Notebook gamers are going to get a kick in the pants this holiday season thanks to Nvidia. Notebook manufacturers will be shipping new models equipped with the just-released GeForce 8800M GPU.

Nvidia's GeForce 8800M line of GPUs includes the 8800M GTX and the 8800M GTS. Both GPUs use a new unified architecture that supports PureVideo HD, DirectX 10 and PowerMizer – a program that decides the balance between good and evil performance and battery life.

"I am absolutely amazed by the sheer performance of the new GeForce 8800M GTX-powered notebooks," said Mark Rein, vice president of Epic Games.

"These next-gen machines run Unreal Tournament 3 fantastically even at HD resolutions of 1920x1200. I'm ordering one!"

Expect to be able to pick up a new notebook that comes equipped with a GeForce 8800M in the very near future. Manufacturers that will be carrying the new GPU are: Alienware, Eurocom, Gateway, and Sager in North America; AIRIS, Chiligreen, Cizmo, Cybersystem, Ergo, Nexoc, Novatech, Plaisio, Rock, and XXODD in Europe; MouseComputer in Japan; and Pioneer Computers in Australia.
