Shortly after the launch of the new Carrizo and Godavari APUs from AMD, HP was fast enough to chip in on those nifty little chips that offer cool business-oriented features that you won’t find in Intel’s latest CPU. However, this article isn’t about comparing the two CPU tech giants, but to introduce the new HP lineup.

First of all, it’s important to mention that besides the HEVC support for Ultra HD video streaming and HSA 1.0, the new chips inside some of the EliteBooks feature 4G LTE support thanks to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X5 LTE Advanced technology.
