HP today added four new business desktop and notebook PCs powered by the latest AMD processors to its industry-leading computing portfolio. AMD’s new A-series Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) deliver a significant leap in PC graphics performance, offer exceptional manageability and provide an affordable total cost of ownership.
“Our customers stress the importance of varied computing options that fit their diverse workforce needs—from choices in processors and graphics solutions to a wide selection of PC form factors,” said Dan Forlenza, vice president and general manager, Commercial Client Segment, HP. “Today’s introduction of HP PCs, the first to bring the latest AMD processors to the business computing market, continues our decade-long tradition of collaborating with AMD to deliver computing solutions that balance performance and value for maximum investment protection.”
The new desktop and notebook PCs equipped with AMD APUs are:
HP Compaq Pro 6305 Desktop PC, offering enterprise-grade security and manageability with affordable life cycle planning and a business-class warranty in either microtower or small-form-factor chassis options
HP ProBook 4445s, 4446s and 4545s Notebook PCs, ideal for small and medium businesses that need a sleek, yet durable, notebook with advanced multimedia support, easy-to-use security and 14- or 15.6-inch diagonal display sizes
The HP Compaq Pro 6305 Desktop PC provides outstanding performance and value to maximize productivity for businesses and governments of all sizes with long, predictable life cycles of up to 15 months. The improved x86 architecture enables speedy and efficient computing, such as smoother internet browsing and accelerated file conversion rates.
Powered by AMD’s latest APU A10, A8, A6 and A4 processors, the HP Compaq Pro 6305 delivers up to 21 percent better performance than previous generations, including significant graphics improvement for intensive business applications. AMD Turbo Core 3.0 technology automatically boosts system performance when running multiple applications, and the HP Compaq Pro 6305 offers an AMD Accelerated File Converter that enables more efficient web browsing for smooth webcast videos, trainings and videoconferencing.
The HP Compaq Pro 6305 desktop PC also helps keep businesses protected at every level with HP Client Security, including HP BIOS Protection with enhanced defense against virus attacks and other threats, and offers out-of-band manageability, embedded trusted platform module (TPM), HP ProtectTools, self-encrypting hard drives and more. A choice of HP Client Management solutions, including LANDesk Manageability, helps simplify system deployment and maintenance. For larger enterprises, available HP Custom Integration Services can prepare desktop PCs with an image and other configurations specific to a company to further ease the deployment process.
The HP ProBook 4445s, 4446s and 4545s Notebook PCs are equipped with all-new 2012 AMD A-Series accelerated processors and VISION Pro Technology to provide the right performance to tackle intensive work assignments. AMD Enduro Technology—formerly known as AMD Dynamic Switchable Graphics—uses discrete graphics to create brilliant visuals when plugged in and allows the PC to automatically switch to battery-saving mode by powering down the discrete GPU when unplugged, all while still delivering great performance on every day business applications. These HP ProBook s-series notebook PCs also provide the option of AMD Radeon Dual Graphics for high-end 3-D rendering processing performance.
