NVIDIA rolls out 400m series gpu's for laptops

Very soon laptops will be available with up to 288 Fermi based CUDA cores and 1.5GB of video ram.  That's like having the performance of more than two quad core's in your laptop.  When you combine that with an available actual quad core and render in hybrid mode (GPU+CPU), it will be like having 12 cores (24 threads) of equivalent processing power all in a laptop.  The GPU revolution for rendering is only just beginning.
