NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M and GeForce GT 520MX launched

Posted on Monday, May 30 2011 @ 14:29:14 CEST by


Earlier this year NVIDIA resurrected the "Ti" monniker with the GeForce GTX 560 Ti, and now the company breaths new life into the "MX" suffix with the GeForc GT 520MX, an entry-level laptop graphics card. Additionally, the company also officially introduced the GeForce GTX 560M, which should be about 15 percent faster than the GeForce GTX 460M.
NVIDIA today unveiled the first gaming notebook graphics processing unit (GPU) in its award-winning GeForce(R) 500M Series of notebook GPUs.

The GeForce GTX 560M graphics processor hits the "sweet spot" for gaming notebooks by delivering a no-compromise gaming experience at full 1080p resolution in the hottest new DirectX 11 titles. For the first time, leading OEMs will also be offering GeForce GTX gaming GPUs with NVIDIA(R) Optimus(TM) technology.

"The GeForce GTX 560M and NVIDIA Optimus mean gamers get 50 frames per second in Duke Nukem Forever and five hours of battery life in Microsoft Office," said Rene Haas, general manager of notebook products at NVIDIA. "That's real power and real portability."

Available only with NVIDIA GPUs, NVIDIA Optimus technology enables extra-long battery life by automatically switching on and off the GPU so that it runs only when needed. The smart convenience of NVIDIA Optimus technology is designed into over 80 percent of GeForce 500M Series notebooks and is used by every major notebook OEM.

GeForce GTX 560M GPUs are "DirectX 11 Done Right," and offer even more performance-per-watt than the previous generation, with faster frame rates and more detail with the same battery life. The power of GeForce GTX GPUs means gamers can play at full 1080p high-definition resolutions with the advanced technology features that set GeForce GPUs apart from the competition, including:

  • NVIDIA 3D Vision(TM) technology support, the #1 3D technology for notebooks
  • NVIDIA PhysX(R) technology support, for in-game real-time physics effects
  • NVIDIA CUDA(R) architecture support, for GPU computing applications

    GTX GPUs also support NVIDIA SLI(TM) technology, the industry's most scalable multi-GPU platform for doubling gaming performance, and are also supported by the highly-praised NVIDIA Verde(TM) notebook drivers.

    For thin-and-light notebooks, NVIDIA also refreshed its entry-level GeForce GT 500M GPUs with the arrival of the new GeForce GT 520MX GPU. GeForce GT 520MX offers better performance, wider support and a more advanced feature set than integrated graphics(i) and offers a step forward from the existing GeForce GT 520M GPU.

    Alienware and Toshiba will be offering notebooks featuring GeForce GTX 560M and Optimus technology. ASUS, Clevo, MSI and others will be offering notebooks featuring GeForce GTX 560M. ASUS, Samsung and others will be offering notebooks featuring GeForce GT 520MX.
