    Default Which laptops have Hybrid graphics ?

    I thought the Sony SZ was the only laptop that had hybrid graphics (the ability to switch from a dedicated graphics card to integrated graphics to conserve battery life).

    But apparently the Alienware m15x has it too, calling it binaryGFX.

    Are there any other laptops that have this feature?
    Or any planned to have this feature?

    The new upcoming AMD mobile chipset, puma, will have an IGP, and if the manufacturer installs discrete graphics, then the Ichipset can switch between the two.

    on the desktop front; the new hybrid crossfire will allow the IGP to work with a radeon graphics card...we'll see if that comes to notebooks

    I found something about Puma here
    http://www.infoworld.com/article/08/...raphics_1.html
    The platform will include the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3400 discrete graphics card, which is specially designed to work with an integrated graphics card to either crunch extreme graphics or to get better system performance-per-watt...
    I hope it's reasonably fast card.

    word is out that the desktop solutions with intergrated + 3400 working together can play crysis at 1024x768
