NVIDIA Announces GeForce GTX 680MX, GTX 675MX and GTX 670MX Mobile GPUs

NVIDIA added three new high-performance mobile GPUs to its lineup, the GeForce GTX 680MX, GeForce GTX 675MX, and GeForce GTX 670MX. Based on the 28 nm GK104 silicon, the GTX 680MX topples GTX 680M as NVIDIA's (and perhaps, the world's) most powerful GPU for notebooks. While the GTX 680M features 1344 CUDA cores, with 720 MHz core and 3.60 GHz memory, the new GTX 680MX features 1536 CUDA cores, with the same 720 MHz clock speed, but faster 5.00 GHz memory. 2 GB of GDDR5 memory is standard issue for this chip.

Moving on, NVIDIA created a new SKU that takes position between the Fermi architecture-based GTX 675M, and the GTX 680M. Called the GTX 675MX, the new SKU is also based on the GK104 silicon, but configured with 960 CUDA cores, and 2 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 256-bit wide memory interface. The core is clocked at 600 MHz, and memory at 3.60 GHz. The last of the three is the new GTX 670MX, based on the 28 nm GK106 silicon. Like the GTX 675MX, it is configured with 960 CUDA cores (the full compliment of GK106), but with a narrower memory interface, that's 192-bit wide. Its core is clocked at 600 MHz, and memory at 2.80 GHz. 2 GB GDDR5 is the standard memory amount. Expect a wave of performance notebooks and all-in-one desktops to feature these new chips.

MX used to mean Mediocre eXploitation didn't it ?

MX mobile must be different to desktop.

FAQ#1: Does it*.*? Yes, it does come with programmable shaders.

Oh, wasn't this what Apple announced the other day as an upgrade option for the iMac...
Clearly it all belongs to Apple now ;)

So they just underclocked a GTX680 and slapped an MX to the name ?
Interesting! Wonder how will it compare the full desktop version...

Bout time NV actually used Kepler chips in the rest of the 600M series instead of more Fermis. Surprised they went with the MX nerf moniker. Should have tossed them the Ti instead.

Wow that pretty damn god for a laptop....usually they always cut high end GPU specs in half for gaming laptops :)

What does the GTX2 stand for ? It isn't mentioned in the news post..




This and this

Notice something ?
the chips are the same but labeled differently also labeled with components rotated around

680M chip is named N13E-GTX-A2

680MX may be N13E-GTX2-A2 or A3, or B2 <-- doubtful to be B
