NVIDIA Unveils Pascal-Powered GeForce MX150 for Laptops

NVIDIA has announced a new laptop GPU, powered by its Pascal architecture, ahead of its Computex appearance next week. The GeForce MX150, aimed at entry-level customers, boasts three times the performance-per-watt than the 940MX.

Built for Gaming and Photo and Video Editing

If you’re waiting for the rumoured GTX 1080 Ti mobile iteration, the MX150 will hardly excite. NVIDIA’s new mobile GPU won’t let you play games at 4K and 60fps, but should run many games in low-to-normal quality at 720p and a framerates between 30 and 60. If you’re a visual artist, though, the MX150 will add good support for photo and video editing, according to NVIDIA:

“Is your current laptop unable to keep up with the demands of the latest must-have applications, and lacking the performance to run frequent tasks in a timely manner? Or are you in the market for an affordable laptop that’s got enough power for photo and video editing, as well as a spot of gaming at the end of the day?

If so, new GeForce MX150 laptops are exactly what you need, cruising through day-to-day tasks, and giving you excellent GPU-accelerated results in Premiere Pro, Photoshop, and other applications. Powered by Pascal architecture, GeForce MX150 laptops are also capable of running popular PC games smoothly.”

Better Performance and Less Power Consumption

The GeForce MX150 isn’t going to set the world alight, but NVIDIA says the GPU will facilitate thinner laptops that use less power for better performance:

“If you’re unfamiliar with our Pascal architecture here’s a quick primer: it’s the world’s most advanced and power efficient GPU architecture, powering the world’s fastest graphics card, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti; leading supercomputer farms; artificial intelligence systems; self-driving cars from the world’s largest car manufacturers; and now, the GeForce MX150.

As a result, GeForce MX150 laptops run applications and games with a fraction of the power compared to previous-generation Maxwell-based GeForce 940MX laptops, giving you up to 3x superior performance-per-Watt. In other words, GeForce MX150 enables thinner laptops that run applications faster while sipping less power.”

GeForce MX150 Specifications

  • 384 CUDA cores
  • 16 ROPs
  • GDDR5 Memory
  • 2GB DRAM
  • 16nm process

Pricing and Availability

The GeForce MX150 ships globally to Acer, Asus, Clevo, HP, and MSI next month. Pricing, as part of a laptop, will be down to the OEM.
