Alienware M18X R2 gets more graphics option

More leaks have surfacesd around the upcoming Alienware M18X R2 that have outlined its potential graphics power. The two higher-end graphics cores, the as-yet unannounced Radeon HD 7970M and GeForce GTX 675M, will both be available in twin-chip setups for very high-end systems if Dell-Lab's historically accurate tips are right. A GeForce GTX 660M would occupy the bottom and might be the only graphics without a dual-chip option in the 18-inch gaming notebook.

Just one extra detail emerging has the M18X R2, and a more modest M17X R4, having the option of Wireless HD to beam video to a TV or similar source.

No definite timeframe exists for when the new M18X, M17X, and previously rumored M14X would be ready, although they might be depending on Intel's Ivy Bridge chip refresh in the spring.
