NVIDIA has released new GeForce 9M series graphics cards for notebooks. There are no new enthusiast parts but the mobile GeForce 9 lineup now includes the GeForce 9100M G, GeForce 9200M GS, GeForce 9300M G, GeForce 9300M GS, GeForce 9500M G, GeForce 9500M GS, GeForce 9600M GS, GeForce 9600M GT and GeForce 9650M GS. The first notebooks with the new GeForce 9M GPUs are expected this summer, they will be part of the AMD Puma and Intel Centrino 2 lineup.
The GeForce 9650M GS is one of the fastest parts in the mobile GeForce 9 series, it features 32 shader units, 625MHz core, 1250MHz shader clock, 800MHz 512MB memory and a 128-bit memory bus. All GeForce 9M series cards feature Hybrid SLI support for lower power consumption and more performance.
With the launch of the GeForce 9M Series of notebook GPUs, NVIDIA has once again engineered the world's fastest notebook GPUs, designed for running today's graphically intensive games, 3D applications and HD movies at extreme resolutions. In addition, this new GPU features a multi-core architecture which will not only speed up entertainment applications, but will also speed up today's lifestyle applications, like video encoding from a PC to a small personal media device, where the speed up in the video conversion is up to 5x faster with the GeForce 9M family GPUs."
In addition, the new GeForce 9M notebook GPUs enable the world's first notebooks with Hybrid SLI technology. The new technology enables two NVIDIA GPUs, one low-power and one high-performance, to work cooperatively in the same PC to deliver two features -- GeForce Boost and HybridPower. These features deliver more performance from both GPUs for visual computing when needed, or save power by switching to the low-power GPU when not. Hybrid SLI gives users the quality and performance benefits of a high-performance GPU without sacrificing battery life.
The NVIDIA GeForce 9M family of GPUs also feature:
A new graphics engine that delivers up to 40% faster performance than
the previous generation GeForce notebook GPUs and 10x the performance
of integrated graphics solutions
New PureVideo HD video processing features for improved color and
Full support for the latest Blu-ray advancements including BD-Live and
dual-stream video playback
Extensive multi-display connectivity with support for all the latest
display standards including DVI, HDMI 1.3, Display Port 1.1, and VGA
Support for the new MXM version 3.0 graphics module specification
