NVIDIA working on GeForce GTX 990M mobile GPU

An unexpected gaffe by Wu Haijun, who is the CEO of the Chinese computer manufacturer Hasee, has revealed that NVIDIA is working on a new powerful mobile GPU that will be known as GeForce GTX 990M.

The new GPU is codenamed N16E-GXX as of now and will be based on the Maxwell GM204 GPU architecture, just like the GeForce GTX 980. The chip will also have a configurable TDP that will lie between 100W and 185W so laptop manufacturers will be able to choose the clock speeds of the chip depending on the cooling solution used. In addition the GTX 990M chip will be soldered onto the motherboard so it will not be upgradeable if a more powerful chip arrives.

Speaking of power, the GTX 990M seems to be an unstoppable monster since the performance of the chip is expected to be two times higher than the performance offered by the GeForce GTX 980M. The performance will come at a price, though – the GTX 990M is expected to cost twice as much as the GTX 980M.

The new mobile GPU monster is expected to arrive in Q4 2015 but not around Christmas time. It’s not necessary to mention that you will find it in the most powerful gaming notebooks available.
