More Dell XPS M1730 Info

Enhanced details of Dell's XPS M1730 have surfaced online, courtesy of leaks from a reportedly separate source. The gaming notebook is still slated to include a single graphics chip in default trim but is now set to include dual GeForce 8700M GT chipsets in SLI, making it one of the first notebooks to double-up on the advanced 3D hardware. The PC should also take advantage of its dual drive bays to offer solid-state hard drives (likely up to 64GB) alongside larger-capacity but slower rotating disks. In all cases, a small LCD ahead of the display should monitor system CPU/memory usage, and users can add a new Ageia PhysX mobile chipset to offload physics processing in supporting games.

No changes appear to have been made for the M1730's previously scheduled August 27th release date, which should see the system available worldwide with the choice of Core 2 Duo processors, graphics, storage, and other options varying by the region. Pricing is still secret but could equal or exceed the $2,398 of today's M1710. [via Engadget]
