HP Briefly Lists AMD Trinity, Intel Ivy Bridge Notebooks

By - Source: HP | B 24 comments

HP Thailand apparently leaked some information about upcoming notebooks that can be purchased with Intel Ivy Bridge and AMD Trinity processors.

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

    I've already typed all of this in the comments section of previous ultrabook articles.
    AMD's brand "Ultrathin" notebooks are cheaper than ultrabooks.

    But they suck as hell. I would pay more and just get an Ultrabook, or better, get a Samsung Series 9 or MacBookAir 13.

    AMD has nothing to compete with Ivy. Those transistors are oh so sweeeeeet.

    frozonici hope Trinity beats Ivy bridge, i am not an AMD fanboy or anything, i just dont agree with monopoly.


    There is nothing wrong with monopoly if the company continues to innovate and not gouge prices. It's monopoly with the sole intent for more profit that is devastating.

    60% market share isn't a monopoly. I'm neither an Intel nor AMD fanboi (though I tend to root for the underdog aka AMD), but Intel has just been doing it better/longer than AMD. Hopefully AMD will get their calcs per cycle up and compete more. And don't forget, Ivy has 2 GPU on die along with the 6 cpu cores

    Yes, but what about Thunderbolt in non apple laptops. Are we there yet?, are we there yet, Are we there yet?, are we there yet?...

    And don't forget TOMS, when thunderbolt does arrive on non apple laptops, let the reader know the model number and facts about the thunderbolt hardware i.e. number of channels available [full or half], integrated or discrete, etc.

    Is this not the perfect definition of Intel???

    The only reason they stopped gouging prices and began to innovate in the first place was because of AMD

    Companies aren't charities, given the chance, they would love to charge as much as they could if possible and eliminate the competition.

    looking forward to trinity. Bought a Llano(weakest llano, laptop A4 dualcore) and it turned out alot better than Id hoped for gaming for the money.plays any UE3 and valve games on high at 20-30fps. But still not good enough to play some games decently(shogun 2 and witcher 2 is crippling). If theres a significant boost in both graphics and cpu power Id buy a trinity laptop this christmas.

    an Ivy bridge with similar onboard graphics would likely cost me my ass, so I dont think Id get one.

    cant wait for both these lines to be released. eager to see Ivy and trinity performance.

    Still waiting for a computer with a dedicated card for under $600.

    Ivy Bridge chips are presumably under production now. At least, hope so.
