With gaming on the lips of all the notebook manufacturers, even HP is trying their hand at the difficult gamer market.
Italian -based website, Notebook Italia, recently leaked pictures of some ASUS notebooks, structured around Intel’s Santa Rosa platform. Since this is Intel’s fourth generation of the Centrino platform, most new laptops will feature this system. According to Notebook Italia, the Pavilion HDX is the first offspring from the HP-Voodoo PC alliance.
When it comes to processing power and features, the Pavilion HDX will have it all. The unit will be powered by a Core 2-based processors while graphics duties will be handled by a GeForce Go 8000 Series GPU. Given the size of the notebook, there is ample room for four integrated speakers along with an HP Bass Reflex subwoofer. The notebook is also large enough to accommodate a full-size keyboard and an integrated media remote control.
The Pavilion HDX will also feature an ATSC/NTSC tuner onboard and HDMI out. There is still no word on what optical drive will be used by the Pavilion HDX, but expect to see either a Blu-ray or HD DVD unit onboard. Expect to see the Intel Wireless Wi-Fi Link 4965AGN Draft-N network adapter, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, GbE, an integrated webcam, Intel Turbo Memory 2.0 (formally known as Robson) and Windows Vista Ultimate.
