[THG] ASUS Creates Upgradeable Graphics Cards - Page 3

post #21 of 26
Provided that someone will actually sell MXMs, this could go well.

Laptop makers do not want anyone to sell MXMs, because people would upgrade their laptops rather than buy entirely new laptops. If they can get over this barrier I think it has potential.

I think it is dumb to buy such a thing, after some time, architecture of the GPU changes, and then u are stuck with a expensive piece of rubbish

Thats a great concept. Should make further upgrading cheaper aswel after buying the initial unit of course.

The only thing that would make this outdated is if something replaces PCI-E. Given that graphics cards have yet to even utilize the bandwidth of PCI-E 2.0 I don't think that's too soon.
