Hi guys,

I'm about to replace my ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4670 MXM Type A card in my laptop with an NVIDIA one. I was browsing eBay and found some possible candidates but there's something I'm not sure about:

Is MXM-B backward compatible with MXM-A?

According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mobile_PCI_Express_Module MXM-B cards are longer than MXM-A cards but let's assume I have enough place in my laptop. Then only pin and electrical compatibility matters. Can an MXM-B card gracefully degrade as an MXM-B card in this case?

Thanks,
Laci
