80% Review HP Pavilion dv6-6008eg Notebook | Notebookcheck
Not for Sale? Currently, no shop in Germany is selling the new HP Pavilion dv6 in our test configuration, although both its price and hardware seem very interesting. The HD 6770M graphic chip of the notebook promises gaming power. In addition, the quad-core CPU and 8 GB RAM should deliver great performance. Still, is it worth the wait?

Comment

AMD Radeon HD 6770M:

Fastest card of the 6600M/6700M series with GDDR5 memory, UVD3 and Eyefinity+ support. Is the immediate successor to the HD 5770 with more cores and higher clock rates

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
