Engadget spotted Eurocom will start shipping 17" and 18.4" mobile workstations with the GeForce GTX 480M in June.
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. The MXM 3.0b interface provides a 256-bit linkup between the GPU and CPU, lending plenty of bandwidth, but it also demands plenty of PCB real estate.

Given that AMD has DX11 mobile chips in a lot of notebook designs right now, this leak is a good sign that Nvidia is willing to fight for their notebook chip market.
If Nvidia DOESN'T show up with mobile DX11 chips in June, they'll likely hand months of sales straight to AMD.
