8700SLI notebook is available

17-inch screen, 3GHz CPU and Intel chipset


Ditech, a local computer store in Vienna, Austria has a notebook that comes with two 8700SLIs. This heavy 6.8KG machine with a 17-inch full HD 1920x1200 16:10 screen is one of the first 8700SLI machines that we’ve seen so far.

Each of these cards has 512MB memory and, according to Nvidia, this chip has 32 stream processors at 625MHz clock, 1250MHz Shader clock and 800MHz for 128 bit memory. This is basically a G84 chip just packed in a notebook, with PowerMizer saving marchitecture enabled.

One of the most interesting facts is that Ditech's Dimotion desktop replacement notebook actually uses an Intel P965 + ICH8-R chipset, and I guess that this means that SLI works on Intel's own chipset; you just need to buy the other chip from Nvidia.

The machine comes with three hard drives and can accommodate all Core 2 Duo and some Quads, including Q6600 and Q6700. The Core 2 Duo will work all the way to 3GHz with E6850 with FSB 1333, which is a rather rare for notebooks.  

You can configure and buy one here, and they start from €2999.
