Gigabyte CeBIT Notebooks

Gigabyte Technology revealed on Tuesday that it would announce several new notebooks in its W line for Germany's CeBIT expo based on Intel's upcoming Santa Rosa platform, which should speed up mobile Core 2 Duo systems with a faster 800MHz data path and other enhancements. Chief among the introductions will be a 17-inch desktop replacement. Though details will remain hidden until next week's event, the large notebook will represent the first "dual graphics card" system, according to Gigabyte; it's unclear, however, as to whether or not the claim actually refers to existing SLI-equipped dual chipset notebooks or hybrid Intel/NVIDIA graphics systems such as Sony's Vaio SZ.

Other additions will include 14- and 15.4-inch notebooks, a 6.5-inch UMPC handheld, and a Power Express battery pack that the Taiwanese firm promises will deliver eight hours of battery life to "any" notebook. Full details should be available when CeBIT begins on March 15th. [via Laptoping]
