Dell has finally announced the launch of the XPS M1730, the gaming notebook that should replace the M1710.
As rumored, new XPS M1730 will feature the physics dedicated card from AGEIA. It is the AGEIA mobile PhysX chip, the same one we saw and wrote about during the Games Convention. According to AGEIA, this little piece of hardware will allow far more complex physics without the performance drop.
The new XPS is also the first notebook with NVIDIA's fastest SLI mobile solution. We are talking about two 512MB Geforce 8700M GT cards in SLI. The display of the M1730 can produce 1920x1200 resolution at stunning 7ms of refresh time.
Besides all the internal additions, Dell's new XPS will feature a small LCD made by Logitech, called Logitech GamePanel LCD. The LCD can show system status and it probably works good with FRAPS. Dell's LightFX system is also updated and it features lighting for the keyboard and the choice of 16 colors for ambient effects. It also features the 2MP CCD camera and dual digital array microphones.
The cheapest solution starts at $2,999 with Core 2 Duo T7700 at 2.4GHz, while the top model can be yours for a mere $4,486 with Core 2 Extreme X7900 at 2.8GHz.
