Well, what do we have here? It looks as though a Chinese hardware OEM has jumped the gun by dishing out some specs on NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX Mobility lineup. The manufacturer in question is CJSCOPE, and the company has revealed specs for its HX-950 GX (15-inch) and HX-970 GX (17-inch) gaming notebooks. According to the company, there will be three Turing SKUs available (at least initially), represented by “Mobility” versions of the GeForce RTX 2060, GeForce RTX 2070 and GeForce RTX 2080. All of the GPUs use the Mobile PCI Express Module (MXM) interface and will be used in rather bulky machines using desktop-class Intel Core i9 processors (which means that... Read more...
Eurocom is adding the new MXM 3.0b NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M GPU to its line of available GPUs.   The GTX 560M card will be available in single and dual (SLI) configurations.  Thanks to the modular MXM graphics cards, users will be able to upgrade to newer video cards when they become available without having to buy a new system. MXM 3.0b technology also makes it possible for Eurocom to offer a number of video cards for each system. Three models from Eurocom—the Panther 3.0, Neptune, and Racer—will support the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M. Eurocom adds NVIDIA's MXM 3.0b GeForce GTX 560M to its line of Upgradeable Performance Notebooks Eurocom Corporation (www.eurocom.com),... Read more...
[H] has asked the question, "Two years ago, NVIDIA announced its MXM socketed initiative for the GPU mobile market. This new technology would allow for a modular GPU slot in all laptops, thus making servicing and upgrades much easier. Two years later, still nothing. Why?" "As lofty as the expectations of the MXM technology are, for the most part the hands of the integrators and the customers have first and foremost been tied by the ODMs who designed the cards, logic boards, and enclosures. In an effort to create more attractive, more innovative designs and system builds, they've taken the reigns away from NVIDIA. We found the contradicting statements between NVIDIA, who remains optimistic... Read more...
Tech Report has the scoop on MSI's demo of two MXM modules mounted on a discrete graphics card PCB which is essentially a single-board SLI configuration. With SLI making its way to notebooks sometime in the near future, this "proof of concept" is a lot closer to reality than we are being led to believe. Regardless, seeing two low-power mobile GPU's in removable sockets certainly gets one wishing for upgradable cores for discrete desktop graphics cards.CES - MSI is showing off a unique take on SLI that combines two MXM mobile graphics modules on a single PCI Express x16 card. It's just a prototype, but depending on interest, it could eventually make its way to market.... Read more...
Good morning HotHardware fans!  Just in case you missed it, we've just posted a short article outlining some of the features and benefits of NVIDIA's newly announced MXM, or Mobile PCI eXpress Module.  Click here, or check out the cool picture at the top of the page for details.  In other news...  NVIDIA and Ten Leading Notebook Manufacturers Launch Consistent Graphics Interface for PCI Express Notebooks: SANTA CLARA, CA—MAY 17, 2004—NVIDIA Corporation (Nasdaq: NVDA), the worldwide leader in visual processing solutions, along with the world's leading notebook ODMs, today announced a consistent graphics interface for PCI Express based notebook PCs. The Mobile PCI-Express... Read more...
  We recently had a chance to talk with representatives from NVIDIA regarding a new initiative they've spearheaded, with the goal of bringing a consistent graphics interface to PCI Express equipped notebooks.  Historically, the graphics processors used in laptops / notebooks have been impossible, or prohibitively expensive, to upgrade.  A few companies, like Alienware and Toshiba, have recently introduced upgradeable notebooks, but they each use different standards.  Alienware's parts can't be used in Toshiba's notebooks, and vice-versa.  The video cards used in desktop systems, however, can be easily upgraded because there is a consistent interface standard (i.e. AGP)...
