    NVIDIA and Alienware Showcase World's First SLI Notebook With Dual GeForce Go 7900 GPUs at E3

    , the worldwide leader in programmable graphics processor technologies, today announced it will demonstrate Alienware notebooks based on NVIDIA SLI technology -- the world's first available notebooks to feature dual GeForce Go 7900 series graphics processing units (GPUs), at E3 in Los Angeles. Delivering new levels of visual realism at extreme high-definition (XHD) resolutions of 1680x1050 and higher, NVIDIA SLI technology enables dual NVIDIA® GPUs to be used in notebooks based on the NVIDIA nForce®4 SLI core-logic solution.

    These new enthusiast notebooks, targeted at one of the fastest growing segments of the consumer notebook market, are among the fastest available dual GPU gaming notebooks in the world. The Alienware Aurora mALX notebook with a 19" display will be powered by two top-of-the-line NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GTX GPUs. The 17" Alienware Aurora(TM) m9700 will be powered by dual high-performance GeForce Go 7900 GS GPUs.

    "With NVIDIA GPUs and SLI technology, Alienware has closed the performance gap between mobile and desktop systems with the introduction of our latest mobile systems," said Mark Vena, Vice President of Marketing for Alienware. "The Aurora m9700 and Aurora mALX give customers two incredibly powerful and exciting new mobile options and these new systems underscore Alienware's ongoing commitment to uncompromised performance at home, the office or on the road."

    "By combining dual NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 Series GPUs with SLI technology, Alienware's new notebooks unleash a new level of graphics performance for mobile gamers," said Jeff Fisher, Senior Vice President of the GPU Business at NVIDIA. "Gamers on the go will be able to turn up their 3D quality settings at XHD resolutions for a greatly enhanced level of realism and immersion."
