|Rock goes for broke with its SLI-equipped Xtreme SL Pro laptop Posted Nov 18th 2006 3:04PM by Darren Murph Filed under: Laptops If you're the kind of person who likes their gizmos to the Xtreme, then you're sure to love Rock's new Xtreme SL Pro. Following in the same 20-inch vein as Acer's Aspire 9800 and Dell's XPS M2010, this gargantuan machine packs specs most commonly found in a full-fledged desktop. Powered by a 2.0GHz AMD Turion X2 TL-60 processor, the SL Pro also packs twin NVIDIA GeForce Go 7950 GTX 512MB graphics cards, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, a pair of 100GB 7200RPM SATA drives, dual-layer DVD burner, WSXGA+ display, 5.1 surround sound output, 1.3-megapixel webcam, and a 4-in-1 flash card reader. Additionally, you'll find built-in WiFi / Bluetooth connectivity, a DVI output, FireWire, and five USB 2.0 ports. Aside from weighing 15.2 pounds, having a presumed 28.4 (at best) minutes of battery life, and being nearly two inches thick, this prodigious laptop will set you back at least £2,499 ($4,720) depending on options -- but hey, it'll sure be easier to snag than that other crimson-clad eXtreme toy this holiday season.|

|However, it may explain the latest claim. Today's rumour suggests SLI will only work with mobile Core 2 Duo-based systems. The implication is that that's the current 945G chipset series, the core logic launched with last January's 'Napa' Centrino refresh. However, it's known that 'Santa Rosa', the next generation of Centrino is due Q2 2007, and it may be that product's chipset, codenamed 'Crestline', that Nvidia is targeting.|
