Vizio’s Ultrabook range is being updated this year with touch and AMD CPUs. The Thin + Light Touch laptops come in 14 and 15” sizes, both have Windows 8 and touchscreens and improved keyboard and mousepads – something that was a criticism with the 2012 models.

Samsung Series 5 NP535. Looks like an Ultrabook, is an Ultrathin

Tags: , , , ,


Perfect. One of the first (if not the first) AMD-base ultrathin is on the starting blocks, and it’s built inside the same casing as the Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook that is also getting the Ivy Bridge upgrade. This is the perfect opportunity to get side-by-side testing done. How does the Samsung Series 5 NP530 perform against the $100 cheaper Samsung NP535?  We can’t answer that question now but it won’t take long to get some figures an feedback.

At the AMD financial analysis day a few days ago (FAD) three families of APUs targeting the sub 20W TDP space were announced which means good options and good competition in the mobile computing space and with the low-power ‘Trinity’ application processor unit (APU) an interesting (competitor for Intel + products for us) addition to the thin-and-light market. It’s exciting news and something we’ll be following, and eventually testing, on Ultrabooknews. Here’s my analysis of the facts presented. We’ll be ignoring the AMD C, E and Z series APUS in this article. They are targeted at tablets and low-cost netbook-style devices.

The question here is – What does ‘Trinity’ A-series enable and will it be a true Ultrabook competitor?

Can AMD enable an Ultrabook?

amd_roadmap_1I don’t put question marks at the end of an article unless I really don’t know. In this case I really don’t know if AMD can enable an Ultrabook-like device.

There are talks of a 17W TDP Trinity CPU with the same processing power as the 2011 A-Series and that sounds fantastic although I’m yet to see any real figures. The only conclusion I have come to in my research was what I wrote in December –
