NVIDIA to announce two teased GPUs on Tuesday

Graphics card and GPU maker NVIDIA is indirectly teasing two new GPUs meant for the notebook gamers. An official press release is promised to come tomorrow, June 28. Two of these unannounced GPUs are said to be powering the computer, likely a notebook, while it's playing the new DirectX 11 version of the first-person shooter Crysis 2 in SLI (dual chipset) mode.

The game runs at 1080p resolution and tessellation is enabled, as is a high-resolution texture pack. The game runs very smoothly with all detail levels set to their maximum.

Some believe the unnamed GPU could be the GTX 580M, a successor to the GTX 460M from the company. If so, preliminary specs include 2GB of 256-bit GDDR5 RAM, an MXM 3.0 Type B card for notebooks, PhysX/CUDA general-purpose computing, and HDMI 1.4a output for 3D. [via Engadget]
