Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus Launches with Haswell, 9 Lite with AMD

Posted on 20 June 2013 by


We were all waiting for the evolution of the Samsung Series 9 and so here it is and it includes both Intel and AMD/ The Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus and Samsung ATIV book 9 Lite.

As you can see the design is close (if not the same) as the existing Samsung Series 9.  There’s a 13.3” screen (QHD+ 3200×1800) running Windows 8 on a Intel Core i5-4200U (GMA 4400 graphics) or AMD A6 quad-core. 4GB of RAM and 128GB of SSD are also being announced.

    So, while Asus promised a Haswell chip with GT3 (IRIS 5000) for the Zenbook Infinity, Samsung cheezes out with a HD-4400, which just barely improves on an HD-4000…

    Sadly, that’s good bye Samsung 9 Series from my short list, though it would be my #1 choice otherwise.

    I am really glad someone offers AMD chips in an ultrabook though…

    Was about time.

    Steve, can you answer the question if the unit can scale down from 1800p to 900p while still using the entire display area?

  • Re HD4400


    maybe check the Haswell specs then you’ll see that the type of GPU (4400 or 5000) depends on the CPU type. The stronger and more expensive i5-4 and i7-4 have the 5000 GPU, this is not Samsung’s fault…
