InsideHW had a short interview with Mr. Pierre Brunswick, AMD's regional Sales Manager in CIS, Russia, Turkey and Eastern Europe.
InsideHW: One of things that attracted our attention during presentation of PUMA, was XGT or external graphics port. Can you tell us more about XGT, and particularly is necessary its presence in notebook so it can receive PUMA badge?
Mr. Pierre Brunswick: You are right, it is very exciting possibility. Idea is very simple: to produce port through which can external “box” (with one or more integrated graphics cards) use HyperTransport bus resulting in possibility of using full graphics power on notebook. XGT isn’t necessary a part of PUMA platform, more a feature, and implementation of XGT is left out for manufacturers to decide will they implement it or not. Fujitsu Siemens is our first partner that produced one such solution, but they are not exclusive, so in next weeks we can expect from rest of our partners to come out with their solutions.
