Nvidia Intros New GeForce 700M Mobile GPU Series

This new notebook GPU series can crank out up to 65 frames per second in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

Nvidia on Monday introduced a new Kepler-based GPU lineup for the notebook scene, the GeForce 700M series. It delivers a "trifecta of technologies" including GPU Boost 2.0, Optimus tech, and the GeForce Experience software. OEMs introducing notebooks with the new GPU will include Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, Lenovo, MSI, Samsung, Sony and Toshiba.

"There is an elegant simplicity to Nvidia's GeForce 700M notebook technologies," said Rene Haas, vice president and general manager of the notebook business unit at Nvidia. "You use your notebook how you want, and GeForce makes your experience awesome."

This new GPU series includes the GeForce GT 750M, GeForce GT 745M, and GeForce GT 740M GPUs for the performance segment. The mainstream notebook market will be graced with Nvidia's GeForce GT 735M and GeForce GT 720M GPUs.

The tech accompanying the new GPU series works in the background to save notebook battery life while enhancing performance and the visual experience. GPU Boost 2.0 will automatically adjust the chip's clock speed to maximize graphics performance while Optimus automatically switches the GPU on and off when needed, conserving battery power.

"Unlike any GPU ever created, we’re making it easier to get at all that great performance by bringing it all to you automatically," the company said. "Gone are the days of messing with control panels or game settings to balance performance, quality, and battery life."

Nvidia reports that when graphics are set at Medium detail level, GeForce 700M GPUs can crank out up to 90 frames per second in StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm, 65 frames per second in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, 66 frames per second in Batman: Arkham City, 48 frames per second in Battlefield 3, and 64 frames per second in Shogun 2: Total War.

The company also explains that the GeForce Experience software, the result of five years of research and development, processes every graphics setting combination and determines which settings maximize image quality while also retaining a smooth, playable framerate with the notebook's hardware and software. It also keeps the system's GeForce drivers up to date.

Nvidia goes into more detail about the new 700M series in a blog posting here, including a few charts that show the performance difference between this series and Intel's HD Graphics 4000 GPU.

    joytech22Why don't they ever release their high-end with their low-mid range stuff?This is why I'm still on a 7970M.


    Because it's easier to rebrand stuff than to print the new silicon dies.

    EDIT: BTW, Nividia and AMD are both guilty of the rebranding.

    "Dude, what do you mean the 610m is actually a slightly higher clocked 520m? And that the 420m creams both 610m and 520m? Isn't 610 is higher than 420?"

    Comeon Nvidia, I am pretty sure everyone is more excited on the desktop GPUs instead of mobile GPUs. Give us some news about Geforce 700 series desktop cards!

    yea, 90fps in starcraft 2, yes you can do amazeing things with a gpu once you reduce the graphics in a game to nothing.

    hell im sure i got tf2 to run off a 3 core amd laptop with intergrated (non apu) graphics to about 60fps when i reduced the graphics to next to nothing hand decreased the resolution a bit too.

    Will they do the GTX 300s thing again? Release a rebranded product just for notebooks, then call the next-gen desktop part GTX 800s? That makes you feel like your card went from flagship to two generations behind in a metter of months.

    There's apparently a bit of difference, not a complete rebrand. It's similar to what the GTX 500 series was to the 400.

    I say stop making these things more powerful and start making these things require little to passive cooling. I mean come on, who the hell wants a powerhouse when your gonna hear the fans of your laptop at their loudest settings even with headphones on?

    The methods of branding from AMD and Nvidia should be illegal.

    The GTX680m is NOT a GTX680 but more so a down clocked GTX670. If AMD or Nvidia want to release a mobile badge then the pipelines on the GTX680m should match the GTX680. Nvidia can always lower the core and memory frequency to lower voltage requirements.

    If Either companies can't get a 680 to work at those settings then maybe they should call it a damn 680m. MAYBE they should just call it a damn 670m as their top end mobile GPU. The people who truely understand this are the ones who got a $2200 notebook with a 680m, thinking they'll get playable frame rates just like their desktop 680 in Crysis 3 ultra and go find out it completely sucks.

    Oh wait, I am one of those people. SCREW YOU AMD, NVIDIA mobile branding. We should SUE you!

    (680m spec)
    Core count: 1344
    GPU clock: 720mhz
    Memory interface: 256bit

    (670 spec)
    Core count: 1344
    GPU clock: 915
    Memory interface: 256bit

    (680 spec)
    Core count: 1536
    GPU clock: 1006
    Memory interface: 256bit

    Do away with all the "M" tags! Intel and AMD CPUs are just as bad. Intel will release a mobile i5 CPU and your not getting a quadcore but more so a dualcore with Hyperthreading, >_>
