    When we learned early details about the Qosmio X870 from Toshiba, we took it as a sufficiently impressive combination of "Ivy Bridge" and "GeForce Kepler", without a clue about which exact models they were. DonanimHaber went hands on with one of these beasts and discovered it instead packs top-rate versions of Ivy Bridge and GeForce Fermi...err, right.

    The X870 is driven by Core i7-3610QM. This chip is perhaps the most popular Core i7 mobile chip notebook designers will have access to, from the 3rd generation Core processor family. Armed with 4 cores, 8 threads (enabled with HTT), the i7-3610QM has a nominal clock speed of 2.30 GHz, with a Turbo Boost frequency as high as 3.30 GHz. Unlike higher Core i7 Extreme mobile models, its L3 cache is limited to 6 MB. Handling graphics, on the other hand, is the NVIDIA GeForce GT 670M. The GT 670 is based on 40 nm GF114 GPU, and packs 336 CUDA cores, and 2 GB of GDDR5 memory over a 256-bit wide memory interface. Other notable features of the Qosmio X870 include 16 GB of dual-channel DDR3 memory, a 17.3-inch display with 1920x1080 pixels resolution, an SSD holding the OS and programs, and a 2 TB HDD holding data.

    Why is GT670 GF114... an why not Kepler? All Kepler mobile GPUs have 384 shaders... they should be able to make a highend one too with two SMXs instead of one.

    Qosmios are usually 1-1.8k depending on specs. Very decent equipped models tend to be in the 12-1400 range. Maxed RAM, i7s, Bluray...higher end models don't add a ton on top of that.

    Yes please just what the doctor ordered, maybe need a bit more juice on the cpu side, at least 2.9ghz but a good start so far.

    I think my "dual cpu socket" girlfriends needs something a bit more beefier as a portable entertainment device.

    If only it were an acer or MSI, something respectable.

    Why isn't Toshiba respectable? I might have the wrong image of course, but most Toshibas I've seen are just ... working and chugging along without problems.
