FUD Zilla talked with NVIDIA's General Manager of Notebook group Rene Haas and learned that the company has not written off external notebook graphics. NVIDIA is reportedly pursuing external laptop graphics as an answer to the rise of Intel's and AMD's processors with integrated graphics.
Fusion and Intel's Sandy Bridge solution will put a lot of weight on Nvidia but Mr. Hass 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.
