Computex is a spectacle of a tradeshow, and as such it means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. But if you're like some of us, Computex means one thing: here come all the new notebooks.
That's because more often than not, Intel coordinates the embargo lifting for their new generation of processors with the first day of the show. This year, that new processor is code named Haswell, and that means tons of new notebooks with GeForce 700 Series notebook GPUs and Intel Haswell processors.
Indeed, we have stated that we have a virtual sweep of the new gaming class notebooks and are excepting about 99% of the market share in this segment, a feat we are very proud of.
We're excited about Haswell, because it looks to be a strong advancement in CPUs and will lead to new, innovate things in notebooks. Like GeForce 700M Series notebook GPUs, Haswell processors are more power efficient. And the power efficiency of these new processors is leading to new notebooks that are 40% thinner and 40% lighter than last year's models.
The Razer Blade has the thinnest chassis ever seen in the gaming segment.
Case in point, the Razor Blade
notebook, which features the thinnest chassis ever seen in the gaming segment. Thinner than a standing dime, the Razor Blade is game-capable with loaded with a GeForce GTX 765M GPU
The GT70 is just one of a series of new notebooks for gamers from MSI.
The MSI Dragon Series of notebooks is also getting a lot of buzz at Computex. They have three new gaming notebooks, including the GT70
. All come with your choice of GeForce GTX 700m GPUs
. But the hardest-core gamers will want their new MSI notebook to have the GeForce GTX 780M
, the world's fastest notebook GPU.
The ASUS comes with a choice of three NVIDIA GPUs.
Acer is also now offering a gaming-class GeForce GTX in their notebooks for the first time in recent memory. The Acer Aspire V3 is packing the GeForce GTX 760M GPU
, and looks to make a lot of noise for its performance, design and impressive price/performance ratio.
These next generation notebooks all come with NVIDIA technologies that automatically maximize consumer's notebook performance and experience such as NVIDIA Optimus
, GeForce Experience
, and the new GPU Boost 2.0. Look for a NVIDIA Kepler-based GeForce 700 Series of GPUs in your next notebook.
