Is MXM available yet?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if the new Dell or Clevo PCI Express notebooks use NVIDIA's new MXM standard for upgradeable graphics or if they have continued to use proprietary formats? Thanks.

As far as i remember Ronin (private moderator at the NVIDIA forum) has mentioned "the advantage of MXM" (ironically meant in case he OCs tooo much and burns the GPU) for his new notebook. I forgot which one specifically he owns now, but there is a thread about that topic in this section of our forums

Thanks. I'm just surprised that it is not more highly advertised if they are indeed MXM modules.

I agree. I think that the next round of cards will be MXM if these aren't. Definitely by end of Summer we should see something.

I think Ronin has the Clevo. Based on ofelas's thread and links ( http://www.hothardware.com/viewarticle.cfm...leid=648&cid=10 ) there is no mention of MXM :) bummer.

Here's a new test at tomshardware with GF Go 6800 Ultra 256 in a DELL XPS Gen2 which beats all previously known Go GPUs and certain ATI and NV desktop GPU variants in benchmarks:

What a release. Hiopefully the shares will rise.

It's just unfortunate the the 9300 available here in the UK only seems to come with the 6800 and not the 6800 Ultra, even though the price is the same as the one in the US (after taking extra tax here into account). With performance as good as that of the 6800 Ultra, it almost doesn't matter if it is upgradeable or not - it will probably be time to upgrade most of the computer by the time that card needs replacing.

I will be buying a new laptop fairly soon, but I am not in that much of a rush and so I will probably wait until I can get one with a 64-bit CPU and a 6800 graphics card.
