Samsung launches new portable and desktop computers
Samsung has announced that it has added some new computers to its ATIV lineup. The new machines include the ATIV Book 9 Plus, ATIV Book 9 Lite, and the ATIV One 5 Style. The 9 Plus is a premium PC with an aluminum unibody and a Windows 8 optimized touchscreen.
It features a 13.3-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 3200 x 1800 and a battery promising 12 hours of use per charge
. The machine promises to boot up from cold in less than 6 seconds and wake up from sleep mode in under 1 second.
The ATIV Book 9 Plus has processor options including an Intel Core i5 or i7 ULT. Graphics are handled by Intel HD Graphics 4400 and the machine can be fitted with a maximum of 8 GB of RAM. Storage is up to 256 GB via a SSD and it has an integrated 720p resolution web cam.
The ATIV Book 9 Lite is more of a mainstream computer that still features cutting-edge technology and a 10-point multi-touch screen. It has a 13.3-inch screen with a resolution of 1366 x 768. That screen supports touch input and the quad-core processor runs at up to 1.4 GHz. It can be fitted with 4 GB of RAM and up to 256 GB of storage. The battery promises 8.5 hours of use per charge.
The Samsung ATIV One 5 Style is a desktop all-in-one PC featuring the GALAXY design aesthetic. It features a 21.5-inch full HD resolution 1920 x 1080 touchscreen and is the first all-in-one launched since the ATIV brand expanded. The machine uses an AMD A6 quad-core processor paired with 4 GB of RAM. The machine has up to 1 TB of storage space and an integrated web cam.
Pricing and availability on all of the new ATIV computers is unknown at this time.

RE: Awesome resolution. Crappy video.

Maybe it's just that I don't pay attention to marketing. I always just look at design philosophy and operational measurements. I've never seen AMD make a misleading architecture diagram.
The true problem they've had is their engineering group has not been up to task or well-supported. Last year they finally started making hail-mary grabs at a direct solution, and it's probably going to pay off. AMD may not be a safe bet at the moment, but they're sure as hell an exciting investment risk.

"Maybe it's just that I don't pay attention to marketing. I always just look at design philosophy and operational measurements. I've never seen AMD make a misleading architecture diagram."
Its not really them being misleading, or AMD marketing overhyping things... It's more like get to the end with the final silicon and find out it wont clock as high as expected, or there is an unforeseen power draw issue, or bug like with the Phenom that caused them to implement a bios workaround that limited performance substantially as explained by Wiki below... I like AMD, and I hope they knock it out of the park, but like I said I wont believe it until its released and reviewed, not prepublished specs and not engineering samples. Actual retail units reviewed.
"Before Phenom's original release a flaw was discovered in the translation lookaside buffer (TLB) that could cause a system lock-up in rare circumstances; Phenom processors up to and including stepping "B2" and "BA" are affected by this bug. BIOS and software workarounds disable the TLB, and typically incur a performance penalty of at least 10%. This penalty was not accounted for in pre-release previews of Phenom, hence the performance of early Phenoms delivered to customers is expected to be less than the preview benchmarks"
