    MSI has quietly shown some 17 inch notebooks at CES which use the next generation portable graphics chips. The MSI ER710 MS-171B and GX710 use the new ATI X2600 portable GPU and a Turion X2 CPU. There was another one with the named GX700 MS-1719 with Nvidia NB8P graphics and Intel Crestline Chipset. No further details are available besides the models numbers. All of these are expected to be DirectX 10 capable, as ATI uses the X2K naming for the new line and NVIDIA uses the 8 from the G80.
