At Computex, Nvidia officially introduced today a new line-up of notebook GPUs, the NVIDIA GeForce 9M Series of graphics processors, and a new graphics innovation, NVIDIA Hybrid SLI technology.
"Beginning this summer, GeForce 9M GPUs and Hybrid SLI, paired with AMD and Intel CPUs, will enable a new breed of notebooks," said Jeff Fisher, senior vice president of the GPU business at NVIDIA. "These new notebooks will be optimized to deliver a visual experience and raw computing performance that traditional cookie-cutter notebooks with integrated graphics simply can?t touch."
The new graphics engine delivers up to 40% faster performance than the previous generation GeForce notebook GPUs and 10x the performance of integrated graphics solutions, according to Nvidia. A
new PureVideo HD video processing offers improved color and contrast. BD-Live and dual-stream video playback is also supported, coupled with multi-display connectivity with support for all the latest display standards including DVI, HDMI 1.3, Display Port 1.1, and VGA.
In addition, the new GeForce 9M notebook GPUs enable the world?s first notebooks with Hybrid SLI technology. The new technology enables two NVIDIA GPUs, one low-power and one high-performance, to work cooperatively in the same PC to deliver two features?GeForce Boost and HybridPower. These features deliver more performance from both GPUs for visual computing when needed, or save power by switching to the low-power GPU when not.
The new GeForce 9M GPUs will power the visual computing experience in notebook models beginning this summer.
