GeForce Go 7950 GTX Video

NVIDIA is devoting its presence at DigitalLife to releasing a new video chipset aimed directly at desktop replacement laptops. The GeForce Go 7950 GTX is an enhancement of the 7900 that boosts the core clock speed from 500 to 575MHz and the memory from 600 to 700MHz. Features have remained the same, but the improved frequencies make it the fastest mobile video chipset anywhere, according to NVIDIA: pixel and vertex fill rates are about 15% higher compared to the earlier GeForce Go chip. Two 7950 chips can operate in SLI mode to improve performance even further compared to the 7900 (which also had an SLI option).

Dell shared the spotlight in the announcement as the first company to use the GeForce Go 7950 GTX in its laptops. The 17-inch XPS M1710 laptop now has the option of NVIDIA's latest hardware for an additional $499. Systems are also expected to be available from gaming-oriented laptop makers such as Falcon Northwest, Sager, and Voodoo PC.
