ChatGPT in your pocket: A palm-sized Nvidia external graphics card weighs only 250g – but who will use it?

Edge computing specialist Adlink has announced a new product it hopes to create artificial intelligence development more accessible. The Pocket AI (opens in a new tab)presented at the Nvidia GTC 2023 conference, is a pocket-sized, portable GPU (or eGPU), which features an Nvidia RTX A500 professional graphics card (most likely in MXM form factor) with 4GB of GDDR6 memory and connects to the host computer via a Thunderbolt 3 port. This is roughly equivalent to a Geforce RTX 3050 graphics card for a laptop.

The company says its primary use case is the development of AI “from students and beginners who are still learning and reviewing knowledge, to seasoned programmers who cultivate and demonstrate new concepts,” but professional graphics users will find Pocket AI very useful for many applications : 2D/3D content, CAD (e.g. AutoCAD 2024), 3D rendering, AI image processing, etc.
