ASUS Zenbook UX32VD, sports GeForce GT 620M, and 1080p IPS display

ASUS unveils new Ultrabook, the ASUS Zenbook UX32VD which sports a 1080p IPS display

ASUS have just taken the covers off of their latest Ultrabook, which sports a discrete graphics card. It's a 13.3-inch Ultrabook, dubbed Zenbook UX32VD, and sports an Ivy Bridge CPU, with one of three options: i3-3217U, i5-3317U or i7-3517U.

Graphics-wise, it comes with an NVIDIA GeForce GT 620M with 1GB of memory, and while it's not the biggest and baddest GPU on the market, it should handle most things at 720p, or games like Diablo III without a problem.

 

The strange thing here is that the Zenbook UX32VD sports an IPS display with a resolution of 1920x1080... but a GPU that wouldn't handle anywhere near that resolution in games. On the other hand, it would look great when doing everything but gaming. Filling out the Zenbook we find 500GB of mechanical storage, with a 24GB flash cache next to it, two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI out, and it should cost somewhere in between $800 and $1,100.

 

It definitely looks good, the IPS display is very nice, and the pricing seems perfect. Seems like a great Diablo III Ultrabook!
