As detailed in a previously leaked Intel roadmap, the 1.6GHz quad-core chip will come with 6MB of cache, Hyper-threading support, and will scale up to 2.8GHz via Turbo Boost. Pricing for this system, dubbed Pavilion dv8, is listed at about 1,427 Euros (or the equivalent of $2,043).
Additionally HP will be launching two models using Intel's CULV processors, the 11.6-inch Pavilion dm1 and 13.3-inch dm3. Both will come with 1366 x 768 glossy displays, with the former boasting 2GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive for the equivalent of $690 in Europe, and the latter double the memory and a larger 500GB hard drive for about $970. The Pavilion dm3 will also offer a cheaper AMD Neo flavor.
Last but certainly not least, HP is supposedly readying an Ion-powered netbook to be known as the Mini 311. This model will sport an 11.6-inch display, non-DX10 Nvidia Ion LE graphics and 1.6GHz N270 Atom processor, 1GB of RAM, 160GB hard drive and a six cell battery.
