|For its coming-out party, nVidia has announced Quanta, Wistron, Uniwill, Alienware, AOpen, FIC, Clevo, Arima, and Tatung as MXM launch partners. What's interesting about this list is that there's only one OEM on it: Alienware. Large-scale OEMs like Dell, HP, IBM and Gateway aren't listed. NVidia officials wouldn't divulge details, but they did state the company was evangelizing MXM to all OEMs and that some are close to signing on, but aren't ready to go public. Some OEMs will wait until they roll out their next-generation laptops to announce their MXM endorsement.|
|NVIDIA has released reference MXM design files for the upcoming GeForce 6 Go series of notebook GPUs to MXM partners. This additional commitment to support MXM notebook partners will dramatically accelerate time-to-market and reduce engineering costs for MXM notebooks with GeForce 6 Go Series GPUs.|

|ODMs and OEMs will have to decide which strategy they prefer, and nVidia and ATI mobile engineers will stay busy doing multiple designs to accomodate different customers. Interestingly, if an ODM decided to deploy an ATI GPU on MXM, ATI still gets paid and gets the design win, and we'll be curious to see if any ODMs go that route.|
