This is it, HP’s First AMD “Trinity” Desktop System

HP has been a strong supporter of AMD during the last years.  Now, the company is among the first big OEM builders to launch “Trinity”-based desktop computer systems.

HP has chosen AMD GPUs as their main 3D processing solution in the company’s mobile systems for years now.  Even Nvidia was telling us at a Kepler presentation some months ago that they were very happy HP decided to finally use Nvidia GPUs again. They were proud to include HP on Nvidia’s design wins board, but the thing is that the first Ivy Bridge notebooks launched by HP were still using AMD GPUs. HP’s SleekBook is one of AMD’s best examples of how a “Trinty” UltraBook can be better than an Intel-based one. Of course, the UltraBook moniker is only reserved for Intel-based mobile systems, but we must accept that HP’s “SleekBook” brand is simply cooler. After all these pro-AMD moves, it is no wonder that HP is one of the first big computer builders to launch AMD “Trinity”-based desktop personal computer systems.

The system is called HP Pavilion P7-1269C and is already available for $820. That’s about €653 for the European buyers, and it’s just the starting price for a whole range of various configurations. There are many hardware combinations available, such as AMD APU-5800K A10, A10-5700, 5600K-A8, A8-5500, A6-A4-5300 and 5400K when the CPU is involved. The motherboard is an MSI MS-7778 (Jasmine) FM2 Socket micro-ATX based on AMD’s A75 chipset. It is actually manufactured by Pegatron for MSI, and it’s quite strange for HP to provide such detailed info on the insides of its new system. The system comes equipped with 8GB of DDR3-1600 RAM memory. Here are the complete system specifications on HP’s own official website.
