Alienware graphics amplier

There are a few of problems with the idea.
  • The laptops, espcially the AW13. would lose ports since the properitary port would have to be really long. Look at the MSI GS30 to know what I mean. Even then, it may not even fit on the 13 or possibly 15.
  • The 13's GPU can only use 4 lanes thanks to the CPU's limitation. Adding more lanes does not fix this problem. It would only benefit the bigger laptops, and having the whole line use the GA is more beneficial.
  • Having multiple cables and ports won't reallt help with the price. It'll make things more cmplicated and worse. A redesign of he laptops and GA would be needd if this idea was approved.
  • Having 4 lanes cmpared to 16 lanes is not as bad as some people think. At most a 10% recduction, on average, for the 15 and 17 R2, and 20%, for the 13, amount of performance is lost, not counting whatever CPU is being used. The only way to fix the 13's bandwidth problem is providing a CPU that uses PCI 3.0 as opposed to 2.0, hence the worse drop on the 13 and not 15 and 17.

What do you mean by "full graphics memory bandwidth"? You mean PCI-E 3.0 x16 or something else enitrely?
Are you having problems with the GA or something?

M6800 update needs to occur

The problem is that computer manufacturers seem to have decided that no-one with a 17 inch screen needs a resolution above 1080p. I'd like to see better resolutions start showing up on screens that really need it rather than 13 inch ultrabooks!
