screen and the 2.6 GHz i7-3720QM processor, which has not been listed in Intel data sheets yet. the dv7-7000 will also use Nvidia's Geforce GT 650M graphics chip.

The dv6-7000 will get a 15.6-inch display, 2.3 GHz Core i7-3610M processor and a GeForce GT 630M or 650M graphics chip.

Hopefully the official word for the western markets won't be too far off.

    el_hombrebeats ivy bridge how? trinity will have better graphics obviously, but it will still be low/low-mid end. its going to be half the speed of ivy bridge at anything not related to graphics. hopefully half the price aswell

    You forget that even though current AMD processors are slower than Intel's clock-for-clock, they still are very capable and fast CPUs. Not even close to "half the speed of ivy bridge at anything not related to graphics".

    I doubt you'd be getting "half" performance browsing facebook with a Trinity APU, barring some very strong placebo effects. The most CPU-intensive task that consumers routinely do happens to be gaming, and my friend, that is also very much related to graphics, so Ivy Bridge is unlikely to win out there barring a discrete GPU.

    Ultrabooks are ultra expensive and ultra under equipped
