Speaking in an interview with XbitLabs, Rene Haas, general manager of the notebook GPU business at Nvidia, said the graphics chip maker is at least considering external graphics adapters for notebooks.
"I think it is a big opportunity. We have two strategies at Nvidia: One is to put graphics everywhere, the other one is to [find more ways to] integrate discrete chips into the box," Haas said. "I think there is definitely a place for [external graphics cards for notebooks,] no question. We continue to look at whether this is a GPU [docking station] or external devices."
So what exactly is Nvidia planning for the notebook segment? We don't know, and Haas wasn't willing to divulge what exactly her company might be cooking up. But she did say that the price of graphics adapters is something that would need to be addressed.
"I think, the issue that has to be solved for something like that is the right price-point that hits the right segment. There is definitely a lot of interest in it and [this is] something we are keeping our eye on to be able to offer something there," Hass added.
