Toshiba's First Gaming Notebook

PC Magazine has published some information regarding Toshiba's first entry into the gaming-specific notebook market. With Dell's XPS line and the recent acquisition of Alienware (one of the pioneers of gaming notebooks), it is hardly surprising to see other major notebook vendors taking notice and reacting. Armed with the unannounced GeForce Go 7900 GS, a 17" LCD, and a surprisingly light 7.2lb weight this notebook will certainly warrant the attention of LAN gamers and mobile gamers alike.

Toshiba is the first company to unveil nVidia's latest GeForce Go 7900 GS 3D graphics chip. This privilege used to be reserved solely for Dell, who, by the way, is also set to reveal an Nvidia-powered XPS notebook sometime in April. The 7900 GS is not as powerful as Nvidia's desktop GeForce 7900 GTX chipset, but if the current GeForce Go 7800 GTX graphics card is any indication, the 7900 GS should bring more horsepower plus some excitement to laptop gaming.
