Perfect. One of the first (if not the first) AMD-base ultrathin is on the starting blocks, and it’s built inside the same casing as theUltrabook that is also getting the Ivy Bridge upgrade. This is the perfect opportunity to get side-by-side testing done. How does the NP530 perform against the $100 cheaper Samsung NP535? We can’t answer that question now but it won’t take long to get some figures an feedback.
AMD Quad-Core A6-4455M Accelerated Processor vs Intel Core i5-3317U Processor and apart from a basic, non-hybrid HDD, that’s about the only difference we can see from the Samsung sales page.
As far as we can tell, the AMD Trinity A6-4455M is actually a dual-core 17W TDP part. There may be a mistake here but we’ll check with Samsung.
We’ll keep an eye out for those reports and will be adding all the Trinity-based ultrathins to the DB as they appear.
