HP slips notebooks with Intel Ivy Bridge, AMD Trinity

HP Pavilion dv4, dv6, dv7, g4 show future chips

HP has inadvertently confirmed plans from both AMD and Intel for future processors through a slew of notebook listings. The Pavilion dv4, dv6, and dv7 all have Intel's Ivy Bridge inside. The smaller two systems are using the quad 2.3GHz Core i7-3610M, while the dv7 has a similarly four-core 2.6GHz Core i7-3720QM.

All of them show HP improving the baseline of its own systems. The dv4 would have 4GB of RAM, but clocked at 1,600MHz, and would have both a 1TB hard drive and a GeForce GT 630M for video. Although the dv6 would take a slight step down to 750GB, the dv7 would have two 1TB drives linked together as well as 8GB of RAM and the as-yet unannounced GeForce GT 650M for graphics.

A fourth model, the entry-level Pavilion g4, would get a brand new AMD Trinity platform. Two models would ship with the dual-core 2.6GHz A6-4400M, which should have an improved Radeon HD 7520G for its integrated graphics. Either would carry a dedicated GeForce 7670M for when battery isn't a concern, and they too would have 1TB of disk space.

Orders for the lot would start on April 8. Rumors of Intel delaying the formal release to April 29 may have been proven true through the leak; HP is expecting the PCs to ship that same day. [via Laptop Reviews]
