Asus X77 gets Mobility HD 5730, Core i5 430M

17 inches of state of the art


While
looking for some holiday gifts we stumbled upon a new Asus notebook powered by a brand new Intel CPU and a fresh ATI GPU. Sadly, it won't be available in time for Christmas, but it is a sign of things to come, post CES.

The 17.3-inch Asus X77 has been around for a while, but a retailer recently listed a new SKU based on Intel's Core i5-430M, a 32nm Arrandale dual-core. In addition to the new processor, the revamped X77 will also feature an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730. We still don't have the exact specs for this particular GPU, but there is a good chance it will feature DDR3 memory, rather than DDR5 used on 5750 and 5770 cards.

The rest of the spec has been refreshed, too. With two 500GB hard drives, 4GB of memory, eSATA, HDMI and a 1600x900 LED screen and reasonably powerful graphics, it sounds like a pretty good desktop replacement.

No word on pricing or availability yet, but it should show up in mid January, at around €1000.
