Asus G71Gx

Asus has expanded its line of G-series gaming notebooks with the G71Gx. The device is based on Intel's Centrino 2 platform and features the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M GPU with 1GB of DDR3 VRAM, doubling the graphics memory of the previous G71. The company also integrated three SODIMM slots, allowing configurations with up to 12GB of RAM, while a 17-inch display offers a resolution of 1920 by 1200 pixels.

The GTX 260M offers up to 50 percent faster performance than the 9800M components, without consuming more energy. The GPU supports SLI for twin graphics hardware, along with Hybrid SLI that switches to integrated graphics for reduced battery consumption.

The G71Gx provides two hard drive bays for up to 1TB of storage. The device also supports Blu-ray and offers Altec Lansing speakers.

Pricing and availability have yet to be announced. [via Engadget]
