Nvidia announces new GeForce 500M chipsets for the mobile warriors

Nvidia announces new GeForce 500M chipsets for the mobile warriors
Nvidia is not a no-show at CES, as they did unveil new graphic products from their company. This time around however, it’s something that you can easily purchase off the shelf. Nvidia has unveiled a new line of GPUs at the show that will be the graphics muscle behind some of the best performing notebooks on the market in 2011.
The newly announced GPUs are the GeForce 500M GPU family, and they include the GT 540M, the GT 550M, and the GT 555M, and the more budget 520M and 525M. Those high-end mobile chipsets offer at least four times the performance of integrated GPUs and two times the DirectX 11 performance of competing GPUs. The 520M and 525M are the two mainstream parts in the new line. The new GPUs also support Optimus technology for longer battery life by switching between the integrated GPU and the discrete GPU. That’ll come very handy with new Sandy Bridge laptops.
“GeForce GT 500M GPUs combined with Optimus technology enable the most versatile laptops ever created,” said Rene Haas, general manager of notebook business at Nvidia. “Pairing a great GPU with a strong CPU delivers Optimized notebook performance for consumers.”
The new GPU line also supports Nvidia 3D Vision, PhysX, CUDA, and uses the Nvidia Verde notebook drivers and they support Nvidia 3DTV Play to deliver content from the PC to 3D TVs in the living room. That means 3D getting into mainstream laptops powered by Nvidia.
The GPUs will be used in machines from just about every major computer maker on the planet including Acer, MSI, Alienware, ASUS, Clevo, Dell, and many others. NVIDIA has already announced that it will be working with Tesla to power infotainment systems in the Model S electric sportscar.
