Earlier this year, Nvidia unleashed its DirectX 11 offerings on the desktop world with the GeForce GTX 480 and 470. Now the company is spreading the Fermi technology to the mobile segment.
Today Nvidia officially announced the GeForce GTX 480M (opens in new tab), which it touts as the world's fastest notebook GPU and "DirectX 11 done right" with hardware tessellation support.
"GeForce GTX 480M delivers nearly three times more Nvidia CUDA cores over previous generation Notebook GPUs, which means users get unbelievably fast video transcoding, upscaling from standard definition to high definition and real-time movie clean-up with the click of a button," Nvidia's Matt Wuebbling wrote in a blog post (opens in new tab).
