Gigabyte to update U2442 ultrabook line

Very shortly after releasing the U2442 Extreme ultrabook the Taiwanese company Gigabyte has prepared an update in the form of the U2442F Extreme. Just like the previous model the U2442F Extreme is based on the Intel Ivy Bridge platform.

The new ultrabook is based on a 14-inch display that works at 1600 x 900 pixels and hides a dual-core Intel Core i7-3537U processor at 2 GHz (3.1 GHz in Turbo Mode). The ultrabook supports up to 16 GB of DDR3 RAM and offers either a 256 GB SSD or a 1 TB hard drive and a 128 GB SSD combo.

There’s also an NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M or GT 650M graphics card with 2 GB of VRAM, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, 1.3 MP web camera, a card reader, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports and D-Sub and HDMI outputs. The entire device weighs 1.59/1.69 kilograms and measures 339 x 233 x 18.5-21 mm.

The Gigabyte U2442F Extreme is likely to run Windows 8 just like the other U2442 models. As of now pricing is unknown.
