NVIDIA announces GeForce GTX 965M graphics card
NVIDIA has announced a new mobile graphics card – the GeForce GTX 965M. The new video solution is based on the latest Maxwell architecture and uses the same GPU found in the desktop GeForce GTX 980 flagship, except that it comes with cut-down performance and features.
Specs-wise the GTX 965M comes with the NVIDIA GM204 GPU and offers 1024 CUDA cores. The memory bus has been cut down to 128 bits but the memory used remains GDDR5. As to the amount the needs of the GTX 965M are serviced by 2 GB or 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (depending on the model of the mobile device where the GTX 965 is used). The GM204 GPU runs at 944 MHz and sports GPU Boost 2.0 (the clock speed boost will also depend on the model where the GPU is used), while the on-board GDDR5 memory will run at 5 GHz.
The main task of the GeForce GTX 965M will be to retire the current GeForce GTX 870M generation. According to some preliminary benchmarks the new video solution will do just that but is significantly slower than the GTX 970M and GTX 980M graphics cards. The new card will be in notebooks soon.
