Gigabyte Injects Discrete Graphics Into New U-Series Ultrabooks

Gigabyte and Nvidia tag team the Ultrabook scene.

In terms of portability, an Ultrabook is a great solution for taking work with you, but what about when you want to unwind with a bit of gaming? Integrated graphics hardly cut it, so Gigabyte went and tapped Nvidia to power its U-Series of Ultrabooks. These new notebooks pack a potent one-two combo consisting of 4th Generation Intel Core processor options (Haswell) and Nvidia GeForce GT 750M graphics with 4GB of dedicated video memory.

The largest and most expensive of the three new Ultrabooks is the U35. It’s a 15.6-inch notebook with a Full HD 1080p display, Core i5 4200U / i7 4500U processor options, 8GB of DDR3L-1600 memory, support for two 512GB mSATA SSDs and two 1TB HDDs, two USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI output, and various other tidbits. Pricing ranges from $1,099 to $1,699.

Below that is the U24F, a 14.1-inch Ultrabook with a 1600×900 resolution. It boasts most of the same features but only comes with a Core i5 4200U processor option and can hold a single 256GB SSD or 1TB HDD. Depending on the exact configuration, it will run anywhere from $1,099 to $1,599.

Finally, there’s the U24T. It too is a 14.1-inch Ultrabook but with a touchscreen display and 1366×768 resolution. Pricing will range from $999 to $1,499.

All three models have the same GPU, and all three will be available in late July or early August.
