NVIDIA prepares new mobile video cards
Just a few days ago NVIDIA announced the mobile GeForce GTX 965M graphics card based on the new Maxwell architecture. Now it seems that soon the GTX 965M will be followed by at least three new mobile models – the GeForce GTX 960M, GTX 950M and GeForce GTX 940M.
The information about the new product launch is not official just yet. Instead the new cards were noticed in new NVIDIA drivers and, unfortunately, will be based on previous year technology. Namely the GTX 960M will offer the GM107 Maxwell GPU with 640 CUDA cores, while the GTX 950M will offer the same GPU with 512 CUDA cores. The only difference between the GTX 960M and the GTX 860M seems to be in the clock speed department – the GTX 960M will be higher clocked.
The GeForce GTX 940M will be an even slower model – it will offer the GM108 GPU with 384 CUDA cores only and will be, in fact, a rebranded version of the GeForce 840M GPU. No word on clock speed as of now.
The new GPUs are expected to reach the market this quarter.
