Clevo 901C Notebook
Clevo today revealed a notebook faster still than a model previewed just several weeks before. The D901C is officially only a slight variant on the 17-inch D900C shown in March, complete with the choice of desktop Core 2 processors and up to three hard drives. New, however, is the option of a new NVIDIA graphics chip, according to sources familiar with the design. To be released in three weeks, the 8700M GT will be faster still than the 8600M GT introduced last week and is said be clocked high enough to double the last-generation GeForce Go 7600 GT's benchmark performance. An even faster 8800M is also due later, say others.
While Clevo itself is primarily a generic system builder and rarely sells directly, the D901C should arrive in North America through Eurocom and other resellers, which will likely offer stock configurations as well as custom orders for faster processors as well as the supported TV tuner or 2-megapixel webcam. via Notebook Italia]
