Nvidia Unveils New Maxwell GM108 Based GeForce 940MX, 930MX and 920MX Graphics Cards
Back in December, it was rumored that Nvidia was planning to launch new GeForce 900MX graphics card models for notebooks, and now almost three months later the cards are finally revealed.
The new GeForce 900MX models will replace a year-old Fermi GF119- and Kepler K208-based GeForce 900M series which was aimed at the entry-level segment. In comparison, the latest graphics chips, which include GeForce 940MX, 930MX and 920MX, are all based on Maxwell GM108.
While the detailed specs are yet to be revealed, what we do know is that the cards will come in two memory formats: GDDR5 and DDR3. Further, clock speeds and memory capacities will vary depending on notebook models, though all 900MX models support PCIe 3.0 interface.
As for performance gain compared to their predecessors, check out the below 3DMark 11 scores – which also clearly indicate GDDR5 memory having a substantial edge over DDR3.
Nvidia hasn’t announced the pricing and availability details yet. We’ll keep our eyes out and let you know when more information rolls out.
