ASUS Confirms Upcoming Ultrabook with Hi-Res Screen
Asus has revealed an upcoming ultrabook which boasts of a 1 GB NVIDIA GeForce GT620M graphics card running alongside an Intel Ivy Bridge processor. Called the Zenbook UX32VD ultrabook, this device was seen at a recent event in Taiwan.
The Zenbook UX32VD joins the slew of powerful new devices including two ultrabooks, called the UX21A and UX31A. Both of these devices have high resolution screens of 1920 x 1080 pixels measuring 11.6 and 13.3 inches diagonally.
Meanwhile, the Zenbook UX32VD ultrabook is packed with the third generation Ivy Bridge processor which has integrated graphics. This technology enables the ultra slim notebook to support full HD 1080p videos as well as 3D gaming. The device will also come with a Solid State Disk (SSD) and wireless display (WiDi) functionality.
Several flavors of this ultrabook are expected to hit the market, which could retail from $800 to over $1000. The cheaper models will have a Hard Disk Drive instead of a Solid State Disk, and a lower native resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. These budget devices will also not have NVIDIA graphics, which significantly raises the price of the ultrabooks.
