Here's a look at NVIDIA's G70 roadmap for mobile computers:

Market Segment

H1 2005 H2 2005
High End GeForce Go 6800 / Ultra Series
NV41M  - 12 pipes
GeForce Go 7800?
G71M (PCI-E) - 16 pipes?
Mainstream GeForce Go 6600 Series
NV43M - 8 pipes
GeForce Go 7600?
G73M (PCI-E) - 12 pipes?
Value GeForce Go 6400/ 6200 Series
NV44M - 4 pipes
GeForce Go 7200?
G74M (PCI-E) - 8 pipes?

The good news is that notebook manufacturers are currently sampling G70 mobile GPUs. It is also reported that many of them are fond of NVIDIA's MXM, a technology to make mobile graphic cards more upgradeable. Besides NVIDIA's G7xM, ATI's upcoming mobile GPUs will also support MXM.

A smooth transition from current NV4xM cores will be possible for notebook manufacturers because the G7xM is pin to pin compatible. Turbo Cache will also be available for all models. SLI for notebooks might also become possible with two MXM-III type for high end and MXM-I or MXM-II type for mid-range notebooks.
