NVIDIA 8800M GTX Leak

NVIDIA is planning a new top-end graphics processor for notebooks that will outperform the GeForce 8700M GT just a few months after its release, claim visitors to the recent Computex expo in Taiwan. The upgrade would be known as the 8800M GTX and would effectively be a mobile-optimized version of the imminent GeForce 8800 GT for desktops. The architecture would be virtually the same save for a lower clock speed and switching on power saving measures that are unnecessary for the desktop card, according to the report.

The part would be intended primarily for desktop replacement notebooks such as the Clevo D900C and may also find its way into mainstream systems like the Dell XPS M1730; the chip would be available on a removable MXM card format with either 256MB or 512MB of memory for gaming notebooks that allow replacement video cards as an upgrade.

An official release date has not been announced, but the apparent leak would point to an NVIDIA launch of the 8800M GTX on November 19th, roughly three weeks after the introduction of the desktop hardware. Clock speeds and other details have not yet been leaked.

    AWESOME!

    This is *exactly* what I have been waiting for: a new XPS 1730 with 64GB SSD, 200GB 7299RPM, Blu-ray, and the much-anticipated 8800M GTX. It's going to be a beautiful thing :)
