Toshiba pre-announces next-gen Nvidia mobile GPU

GeForce Go 7900 GS available now, apparently

Reducing security risks from open source software

Nvidia hasn't announced its GeForce Go 7900 GS mobile GPU yet, but Toshiba yesterday said it has begun shipping a gaming-oriented notebook which delivers "state-of-the-art graphics" thanks to the new chip, 256MB of graphics memory and a 17in TruBrite display.

The Centrino-branded Satellite P105-S921 is powered by a 1.83GHz Intel Core Duo T2400 backed up with 1GB of dual-channel DDR2 SDRAM. It's got a 160GB Serial ATA hard drive and a dual-layer DVD±R/RW optical drive. Toshiba has built in a pair of Harman Kardon stereo speakers and a "customisable dual-mode touch pad that can provide one-tap short cuts to launch e-mail, internet browser and other programs".

The unit has a five-in-one memory card reader, four USB 2.0 ports, a Firewire connector, 10/100Mbps Ethernet, 56Kbps modem, S-video TV output, a DVI-D port, and mic and headphone 3.5mm sockets - the latter doubles up as an S/PDIF digital optical port.

Toshiba's pre-announcement comes a week after Samsung inadvertently unveiled Intel's upcoming Core Duo T2700 processor - a CPU the chip giant has yet to announce in public.

The $2000 laptop measures 38.8 x 27 x 3.5cm and is available now in the US from "select resellers", Toshiba said. ®
