MXM modules are not exactly popular these days. Even high-end gaming notebooks often come with soldered-down GPUs and VRAM. The only exceptions are some Alienware / Dell laptops that use proprietary GPU modules. Making MXM modules based on Intel’s desktop GPUs is something unexpected from Gunnir, yet keeping in mind the company’s focus on Intel-based graphics cards, it is possible that the company wants to address desktops and embedded machines with its MXM 3.1 Type-A cards.
