A few months ago, it was rumoured that Nvidia was planning to update its 900 series mobile GPU lineup. Those rumours turned out to be true, with Nvidia launching – without much fanfare – the GeForce 920MX, 930MX and GTX 940MX, all of which are based on the Maxwell GM108 architecture.
All three newly introduced Nvidia mobile GPUs will come in two types of memory standard: DDR3 and GDDR5. It must be said however, that clock speeds and memory sizes of all three “MX” GPUs will depend on the specific laptop model.
Bear in mind that despite being new, MX GPUs by Nvidia aren’t as powerful as their mobile GTX counterparts. That being said, NotebookCheck has benchmarked the MX GPUs and found that only the GDDR5 variants perform better compared to their predecessors.
Baring the Maxwel GM108 architecture means that MX GPUs may be compatible with Nvidia’s latest technology such as DSR (Dynamic Super Resolution) and MFAA (Multi-Frame Sampled Anti-Aliasing). So far, there aren’t any consumer-ready gaming laptops with MX GPUs released yet.
Unfortunately, Nvidia has not mentioned more details regarding its new mobile GPU lineup, but expect news to surface over time.
