HP dv6z Quad Edition brings four-core AMD Llano

HP on Monday quietly posted some of the highest end of its new AMD Fusion-based Pavilion notebooks. The dv6z Quad Edition uses AMD's faster Llano-based chips and ranges from a 1.4GHz quad A6-3400M through to a 1.9GHz A8-3530MX, the two extremes of which can boost to 2.3GHz and 2.6GHz respectively. The Fusion technology gives them graphics capable of playing 1080p video smoothly, but they can be optioned up with an unspecific dedicated AMD Radeon chipset to handle more demanding games.

Other options can bring the dv6z up to a 1080p display (normally 1366x768), 16GB of RAM, a 1TB hard drive, or Blu-ray. Every version of the 15.6-inch notebook has Beats audio, 3D-capable HDMI 1.4 video out and two USB 3.0 ports along with an equal number of 2.0 connectors.

The Quad Edition is one of the cheapest to pack four cores in a notebook and starts off at $650. A system ordered as of Monday should ship July 15. [via Laptoping]
