NVIDIA on Wednesday unveiled its latest range of mobile graphics cards. Sandwiched between the graphics chip maker’s mainstream and enthusiast offerings, the new GeForce 500M family of GPUs is focused on performance.
The GPUs introduced yesterday are all fabricated on the 40nm process technology and feature up to 1.5GB of GDDR5 or DDR3 memory, with the GeForce GT 540M, GeForce GT 550M, and GeForce GT 555M offering four times the performance of integrated graphics and the GeForce GT 520M and GeForce GT 525M offering around twice as much. Of course, they are all designed to work with Intel’s new generation of Core processors.
NVIDIA also reminded us in the press release that GeForce 500M GPUs support DirectX 11, NVIDIA 3D Vision, PhysX physics engine, CUDA and NVIDIA 3DTV Play. The new range will be hitting the market later this month as part of laptops from the likes of Acer, Alienware, Asus, Dell, Fujitsu, Lenovo, MSI, Samsung, Sony, and Toshiba.
