Optimus Train Rolls Through Computex

Posted: 01 Jun 2010 12:38 AM PDT

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.

Notebooks on display include:

  • ASUS U33Jc (GeForce 310M, 1GB VRAM)
  • ASUS UL80jt (GeForce 310M, 1GB VRAM)
  • ASUS N53Jn (GeForce 335M, 1GB VRAM)
  • Clevo B5100 (GeForce 330M, 1GB VRAM)
  • MSI FX60 (GeForce 325M, 1GB VRAM).

Chinese manufacturer Haier, is also showing the 7G notebook featuring a GeForce 305M with Optimus and 512MB of VRAM, and Hasee, another Chinese manufacturer is showing the TW9A CT notebook with GeForce 335M and Optimus technology, and 1GB of VRAM in their booths.

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.

June is a huge month for NVIDIA Optimus announcements and Computex is just the start of things. More news to come!

Next-Generation ION Lands at Computex 2010

Here at the NVIDIA 3D Experience Center in downtown Taipei, Next-Generation ION GPUs are showing how powerful small can be.

First, we're showing two new ION netbooks from ASUS, both with Optimus Technology: The 12" 1215PN and the 10" 1015PN. With up to 10X the performance of a standard netbook, ION netbooks can easily stream HD video from YouTube and more, while still delivering great battery life.

Second, this wouldn't be the 3D Experience Center if we weren't showing great 3D content on NVIDIA GPUs. We've got a new Zotac ZBOX here featuring the Next-Generation ION GPU connected to a 55" Samsung 3DTV, playing Blu-Ray 3D Disney clips. For the first time, ION is going 3D!

And don't forget to check out the new pint-size ION nettops here - great in a living room, hooked up to a 1080p HD TV. We're demoing Lenovo IdeaCentre Q150, Asus EeeBox 1012P, Asus EeeBox 1501P and AsRock ION2-T. And, if you're looking for an all-in-one, the Compaq Presario CQ1 is also on display - we usually hear about folks using these as kitchen and bedroom PCs because of their small form factors.

Other partners showing off next-generation ION designs at Computex include Acer, Giada, J&W, Jetway, Shuttle and more. Be sure to come by the NVIDIA 3D Experience Center and check out what's next for NVIDIA ION.
