Gigabyte announces the U2442DT gaming Ultrabook with Kepler graphics

The high-performance, thin and light laptop comes with a Core i7 chip, touchscreen display and up to 8GB of RAM

The Taiwan-based electronics outfit Gigabyte launched the powerful U2442V and U2442N Ultrabooks back in March of 2012 as part of the CeBIT show. Now, the manufacturer has reportedly introduced an upgraded version called U2442DT that offers a couple of new features.

To begin with, the new portable PC is based on a Windows 8 operating system and can be configured with a third generation (Ivy Bridge) Intel Core i5 or Core i7 central processing unit. Furthermore, Gigabyte’s latest Ultrabook is equipped with up to 8GB of internal RAM and a 14-inch touchscreen display that has a native resolution of 1600-by-900 (HD+) pixels.

Like its predecessor, the U2442DT sports a discrete graphics card. Apparently, the 1.6kg notebook will come with the new NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M GPU (28nm Kepler architecture) that can run most of the newest PC games, our benchmarks revealed.

Other specs presumably include two USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports, VGA output, an HDMI interface, an SD card reader slot, Wi-Fi and Ethernet LAN adapters. Unfortunately, there is still no word on pricing and availability.
