HP is one of the first PC markers to announce its first Intel Ivy Bridge-packed desktop computers, including all-in-ones and HP’s most powerful Pavilion tower to date.
Intel’s third generation Ivy Bridge processors use 22 nanometre architecture to reduce size and power consumption. For desktops, it means more than double the processing power of graphically intense data crunching – smoother gaming, video editing, and streaming at 1080p.
So far the non-touchscreen all-in-one Omni 220qd and Omni 27qd, plus touch-sensitive TouchSmart 520xt, have been announced as Ivy Bridge upgrades. The Pavilion HPE h8t and Pavilion HPE Phoenix towers will also get the Ivy Bridge treatment.
