Nvidia has launched three new mobile graphics processors, named the 920MX, 930MX and 940MX, based on the Maxwell GM108 parts and designed to replace their predecessors, the 920M, 930M and 940M respectively.
The new chips are available for laptop makers to include in their low-end gaming laptops.
They new chips bring support for GDDR5 memory, which is a big upgrade from the outgoing M series, which supported the much slower DDR3.
Both the 940MX and 930MX parts pack 384 CUDA cores and have a 64bit memory bus. The former has a clock speed of 1,176 MHz, while the 930MX sports a clock speed of 967MHz. These chips will also launch with DDR3 onboard, but with increased GPU frequencies.
The 920MX features 256 CUDA cores and has a 926MHz clock speed for the GDDR5 version, and a 965MHz clock speed for the DDR3 model.
The chips also support the following technologies:
- NVIDIA Optimus Support
- NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0
- NVIDIA GameWorks Support
- Microsoft DirectX 12 API
- OpenGL 4.5
- PCI Express 3.0
