Nvidia is currently working on a next-generation switchable graphics solution which was confirmed a while ago by Nvidia's top management. Nvidia admits that its first implementation of switchable graphics was not the nicest and neatest solution (Hybrid-SLI), but promises that its next-generation works really well and that it will give the company many design wins.

Several big Nvidia supporters such as ASUS, Acer, Dell and many others have asked Intel to get Nvidia 40nm chips inside of its designs. Thus far, we were told to expect many Calpella platform designs to have Nvidia graphics.

Intel's 32nm Arrandale dual-core with integrated graphics might be very popular due its low TDP. Nevertheless, we are speculating that Nvidia's upcoming switchable graphics solution may be implemented in a lot of these designs. As of now, ATI still has yet to launch its 40nm DirectX 11 mobile hardware and its RV740-based 40nm mobile chip has yet to be seen on the market.

All in all, we remain hopeful that Nvidia's new low-power, switchable graphics solution to high TDP discreet power-hungry GPUs will work as well as our sources promise.
