NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980MX Photo NVIDIA GM204 Photo
The GeForce GTX 980MX is a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in June 2016. Built on the 28 nm process, and based on the GM204 graphics processor, in its N16E-GXX-A1 variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0. The GM204 graphics processor is a large chip with a die area of 398 mm² and 5,200 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked GeForce GTX 980, which uses the same GPU but has all 2048 shaders enabled, NVIDIA has disabled some shading units on the GeForce GTX 980MX to reach the product's target shader count. It features 1664 shading units, 104 texture mapping units and 64 ROPs. NVIDIA has placed 8,192 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 256-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 1050 MHz, which can be boosted up to 1178 MHz, memory is running at 1500 MHz.
Being a mxm module card, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980MX does not require any additional power connector, its power draw is rated at 148 W maximum. This device has no display connectivity, as it is not designed to have monitors connected to it. GeForce GTX 980MX is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 interface.
