Optimus

Hey everyone, I had reviewed the alienware laptop a few posts ago, here is the technology being utilized.

“With Nvidia’s Optimus technology, you get the best of both worlds, as general application and multimedia duties are handled by Intel’s HD graphics for improved battery life, and demanding applications like gaming and video transcoding can be handled by Nvidia’s GT2xxM and GT3xxM discrete graphics processors on the fly,” Asus spokesperson Gary Key told TechNewsWorld.

“This provides the user with a seamless experience that delivers the best graphics performance and energy conservation at the same time.”

So you get the best of both worlds, intense gaming graphics(for laptops) and a fluid 2-D experience with Intel HD graphics, capable of watching HD videos, without initializing Optimus. Check it out here at Nvidia.com
