We’ve managed to get a sneak peek of the Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD that’s one ultrabook of a kind. This 13-nch ultrabook features a full HD 1080p display and a discrete graphics (NVidia GT 620M).
The Zenbook Prime UX32VD had some slight redesign as it is a bit thicker than the usual 1st and 2nd-generation Zenbook. Asus tells me this is because of the addition of the discrete graphics.
Nevertheless, the difference isn’t that much but what’s inside this thin ultrabook could change your mind about getting one for portable gaming.
I am told that on top of the NVidia GT 620M, they’ve also replaced the storage to a hybrid 320GB HDD (with 24GB SSD for caching). Based on the Windows Experience Index of 7.5 for the HDD, that’s still pretty good.
And speaking of WEI, the Core i7 Ivy Bridge processor got a sub-score of 7.1 while the graphics got a sub-score of 6.2.
Asus will definitely release the Zenbook Prime UX32VD in the Philippines in the coming months. Estimated price is just Php5k shy of the Zenbook Prime UX31A so that’s about Php65,000.
