NVIDIA Raises The Graphics Performance Bar For Mainstream Notebooks

NVIDIA is pushing the pace for graphics performance in mainstream notebooks with the announcement of the GeForce 100M Series of graphics processing units (GPUs). The NVIDIA GeForce 100M Series, which includes the GeForce G105M, the GeForce G110M and the GeForce GT 130M GPUs, meets the performance demands of today’s visual computing applications. Whether you’re viewing or editing photos, finding directions, playing a game, or watching a high definition movie, an NVIDIA GeForce 100M Series GPU makes your notebook run silky smooth, with amazing visuals.

The three new GeForce 100M Series GPUs each represent a significant performance increase in their respective segments. The GeForce G105M is over 55% faster than the previous NVDIA product in its segment, while the GeForce G110M is 35% faster than NVIDIA’s previous mainstream GPU. The GeForce GT 130M is around 17% faster than its predecessor.

Like all NVIDIA GPUs, GeForce 100M Series GPUs deliver more than just fast frame rates with support for new advances in PhysX, stereoscopic 3D, and parallel computing. Through NVIDIA CUDA technology, GeForce 100M Series GPUs support the growing number of applications that use the power in the GPU’s 8 to 32 processor cores for more than rendering pixels to the screen—from GPU-accelerated distributed computing applications, GPU-accelerated game physics and GPU-accelerated video conversion.

The GeForce GT 130M will be available in the Lenovo IdeaPad Y650 and the GeForce G110M will be available in IdeaPad Y550 and IdeaPad Y450 which are scheduled to ship in March of 2009. The GeForce G105M, GeForce G110M and GeForce GT 130M will be announced on January 8, 2009.Source: NVIDIA

Which one is the previous generation of the 105M ? 8400M GS type ?
If so 55% is something really nice for everyday use.... I just want to know memory bandwidth now. :cool:

Previous Versions:

105M = GeForce 9300M GS as it also features 8 shader cores and is classified in the same performance region.

110M = The GeForce G 110M features 16 shader cores as the old 8400M GT or the 9500M G.

This could mean that they're actually new parts.... since they get more performance they could be the same chips with a die shrink, like the new high end parts... then they can up the clocks and get a performance increase, instead of a simple rebrand... it's a refresh.
I also think it's a new part, because 55% over the same chip is just impossible.

+1 you can add to it different specs from desktop to notebook parts with the same name, execpt for the "M", and also different names for the "same" card: 8600M GT to 9600M GT where they did both, 8600M GT share specs with desktop parts, while 9600M GT is a 8600M GT of the new generation which is far different on specs of the desktop 9600GT..........
Never mind, it's so confusing that I even got lost explaning what I think...... :nutkick:
