Who would have thought that Nvidia was quietly launching a new Pascal-based low cost Pascal GPU, the GeForce MX150, ‘which is scheduled to replace the Maxwell-based 940MX GPU’, and is claimed to be able to offer up to ‘three times the performance per watt of its ‘predecessor.
The official specification of the new” GeForce MX150 GPU” does not seem to reveal information related to the number of CUDA cores, memory capacity, or clockspeed. This may be because actual implementation of existing mobile GPUs may differ from OEM models, and this specification depends heavily on the size (thickness, screen), cooling, and MSRP of the laptop. Nvidia seems to want consumers to think of the MX150 as a performance class for more than a set of varied mobile GPUs, and is claimed to be able to reach up to 60 FPS games on today’s popular games such as DOTA 2, CS: GO, League of Legends and World of Tanks.
Besides equipped with GDDR5 memory, “GeForce MX150 GPU” is also supported the same API technology with Pascal-based brounden (DX12, Vulkan, OpenGL 4.5). Not to mention the support of Nvidia Optimus, GPU Boost, and compatibility with GeForce Experience also comes standard with this latest mobile graphics. Although the price and availability of new laptops with GeForce MX150 GPUs are currently unknown, their participation in the next annual Computex 2017 show is worth the wait. Hopefully you can be present to watch it at the event. Hope this article useful to you, thank you
