Acer’s Aspire Timeline Ultra M3-581TG is more than just a mouthful: it’s an ultrabook, too. Oh, and it’s not just any ultrabook: it’s the first ultrathin, long-lasting laptop with dedicated GeForce graphics.
It features an Intel Sandy Bridge processor and discrete graphics from NVIDIA’s GeForce GT 640M. The GPU is based on NVIDIA’s upcoming Kepler architecture and is touted to be able to run Battlefield 3 on ultra settings at 1366 x 768 resolution.
The graphics processing unit (GPU) is based on the upcoming Kepler architecture that Nvidia plans to reveal in the near future. The chip has 384 processor cores running at 625 megahertz.
If powerful performance isn’t enough, the super thin ultrabook is said to pack a battery that provides about 8 hours of regular usage – and it has an optical drive for those of you who still rely on discs. It packs a 15.6″ display, up to 6GB of RAM and a choice between a 500GB hybrid hard disk drive or a 256GB SSD. It weighs less than five pounds, and we should see it on sale later this month for an unspecified number of dollars. We’ll bring you a full review later this week. The ultrabook was first shown off at CeBIT 2012, and was slated for a March release.
