NVIDIA may launch GeForce GTX 980MX and GTX 970MX video chips

NVIDIA recently updated its video card list with the addition of new desktop and mobile solutions but apparently the US company is not done – there’s a new online rumor now that claims NVIDIA will soon release two more new mobile video cards called GeForce GTX 980MX and GeForce GTX 970MX.

The new cards will use the same Maxwell-based GM204 GPU, which will be made on the tried and tested 28 nm tech process, courtesy of TSMC. The GTX 980MX will sit between the notebook version of the GeForce GTX 980 and the GeForce GTX 980M. The new video card will strongly resemble the desktop GeForce GTX 970 but will come with lowered GPU/memory speeds that will run at 1048 MHz and 5000 MHz, respectively. The card will also have either 4 GB or 8 GB of video memory that will run over a 256-bit memory bus.

The GeForce GTX 970MX will be a version of the GTX 980M that will come with cut-down specs. The GPU inside the card will have 1408 stream processors, 88 texture units, 56 ROPs and a narrower 192-bit memory bus. The GPU will run at 941 MHz, while the memory will operate at 5000 MHz. Speaking of this the GTX 970MX will have either 3 GB or 6 GB of VRAM memory.

The release of the GTX 980MX and GTX 970MX is expected in Q2 2016.
