    Edit: Sorry I meant to say POSSIBLE release ;)

    Link from Engadget

    So there you go, official specs. Mid June is pretty much E3, paving the path for Alienware to deck this in their machines.

    Thoughts?

    im not sure which way to go with these cards on one hand i think they will be not much in the difference but on the other their 2gig cards supposidly to it would run gta4 really good. as 4870s 5870s in cf only still utilies 1 cards memory which is only 1 gig and use both processors... i think,

    will be good to see
    will it be added to current model or whole new laptop do you think.

    Yes it is officially announce now!!

    05/25/2010: New GeForce GTX 480M: the World's Fastest Notebook GPU

    Today we introduced the new GeForce GTX 480M GPU for Notebooks and with it we're achieving some very impressive milestones. First, this is DirectX 11 done right for notebooks. Tessellation is the most important new feature for the DirectX 11 API, and the GeForce GTX 480M is a true tessellation monster for the notebook platform. It offers a dedicated Tessellation engine for up to 5x more performance than any other GPU.

    Second, with the power of the GeForce GTX 480M GPUs, notebook manufacturers can set new records for notebook performance. Put simply: If a notebook maker wants to build the fastest possible system on the planet, they will start with GeForce GTX 480M as its foundation.

    Third, we've now brought the vaunted Fermi architecture to notebooks. GeForce GTX 480M delivers nearly three times more NVIDIA CUDA cores over previous generation Notebook GPUs, which means users get unbelievably fast video transcoding, upscaling from standard definition to high definition and real-time movie clean-up with the click of a button.

    And finally, the GeForce GTX 480M not only delivers the world's best gaming frame rates, it also gives added features that no other GPU offers, including NVIDIA 3D Vision technology for an immersive gaming experience, NVIDIA PhysX technology that brings games to life with dynamic, interactive environments and NVIDIA Verde Notebook Drivers for the most up-to-date performance from your notebook.

    We're happy to partner with Clevo to introduce the first system based on GeForce GTX 480M. Stay tuned for more systems in the future.

    I'm guessing this is a likely candidate for the M17x?

    What about M15x? Do we know anything about the GTX 460m? lol

    Their press release also forgot to mention it can boil water and cook a steak up to a nice medium well.

    Its a monster card to be sure, but if the reported 100w requirements are still true at release thats just insane. Might be ok for a single card system with the fans and heat sinks of a dual card system, but for SLI thats a pretty insane thermal budget to make happen

    Maybe they can make some magic happen though. It would take a redesign of the M17x to make this card work. Even with our cooling system theres no way either of the single fans would be able to keep this monster from frying.

    Maybe a massive heat sink stretching across the computer with the GPU fans both cooling the single card would work (might actually stay really cool that way)

    I wouldn't say that 5870's run ice-cold, lol. But, my... 256-bit GDDR5 by itself is a kick...Hmm...

    For the record, with the 256 bit memory interface width and GDDR5 memory running at 1200 MHz, the memory bandwidth should be 153.6 GB/s and not the stated 76.8 GB/s. I bet there's either something wrong with the press or the memory is actually GDDR3 but not GDDR5.
