  • Clevo Montevina question

    I've been planning to purchase a Sager NP9262, but I'm now wondering if I should wait for a new model from Clevo that supports Montevina. Does anyone know if there is a replacement to the NP9262 / D901C in the works or when it will be released?

    Also, does anyone have any idea when Nvidia will release the 9xxx mobile series?

    I would like to know that also

      I am sorry we have not heard of any plans at this time for a replacement to the 9262 or 9 series GPU's. I would estimate toward the last quarter of the year we will have more info on the 9 series.

        I waited for a couple months for the 8800M GTX to be released, and in doing so avoided a mobo swap and learned that the 8800M GTX was as powerful as 2x 7950 GTX cards. I was glad I waited, but it all depends on how soon you need your laptop.

          For the NP92xx / D90x series aren't we looking for desktop CPU offerings?

          That means we should be looking for a Nehalem architecture CPU and a QuickPath Interconnect based motherboard for the NP92xx / D9xx series. Followed up by 32nm!!! Westmere architecture CPUs in or after 2009.

          I would be surprized if Montevina came to the NP9262 series rather than the NP5793 series.

          Here's the Intel 2008+ roadmap info I could find.

          Note - the Yorkfield line of desktop CPU's that ship with the NP9262 appear to be 45nm chips, check out the wikipedia articles for some details in this area.

          Also, keep an eye out for quad-cores becoming the standard offering... and then 6-8 cores being revealed (that may be a few years off).
