NVIDIA has announced the NVIDIA® GeForceTM Go 6200
graphics processing unit (GPU) for mainstream notebook PCs
. The technology of NVIDIA® GeForceTM Go 6200 graphics supports PureVideoTM technology for home theater quality experience - all there on your notebook! Full support is also present for Microsoft© DirectX© 9.0 Shader Model 3.0 visual effects, just in case you want to fire up Half Life 2 whilst you are sitting on the bus. It is also claimed that the technology can help to save battery life, by reducing the number of discrete memory devices, which in turn reduces the amount of power used and the heat dissipated.
"Notebook PCs have become the hub for multimedia productivity and entertainment. Historically, the challenge has always been getting high performance multimedia GPUs into thin-and-light notebooks that are very lightweight, small and feasible for travel. The dramatic technology advances in the GeForce Go 6200 GPU with TurboCacheTM technology allows world class graphics and video performance to be delivered in thin-and-light notebooks... the notebook you want to take with you. The Sony notebooks announced today are outstanding examples of this concept brought to reality for consumers and are available now."
