Fujitsu Throws Down New Workstation Laptops

Fujitsu claim that only these notebooks offer comparable computing power to a desktop workstation. The notebooks are called the Celsius H910 and Celsius H710 notebooks.

The H910 claims 17.3 inches of screen real-estate and can be supplemented with either an Intel Core i5 or Core i7 processor. The H910 gives options for an Nvidia Quadro 4000M or 3000M graphics and offers up to 32GB of RAM.

Nvidia GTX 560 Hitting Stores Today

Nvidia is grinding gears, but in the best possible way, with continued use of its DirectX 11 GPU (graphics processing unit). The company is offering the perfect median between the current GeForce GTX 550 and the GTX 560 Ti. This time, without the Ti, the company is releasing the new GeForce GTX 560 and is touted to be a replacement for the current GTX 460 1GB.

The new GTX 560, released today, will have an identical number of CUDA cores, texture units, and ROPs, but will have an overclocked system, increasing performance. I am currently running an Nvidia GTX 470 in an Antec 1200 case.
