AMD’s E series APU, the one that shares the CPU and an integrated graphics solution on the same silicon chip, has landed on a new manufacturer’s wares today. That new kid on the block is the 15.6-inch Gateway NV Series.
Two different Gateway notebooks will support the AMD platform. The Gateway NV51B05u will pair the E-350 with ATI Radeon HD 6310 discrete graphics for better casual game play and online video streaming, and will start at $499.99. The other option, the NV 51B02u, won’t include the ATI Radeon graphics, and starts at an even friendlier $399. Both systems pack the Gateway NV Series’ familiar LED-backlit pixel display with a 1366×768 pixel resolution, a 1.3-MP webcam, 3 USB ports, and HDMI.
