Apart from unveiling the GTX 1660 Ti, NVIDIA also refreshes their laptop graphics lineup with GeForce MX250 and GeForce MX230
NVIDIA has been aggressive with their Ray Tracing throughout 2018 and also started this year with the new RTX 20 series Mobile GPUs and with the RTX 2060 GPU.
Now they are turning their attention to the lower end mobile GPUs, specifically to their MX series laptop GPUs. So, recently NVIDIA has announced the successor to their much successful MX130 and M150 GPUs for thin and light laptops.
The new GeForce MX230 and MX250 GPUs are intended to deliver better graphics power than the current iGPUs offered by Intel. The older gen GPUs by NVIDIA were getting a bit outdated especially when powerful iGPUs by AMD are ruling the market and serving enough juice to run games on it easily.
Though these GPUs are faster and better but not as powerful as the GeForce GTX 1050 and GeForce GTX 1050Ti GPUs. Both of the new GPUs work seamlessly with NVIDIA’s Optimus technology to provide you with the perfect balance between long battery life and performance.
Unlike NVIDIA’s new recent GPUs, this one is based on the same Pascal architecture, and has NVIDIA’s CUDA technology to tackle demanding tasks, everyday work, basic video editing and entry level gaming.
Well, NVIDIA has not yet released any official specifications regarding the core counts, clock speeds, or memory configurations. But to show the performance improvements, NVIDIA has claimed of 3.5X and 2.6X improvements for the two new GPUs respectively (MX250 and MX230) compared to Intel’s UHD Graphics 620 integrated GPU, as tested on a Core i5-8265U CPU.
The GPUs will also have support for DirectX 12, Vulkan 1.1, OpenGL 4.6, and OpenCL 1.2. NVIDIA also confirmed of the PCIe 3.0 interface and will support same old GDDR5 memory.
NVIDIA’s Optimus technology will allow laptops to switch between their integrated and discrete GPUs easily. The two new GPUs will most likely begin to show up in laptops soon, as NVIDIA has just made both the MX230 and MX250 public.
Both the GeForce MX250 and GeForce MX230 will compete against AMD’s integrated Radeon Vega GPUs, which are powerful enough for basic gaming as well content creation.
