Mesh first with DirectX 11 laptop

ATI-power Edge DX available now

Mesh Computers has launched what it claims is the world's first commercially available DirectX 11 (DX11) laptop.

Powered by an Intel Core i7 720QM processor, the Windows 7-based Mesh Edge DX laptop includes an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650 and 1GB of graphics memory. It comes complete with 4GB DDR3 memory and a 1080p 15.6in display.

Mesh is taking orders for the system now for £899.

First available on Windows 7 desktop PCs launched at the end of 2009, DX11 includes several improvements over previous versions of the graphics programming technology, including tessellation for displaying smoother curved surfaces, support for multi-core processors, and DirectCompute, which allows developers to harness the parallel processing power of graphics chips for other tasks, such as video editing.

AMD/ATI was the first to ship DirectX 11-equipped hardware. Nvidia has said it will support DirectX 11, and plans to release supporting hardware in Q1 2010.
