"The second incarnation of Alienware’s M17x is creating lots of excitement amongst mobile gaming enthusiasts, but does it really beat a field of premium models? We put it up against solutions from Eurocom and AVADirect to find out what CrossFire can do."
While the integrated graphics market is heating up with the upcoming release of Sandy Bridge, they do not hold a candle, or even a burnt out match against the giants that house not one, but two video cards. These babies are the peak of mobile gaming, able to run the most demanding of games with the highest settings. Coupled with a Core i7-920XM CPU, there is probably very little that the Alienware M17x cannot do. Of course, something this powerful comes at a very powerful price, and you probably will not see many of them around even at LAN parties. That is, if LAN parties still exist. I have not been to one myself for years. Anyone still hip on the local gaming scene, or has voice chat devastted the market?
