ASUS Press Release
[Singapore, 25 October 2010] Stylish and uniquely crafted to honor the Lamborghini tradition, the new ASUS-Lamborghini VX6 fields powerful NVIDIA® ION™ graphics and dual-core Intel® Atom™ D525 processing, audio by Bang & Olufsen, and the super-fast USB 3.0 standard.
The result of co-branding and cooperation between ASUS and supercar maker Automobili Lamborghini, the new VX6 offers a 12-inch portable PC that brings to the fore superb multimedia capabilities, with graphics driven by the new, second generation discrete NVIDIA® ION™ engine. It also uses NVIDIA® Optimus™ technology, which can switch in real time between integrated and discrete graphics modes to ensure optimized performance and a longer battery life.
The VX6 uses the dual core Intel® Atom™ D525 processor, ensuring unprecedented multimedia performance for a 12-inch notebook. It renders graphics in sharp, vivid 1366 x 768, and can connect to any large screen HDTV via HDMI to enable 1080p visuals.
Bang & Olufsen ICEpower technology produces deep and rich bass with an extended frequency response range for audio performance far ahead of that offered by other notebooks. The technology provides high definition surround audio, with crystal clear and powerful sound in music, movies and games.
The new VX6 takes its design cues from the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 roadster. True to its heritage, it embodies luxury and performance, with a premium design that stands out among other portable PCs. It offers advanced ergonomics, including an isolated, quiet-action keyboard and soft touch palm rests. Exterior panels use durable and stylish brushed metal.
Centered on Speed
The VX6 uses USB 3.0, which operates at up to ten times the speed of USB 2.0. The new standard’s accelerated data handling is perfect for high definition content and media libraries. The VX6 also features Bluetooth 3.0, the latest iteration of the wireless standard, which delivers a bigger bandwidth and up to eight times the overall performance of Bluetooth 2.1.
Coinciding with the launch of the VX6, ASUS are releasing the WX-LAMBORGHINI wireless mouse to complement the new notebook. This high fidelity device (sold separately) features an attractive design reflecting the style of both the VX6 and Lamborghini cars. It operates at up to 2500 dpi, making for highly precise mouse input. The included USB nano dongle extends the range of operation up to 10 meters, while providing complete plug and play on any PC.
Pricing and Availability
The VX6 has a recommended retail price (RRP) of $999 (in Singapore Dollars), and will be available from mid-November 2010, in time for SITEX 2010.
