ASUS has announced the N81Vg notebook, featuring the new NVIDIA GeForce GT 120M GPU. The device offers a 14-inch LED-backlit display that supports 1080p video playback. Customers can choose from a variety of Intel Core 2 Duo processors, while available hard drive capacities range from 160GB to 500GB. Two DDR2 SO-DIMM slots allow RAM expansion up to 4GB. The DVD Super Multi drive can also be used to play Blu-ray discs.
The NVIDIA GT 120M features 32 cores and CUDA architecture, with 110 gigaflops of processing power and PureVideo HD that handles all of the video decoding process.

The 100M series is designed to replace most of the 9000M series of mobile GPUs, offering higher speeds while using the same optimizations as the desktop equivalents.
