HP Utilizes AMD PRO A-Series APUs in its New EliteBook Business Notebooks
Today, HP announced a big refresh of its Elite line for business, and one interesting twist is that the soon-to-be spun-off US-based IT company has partnered with AMD on its new devices. So HP will now be utilizing AMD PRO A-Series processors in both their desktops and notebooks.
The three new notebook models from HP include the EliteBook 725 G3, EliteBook 745 G3 and EliteBook 755 G3, which are powered by the AMD A12, A10, or A8 APU models respectively.
The notebooks will be available with a choice of operating system from Windows 10 to Windows 7, and FreeDOS 2.0 as well. HP will be offering accessories like fingerprint sensors and Broadcom for Wi-Fi, while Qualcomm’s X5 LTE model is optional.
Further, HP has incorporated the devices with the company’s Sure Start BIOS which will automatically correct the BIOS if it finds there is an issue – whether malicious or not.
The notebooks are made of a glossy magnesium chassis, and feature spill-resistant keyboards, docking connectors,RJ-45, and even a VGA port. All the three models include 16GB of memory and should be available in September, starting at $749.
