NVIDIA Raises The Graphics Performance Bar For Mainstream Notebooks



Lenovo uses the NVIDIA GeForce G110M GPU to deliver powerful high definition entertainment in their new IdeaPad Y650, the thinnest and lightest notebook in its class.
The new GeForce G130M delivers amazing gaming performance, flawless 1080p high definition video playback and supports NVIDIA CUDA technology to accelerate non-gaming applications.
Notebooks equipped with NVIDIA GeForce G100 series GPUs support NVIDA PhysX technology to accelerate in-game physics in games such as Mirror’s Edge from Electronic Arts.

What: NVIDIA is pushing the pace for graphics performance in mainstream notebooks with the announcement of the GeForce 100M Series of graphics processing units (GPUs). The NVIDIA® GeForce® 100M Series, which includes the GeForce G105M, the GeForce G110M and the GeForce GT 130M GPUs, meets the performance demands of today’s visual computing applications. Whether you’re viewing or editing photos, finding directions, playing a game, or watching a high definition movie, an NVIDIA GeForce 100M Series GPU makes your notebook run silky smooth, with amazing visuals.

The three new GeForce 100M Series GPUs each represent a significant performance increase in their respective segments. The GeForce G105M is over 55%i faster than the previous NVDIA product in its segment, while the GeForce G110M is 35%ii faster than NVIDIA’s previous mainstream GPU. The GeForce GT 130M is around 17%iii faster than its predecessor.

Like all NVIDIA GPUs, GeForce 100M Series GPUs deliver more than just fast frame rates with support for new advances in PhysX, stereoscopic 3D, and parallel computing. Through NVIDIA CUDA technology, GeForce 100M Series GPUs support the growing number of applications that use the power in the GPU’s 8 to 32 processor cores for more than rendering pixels to the screenfrom GPU-accelerated distributed computing applications, GPU-accelerated game physics and GPU-accelerated video conversion.

The GeForce GT 130M will be available in the Lenovo IdeaPad Y650 and the GeForce G110M will be available in IdeaPad Y550 and IdeaPad Y450 which are scheduled to ship in March of 2009.

When: The GeForce G105M, GeForce G110M and GeForce GT 130M will be announced on January 8, 2009.
