NVIDIA Introduces New GeForce GTX 700M Mobile GPUs for Gaming Notebooks
Last week, NVIDIA and its add-in board partners introduced a whole range of new top-tier GeForce GTX 770 and GeForce GTX 780 graphics cards. Prior to that in early April, NVIDIA had already announced the lower spectrum of Kepler GT 700M cards meant for low to mid-tier multimedia notebooks.
Now, NVIDIA has announced the arrival of the top-end gaming notebook GPUs from the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 700M series based on the Kepler architecture. According to NVIDIA, these powerful new GPUs allow manufacturers to design gaming notebooks to be up to 40% thinner and lighter than the current generation of gaming notebooks.
Like the reecently announced GPUs based on the Kepler architecture, these new GPUs will feature technologies like NVIDIA Optimus, GeForce Experience and NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0.
- NVIDIA Optimus technology, which enables extra-long battery life by switching the GPU on and off so it runs only when needed.
- NVIDIA GeForce Experience software, which adjusts in-game settings for the best performance and visual quality specific to a user’s notebook and automatically keeps GeForce drivers up to date.
- NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0 technology, which intelligently adjusts GPU clock speed to maximise graphics performance.
The new range of gaming GPUs will start from the NVIDIA Geforce GTX 760M, and end at the Geforce GTX 780M, which is now the world's fastest notebook GPU (according to NVIDIA).
The new Geforce GTX 700M GPU lineup:
- GeForce GTX 780M – The world’s fastest notebook GPU
- GeForce GTX 770M – up to 55 percent faster than the product it replaces
- GeForce GTX 765M – Selected by Razer for the world’s thinnest PC gaming laptop, 40 percent thinner and lighter than the current record holder
- GeForce GTX 760M –up to 30 percent than the product it replaces
If you like what you see, and are in the market for a new gaming notebook, you might want to keep a lookout for next week's PC Show, where some manufacturers will showcase their products fitted with the new GTX 700M GPUs.
