NVIDIA Announces New Kepler-Based Mobile GPUs
NVIDIA today announced its new GeForce GT 700M-class of GPUs for notebooks. The new mobile GPUs will be based on NVIDIA's Kepler architecture and like their desktop counterparts, will feature technologies like NVIDIA Optimus, GeForce Experience and NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0.
Here's a brief summary of each technology:
- NVIDIA Optimus - Optimization technology that enables the notebook to switch between discrete and integrated graphics. This allows users to enjoy longer battery life and amazing visuals without having to manually change settings.
- GeForce Experience - Automatically delivers the latest driver updates and automatically optimizes in-game settings according to your notebook configuration. Additional information about GeForce Experience in our news article here.
- GPU Boost 2.0 - Automatically boosts GPU clocks, thus delivering up to 15% more performance. Completely dynamic and automatic. All GeForce GT 700M GPUs will have this feature. First introduced with the GeForce GTX Titan, you can find out more about GPU Boost 2.0 here.
And headlining the launch will be no less than five GPUs - the GeForce GT 720M, GT 735M, GT 740M, GT 745M and GT 750M. Bear in mind, however, that the GeForce GT 720M is based on the older Fermi architecture. Additionally, PhysX is supported on all GeForce GT 700M-class GPUs but 3D Vision is supported only by GeForce GT 730M GPUs onwards.
Thanks to the prowess of these GPUs, NVIDIA has already scored design wins with major OEMS such as Lenovo, ASUS, Samsung, just to name a few. Expect notebooks featuring NVIDIA's new GPUs to trickle into the market soon, and when they do, rest assured we will be putting them to the test.
