The new GeForce GTX 990M should demonstrate performance on par with desktop GeForce GTX 980, which means that the new graphics adapter will be the highest-performing graphics solution for mobile computers. Thermal design power of the fully-fledged GM204 is pretty high, hence, the GeForce GTX 990M will be used only for ultra-high-end laptops.
Previously it was expected that Nvidia will use a version of its GM200 graphics chip for its GeForce GTX 990M adapter. However, even at low clock-rate, the GM200 may be too hot and power-hungry for laptops.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 990M is based on the GM204 GPU
