Earlier this day I reported about the brand new GeForce Go 7800 GTX and now Bit-Tech informs me they have taken a look at one of the first notebooks that takes advantage of the new 7800 Go mobile chip from Nvidia. They've tested a Pentium M based notebook with the mobile chip against a Pentium M based desktop system with a full 7800 GTX to see whether or not the mobile part really is as fast as the desktop. The results are surprising as the mobile G70 chip is only a little bit slower than the desktop version.
Frankly, we didn't believe NVIDIA when it told us that this mobile chip was going to be as fast as the desktop chip. However, leaving aside the fact that desktop enthusiast mainboards and chips are faster than laptops, the graphics chip itself appears to be almost exactly as fast as the 7800 GTX - that's an incredible feat. Read on over at Bit-Tech.
