Clevo GF8800-Based Lpatop
Clevo has been demonstrating its next-generation gaming notebook at CeBIT. The 17-inch M570RU will become one of the company's fastest desktop replacement systems, using mobile Core 2 Duo processors (versus the desktop chips of the D900C) but will have its own edge in graphics. Representatives at the CeBIT expo have confirmed that the system will use NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce Go 8800, boosting 3D speed as well as support for newer DirectX 10 and OpenGL visuals. A built-in subwoofer and 802.11n wireless should cement its media center credentials.
A release date for the M570RU hasn't been provided, but is anticipated shortly after the NVIDIA graphics chip is officially announced. Clevo's system is likely to appear in the US rebadged by companies such as Alienware or Sager. [via NotebookReview]
