  1. Without much fanfare, Nvidia today announced their first Fermi-based graphics chip intended for notebooks. Described as "DirectX 11 done right," Nvidia claims the new GeForce GTX 480M has a dedicated Tessellation engine that apparently can make this chip as much as five times faster than ATI's Mobility Radeon 5000 series in graphics duties and up to ten times faster encoding video when using technology like CUDA or OpenCL.

    "Man's balls fall off from Melting Laptop"

    "Nvidia to blame for rise in Testicular cancer cases"

    "Man sues Nvidia and HP for taking away his man hood"

    Given how lacklustre existing mobile versions of GTX range are in comparison to Desktop versions I hardly think this is anything to get too excited about. Advanced tessallation capability and DX11 on a cut down feeble mobile graphics card. Woohoo...!
