Alienware 8800M GTX Leak

Alienware has inadvertently confirmed the existence of NVIDIA's GeForce 8800M GTX graphics for high-end notebooks as well as a pair of systems of its own, according to a pair of leaks spotted on the PC builder's site. The 15.4-inch Area-51 m15x (link may be unavailable) and the 17-inch m17x will both have the option of a 512MB version of the 8800M GTX that should provide 3D performance approaching modern, mid-range desktop video cards while scaling back power enough to run in desktop replacement systems. For the m15x, this will be an optional upgrade from 8600M graphics; the larger system will have as many as two 8800M chipsets in SLI, the leak notes.

Details have also slipped regarding the configurations of each outside of the graphics. Built to double as a mainstream system, the m15x should start at $1,399 with a 1.8GHz Core 2 Duo, 1GB of memory, and a high-speed (7200RPM) 80GB hard disk. An m17x will start higher at $2,199 but should include faster processors up to the 2.8GHz mobile Core 2 Extreme. Blu-Ray optical storage is an option, as are the choice of up to a 200GB, 7200RPM rotating hard drive or a 64GB solid-state drive.

Neither has been announced or hinted at by either Alienware or NVIDIA, though the latter is hosting its GeForce LAN 4 gaming party this Friday and frequently introduces new products to coincide with these events. [via NotebookReview]
