Monday Nvidia was trumpeting its two newest mobile GPUs, the GeForce 8800M GTX and GeForce 8800M GTS, as a "gamer's wishes come true." The two graphics cards are now the company's highest-end options for mobile gaming, and Nvidia claims they are the world's fastest notebook GPUs.
Key features on the GeForce 8800M series include both DirectX 10 and DirectX 9 compatibility, so you can make the most of the newest games as well as your old favorites. The graphics processors also include the company's PureVideo HD engine for playback of high-definition video and PowerMizer technology, which the company claims balances battery life and performance.
Specifications for the GeForce 8800M GTX:
- Stream Processors: 96
- Core Clock (MHz): 500
- Shader Clock (MHz): 1250
- Memory Clock (MHz): 800
- Maximum Memory: 512MB
- Memory Interface: 256-bit
The GeForce 880M GTS includes nearly identical specs, but has only 64 stream processors.
So far the 8800M Series GPUs have shown up in the just-announced Alienware Area-51 m15x and Area-51 m17x, and Nvidia promises more systems to come soon from Eurocom, Gateway, and Sager.
