NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580M Review Featuring the Alienware M17x R3


A few weeks ago NVIDIA announced the GeForce GTX 580M, their new high end mobile GPU which was tagged "The world's fastest notebook GPU". At the same time that the GTX 580M was being announced a number of manufacturers were stating that they would include it in their current systems and as always Alienware were one of those.

The GTX 580M is available in Alienware's M18x and M17x systems with the M17x also offering the option of a 3D enabled display. We took a look at the M17x R3 back in February and today we revisit it, equipped this time with the GTX 580M to find out in a selection of real world gameplay just how fast NVIDIA's GPU is... can we finally game at 1920x1080 without compromise on a mobile system?

NOTE:
As the M17x R3 with GTX 580M is otherwise identical in specification to the original model the results from the original review have been included in this article. To skip to the GTX 580M performance section, beginning with 3DMark 11, click here.
