Powered by AMD’s A-series Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) that combine leading-edge CPU cores and powerful discrete-graphics onto a single die of silicon, HP’s new notebooks offer solutions for consumers, small and midsize businesses (SMBs) and large corporations.
— The HP Pavilion dv-series (Pavilion dv6 and dv7) provides the ultimate entertainment notebook experience and is equipped with innovative features such as HP CoolSense, HP True Vision HD webcam and HP Beats™ Audio. The dv-series also offers more than two times the graphics performance compared with previous-generation integrated graphics.
— The HP ProBook 6465b features AMD VISION Pro technology, offers enhanced security and increased performance, while sporting an attractive new tungsten-coloured design with a bead-blasted aluminum display enclosure and smudge- and wear-resistant HP DuraFinish.
— The HP ProBook 4535s combines a durable brushed-aluminum finish in a metallic grey colour in addition to a touchpad with gesture support and an integrated high-definition (HD)(2) webcam.
“HP is dedicated to providing customers a choice when it comes to notebook computing,” said Charl Snyman, Vice President and General Manager, HP Personal Systems Group, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA).“As the worldwide leader in notebook sales, HP continues to develop customisable, reliable and affordable PCs with innovative designs suited for on-the-go consumers to corporate road warriors.”
Powered by AMD Fusion APUs, the HP Pavilion dv- series builds upon HP’s “MUSE“ consumer notebook design philosophy, while the HP ProBook 6465b and 4535s further the company’s “FORGE“ business notebook design framework.
AMD solutions for long-term value and performance
The new notebooks offer AMD A-series APUs, designed to deliver increased processing speed and visual performance with longer battery life. For consumers, HP Pavilion dv- notebooks offer optional dual graphics, balancing performance with power needs by switching between single- and dual-graphics modes. AMD Image Enhance with AMD Perfect Picture HD also automatically adjusts for dynamic colour and contrast, making skin tones appear realistic and video smoother and more vivid.
Business productivity is also improved with AMD VISION Pro Technology and discrete-class AMD Radeon™ Dual Graphics on the ProBook 4535s and UMA graphics on the ProBook 6465b, enabling optimal multitasking for video-conferencing, web browsing and graphics-intensive applications. Additionally, AMD Turbo Core Technology balances performance and battery life for more efficient computing, while AMD AllDay™ Power allows for extended notebook runtime.
“HP and AMD’s relationship continues to evolve as we collaboratively make strides to benefit customers through outstanding technology innovation and improved performance,” said Leslie Sobon, corporate vice president, Worldwide Marketing, AMD. “AMD Fusion APUs offer the perfect mix of power, performance and brilliant graphics to enable the next generation of digital experiences, while VISION Technology from AMD simplifies the PC purchasing experience.”
