Clevo Announces Laptop With GeForce GTX 480M

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 35 comments

This laptop is packing heat.

Earlier this week, Nvidia officially announced its Fermi part for notebooks – the GeForce GTX 480M. Today that mobile GPU is ready for order in Clevo's monster gaming laptop, the 17.1-inch DF900.

The GeForce GTX 480M GPU upgrade option costs $588 extra over the stock GTX 285M, and will set you back around $3,000 at the default configuration levels.

At the spec levels, it's definitely a desktop replacement and not something that's build for any sort of mobility – at least for not any length of time away from a power outlet.

Features:

  • 17" Wide Viewing Angles WUXGA Active Matrix Display with Super Clear Glossy surface
  • Intel® Core™i7 Extreme processors support
  • Intel® Xeon™ E5540, X5550, X5560, W5580 processors support 
  • NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 285M 1GB, GeForce® GTX 480M 2GB or Quadro® FX 3800M 1GB  graphics
  • up to 12GB 1333MHz DDR3 SDRAM Memory Supported
  • Support up to 3 Hard Disk Drives
  • Integrated Hardware SATA Raid 0,1, 5 Controller
  • S-Video out jack for TV output & HDTV output
  • 1 DVI Port, 1 VGA Port for external Monitors
  • 4 Built-in Speakers
  • 4 USB 2.0 Ports & 1 IEEE-1394 Ports
  • Built-in 7-in-1 Card Reader
  • Integrated 3MP Digital Video Camera
  • Full Sized Keyboard with Numeric Keypad
  • Intel High Definition Audio / 8 Channel external audio outputs supported

    Does power generator comes with it, or it is extra?

    calling it a "480"M is pure deception, since the performance will come nowhere near the 480 desktop version

    I assume we can expect it to bench at around half the speed of the equivalent desktop version? Infact, if I was to make a bet, I'd say they'd just rebaged some older gen model. they don't have a point to prove with tessellation on laptops as much, and the extra heat all of that adds just REALLY can't be afforded in a laptop.

    I do believe this is covered just about every single article that has to do with mobile GPUs.

    I can just imagine a laptop like this bringing back the power brick. Darn power adapter probably needed is just as heavy, if not larger than the laptop itself.
