Fermi Coming to Notebooks

You might not be familiar with the name, but Eurocom is a company that specializes in upgradeable desktop replacement notebooks. And according to reports, the site recently listed a GeForce GTX 480M part, leading many to speculate that NVIDIA's Fermi would soon come to notebooks. Given the ultra high power requirements and operating temperatures of the desktop Fermi cards, it'll be intriguing to see how a notebook variant would perform.

Engadget - We had an inkling NVIDIA wouldn't keep the Fermi goodness just to the desktop and here's our first pseudo-official confirmation. Rushing in ahead of any announcements, Eurocom has started listing a GeForce GTX 480M part, replete with 2GB of GDDR5 memory and a $345 markup relative to ATI's Mobility Radeon HD 5870. It's not clear whether the 100W number refers to the TDP or power requirements of NVIDIA's new GPU, but it's safe to expect both to be pretty high.
