ASUS G1Sn and GF 9500M GS

ASUS' booth at the Consumer Electronics Show has revealed first details of a new notebook graphics chipset that will launch soon, HotHardware says. Visting the PC maker's kiosk at the expo revealed the G1Sn, an unannounced variant on the company's well-known 15-inch gaming notebook; the system is not only based on Intel's 45nm Core 2 Duo but will also include a 512MB GeForce 9500M GT. The NVIDIA-made video chipset is not yet public but is believed to be a direct replacement for either the 8400M or 8600M lines and will likely add support for new pixel shader effects as well as boost performance over earlier models.

Without an official announcement or commentary by ASUS, a release date for the notebook is uncertain. NVIDIA is known to be planning a GeForce 9-series update for the desktop in February and may use the opportunity to announce a mobile chipset that will carry over to the G1Sn. ASUS is also releasing a 17-inch model with more familiar parts, the G2Sg, which also uses the 45nm Intel processors but will keep to a 512MB GeForce 8700M GT on launch but may receive a GeForce 9M chipset in the future.
