NVIDIA recently launched its GeForce Super GPUs for the gaming notebook space, in the form of the GeForce RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2080 Super. Now, rumours online are suggesting that the GPU brand could be working on a Turing-based GeForce MX series GPU.
The supposed evidence was posted by serial leakster _rogame (@_rogame) via Twitter, who in turn found the details on Notebookcheck. The post suggests that the GeForce MX GPU in development will be based on the TU117 architecture, will have 2GB GDDR6 running at 10Gbps, plus a base clock of 540MHz.
Next Nvidia MX card with TU117
> 540MHz base clock
> 2GB 10Gbps GDDR6
This should be < 25W SKU

The post is also accompanied by a screenshot of the alleged GPU’s performance on UL’s 3DMark, which is unsurprisingly listed down as a “Generic VGA” because it has yet to exist within the UL database. Of course, the fact that it was paired and tested with a 10th generation Intel Core i7-10510U does kind of cement the GPU’s existence.
Sadly, there’s no additional information about the GPU’s specs, despite trying to dig for a little more information. Beyond the screenshot and _rogame’s tweet, there isn’t even information about the GPU’s CUDA core count.
As always, NVIDIA has not officially confirmed the existence of the alleged Turing-powered GeForce MX GPU. Further, there’s also some debate as to which mobile GPU will be making its debut for laptops next: the RTX 2060 Super or this supposed replacement of the current GeForce MX350. Until then, take this news with a grain of salt.
