HP reveals Sandy Bridge laptops

Intel turbo boost in side
The maker of expensive printer ink, HP has been listing the specs of its future range of laptops.

If you have a look at the outfit's US product support pages you can see a list of the next batch of  models and their specs. One model has Intel's Core i7-2820QM 2.3GHz processor, which HP says can manage a turbo boost speed of 3.4GHz.

There is also one laptop with an i7-2630QM 2GHz processor with a turbo speed of 2.90GHz. HP makes a big thing about how they have a Thermal Design Power of 45 watts. Quite why we are unsure. Normally mainstream Intel laptop processors have a TDP of 25 or 35 watts which means that these could be chucking out a bit of heat unless HP has done something clever with the cooling.

The laptops have got SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port, in addition to standard USB 2.0 ports. The laptops have ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 and Radeon HD 5470 graphics processors. We expect to see them at CES.

That's pretty impressive. Hopefully that translates to the overclocking capability of the desktop parts.

Or they have been purposefully set to a low default clock to keep them in the 35W TDP envelope as Nick noted, while Turbo only makes them run at the actual clocks but higher thermals.

The greatest thing about this article is that it mentions that these "Sandy Bridge" laptops will have "ATi" graphics and not Nvidia... Must not be one of those '200 design wins' Nvidia's PR spreads.

I'm waiting on Alienware's refresh with the sandy bridges and the AMD 6970 mobile version with 2 SSD hard drives. It will own everything else out there but will run me about 3 grand :(.

Or... you could... you know, build one for 2 grand thats just as fast with a far better case. Just a thought...

45W is a pretty good TDP for a quad-core, the 25-35W TDPs quoted were for dual-core CPUs. The previous 2Ghz quad-core i7 was a 55W CPU, so we're getting a 10W TDP reduction along with our 10% performance improvement, which is nothing to complain about.
