HP Starts Shipping USB 3.0 Envy 15

HP has become one of the first PC companies to ship computers packing USB 3.0 technology. Commonly referred to as SuperSpeed USB, USB 3.0 offers transfer speeds of up to ten times what we've come to expect from USB 2.0.

HP spokesperson Sheila Watson confirmed to CNet that the company is now shipping certain Envy 15 configurations with USB 3.0 ports. "HP Direct (our online store) does now sell the Envy 15 with the USB 3.0 along with the new ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5830 Graphics (DX11)," said Watson.

Watson advised customers eager to get their hands on a model with USB 3.0 ports to configure their laptop with new ATI 5830 graphics and quad-core i7 processor.

    4.8Gb/s /8 = 600MB/s Max throughput

    I just saw one of the Envy 15's in a local hardware store, and boy was it hot just running a slide show! I haven't checked out reviews to see if that's normal, but the new 5830 should use less power idling, so it'll hopefully result in a cooler laptop.
