Asus will soon update its popular Lamborghini VX7 gaming notebook to feature a more up-to-date configuration that will swap the previous Nvidia GeForce GTX 460M graphics card with a more modern GTX 560M discrete GPU.
The GTX 560M
is Nvidia's latest incarnation of the GF116 core and is powered by 192 unified shaders, that have a clock speed of 1550MHz (775MHz core), which are paired together with 1.5GB of GDDR5 memory working at 1250MHz.
Just like its predecessor, Asus' new laptop is built inside the same chassis inspired by the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 and packs a 15.6-inch display with a native Full HD resolution.
On the inside, the hardware used is also reminiscent of the VX7 as users are greeted by an Intel Core i7 2630QM processor, which is accompanied by a maximum of 16GB of RAM (8GB standard).
The Core i7-2630QM is one of the fastest mobile Intel Sandy Bridge CPUs available in Intel's range and packs four processing cores clocked at 2GHz (up to 2.9GHz in Turbo Mode) backed by Intel's Hyper-Threading technology and by 6MB of Level 3 cache memory.
Storage wise, the laptop can also be configured with a wide variety of HDD solutions that can provide up to 1.5TB of disk capacity thanks to the two 2.5-inch bays available that also support RAID 0/1 operation.
The rest of the Asus
Lamborghini VX7SX feature list includes a Blu-ray combo drive, a 2 MP webcam, an 8-in-1 card reader as well as a built-in Azalia compliant audio chip which is seconded by a pair of stereo speakers and a digital array microphone.
Connectivity wise, the gaming notebook
features 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, Gigabit Ethernet and Bluetooth 2.1 support and Asus has also added a USB 3.0 port as well as HDMI and VGA video outputs.
Including the 8-cell 5200mAh 75Whrs battery, the whole notebook weighs no less than 3.82kg.
Right now we don't know when the Asus Lamborghini VX7SX hits retail shelves, but its base price will be set at 1,995 Euros. (via Notebook Italia
