Gigabyte Brings P2542G Gaming Laptop to CeBIT 2012
While the U2442N and U2442V are drawing their fair share of admirers, Gigabyte’s P2542G notebook is revealed to be experiencing a momentary bout of fame as well, though it is still un-priced and un-dated for availability.
The P2542G is a machine powered by an Intel quad-core Core i7 Ivy Bridge central processing unit. This is accompanied by up to 16 GB of DDR3 RAM and supplemented by NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M discrete graphics with 2GB memory.
Speaking of video quality, the LCD measures 15.6 inches with LED backlighting. The native resolution is 1,920 x 1,080, or Full HD as it is more commonly known.
The rest of the specifications are on the same level as the others, especially where storage is concerned. Not only is there a hard disk drive unit (rotary speed of 7,200 RPM) or an SSD available, but even a Blu-ray drive is part of the spec list. Furthermore, buyers will find an HDMI output as well as two USB 3.0 ports, in addition to the regular VGA output, webcam, microphone and everything else.
Finally, Gigabyte chose to divide the air ducting for the CPU and GPU, which means that there are two air vents and two heatsinks. Presumably, this should keep the bottom of the notebook at a reasonable temperature during any game.
