FUD Zilla received notice that NVIDIA's mobile Kepler GPUs are now shipping to notebook makers.
The launch date is said to be April 8th, the same date as Intel's Ivy Bridge release.
The first massive batch is expected shortly after Chinese New Year, so let’s say mid-February and after that time most Nvidia Kepler early adopters and Ivy Bridge machine supports will start making its products based on new 22nm CPUs and 28nm Nvidia graphics. Of course, Optimus is a key feature that got Nvidia that so much traction. It doesn’t cost almost any battery life, unless you play a game or you need your GPU to take some heavy load and give you some better frame rates.
The launch date for both Ivy Bridge mobile CPUs as well as Kepler mobile parts is the first or second week of April, with April 8th being the date we’ve heard.
