In an AMA in Reddit, Robert Hallock of AMD said: “Ultra-thin notebooks are awesome to carry, but nobody in their right mind would confuse one for a gaming notebook. But there’s still a HUGE appetite for thin notebooks that can game. I also bet there’s a bunch of gamers out there who, as they get into their 30s and 40s, wouldn’t mind condensing their entire computing life down into one device that does it all… External GPUs are the answer. External GPUs with standardised connectors, cables, drivers, plug’n’play, OS support, etc.”
They already informed that they might rock the Game Developers Conference next week! AMD has promised us the next-gen ultra-thin gaming laptops which may be powered by Thunderbolt 3 connectivity to give upto 40gbit/s bandwidth.
Specs – Intel® Core™ i7 4xxx, NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 960M, 15.6-inch 4K/UHD 8.2 M colours.
A couple of days or rather a week or two ago, Razor has revealed their external GPU system for their Blade Stealth Gaming Notebook with 4k touch display for the smoothest portable gaming experience. We should wait a week for the Game Developers Conference 2016 to happen and AMD should tell us something good about their ultra-thin gaming laptops.
A PC gamer and a tech guy here!
