    NVIDIA Readying New Maxwell Based Mobile GPUs


    Brian

    It seems NVIDIA is getting to ready to release two new mobile Maxwell GPUs in Q2 2016, the GTX 970MX and GTX 980MX. With the company already dominating the high end notebook market and 14nm/16nm next generation GPUs on their way like Polaris, the timing of this release seems a little odd. 

     

    Both GPUs will be positioned as slightly more powerful than their existing GTX 970M and GTX 980M counterparts with increased CUDA cores, texture units, and clock speed while retaining the same TDP. In addition to the aforementioned, the 970MX has 56 ROPs vs 48 in the 970M while the 980M and 980MX have the same 64 ROPs. 

     

    WCCFTech created a table which shows the differences between the new GPUs and existing ones:

    TDP ~150W 125W 125W 100W 100W 90W 75W

    There's no word on what the price will be for these new cards or what notebooks will feature them but if I had to guess, I'd say the usual suspects like Alienware, Clevo, MSI and Asus will be among the first to have these ready.

    Lot of guess work there in their tables...

    Unlike BGA GPUs, MXM cards are not rated in TDP but rather TGP to include not only the core chip, but rather total board draw:
     

    - The MXM GTX980M 8GB had a TGP of 103W, the BGA version a TDP of 85W

    - The MXM GTX970M 6GB had a TGP of 80W, the BGA vesion a TDP of 62W

    - The MXM GTX965M 4GB (old GM204 version) a TGP of 70W, the BGA version a TDP of 56W 

    - The new BGA GTX965M (GM206) has a TDP of only 50W, same as the old GTX960M

     

    The currently only 125W (TGP) Maxwell MXM card is the GTX980 SLI variant used in the MSI GT80S....

    Well considering their drivers in the last year or so seem to be one facepalm after another I dont know if itd be worth getting. Sadly theres not much competition these days :(

    I agree with Brian, this is a little bit strange on timing. However they may feel they need just a "bump" in excitement over the current generation of mobile GPUs just until they release pascal so that sales dont waver too much. And seeing as it is the same hardware essentially it would be very cost effective for the slight increase of unlocking a little more than what was on the original.

      Hi everyone,
      i'm writing this post to ask you if someone is interested about making for me an overclocked gpu vbios.
      I have a Dell M6700 with a NVIDIA K3000M and i' m kinda good with it but i m searching about getting more performance from it.
      So basically i want to have a 850 Mhz OC vbios rom and a 950 Mhz OC vbios rom, is there anyone that can do this for me please ?
      I tried using kepler vbios tweaker but i remains stuck at 548.9 Mhz without going up and i can t figure how to do it.
      I'll attach my VBIOS BACKUP CLEAR COPY.
       
      PS: Tech Inferno seems to have upload problems now so if you want the rom image contact me pls asap

      Hello everyone! I am looking for an answer to a problem I cannot find a solution to ... I purchased an Amd wx 4150 MXM GPU module su e bay to upgrade my HP 8570W Mobile Workstation which is currently equipped with a Fire Pro M4000. Once the new GPU has been installed, the PC screen no longer turns on but works only with external monitors connected via the docking station. The same happens once the drivers are updated! If I put the old card back on, the integrated monitor starts working again ... How can I fix it?

      Hello, A couple of days ago I got a new GPU but when I installed it into my computer I was unable to use it but now I know why. When checking the device manger I went into the events tab of my GPU when I went to view all events, I noticed an error it said " event 411 kernel PnP " and It also said Problem Status: 0xC01E0438. I believe this is why my GPU hasn't been working on my PC. If you know how to fix this problem or have info on how to fix this problem that would be greatly appreciated. I'm also using a EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660.
