We’re fresh from Gigabyte’s notebook launch today, and it seems that the motherboard manufacturer wants to break into the local PC market bad. Spearheading their efforts is their P2542 gaming notebook. This 15.6-inch full HD notebook is equipped with hard hitting hardware that is obviously targeted at mobile gamers. We’re talking about a Intel Core i7-3610QM processor (up to 3.30GHz) paired with a total of 8GB of DDR3 memory.
The P2542G is also equipped with NVIDIA’s latest GeForce GTX 66oM discrete graphics (2GB of memory) and a Blu-ray ODD. Oddly enough, the P2542G is equipped with a 256GB SSD SATA III drive. The choice in storage is a bit of a headscratcher, as while the SSD drive gives gamers the performance they demand when it comes to storage access speeds, 256GB is not nearly enough space to store games in. In our opinion, a hybrid 64GB or 128GB setup paired with a 1TB of HDD space would have made more sense.
The P2542G will retail for Php 75,590.
