updated 10:35 pm EST, Mon March 5, 2012

Ultrabook available with standard or ULV chipsets

Gigabyte has introduced several new notebooks, including two 14-inch ultrabooks and a 15.6-inch gaming notebook. The ultrabooks include two variants, the U2442N with standard-voltage Core i5 or i7 processors, and the U2442V with ultra-low voltage Core i5 and i7 chips for improved battery life.

Both ultrabooks feature discrete GeForce graphics with 2GB of memory, 1600x900 displays with LED backlighting, and a choice between SSD or HDD storage. The internals fit into housings that measure 18.5mm-20.5mm thick, with backlit keyboards, USB 3.0 ports and optional Thunderbolt connections.

The P2542G gaming notebook offers a larger 1920x1080 display paired with a quad-core i7 processor and a GeForce 660M GPU with 2GB of memory. Other hardware features include a Blu-ray drive, USB 3.0 ports, HDMI output, and a choice between SSD and HDD storage.

Gigabyte has yet to announce pricing details or specific launch dates for the U2442 or P2542 notebooks. [via Engadget]
