Gigabyte has this week launched their new gaming ultrabook it has created in the form of the Gigabyte U2442DT, and which was first unveiled last year, with the addition of a new GPU and touchscreen display.
The newly upgraded Gigabyte U2442DT Ultrabook can be powered by a either an Ivy Bridge Core i5 or Core i7 processor, supported by up to 8GB of RAM.
The new ultrabook is now equipped with a 14-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1600 × 900, 2 x USB 3.0 ports, 2 x USB 2.0 ports, 1 x HDMI and 1 x VGA ports, 1 x Ethernet port and SD card slot.
“If you are looking for portable power in an Ultrabook, the U2442V should be at the top of your list. The design is solid and the insides are packed full of performance components. The backlit keyboard is a pleasure to type on, though there are some quirks with the trackpad that need to be ironed out.
The SSD screams along with tremendously fast transfer speeds and the discrete Nvidia GT 640M graphics are capable of more than doubling graphical performance when compared to integrated HD4000. For every-day mobility we’d prefer something lighter and smaller, but the U2442V is a great desk-to-desk powerhouse, a role that is complimented by the unit’s excellent port set.”
Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet for the Gigabyte U2442DT Ultrabook, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always.
