Recently the leading company in visual computing technologies, NVIDIA, has presented what the company claims to be the world's most powerful notebook Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) called GeForce GTX 580M.
The GPU is a perfect option for true gamers as it is able to run advanced video games at 1080p in 3D.
GeForce GTX 580M will be available in Dell's Alienware gaming laptop M18x and the upcoming M17x.
It would be interesting to note that the GPU provides 384 CUDA cores with a CPU working at 1240MHz. In addition, the device will avail up to 2 gigabytes GDDR5 memory with a processor that works at 1500MHz.
Thus the new GPU card from NVIDIA will make gaming laptops more compatible for games that require DirectX 11, for example Call of Duty: Black Ops.
The most impressive features of the latest NVIDIA development include the ability of the GPU to support NVIDIA 3D Vision technology and 3DTV Play software. The former is used to turn 2D content into 3D and the latter is sued to connect 3D vision-based laptops to 3D TVs for a better gaming experience.
The NVIDIA Optimus is another interesting feature that makes the device less power-consuming. The feature will allow the much awaited Alienware M17x gaming notebook to have a 5-hour battery life.
