Nvidia working on external notebook graphics

Written by Fuad Abazovic
nvidia

Eve of the new notebook gaming
We had a chance to talk to Nvidia’s General manger of Notebook group Mr Rene Haas and we heard that Nvidia wants to continue working on and improving notebook graphics. It looks like the future of Nvidia is raising the bar in just about any graphics segment.

Fusion and Intel's Sandy Bridge solution will put a lot of weight on Nvidia but Mr. Haas told Fudzilla that the company is working on its version of external graphics. He believes that AMD did a good job with Lasso, despite few flaws that kept it from being successful but it was a shot in the right direction.

Nvidia is working on its implementation of external graphics, as this is the way to get real gaming on notebooks. Since notebooks are slowly but surely taking over the desktop segment, this definitely sounds like a sound plan and a wise direction.

Let’s hope that AMD is working on some new Lasso, to keep the competition going.

Actually, AMD is working on SI, which will probably beat Nvidia's "lasso" attempt without the need for external graphics if nv continues to be pathetic and release another fermi-failure in a different wrapping.

"Nvidia is working on its implementation of external graphics, as this is the way to get real gaming on notebooks"

Yeah... not that nvidia hasn't any Fusion chip to compete and creating an external gpu for laptops to be bundled is a way to compete. Maybe the only way.

We haven't heard anything good from Nvidia after 460 GTX. Looks like this won't change pretty soon. My guess is that they will start talking about fermi 2 after ati 6xxx are released.

I just hope Nvidia uses the same interface as ATI otherwise both of them will remain useless.

I'm still looking for signs of AMD's XGP external notebook GPUs that were unveiled at CES 2010.

having said that, the french model only has a Mobility Radeon 4670, so im not sure whether the one shown with H.A.W.X running (ie the 5870)will come out. i personally hope it does, maybe a range of products, though we need more laptops to embrace the tech. Its proprietary tech., so AMD have it exclusively, though im not sure whether nvidia are able to replicate such a small port with the same data transfer capabilities.

They had exclusivity for a year or half a year back in 2008, now they need to pay a royalty for the interface, and so could nvidia. Bet they won't?
