Llano powered HP notebook listed

Written by


Quad-core A6-3410MX for about €600
Several German retailers have jumped the gun and posted listings for HP’s DV6 packed with AMD’s upcoming Llano processor.

The 15.6-inch DV6-6110SG is based on the A6-3410MX processor, a quad-core clocked at 1.6GHz, which can overclock to 2.3GHz on turbo. In addition, this particular SKU apparently also features HD 6750M discrete graphics with a 1GB frame buffer. It packs 6GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive.

Here’s the best part of the story. The lowest list price stands at €590 and a couple of shops are listing it at €616 and €659.

Considering the spec, this is very good value. The cheapest 15.6-inchers based on Intel Core i7 quad-cores cost about €650 on the European market. A similarly spec’d HP DV6 with an Intel Inside sticker costs north of €750, so we are looking at a sizable price difference. This basically means that cheaper Llano notebooks, without discrete graphics and other features could cost less than €500. This is in line with expectations, as notebooks based on quad-core Phenoms are already selling for about €450.

If everything pans out right, Llano could become AMD's biggest coup in the mobile market in years.
