There hasn’t been a lot of activity in the mobile GPU market for quite a while now. Unless you’re excited about renaming hardware. Both AMD and Nvidia seem to actively follow this strategy, occasionally with absurd results – for example Nvidia presenting us an apparently brand new mobile graphics chip as in case of the GeForce 820m, which is in fact still a chip based on the Fermi generation that originates from the 400m series and has been rebadged since the 500m series.
The GeForce GTX 880m isn’t new hardware either. It uses the same GK104 chip as the GTX 780m which is on the market only since last summer, the board is basically the same.
However there has been at least one noteworthy change when it comes to the hardware, let’s take a closer look at the specifications.
