Let's go ahead and address the green elephant in the room wearing an Nvidia toga. The Quadro 5010M mobile graphics solution carries a hefty price tag, and in return offers a hefty feature-set for those more concerned with AutoCAD and 3ds Max than they are with Crysis and Mass Effect 3. It's Nvidia's flagship mobile GPU with 384 CUDA cores and 4GB of GDDR5 memory, and AVADirect's now offering it as a GPU option with its Cleveo X7200 notebook.
"We recently added the new Nvidia Quadro 5010 mobile graphics card as an option in our Clevo X7200 Configurator. This is extremely exciting for us, considering the amount of performance gained from desktop components utilized in the mobile platform," AVADirect said in a statement. "Not only does the Quadro 5010M provide professional grade performance, but also consumes less power, supports Optimus, and uses a 256-bit interface. This is a big deal, considering mobile graphics cards have not been able to provide equal results to desktop graphics cards for quite some time. We are drawing closer to the day and age where mobile platforms and desktops will no longer be separated by performance. We are ecstatic to see what the Quadro 5010M will do for the future of mobile workstations, and look forward to the future."
So that's the Quadro 5010M. Dropping it into a Clevo X7200 as configured by default will add $2,109 to the price tag, and if you really want to spend like a balla, you can configure the X7200 with up to a Core i7 990 Extreme processor, 12GB of DDR3 memory, multiple HDDs or SSDs in a RAID 0/1/5 configuration, Blu-ray burner, and a bunch of add-ons.
