SEOUL -- Using Intel's new chip, Samsung Electronics will release "Notebook 5" which is faster and more cost-effective than other laptops mounted with ordinary hard disk drives (HDDs). 

SSDs have become the favorite of tech-savvy computer users because they are faster than HDDs in processing speed. However, many cost-conscious users still prefer the old disk drives.

Samsung said in a statement on Tuesday that it has narrowed the processing speed gap between SSD and an HDD by using Intel's 16GB Optane chip which works as an HDD cache memory to double its processing speed and quintuple its booting speed.

The high-performance laptop computer features Intel's eighth-generation processor, a full high-definition display, Nvidia's new MX10 graphics chipset and an 8GB DDR4 RAM. Samsung did not disclose Notebook 5's price and release date.
