Gateway unveils quad-core Intel and AMD multimedia PCs

Posted on Thursday, October 16 2008 @ 01:25:27 CEST by


Gateway LX6200
Gateway has introduced two new multimedia PCs, a $779.99 AMD quad-core system and a more powerful Intel based system with a MSRP of $1,199.99.

The Gateway LX6200 features a AMD Phenom X4 9500 2.2GHz processor, ATI Radeon HD 3200 integrated graphics, 8GB DDR2 memory, 750GB HDD, DVD burner, 15-in-1 memory card reader, analog/digital TV tuner, HDMI, six USB 2.0 ports, 7.1 HD audio, two FireWire ports and Windows Vista Premium SP1. This rig has a MSRP of $779.99.

The Gateway FX6710 is based on the Intel platform, it costs $1,199.99 but it a lot beefier. This system has a Intel Core 2 Q9400 2.66GHz processor, ATI Radeon HD 4850 graphics card, 6GB DDR2, 750GB HDD, DVD burner, 15-in-1 memory card reader, six USB 2.0 ports, eSATA, Windows Vista Premium SP1, two FireWire prots and 7.1 HD audio.
The Gateway® FX6710, the latest gaming titan in the FX Series, follows the footsteps of previous models, using Intel-fueled muscle to blow through processor intensive tasks and help gamers conquer their digital challenges with ease.

The Gateway® LX6200 desktop PC makes its debut as the first model in a new line of LX Series PCs designed for digitally creative consumers. With AMD quad-core performance, a whopping 8GB of RAM and blazingly fast graphics, it is ideal for designing web pages and blogs, creating digital photo albums, editing and uploading videos and producing personal music CDs.

"Consumers looking to maximize their budgets as the holiday season approaches will appreciate these affordable, powerful, no-compromise systems that get the job done without breaking the bank," said Glenn Jystad, Senior Manager, Desktop Products. "The FX6710 offers top-notch gaming performance at an incredible price, while our new LX6200 makes pursuing digital media hobbies a much more affordable and realistic proposition."

FX Series = Gaming Master
Widely recognized as one of the best values in gaming computers today, the Gateway FX Series PCs provide the perfect blend of performance, graphics and audio for those who want to experience their digital entertainment full throttle.

The copper color trimmed FX features a top-of-the-line Intel® Core(TM) 2 Q9400 Processor, Windows Vista® Premium 64-bit, 6GB memory, advanced ATI Radeon(TM) HD 4850 graphics and Creative's X-Fi gaming audio capabilities, allowing even the most advanced games to be played at high resolutions with life-like audio.

LX Series = Digital Powerhouse
The new Gateway LX line is a digital media powerhouse designed for enthusiasts focused on digital photography, video editing and music-based content creation.

Featuring bright blue accent trim, the LX6200 owes its lightning-quick system response to the supercharged quad core AMD Phenom(TM) X4 9500 processor coupled with Windows Vista® Premium 64-bit and 8MB of memory.

Topped off with ATI Radeon(TM) HD3200 graphics, Dolby Home Theater audio and a TV tuner, the LX Series brings movies, online video and games to life.

New Chassis Design Focuses on Ease of Use and Convenience
Sharing the same newly designed chassis, the FX and LX desktops include new user friendly features. Adding to the new sleek steam-lined look, Gateway has designed several "pop-up" and "pop-out" doors into the system which keep ports tucked away, out-of-view and free from dust and debris. Featured on the top of the chassis is a pop-up door which provides convenient access to media ports and the Smart Copy button, which simplifies the storing of digital photos.

Found on the lower front portion of the PC is a pop-out door which hides the i/o ports most often used for "temporary" items such as a microphone, headphone, 1394 and analog video capture cables. (The i/o ports for more permanent connections such as printers, scanners, etc. are located on the back of the system.)

Touch-sensitive media control buttons near the top of the system provide easy access for controlling DVDs, music play lists and TV functionality. Both the FX and LX models can include Blu-ray Disc(TM) optical drives.

In addition, LED indicators found along the front top offer real time status of wireless LAN and IR activity.

While all the FX and LX models come with two internal hard drives, customers can quickly and easily add a third and fourth hard drive by simply sliding out a tray located on the front lower section of the chassis. A completely tool-less process, users simply insert the hard drive into the tray and Vista will immediately recognize and configure it for use.

Recognizing the growing need for data protection, Gateway has added a backup button on the front of the system, which is tied to the backup feature found in Vista. Using this button, consumers can quickly and confidently copy their files to any storage location they choose.

The redesigned chassis provides a roomy interior, allowing enough space for users to add even the largest of video cards. A fan situated behind the card slots keeps cool air flowing while an open base allows for maximum venting, ensuring the system keeps cool even while engaged in warfare and mayhem. Gateway's cable management system has also been redesigned, allowing easy access to the motherboard and other internal components.
