Graphics card maker Nvidia has revealed, via a corporate blog post, a new laptop GPU, called the GeForce GTX 480M. The company claims it will be the "world's fastest notebook GPU."

Using the same basic chip (GF100) and architecture ("Fermi") as its current desktop graphics cards, Nvidia calls the GTX 480M, "DirectX 11 done right for notebooks," and it will support standard Nvidia features such as PhysX and 3D Vision.

For right now, the only PC manufacturer initially confirmed to making GTX 480M systems is Clevo, but we expect other systems will be announced shortly.

According to Nvidia, laptops with the new GPU should be available starting in mid-June.
