Has anyone heard any updated rumors as to when we may see updated Intel technology in a notebook workstation? I'm assuming it will be worth the wait...
Dell's i7 laptop is here:
Do a search in Google on 'mobile nehalem'. Should answer your questions.
When we will see the technology in a workstation class notebook after the mobile Nehalem's are released by Intel is hard to say. The laptop manufacturers stay pretty tight lipped about new product.
Thanks Anna, I've done that but I'm not finding any updated information. Most reports are sometime in Q3 of '09 but nothing specific. Just wondering if anyone has stumbled on any current news.
I'm getting real close to getting the green light to order a Dell 6400 but I won't be real happy if they add the new processors soon after. Ya it has to be a Dell...
I found the first review of mobile Core i7s just this morning.
HP just announced their Envy 15 laptop, based on the i7 chip:
The website is here:
The workstation version of this laptop should be a nice upgrade for Windows 7 and Solidworks 2010.
That's the news I was looking for. Looks like the next month may be interesting. Hopefully the workstation class units will follow shortly...
Unfortunately these are the enthusiast/gamer laptops. I think it might be a while before we see a Workstation Class laptop from the OEM's. Hopefully they surprise us and come out with CAD-centric laptops sooner then we think.
A step in the right direction. At least the chip is on the market. One can only hope that the OEM's race to be the first to move it into their workstation line.
I think as soon as the next generation mobile workstation cards are announced (FX580m, FX1800m, etc.), we should sell workstation level laptops from the OEM vendors. For now, the Dell M6400 Covet is prob. the fastest workstation laptop you can buy with the Quad-core extreme processor and the FX3700m or Firepro M7740 video cards:
Even Mark Biasotti has one:
And you know he's simply the rendering guru / Photoview expert. Well Rob Rodriguez might argue that...
