The NVIDIA GeForce 280M GTX is the world’s fastest laptop GPU. One of the first systems on the market to feature the GeForce GTX 280M is the Alienware M17x. Using NVIDIA SLI technology, which enables close to double the graphics performance over a single GPU, two NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280M GPUs are paired to offer the fastest notebook graphics solution available today.
The reviewer’s guide for the Alienware M17x is now available on our ftp. To create the reviewer’s guide, we purchased the only notebook on the market that uses the Mobility Radeon 4870 Crossfire solution and benchmarked this notebook against the Alienware M17x. Please note that the ASUS W90 is only available in a one configuration and was benchmarked using the latest drivers from ASUS as ATI does not offer drivers directly from their website. In stark contrast, the Alienware M17x was tested using the latest drivers from NVIDIA.com.
As you can see in the benchmark results below, the dual GeForce GTX 280M GPUs in the Alienware M17x absolutely annihilates the ATI Crossfire configuration. No tricks, no overclocking, just the fastest notebook GPUs on the planet.
