Notebooks to offer GeForce 8800M GTX in SLI, NVIDIA Says

nvidiaNVIDIA helped step-up the gaming capacity of the mobile world this morning by announcing it has enabled the SLI configuration of two 8800M GTX GPUs in retail gaming notebooks. Previously, the best SLI configuration available for gaming notebooks was a pair of NVIDIA GeForce 8700M GTs which offered 32 stream processors each. The new discrete graphics solution offers 96 stream processors per GPU, but each offers the same 512MB of dedicated memory. The 8800M GTX was announced in November 2007, but until now has only been available as a solo option. In our past experience with Crysis and Gateway’s latest P-171XL FX gaming notebook which offered an 8800 M GTS, a slightly less powerful GPU than the GTX, we were left wanting more power and wishing it came with an SLI configuration option. Now it looks like our prayers have been answered. According to NVIDIA, the first notebook on the scene to offer this technology will likely be the Dell XPS M1730,  but the chip manufacturer expects vendors like Alienware, Sager, Eurocom, MALIBAL, Cybersystem, Multirama, Nexoc, and Rock to also release notebooks configured with GeForce 8800M GTX GPUs in SLI shortly.
