ASUS A8Jr brings ATI's Mobility Radeon X2300 to the forefront

ASUS today announced the latest addition to its popular A8J family: the A8Jr. The A8Jr takes advantage of Intel's latest Core 2 Duo processors and makes use of ATI's new Mobility Radeon X2300 GPU.

"There is an ever-increasing demand for higher graphic processing power and crisper graphics for entertainment and applications alike," said AMD's David Cummings. "Our answer to that demand is the X2300 GPU. This GPU utilizes patented technology to increase processing power and provide the user with smooth, realistic hi-resolution graphics."

The press release doesn't mention much about the Mobility Radeon X2300 GPU but it does note that it will feature ATI HyperMemory and will provide a superior "performance-per-watt" than competing solutions. The new GPU is also fully certified for use in Windows Vista.

When it comes to the A8Jr's other specs, it looks just like the rest of its brethren. The Intel 945PM Express chipset is used along with an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945AGP 802.11a/b/g adapter. A 14.1" WXGA+ (1440x900) display is included along with five USB 2.0 ports, an ExpressCard slot, VGA and DVI connectors and an optional Bluetooth 2.0+EDR.

The 5.27 pound notebook should be available for purchase within the next two weeks, but pricing is not yet available.
