NVIDIA Quietly Launches its MX150 GPU for Mobile Solutions

NVIDIA has quietly added a new product to its mobile catalog, the MX150. This tiny GPU is apparently based on the company's desktop GP108-based GT 1030, which has been recently launched in a bid to bridge the gap between IGP solutions and discrete-class graphics processors. In fact, this product looks to serve the ultrabook market with its modest power requirements, offering system integrators a new GPU which packs a lot more "oomph" than Intel's integrated graphics chips, while ensuring a considerable battery life.

This means that the MX150 is being geared not towards gamers (as the lack of a GeForce moniker already implies), but media consumption enthusiasts who demand more flexibility from their graphics adapters. For now, the only confirmed spec is a 2 GB GDDR5 memory pool, which is in line with the desktop GT 1030.

Hey, I loved my GeForce 2 MX. It could play everything I threw at it between 2001 and 2007.

I assume it replaces the shitty 940MX? How does it compare to 940MX and 1050?

The 1030 is about the same performance as the 750 Ti and 960m.

940m= 35
1030= 60
1050m= 100

Mobile parts are always a bit slower, so 1030m ~50? Similar to 950m with GDDR5.

This new MX150/GT 1030 has 384 cores, the same number as the 940MX, and is clocked at 1468MHz boost (compared to 1122 - 1242 for the 940MX)

The biggest change is there appears to be no DDR3 version. So I'd think it'd be maybe 10% faster then the DDR5 940MX, and probably a healthy 30-40% faster then the DDR3 variant (which is the most common one) at the same TDP.

Should make a good low TDP GPU for things like the lenovo P50s and E470, small 14 inch machines with thin bodies. Not sure what else, off the top of my head, uses the 940mx.
