We've all known for quite some time that it was coming, but now it's official
We've brought you news over the past month of notebooks featuring NVIDIA GeForce Go 7800 GTX GPUs in an SLI configuration from
. NVIDIA has now officially announced what we have all known about for quite some time now.
"Desktop PCs featuring SLI technology still had the performance edge. They needed that edge because of the higher resolutions desktop monitors," said Jeff Fisher, senior vice president of the GPU business unit at NVIDIA. "Now gaming notebooks with extreme HD resolutions of up to 1920×1200 are here, requiring more processing power so gamers can still turn up their 3D quality settings. SLI technology delivers that power—creating high-performance notebooks for gamers on the go."
Partners geared up and ready to ship SLI laptops today include Sager, Alienware, Velocity Micro, and Voodoo as well as partners ABS, AJP, BioHazard, Cybersystem, Evesham, Gericom, Hypersonic, Multirama, Olidata, Plaisio, ProStar, rockdirect, Rombus, Savrow, Vicious PC, XS2, and Wortmann.
Speaking of VoodooPC, it has announced the ENVY u:909 which measures 17.5” x 12.5” x 1.75” and weighs in at a lap-crushing 16 pounds.
Loaded with a feature-set sure to have PC gaming enthusiasts foaming at the mouth, the Voodoo ENVY u:909 is also perfect for LAN Parties and mobile gamers alike. Featuring the biggest notebook display on the market today – a 19” high resolution mobile gaming display with a resolution of 1680x1050, the u:909 allows users to experience a sharp, vibrant display with plenty of workspace for any application. On the inside, the AMD Turion 64 processor allows users to increase overall performance dramatically without any additional heat load from the processor.

1680 * 1050 seems kind of low

I get 1680 * 1050 today on my 3 year old 15.4 inch x1000. I can't believe they are actually using the same resolution on a 19 in screen. I could have gotten wuxga 3 years ago too, (but the dpi would have been too much), and three years later they are putting wsxga on a 19 in laptop? doesn't make sense.
