Nvidia launches mobile GeForce 7950 GTX

World's fastest laptop GPU?

Reducing security risks from open source software

Nvidia has launched what it claims is the world's fastest notebook graphics chip. Yes, we're talking the mobile version of the GeForce 7950, appearing soon in a number of laptops as the GeForce Go 7950 GTX.

The chip maker didn't say much about what the new GPU can do beyond the part's support for DirectX 9 Shader Model 3.0, provision of Nvidia's PureVideo video rendering technology.

Nor did the company say when the part will actually ship - it simply said notebooks are "available for order" from a number of vendors, including Voodoo, Hypersonic, ProStar, ABS, Falcon Northwest, Chiligreen, Cybersystem, Evesham, Multirama, Rock and XS2.

Notebooks based on the 7950 GTX are expected to ship early next month. ®
