    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.

      hello everyone, I have a MSI GT683R with a dying (pretty much dead actually) GTX560M in it.
       
      I am looking to upgrade it to a new GPU, I have found a AMD Firepro M6100. (I first wanted to upgrade to a GTX970M, but that's too expensive for now... and corona is also making things difficult) I have already ordered a second heatsink to modify because I didn't want to modify the original heatsink it came with.
       
      But, my question is. Does it even work in this system? I have heard of people getting it to work in the barebone variant of this system. But I am not sure if it would work in the 'fully loaded' variant.
       
      Also, my games are mostly RAM/CPU dependent and I am looking for a little extra power in this system. I have found a I7-2860qm and I want to upgrade to 32GB of RAM, is it possible on this system? the sticker says 'max. 16GB of RAM' But I have feeling it says that due to the limitation of the cpu that's already on this system (I7-2630QM, 16GB RAM max.)

      Hello everyone, it is 2020 and i've been looking literally EVERYWHERE for a modded vBios for an Asus G751jy (980m 4gb) to unlock voltage control above 25mV, can someone help me?
      I've seen people have been linking the mod so here's mine, latest 213

      I recently purchased a replacement 980M (Clevo model) for my P770DM-G after the original died, however, after installing the card the laptop doesn't boot. I only get a black screen, and after a couple minutes the fans spin to max before shutting down, which is the same thing that happens when I try to boot it without any gpu at all. I've tried the reset procedure, unplugging, removing battery, and removing CMOS, to no avail. It does beep before shutting down (I counted 22 times exactly). Anyone have any insight as to what the problem is?

      Hi,
       
      I am having some heat issues with the GTX 680m I installed on my Alienware M17x R2 (yes, its old).  Having installed and ran HWiNFO64, it appears that the maximum rpm of the GPU fan is 2560rpm, even when the GPU reached a maximum of 93° Celsius.  The rpm seems low, but what is the maximum rpm of the fan, does anyone have any ideas?
       
      Thanks

      alienware 15 r2 970m with i7-6700hq vbios request so i can overclock and mess with voltage.

      BIOS version backup made with techpowerup GPU-z.

      or can someone re direct me to one already made that will work? all links i find are dead, thanks.
