The world's first laptop with support for AGEIA PhysX

    Dell has finally officially unveiled its latest gaming laptop - the XPS M1730.

    Rumors about the release of this monster have been on the Web for a long time, but Dell itself bothered to talk about its brainchild only now, having reportedabout the release of a laptop in a corporate blog. The guys, judging by the post, are very proud of the device and talk about it in colors. The laptop really turned out to be chic, and the technical characteristics will make even the owners of expensive sophisticated desktops raise their eyebrows. So, the XPS M1730 is built on an Intel platform and is equipped with Core 2 Duo processors (in particular, the Core 2 Extreme X7900 peg, overclocked to 3.2 GHz), two gigabytes of RAM, two video cards NVIDIA GeForce Go 8700M GT (working SLI-mode, of course ), two hard drives with the possibility of combining them into RAID 0 and RAID 1, as well as a full-fledged keyboard with a digital block, backlight and a special Logitech GamePanel display (displays various in-game information: level of health, ammunition, etc.). But the most interesting is the support of the physical accelerator AGEIA PhysX 100M. It turns out that the Dell XPC M1730 is the world's first laptop with a discrete physical accelerator. All this abundance is covered by a lid with a 17-inch display (1920 x 1200 pixels, response time - 7 ms).

    By the way, if you believe the same post on, subsequent versions of this laptop will be equipped with even more powerful video subsystems as they become available.

    Now about the price. A laptop in the most modest configuration can be ordered on the Dell website, paying $ 3,000. A more powerful version will cost $ 3600. But for the most stuffed copy, the company asks for almost $ 4,500!
