Gateway launches AMD Phenom systems


One with Hybrid Blu-ray/HD DVD drive


Gateway has announced three new systems that will be packed with AMD's Phenom processors: the GM5664, GT5662 and GT5658E.

The GT5662 and GT5658E specs are the same, except for the additional 500GB hard drive, which gives the GT5658E 1TB of storage. Other specifications include an AMD Phenom 9500 working at 2.20GHz, 3GB of memory, ATI Radeon HD 2400XT with 256MB of memory and 18x SuperMulti drive with LabelFlash.

The more interesting GM5664 uses the faster AMD Phenom 9600 working at 2.30GHz and has the same 3GB of memory, 1TB of storage and the same ATI Radeon HD 2400XT card. The special thing about this one is the Hybrid Blu-ray/HD DVD player which will only work under Windows Vista.

These models are only sold at retail. The prices for these Gateway systems are US$750 and $850 for GT5662 and GT5658E, while the higher clocked Phenom and Hybrid drive will cost you US$1,150.
