Asus X77 Laptop To Have Core i5, Mobility Radeon HD 5730
Fudzilla has discovered that the 17.3" gaming machine will soon be unveiled officially, bringing with it a Core i5-430M processor (32nm dual-core) along with a new ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730. That model number is a new one on us, but we're guessing that it will perform just under the existing 5750 card. One tidbit we do know: the GPU will likely rely on DDR3 memory and not GDDR5, presumably because this will be sort of a "bargain" gaming machine.
Other known specifications (rumored, at least) include two 500GB hard drives, an eSATA port, HDMI output, 4GB of RAM and a 17.3" panel with a 1600x900 resolution. We shouldn't have to wait too much longer to get the official word from Asus, with an estimated street date of January 2010 and a price of around 1000 Euros.
