The powerful 17-inch desktop also sports the most powerful mobile NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX485M graphics with 2GB of GDDR5 memory delivering the ultimate performance and functionality by taking advantage of DirectX 11 and offers incredible framerates allowing pc gamers to access the highest resolutions possible, maximize in-game settings, and enable enhanced image quality features like anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering.
