GeForce 9800M, 9700M Offer Performance and Energy Savings in a Broad Range

NVIDIA has released two lines of high performance graphics processors (GPU) for the notebook PC market, the GeForce 9800M series and the 9700M series. These are sub-classified into GT and GTS for the 9700M and GT, GTS and GTX for the 9800M. These new GPUs provide a wide range of options for manufacturers to choose from and design high-performance gaming and multimedia notebooks.

These 9800M GTX GPU is based on the same G92 core, and will outperform its previous generation 8800M GTX that also happens to be based on the same core. The rest are based on the G94 and the newer G96 cores. These GPUs are CUDA compliant and will be able to accelerate game physics using the PhysX API. They support NVIDIA Hybrid Power technology. Simply put, on notebooks with integrated graphics processors (IGP) along with these GPUs, the system will be able to switch over to the IGP when not gaming, and switch over to the GPU when heavy graphics tasks are running (such as gaming, 3D rendering, HD Video acceleration, etc.). Speaking of video, these GPUs support Powervideo HD technology, includes VP2 acceleration. There's no information on these GPUs' fabrication technology yet. Specifications provided below.

ummmmm wtf? the naming scheme makes no sense, gt is faster than gts for the 9800's but reverse for the 9700's?:wtf::wtf:, not to mention they don't match the desktop naming at all. 9700 could be based off of the 9500gt (g96) or 9600gt(g94) with the mobil 9800gtx variant being a 9800gt/8800gt in reality.

the specs are awesome for laptops, but dang, someone needs to fire the marketing team who made the naming scheme.

I agree Nvidia's naming game is screwy. I think they have monkeys pick the numbering for new cards.

I do like the specs of the cards. Just updated on Notebookcheck.com, 9800 GTX 10K in 3D06

Kewl... The 9800M has two phases... those are some rather large ceramic caps there. Card seems rather huge for a laptop.

I only wish that these perform better than the G70/G80 mobile parts from Nvidia. Both previous generation parts run nuclear hot, had plenty of driver errors and high defective rate. I might suffer from tube vision as I have had to deal only with one manufacturers mobil computers, but it is a major one anyways. ATI parts run equally hot but have been more stable in my experience.

The news is about chips, not about cards. The pictures simply show MXM samples. I recall there being three sizes of MXM cards, so you'd have to figure what kind of slot you actually have and see i what forms they will be available. Knowing the MXM standard, this won't be cheap though.

I highly doubt it, first you will need to find your gpu card type, mxm or Dell specific. try mxm-upgrade.com and see if you can find your card's size.

Second is to find when it's out. I doubt the 9xxx series are going to fit your original cards heatsinks/spreaders.

As well you may want to check the power usage, pretty sure there is a huge difference between the two cards power requirements.

Looks like a no, but you can research to try to make it happen. Good luck :toast:

whats new?

both sides do it all the time for stuff. Here are some examples of this for the desktop.

7300GT based on G73 not G72 as the 7300 name would make you think.

x1300XT based on RV530 no RV510 as name would imply.

Both of those in retrospect should have been called

7600 or x1600 variants but wern't

another is the 8600M GT to totally diffrent cards if you look one is DDR3 one is DDR2 and you have no idea which is which untill you get it. 8800M GTX is really a G92 not a G80. I can go on but why bother
