Nvidia preps GeForce Go 7300

According to Asus...

Asus has pre-announced Nvidia's upcoming second mobile GeForce 7 series graphics chip, revealing the part's existence in its latest notebook launch.

The OEM's A6Vm laptop will sport the GeForce Go 7300 GPU, according to Asus' website. The graphics chip, as yet unannounced by Nvidia, incorporates TurboCache, allowing the 128MB of dedicated graphics memory to be beefed up with 128MB of system RAM.

According to Asus, the 7300 ensures the A6Vm's "3D performance is increased by 41 per cent [over] the previous graphic solutions".

The A6Vm itself is a Centrino-branded machine with a Pentium M 700 series CPU and 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi support. The notebook will be offered with up to 2GB of 533MHz DDR 2 SDRAM. It also sports a built-in 1.3 megapixel webcam and Bluetooth 2.0. Asus will offer a choice of either a 15in or 15.4in display. An AMD Turion 64-based alternative, the A6Km, is also in the pipeline.

Nvidia launched its first mobile GeForce 7 series GPU, the 7800GTX, late last month. ®
