VideoCardz writes three new GPUs from NVIDIA will soon find their way to the laptop market. This includes the GeForce GTX 960M which uses a mobile version of the GM107 GPU, the GeForce GTX 950M which uses a lower-clocked GM107M chip and the GeForce 940M which is based on the GM108M.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M (N16P-GX)
We still didn’t hear anything about GTX 960M in notebooks, although desktop alternative is almost here. However, mobile variant has nothing to do with the desktop model. Judging from the component ID number, GTX 960M will benefit from GM107 power efficiency, but not so much from it’s gaming horsepower.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M (N16P-GT)
The GTX 950M is also based on GM107M, but it will be lower clocked, and quite possibly using GTX 750 specs. What I can tell you is that x50 parts are always the most popular, due to low cost of the GPU.

NVIDIA GeForce 940M (N16S-GT-S)
The GeForce 940M is not even a part of GTX series, in fact it’s not even a GT model. What we do know is that DEV.1347 means Maxwell GM108M (N16S-GT-S), so this card with 384 CUDA cores is definitely for multimedia purposes.
