HP has introduced 14 new notebooks that utilise VISION and VISION Pro technology from AMD that transcend most price and performance levels.
Consumers have a choice of VISION Technology across HP Pavilion notebooks, including the dm and dv lines, as well as Compaq notebooks.
Business customers can tailor new HP ProBook s-series, HP ProBook b-series or HP or Compaq notebooks with the VISION Pro Technology from AMD featuring AMD Phenom II, AMD Turion II, AMD Athlon or AMD V-Series processors.
“Businesses and consumers can turn to HP not only for the deepest portfolio of notebook products, but also for a wide range of technology choices to meet specific mobile computing needs,” said Ted Clark, senior vice-president and general manager, Notebook Global Business Unit, Personal Systems Group, HP.
“HP’s commitment to providing customers a choice of technology helps us maintain our position as the worldwide leader in notebook sales.”
HP customers get improved performance on popular applications with the updated AMD multicore processors.
For example, an HP notebook that employs a new AMD Phenom II Dual-Core N620 processor offers up to 69pc faster performance than previous-generation HP AMD-powered notebooks and gets up to 24pc longer battery life.
“Our close relationship has evolved to today’s expansive consumer and commercial product lineup, providing outstanding technology innovation and performance competitiveness that ultimately benefits the customer,” said Chris Cloran, corporate vice-president and general manager, Client Division, AMD.
“VISION and VISION Pro Technology from AMD enables an exceptional visual experience, great system performance and is designed to simplify the PC purchasing experience.”
