Asus notebook includes new Nvidia GPU
A new Core 2 Duo-based notebook just introduced by Asus
is playing host to an equally new GeForce Go 7700 mobile graphics processor from Nvidia. According to Asus, the new A8Js notebook is the world's first to include the new GPU. Going by the sparse information
on Nvidia's site, the GeForce Go 7700 sits somewhere between the existing GeForce Go 7600 and 7600 GT in terms of specs. It has the same memory speed as the GeForce Go 7600, but pixel fill rate is fairly close to that of the GeForce Go 7600 GT. Asus also says the card packs 512MB of DDR2 memory.
As for the host notebook, the Asus A8Js looks like a fairly run-of-the-mill thin and light Core 2 Duo laptop. It has a 14" wide-screen display, an Intel 945PM chipset, 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0, support for up to 2GB of DDR2-667 RAM, and up to 120GB of storage. The machine weighs in at 5.27lbs, and Asus throws in an integrated 0.35 megapixel camera to complete the package.
