Last week at the Netbook Summit, NVIDIA GM Rene Haas said
that we'd be making a slew of NVIDIA Optimus announcements in June. The apex of these, are four big-name notebook manufacturers with new Optimus systems. We'll also have over 50 Optimus design wins by the end of summer.
Here at Computex, the Optimus train is chuggin' right along. New NVIDIA Optimus enabled notebooks debuted at the show from Lenovo, Gateway and Packard Bell -which are on display in our 3D Vision Experience Center
- among others. In total we're showing thirteen Optimus notebooks and netbooks -from nine different manufacturers, with even more in our partners' booths on the show floor.
Pics below show:
- Lenovo Y460: 14 inch model with a GeForce 330M GPU and 1MB for VRAM
- Packard Bell EasyNote TX86: 15.6 inch model with a GeForce 330M GPU and 1MB for VRAM.
- Gateway EC39C: 13.3 inch model with a GeForce 310M GPU 512MB of VRAM.

As David Ragones mentioned in his recent post, here
, we're also showing Optimus technology for netbooks, including two just-announced ASUS ION netbooks, the 12-inch EeePC 1215PN and the 10 inch EeePC 1015PN. We also have Acer's previously-announced 10 inch Aspire One 532G.
