Toshiba Qosmio X305
Toshiba is preparing its own entry into the world of luxury gaming notebooks, a report claims. Specifications are said to have leaked for the Qosmio X305, which is alleged to be running a 3GHz Core 2 Duo, with support for still faster speeds through overclocking. Video is meanwhile said to be powered through a GTX-level Nvidia GeForce card, with an extremely high 1GB of onboard VRAM. This amount of memory is rare in desktop computers.
Complementing the processors are two 200GB, 7200rpm hard drives, and as much as 4GB of DDR3 RAM. Ports include HDMI and S/PDIF links, but the system should also have its own internal sound system, consisting of four Harmon Kardon speakers and a subwoofer unit. The only known drawback to the system is its 17-inch screen, which only supports resolutions up to 1680x1050. The X305 could launch as soon as July 14th.
