NVIDIA has released three new mainstream notebook GPUs: the GeForce G105M, GeForce G110M and the GeForce GT 130M.
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.
Rumor has it that the GeForce 130M, GeForce G110M and GeForce G105M are replacements for the GeForce 9600M GT and 9650M GT, GeForce 8400M GT and GeForce 9500M G, and GeForce 9300M GS, respectively.
