NVIDIA MX300 Series: Pascal is back

While we await more news on NVIDIA’s 7nm architecture, the company is still planning graphics cards based on Pascal. As a reminder, NVIDIA Turing is based on 12nm TSMC FinFET architecture, while Pascal is using 14nm Samsung FF for low-end parts.

The last two generations of MX series have featured Pascal (MX2xx) and Maxwell series (MX1xx).  Meanwhile, the latest information from the drivers indicates that the MX3xx series will focus on Pascal, but it won’t be a simple rebrand of the MX2xx series.

The higher-end part named GeForce MX350 is more than likely to feature GP107 GPU. The ID which was spotted in the drivers appears right after GTX 1050 Mobile. An educated guess would suggest similar specifications, which means 640 CUDA cores.

On the other hand, the GeForce MX330 should still feature GP108 GPU with 384 Cores, so just as many as MX250. That said, the MX350 could replace the GTX 1050M in the current lineup, while MX330 would be a refresh of MX250.

According to Notebookcheck’s preliminary specs, who also spotted first notebooks running the MX3xx series at CES 2020, the ‘new’ MX3xx Pascal series is expected late February.
