Clevo has joined Alienware in announcing that its notebook solutions can now be configured to feature AMD's recently introduced Radeon HD 6990M, which is touted by the Sunnyvale-based company as being the fastest mobile graphics card in existence.
The new AMD solution will be available in the Clevo X7200, P170HM
, and P150HM gaming notebooks, the former also supporting dual-GPU CrossFireX configurations.
AMD's flagship graphics card for the mobile market is powered by the company's Barts GPU, which is also used in the Radeon HD 6800-series desktop solutions as well as for the previous Radeon HD 6970M.
This time, however, AMD decided to use the full implementation of Barts, also known as Barts XT, which includes 1120 stream processors, 56 texture units, 32 ROP units and a 256-bit wide memory bus.
In addition, the Sunnyvale-based company has also increased the clock speed of the GPU, from 680MHz to 715MHz, as well as the amount of video memory installed from 1GB to 2GB.
"We're excited by the new AMD Radeon HD 6990M GPU for enthusiast Clevo notebook users, specially implemented in our X7200/P170HM/P150HM gaming product lines," said Stephen Chien, sales and marketing vice president, Clevo
"With 2GB GDDR5 memory along with 1.6 teraFlops of raw compute power and 1120 stream processing units, those notebook users will reign supreme.
“The AMD Radeon HD 6990M
will help users achieve intense effects and blazing fast frame rates for outstanding performance," concluded the company's rep.
The Clevo X7200 is built around a motherboard that supports Intel LGA 1366 desktop processors and it can be configured to feature up to 12GB of system memory and three hard drives, while also offering a 17.3-inch display.
The other two Clevo notebooks, the P170HM and P150HM, are based on the current Intel Sandy Bridge processors, support up to 16GB of system memory, and measure 17.3-inch and 15.6-inch respectively.
Clevo hasn't revealed any information regarding the price of the AMD Radeon HD 6990 upgrade.
