We already knew Asus was working on new 11.6 and 13.3 inch ultrabooks with high resolution 1920 x 1080 pixel displays. Now it looks like the company may add a model with an NVIDIA graphics card to the mix.
Asus unveiled the Zenbook UX32VD ultrabook at an event in Taiwan, where the folks at Netbook News got to spend some time with it.
The thin and light notebook has a 1 GB NVIDIA GeForce GT620M graphics card alon gwith an Intel Ivy Bridge processor.
While Ivy Bridge chips have integrated graphics which are perfectly capable of handling 1080p HD video playback and some 3D gaming, the NVIDIA card should boost the video and graphics performance significantly.
Netbook News reports that the UX32 line of ultrabooks will come in several different flavors. Cheaper models will be available with a hard drive, 1366 x 768 pixel display and without the NVIDA graphics.
Prices could start as low as $800. But premium options include a 1080p IPS display, solid state disk, Intel WiDi (wireless display) technology and other options that could push the price to well over $1000.
