NVIDIA launches GeForce Go 6 Series for laptops

By Derek Sooman on January 6, 2005, 4:24 PM
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." - Rob Csongor, general manager, mobile GPUs for NVIDIA.

Well, I certainly would not knock it back if it was on my laptop! This isn't a kick-ass, powerhouse PC here. Its a notebook.Also, there have been many strides in reducing the amount of power used by the device, and not compromising on performance.I think you are being a little dismissive.

Understood P66, you make me reconsider my statment, but some people still play games on laptops (quite a few that i know as sad as it is believe me), but never the less, I would have stuff thought they could put a mainstream gpu in there, like a 6600..But only a low end gpu, it seems like it almost isnt worth the bother.:Edit:Rereading this over, I know this artical isnt saying the 6200 is the only gpu to come out for a laptop, but I bet they wont have any other GF gpu in the 6xxx range to come out.

There are already GF 6800 GO cards & Radeon 9700 on laptops. They're generally on "Desktop replacement" laptops. Those that are as heavy as the desk it's placed on.

I have no complaints about performance with Radeon 9600 in Half-Life 2 and Doom 3.

I thought you had a AIW-9800se ?

He might have that in another rig ;)But I just wish higher end gfx sets were avaliable in standard laptops at your call, not just the 4K 40lb 40in long laptops.
