With the launch of Haswell comes the launch of new mobile processors, and Haswell was really designed from the ground up to be a processor for the mobile market. Gigabyte are taking advantage of this brand new architecture from Intel with a whole cluster of new notebooks. We will bring the details of all of these to you and first up is the Gigabyte U35F notebook. This notebook is powered by Haswell with an option for Core i5 or Core i7 models of your choice. Gigabyte are choosing to provide either a full HD 1920 by 1080 display or a 1366 by 768 display for the more budget conscious consumer. The U35F notebook comes pre-fitted with either 4 or 8GB of DDR3 SODIMM RAM and supports a maximum of 16GB of RAM.
Nvidia Optimus technology allows the graphics to switch between Intel HD 4400 Graphics and Nvidia’s GT 750M. There is an option of a 128GB or 256GB mSATA SSD as well as a 500/750/1000GB hard drive. A DVD-RW is provided as well as two USB 3.0, two USB 2.0, HDMI, VGA, an SD card reader, Gigabit LAN, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 to top off the extensive connectivity options.
A six cell 68.82 watt-hour battery is provided and should have impressive battery life given Haswell’s new power saving technologies for the mobile market. The total weight of this notebook is 2.3KG. No pricing or availability has been announced yet.
