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 expecting 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, innovations 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.
Case in point: the Razer Blade notebook, which features the thinnest chassis ever seen in the gaming segment. Thinner than a standing dime, the Razer Blade is game-capable and comes loaded with a GeForce GTX 765M GPU.
The MSI Dragon Series of notebooks is also getting a lot of buzz at Computex. They have three new gaming notebooks, including the GT70, GT60 and GE40. All come with your choice of GeForce GTX 700m GPUs. Those of you looking for the best possible gaming experience will want your new MSI notebook to have the GeForce GTX 780M, the world’s fastest notebook GPU.
At the Asus booth, folks are test-driving the new G750 gaming notebook. The Asus G750 is available with your choice of three GeForce GTX 700M Series GPUs — the GeForce GTX 765M, GTX 770M and the GeForce GTX 780M.
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 an NVIDIA Kepler-based GeForce 700 Series GPU in your next notebook.
