Just as soon as Intel announced its new Core 2 Duo chips, the notebook makers are readying themselves for getting the new models onto the shelves. First out of the blocks is Rock – they have announced plans for two new notebooks using Intel’s Core 2 Duo mobile processor, both built on existing designs, but with more power under the bonnet.
First up will be the Xtreme CTX Pro and Pegasus 665 notebooks. The Xtreme CTX Pro is billed as the ultimate mobile gaming notebook, featuring NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GTX graphics card and a 17-inch X-Glass screen. The Pegasus 665 is a more compact notebook, pitched at those who want to combine their gaming with more serious applications. It features a 15.4-inch screen and NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 graphics.
Further details including full specification, pricing and availability will be made available at the end of August. We’ll keep you posted.
