Earlier this week, NVIDIA rolled out its new GeForce GTX 800 GPU series, with chips based on the company’s power efficient Maxwell architecture but on Kepler and Fermi too.

Immediately after the announcement, mobile gaming solution providers have rushed to reveal the implementation of the new GPUs into their products.

We’ve been detailing some new models coming with support for the architecture, but now it’s time to provide you with a full list of the new gaming laptops that have been updated to the latest GPU standard, at this point.

Eurocom X3, X5 and X7 with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M

Eurocom has updated its high-performance gaming laptops with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M in single and SLI (dual), a GPU solution based on the high-end Kepler architecture.

In addition, the 880M will bring about several features including Battery Boost, GameStream, ShadowPlay, Optimus and PhysX, technologies capable of pushing the boundaries and providing the best balance between performance and power consumption.

Eurocom’s line of powerful gaming laptops supports full HD display (1920 x 1080) on screens ranging between 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch.

AVADirect Clevo Notebook Line-up with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 840M, 850M, 860M, 880M and 870M

On top of updating the Clevo family with the newest GPU standard, AVADirect has also rolled out the P37SM-A 17.3-inch notebook which bundles the NVIDIA GTX 860M GPU-based on Maxwell in SLI.

All technologies outlined above in the Eurocom section are also to be found in the AVADirect Clevo line-up, improving performance, battery life and maintaining an optimal balance.

Puget Systems Traverse V series laptops with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M and Traverse Pro M Series with either NIVIDA GTX 870M/880M

The Traverse V line-up is said to be excellent for general use, but it can also support gaming. When not under a lot of strain, the dedicated GPU is disabled via the NVIDIA Optimus technology, so Intel’s dedicated graphics can run the show.

The Traverse Pro M series is aimed for power users and allows a greater level of customization. Users can opt between the more powerful NVIDIA GTX 870M, GTX 880M or Quadro video card.

Origin PC EON Laptops with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 800M Series

Origin PC has announced the availability of the EON13-S, EON15-S, EON-17-S and EON-17-SLX bundling the newest GPU standard and customers have the option of choosing which specific graphic chip they want implemented in their laptop.

Anyway, those customizing an EON laptop with the new 800M series graphics will receive a free game copy of the highly anticipated PC titles: Titanfall or Daylight, plus up to $150 / €108 of in-game credit for Warface, Path of Exile and Heroes of Newerth.

Razer Blade Laptop with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 870M

The new Razer Blade takes advantage of the 870M graphics chips and hence can smoothly run 3D graphics. The 14-inch supports a massive resolution of 3200 x 1800 pixels with 262 pixels per inch and 250% higher contrast ration, compared to earlier models.

MSI GT Dominator with NVIDIA GeForce 870M/880M and GE Apache with NVIDIA GeForce 860M/850M

The difference between the MSI's Dominator and Apache is that the first one bundles graphic cards based on the older high-end Kepler architecture that has been overclocked, while the Apache has Maxwell-based GPU architecture living under the hood instead. Therefore, the Dominator will sell for a higher price tag, than the Apache.

ASUS ROG G750 Notebooks with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880 GPU

ASUS has updated its well-known ROG G750 line-up of notebooks to the latest graphics chips too. There are three models waiting to be grabbed by gamers, the G750JZ, G750JM and G750JS and all of them have support for 4K displays and as much as three external displays via HDMI 1.4 and DisplayPort 1.2 interfaces.

MAINGEAR Pulse 14 Laptops with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M

MAINGEAR offers three models running on Intel’s iCore architecture and a Maxwell-based NVIDIA GPU. MAINGEAR’s main focus seems to be keeping pricing specifications low, so you won’t see the higher-performance 870M/880M options being offered here.
