Nick Boardman, CEO rock, remarked “Gamers have been crying out for this long awaited addition to rock’s notebook line-up for almost 6 months”. NVIDIA’s mobile 8 series graphics was first debuted by rock in May this year. He continued “Once again, NVIDIA haven’t let us down, the sheer performance of the GeForce 8800M GTX is truly amazing and harnessing the power of DirectX 10 takes rock to the next level”.

“For gamers who demand mobility as well as the ultimate in graphics power, the GeForce 8800M GTX is a dream”, says Serge Palaric, Director Notebook Business at NVIDIA. “Mobile gaming no longer means compromising – now gamers can enjoy the best performance in the latest DirectX 10 titles on their notebook PC.
