Clevo Announces Laptop With GeForce GTX 480M

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.

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

    This laptop is packing heat.

    Doohoohoo, oh that slaps me on the knee.

    calling it a "480"M is pure deception, since the performance will come nowhere near the 480 desktop version
  • matt87_50
    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.
