View Full Version : Where did all the laptops with nVidia cards go?
10 October 2004, 03:06 AM
I've been laptop shopping for quite some time. And most of the offerings from highly recommended vendors are offering mostly ATi cards. So where did all the laptops that offer nVidia cards go? Are Dell and Toshiba the only ones left offering nVidia cards?
I was really hoping that Sager, Hypersonic-pc, or even Boxxtech would offer the nVidia cards for those of us who are still wary of ATi for 3D. What's up? :shrug:
Thanks in advance,

Alienware is still offering the nVidia cards and I think you can get the Quadro cards in the other laptops you mentioned.

It seems as if alienware's mj-12 is the only notebook I could find that pairs the Hyperthreading pentium 4s with the Nvidia Quadro go. Dell's M60 pairs the quadro with the pentium M, which makes it more mobile, but less powerfull. You can wait a month or more for the Sager PCI-E notebook to come out which will have nvidias. The best thing about PCI-E is that the graphics card will be upgradeable.
let me know what anything else you find because I'm in the same boat.

Nvidia hasnt been concentrating on the laptop market for a while. Thus, ATI took advantage of the low competition in the market..

i ordered a inspiron with gforce fx 5200. you can upgrade that card to 5600 but you have to buy it seperately. In any case since you are a td , the one dell offers is more than enough.
also dell has online coupon thing going on right now. i bought my inspiron with %40 off!

What's up? :shrug:Well, if you can wait another month or two, the new Nvidia mobile chips should start appearing in a few notebooks. It's rumored to be a 256MB, 8-pipeline card based on the 6800 core. So far, Clevo resellers like Sager are the only ones who have hinted at the new card's impending release, but hopefully some other big manufacturers will announce new models with the card when Nvidia makes the official announcement (in early November?).
