Samsung makes Series 9, Series 5 and Series 3 lineups with Ivy Bridge official
The South Korean manufacturer has today officially announced brand new models throughout their numerated notebook families including the Series 9, Series 5 and Series 3. All versions will be updated with Intel’s 3rd generation Core ix CPUs and sport discrete Nvidia 6xxM graphics. The Series 5 in particular will include a duo of new models with enhanced JBL speakers and a sub-woofer for improved audio quality.
One of the new Series 5 models will be the NP500P4C-S01, a 14-inch notebook sporting a Core i5-3210M CPU, GeForce GT 630M GPU, 1366x768 resolution display, a whopping 8GB RAM and a 500GB HDD. A larger 15.6-inch NP550P4C-T01 will be made available as well, but its larger size will allow it to run on a faster Core i7-3610QM CPU albeit at the same display resolution and Nvidia GPU as its smaller brother.
“The power and speed of Intel’s latest processors have enabled us to create even faster, more efficient laptops,” said VP of Samsung’s Business Division Todd Bouman in the press release. All of the updated Samsung models above, including the IVB-equipped Series 9 and Series 3, are expected to be available later this month in the United States. The 14-inch and 15.6-inch Series 5 units will retail for $799 and $899 at launch.
