AMD Radeon HD 7690M Powered HP Envy 17 Notebook Spotted in Europe

Soon after AMD made official the Radeon HD 7000M-series of mobile GPUs, an European retailer has added to its offer a new version of the HP Envy 17 notebook that includes one of the graphics chips announced today.

The chip in question is the Radeon HD 7690M, which is the most powerful GPU to be introduced by AMD in its “new” product family.

As we have reported in our previous article detailing AMD’s HD 7000M-series, the 7690M is actually a rebranded Turks core that includes 480 stream processors, 24 texture units and 8 ROP units as well as a 128-bit wide memory bus.

In HP’s creation this is linked to 1GB of GDDR5 memory, but unfortunately we don’t know the exact frequency that the GPU or the memory are setup to run at.

Outside of the AMD Radeon HD 7690M graphics card, HP’s notebook also sports an Intel Core i7-2670QM processor with four computing cores clocked at 2.2GHz which is paired together with 6GB of DDR3 memory.

The fast Intel CPU is also accompanied by a 1TB hard drive, a Blu-ray combo optical drive, and the now mandatory 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Gigabit Ethernet connectivity.

As far as the available ports and connectors are concerned, HP paid close attention to this department and added to its creation no less than three USB 3.0 ports as well as an HDMI output, a multi-format card reader and an USB 2.0 port.

The 17.3-inch panel used by HP in the Envy 17 has a native resolution of 1920x1080 pixels.

Pricing for the HP Envy 17-3030ew is set at €1198,41 (about 1,603 US). Sadly, the Polish retailer who has listed this notebook in its offer doesn’t have it in stock and also doesn’t seem to know when the first units will actually arrive.
