I have seen the m17x-R4 has received an option for a 2GB Radeon 7970M. This is good! However, i have noticed the m14x and the m18x do not have any Radeon GPU options whatsoever! The m18x with Crossfire Radeon 6990's was the de facto EPIC gaming laptop rig with a total of 2240 GPU cores! This has been sadly lost with the new releases, but it needs to come back please :PI am seriously considering the purchase of a larger size Alienware laptop, and i'd love to get a m18x or m17x, but unless the m18x receives Radeon GPU options i'm not gunna be too happy without any option.While i am a total believer in Nvidia cards on the PC, i do feel ATI have the laptop range better positioned price per grunt!Please Alienware considering my idea :)
http://www.notebookcheck.net/Review-Nvidia-Geforce-GTX-485M-graphics-card.43872.0.html I would really like to see Alienware offer the GTX 485M as an option alongside the Radeon 5870 Mobility in the m17x. The GTX 485M is far more power efficient than the GTX 480M was (by around 20%) and also has performance levels up to 60% faster than the currently in place 5870, plus almost double the performance of the also offered single GTX 295. This is a new GPU just released that would take the already extremely powerful m17x to a new dizzy height of performance level. Would also like to see the Radeon 6970 Mobility replace the currently used 5870 as it's far more powerful! Thank you Dell!! Status Update: See David V's comment. The GTX 580M has been implemented in the latest M17x and M18x. Thanks for your submission.
