1080p IPS display, Ivy Bridge and GT 620M


During its event in Taiwan, Asus unveiled yet another Ivy Bridge based Ultrabook that has some quite interesting specs, including a 1080p IPS display and Nvidia's discrete GT 620M Fermi-based graphics card.

There has already been some talk that Asus plans to equip its next generation of Zenbooks with 1080p IPS screens but we honestly didn't expect it to happen anytime soon, so we are quite happy that Asus proved us wrong.

The Zenbook UX32VD, as Asus brands it, is a 13.3-inch Ultrabook based on Ivy Bridge CPU with choice of i3-3217U, i5-3317U or i7-3517U. As noted, it feature a 1080p IPS display and packs Nvidia's Fermi-based GT 620M GPU. Although it won't break any records, especially at 1920x1080 resolution, the GT 620M should be enough for some casual gaming. In case you wonder, the GT 620M is a 28nm Fermi chip that packs 96 CUDA cores and works at "up to 625MHz" with up to 1GB of GDDR3 memory paired up with a 128-bit memory interface. We would honestly like to see at least the GT 640M Kepler based GPU but it looks like that's not happening at least not yet.

The rest of the UX32VD specs include 500GB HDD with 24GB flash cache, two USB 3.0 ports, 802.11bgn WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs and a recognizable Zenbook design.

Unfortunately, the price or the actual international release date are still unknown but rumour states it should go for somewhere between US $800 and $1,100 depending on the configuration.
