A screen shot was taken yesterday of NVidia's driver page and apparently GeForce 300M cards were sited on the list. No real info seems to be available aside from model numbers:
Nvidia Corp. prepares to release a new GeForce 300M series of graphics processing units (GPUs) designed for notebooks, a listing at the company’s web-site revealed. Specifications of the new graphics chips are unclear at this point.
Based on a list of chips located at Nvidia’s own web-site, the company preps GeForce GTS 360M, GT 335M, GT 330M, 310M and 305M products. The lineup seems to cover performance-mainstream, mainstream and entry-level segments of the mobile market. The list has been discovered by a member of NotebookReview web-site's forums.
So, since NVidia never truly released a G200 based laptop GPU, do you think these will be it? For those that don't know, the GTX, GTS and GT 200 series for laptops were based off the G92 and subsequent cores. Possibly Fermi based mobile cards? Or just another rebranding scheme in the making? All relevant comments and opinions welcome.
If you follow the link, they don't list anything about a 380 model...
The GT200 series weren't included in notebooks because they were too large and power hungry - perhaps now nvidia has got them down to size to function in mobile form, but there's no 380 model because it still requires too much juice, even if it has been reduced?
Or maybe they're just releasing it later (which doesn't make much sense from a business perspective..).
