Real Ultrabooks Have GPUs

by Rene Haas

Acer and NVIDIA are redefining Ultrabooks.

When it comes to those lithely powerful Ultrabooks, you can’t be too thin, light or powerful. Acer is pushing the performance envelope on all three fronts with the Acer Timeline M3 Ultra – the world’s first Ultrabook to rock a dedicated GeForce GT640M.

Today’s Ultrabooks lack the graphics processing power to satisfy gamers and power users. The Timeline M3 Ultra breaks the mold by pairing the latest Intel Core processors with a discrete GPU based on the next-generation NVIDIA Kepler GPU architecture. The GeForce GT640M is based on the power efficient Kepler architecture in 28nm silicon and boasts Optimus technology to reduce power consumption where it’s most important – an Ultrabook.

Thanks to NVIDIA and Acer, you can have high-end graphics performance and the best battery life on the planet.

Expect to see more Ultrabooks featuring discrete GeForce graphics cards in the near future. Your next Ultrabook doesn’t have to compromise its multimedia chops – demand a thinner, lighter and more powerful machine like the Timeline M3 Ultra.

Clearly, the best Ultrabooks have NVIDIA GPUs.
