NVIDIA GeForce 930MX

NVIDIA GeForce 930MX

The Nvidia GeForce 930MX is an entry-level DirectX 12 graphics card for laptops that was announced in the first quarter of 2016. It is the refresh of the GeForce 930M and now supports GDDR5 graphics memory. It is based on the same GM108 chip and may feature slightly increased clock rates. Therefore, it should perform similar to the Maxwell GPU in the Surface Book (see for benchmarks).

The performance will depend on the used graphics memory. With fast GDDR5 it should be similar or slightly faster than the Maxwell GPU in the Surface Book. With DDR3 it will be somewhere between the old 930M and 940M.

See our 920MX, 930MX, 940MX rumor news article for details on what is known so far.
