Bow before the gaming Emperor

Eurocom has unveiled a 19in portable gaming dreamboat, which it claims is the world’s first notebook to harness the power of two NVIDIA graphics cards.

It’s a photo finish between the M590K Emperor and SavRow Axen X1 (story here) to see who crossed the NVIDIA SLI line first, but as they’re pretty much the same laptop we’ll call it a tie.

Besides, the tech’s much more interesting than debating who got the gold medal - both feature two NVIDIA GeForce Go7800GTX GPUs, which together push polygons at a brain-frying rate, promising ultra-realistic rendering and high-def quality visuals.

The rest of the specs are formidable too: a 19in, WSXGA (1680x1050 pixels) widescreen display will be the window to your virtual world, there’s a pacy 64-bit Mobile Turion64 processor, and storage is a standard 120GB. You can also tweak and re-configure your beast’s spec for extra cost.

It’s just the beginning for the super-charged gaming notebook. Evesham’s Quest A630 is another new member of the SLI family – it’s available now from £2200 – and systems from familiar faces like Alienware, Rock and Voodoo are expected soon.

The M590K Emperor will be available in mid-March for an as yet undecided price. Keep an eye on Eurocom’s site for details.
