“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.
