Gigabyte M1125 convertible incoming with Intel Core i-Series CPU

Posted May 30, 2010 in , , , ,

Gigabyte have spilled the beans on some of what we can expect to see.  Among the motherboards – catering both for Intel and AMD’s newest hexacore processors – there’s a new GV-R587SO-1GD graphics card based on ATI’s Radeon HD 5870 GPU.  However, we’re most interested in the Gigabyte M1125, spotted in a thumbnail on Gigabyte’s site and detailed over at SemiAccurate, an 11.6-inch convertible touchscreen notebook packing a processor from Intel’s Core i-Series.

The exact nature of that processor is unspecified, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see one of Intel’s newly-announced ULV Core i3 chips slotted inside.  Otherwise there’s USB 3.0 together with a proprietary docking station port for a dock that will apparently include an optical drive.

Finally there’s VGA, audio in/out and ethernet.  No word on what sort of touchscreen Gigabyte are using, but we’re guessing it might the sort of multitouch-capable resistive panel we’ve seen on recent Acer convertible tablets.
