updated 12:52 pm EDT, Mon June 4, 2012

NVIDIA's 28nm GeForce GTX 680M with 4GB of RAM comes to EON15-S, EON17-S

Origin PC on Monday announced it has added NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 680M GPUs to two of its two high-end gaming notebooks, the 15.6-inch EON15-S and 17.3-inch EON17-S laptops. The GPUs support NVIDIA's Optimus battery life tech and the PhysX physics engine. It has 4GB of dedicated memory and 1,344 CUDA cores for graphics and general processing.

The 28nm, Kepler-based graphics cards haven't yet been officially unveiled. They should bring better battery life and performance to the EON notebooks.

What the upgrade will cost isn't yet being revealed, but it's likely to be at least $200, as the previous GTX 675M upgrade cost about nearly that much. The EON15-S starts at $1,561, with the EON17-S starting from $1,592.
