Yesterday, we reported on rumors concerning mobile Ageia PhysX physics processors. Dell has now introduced a new high-end gaming notebook, and as rumored, the system features a built-in PhysX 100M PPU.
Dubbed the XPS M1730, Dell's newcomer has a lot to impress aside from PhysX, too. It features dual GeForce 8700M graphics cards running in SLI mode, one of Intel's new Core 2 Extreme X7900 mobile processors clocked at 2.8GHz, 2GB of dual-channel DDR2 memory, dual 250GB hard drives running in RAID 0, and a 17" wide-screen display with a resolution of 1920x1200. What's more, Dell says the system supports overclocking the X7900 processor to as much as 3.2GHz. There's also a GamePanel LCD from Logitech that shows game stats above the keyboard.
Of course, all that hardware comes at a price. The XPS M1730 is launching in three flavors that have price tags of $2,999, $3,599, and $4,506. You'll need to cough up well over five grand if you want all the options, too, like a Blu-ray burner and 4GB of RAM.
