Dell’s world record in the “smallest gaming laptop” category – the 11-inch m11x has been given a performance boost thanks to a new option to configure it with one of the new low-voltage Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors instead of the former Core 2 Duo CULV CPU.
The graphics card is still the same however; an Nvidia GeForce GT 335M, so there won’t be an overly noticeable increase in gaming performance, but overall system performance should be much improved thanks to the new HyperThreaded CPUs with two physical and four virtual cores.
This should make this tiny gaming laptop more suitable for everyday tasks as opposed to just gaming and make it a killer ultraportable for all kinds of uses. Nvidia’s Optimus technology is also included to provide instant power savings or improved graphics performance respectively by seamsessly switching between the aforementioned dedicated GPU and some integrated, standard issue crap from Intel. Intel’s low-voltage Core i5 and Core i7 are also equipped with the Turbo Boost feature that overclocks the CPUs on demand. Update: Check out the latest M11x deal.
