Our Closing Thoughts
It seems very likely to us that MXM will go a long way - at least on paper - to revolutionizing the mobile graphics market for the better.
From the supplied information and talks with nVidia, we can really only see MXM becoming a big success in a short amount of time, probably achieving mainstream status toward the end of the year or shortly after.
We tried thinking of disadvantages with MXM but failed to find any despite our efforts. The big issue we brought up with nVidia during our media conference call was royalties but as we mentioned several times, MXM is totally royalty-free - no company will need to pay a cent to nVidia to use the technology.
If MXM had not been royalty-free (which we initially thought it might be), it would have been almost certain it would have not even passed with the notebook manufacturers which nVidia are working with for the launch and as a result not come this far. Since producers of MXM technologies will not have to pay nVidia a cent (like motherboard chipset makers need to do for their Pentium 4 products with Intel), there should be no reason why MXM won't take off in a big way.
MXM offers a splendid and truly revolutionary way for notebook users to upgrade their graphics with pure simplicity without having to buy a brand new notebook, as well as giving a greater range of options when it comes time to purchasing. We look forward to seeing MXM revolutionize the way we all think of mobile computing and we are pretty sure everyone involved in the notebook business will be just as thrilled as we will surely see a big increase in notebook sales as MXM becomes widespread in the months ahead.
