NVIDIA may be talking up its high-end graphics for cellphones these days, but that doesn't mean it's forgotten about those who prefer their portable gaming slightly less portable, recently firming up some details on its GeForce 8-series graphics hardware for laptops. The big news is that the company has confirmed that they plan to ship the new-and-improved hardware in time for the launch of Intel's upcoming Santa Rosa platform, otherwise known as Centrino Pro, which still seems to be on schedule for a Q2 launch. Assuming ATI doesn't have something up its sleeve, that would make the GeForce 8-series the first DirectX 10-compliant laptop graphics hardware, able to handle high-definition video as well as games. As you might have guessed, there's unfortunately no word yet on how much of a premium it'll add to sure-to-be-already-pricey laptops.
