L Computers Promises Dual-Chip Laptop Again[12/13/2006 06:54 AM]
L Computers International, a supplier of personal computers known for promising very advanced technologies, announced that its new limited edition Hollywood Pro X8 laptop will feature two quad-core central processing units (CPUs), thus providing users the power of eight processing engines.
The company said its new Hollywood Pro X8 laptop will feature two Intel Xeon 5300-series microprocessors with four processing cores and 8MB of level-two cache in total, up to 8GB of PC2-5300 (DDR2 667MHz) memory, up to 160GB hard disk drive, Nvidia Quadro FX 2500M 512MB graphics accelerator and a 17” liquid crystal display with 1920x1200 resolution. The company said the new notebooks will feature “a suite of available optical drives from high-speed multi-format/dual-layer DVD burner to future HD-DVD and Blu-Ray swappable devices”.
Currently there are very few reference designs for Intel Xeon 5100-series and 5300-series based server and workstation systems and it is unclear how the company plans to create a notebook with two of such chips. Besides, chipsets that support Intel Xeon quad-core microprocessors also support FB-DIMM memory only and there is no mention about FB-DIMM support in L's claims. Also, there are no HD DVD burners for laptops available today, even Toshiba, the main driving force behind the Blu-ray, is only expected to start sampling its SD-L902A this year, while mass production timeframes are unclear.
L Computers has not showcased photos or prototypes of the new Hollywood Pro X8 laptop, yet, it demonstrated some conceptual art, and also did not announce when it plans to ship the device and at what price points.
