NVIDIA preparing new GeForce 800M mobile graphics cards

GeForce GTX 800M series

NVIDIA is purportedly preparing brand new GeForce 800M(X) graphics cards.

NVIDIA is extending its mobile lineup according to the newest driver listing. Cards listed as N16 models are supposedly the GM204 variants, which might be used as MX variants in updated lineup.

The listing shows yet unannounced Quadro K2200M (Kepler) and thirteen N16 mobile chips. The the GM204 might arrive in multiple forms into mobile segment, which has rather restrictive limitations in power consumption. We all know that second generation Maxwell will take power efficiency to the whole new level, but the most powerful desktop variant is still too powerful to be used a mobile GPU.

For that reason GM204 will probably require some downclocking and few Streaming Multiprocessors Maxwell (SMMs) disabled. Then NVIDIA might launch them as MX variants (for example: GTX 880M -> GTX 880MX).

I know there are many of you waiting for Maxwell-based mobile GPUs, we are all tired of Kepler rebrands. Next 3 months should be very interesting in this topic. We will keep you posted.

New listing:

NVIDIA_DEV.137A = “NVIDIA N15M-Q3”
NVIDIA_DEV.13B3 = “NVIDIA Quadro K2200M”
NVIDIA_DEV.13D7 = “NVIDIA N16E-GX”
NVIDIA_DEV.13D8 = “NVIDIA N16E-GT”
NVIDIA_DEV.13D9 = “NVIDIA N16P-GX-B”
NVIDIA_DEV.13E4 = “NVIDIA Graphics Device ES-A”
NVIDIA_DEV.13E5 = “NVIDIA Graphics Device ES”
NVIDIA_DEV.13E7 = “NVIDIA Graphics Device”
NVIDIA_DEV.13E8 = “NVIDIA Graphics Device”
NVIDIA_DEV.13F8 = “NVIDIA N16E-Q5”
NVIDIA_DEV.13F9 = “NVIDIA N16E-Q3”
NVIDIA_DEV.13FA = “NVIDIA N16E-Q1”
NVIDIA_DEV.13FE = “NVIDIA Graphics Device”
NVIDIA_DEV.13FF = “NVIDIA Graphics Device”
NVIDIA_DEV.1617 = “NVIDIA N16E-GX”
NVIDIA_DEV.1618 = “NVIDIA N16E-GT”
NVIDIA_DEV.1619 = “NVIDIA N16E-GX-B”
NVIDIA_DEV.1638 = “NVIDIA N16E-Q5”
NVIDIA_DEV.1639 = “NVIDIA N16E-Q3”
NVIDIA_DEV.163A = “NVIDIA N16E-Q1”

Released products:

GTX 675M: N13-GS1-A1
GTX 680M: N14E-Q1-A2
GTX 780M: N14E-GTX-A2
GTX 880M: N15E-GX-A2
