NVIDIA SLI in a Laptop?

High performance PC maker WidowPC recently unveiled plans to release
its Sting 919 laptop featuring dual NVIDIA GeForce
Go 7800 GPUs based on nForce 4 SLI core logic. The system will likely come equipped with an AMD processor and feature a 19-inch widescreen display.

However, if you're looking for a highly portable gaming platform, this most likely won't fit the bill. To dissipate the heat generated by two high-end graphics processors in addition to other components would require quite an elaborate cooling system and decent sized enclosure. Naturally, such a large laptop would not be considered very portable, due to its weight and power requirements. It may, however, find its niche in the hearts of gamers who frequent LAN parties or lack desk space.

The price point for the WidowPC Sting 919 is not clear, but given the price points for current high end gaming laptops from companies like Dell, Alienware, and Sager, it won't come cheap. WidowPC was also forced to remove the announcement from its website, citing a "pending agreement with NVIDIA."

Look for more on the WidowPC Sting 919 as information becomes available.
