Powered by the award-winning GeForce 9400M GPU, the Dell Studio 14z delivers excellent HD graphics at a great price.

SANTA CLARA, CA—MAY 28, 2009—Todays students and young professionals need a versatile notebook that can serve as their workhorse by day and entertainment center at night. The new Dell Studio 14z powered by the NVIDIA GeForce® 9400M® graphics processor provides a perfect blend of performance and portability with graphics support for gaming, HD video, and creative self-expression.

The GeForce 9400M in the Dell Studio 14z delivers up to five times faster graphics performance than Centrino 2 notebooks to accelerate image editing, video playback, and video conversion. With vReveal, the Studio 14z can fix grainy, shaky video twice as fast as comparable notebooks1, and then let you upload the video to YouTube in minutes.

The Studio 14z is also ideal for quickly converting video from desktop resolution to a personal media player. By running Badaboom Media Converter software on the GeForce 9400M, users can convert video up to 6 times faster than using a comparable notebook with standard integrated graphics.

Starting at only $649, the Studio 14z is the most affordable GeForce 9400M GPU-based notebook in North America. Yet it is powerful enough to deliver a superb high definition Blu-ray movie experience with an optional Blu-ray drive on the notebook’s screen, or onto a larger screen via HDMI.

“Our groundbreaking GeForce 9400M graphics processor gives the Dell Studio 14z superior performance at a solid value,” said Rene Haas, general manager for notebook GPUs at NVIDIA. “It delivers a great experience whether you’re working or playing, catching up with your friends on Facebook, enjoying high definition video, or playing games like World of WarCraft.”

This is the second Dell notebook to feature the GeForce 9400M graphics processor, following the January introduction of the Dell Studio XPS 13. The Dell Studio One 19 desktop PC also features GeForce 9400M.

The GeForce 9400M GPU boasts 16 CUDA parallel processing cores to deliver:

  • Superb playback of full-spec 1080p high definition video
  • Stunning HD video through an external monitor via HDMI
  • Acceleration for Adobe Photoshop CS4 for faster, easier photo editing
  • Accelerated video enhancement and transcoding using NVIDIA CUDA technology
  • DirectX 10 graphics
  • Support for popular PC games such as Call of Duty: World at War, The Sims™ 3, and World of WarCraft.
