NVIDIA is now showing off its new GeForce GTX 700M Notebook GPUs that are now beginning to appear in the latest gaming laptops. Designed to be faster, lighter and more powerful than their predecessors, the 700M series will allow for much sleeker and sturdier gaming notebooks like the above Razer Blade, which is thinner than a standing dime. The 700M series uses the Kepler architecture that has been found in the current GTX 600 and 700 series cards, and is optimized to extend battery life and performance.
You can find out more about the Razer Blade here, and more about the GTX 700M series after the jump.
Much like they did for the PS4, NVIDIA has announced they will be supporting the Xbox One with their PhysX and Apex SDKs.
