HP Pro Santa Rosa Notebook

HP's Compaq pro notebooks for Intel's Santa Rosa architecture have been exposed and reveal several new graphics chips yet to be announced. All but one of line will have the same base 1.8GHz Core 2 Duo with an 800MHz bus, but will also have their choice of new AMD or NVIDIA video: the 15.4-inch HP Compaq nc8510p will have 256MB Mobility Radeon X2600 for faster general 3D, while its premium 8510w parallel will have the choice of either AMD's FireGL V5600 or NVIDIA's Quadro FX 570M with 256MB of memory for more advanced workstation editing. The 17-inch nc8710p/8710w will come with either the more basic 256MB Quadro NVS 320M or top-end 512MB Quadro FX 1600M.

All of these larger notebooks will reportedly have the choice of Blu-Ray for storage (bucking the company's past preference of HD DVD) with HDMI output; most can also pick from an EVDO or HSDPA modem for 3G wireless speeds beyond the range of Wi-Fi hotspots.

Two smaller notebooks, the 14-inch 6910p and 12-inch 2510p, are also set to arrive with the first equipping a 1.8GHz Core 2 Duo and Mobility Radeon X2300 graphics; the 2510p focuses on battery life with Intel X3100 video and ultra low-voltage 1.06GHz and higher Core 2 Duo chips.

Release dates and prices haven't followed the specifications leak, but virtually all are expected to ship at the same time as HP's consumer Santa Rosa models, which should be shortly after the Intel platform's debut in the coming days. [via Notebook Italia]
