NVIDIA GeForce MX150 (Laptop GT 1030)

NVIDIA GeForce MX150

The Nvidia GeForce MX150 is a dedicated entry-level mobile graphics card for laptops based on the GP108 chip with the Pascal architecture. It was announced mid 2017 and is the mobile version of the desktop GeForce GT 1030. It should offer the same 384 shader cores and 64 Bit memory bus manufactured in 14 nm. The clock rates and performance however are a bit higher than the desktop GT 1030. It was first found in the announcement of the HP Envy 13 as an "optional NVIDIA GEForce MX150 (2GB GDDR5). Officially it is the successor to the older Maxwell based GeForce 940MX. The performance however is higher than the old GeForce GTX 950M with GDDR5 memory. The power consumption (25 Watt TDP of the chip alone) however lies on a level of the old 940MX (23 Watt). The older 950M and the new GTX 1050 are rated much higher with 40 Watt TDP. The GeForce MX150 also uses a small 23 x 23 mm package due to the small chip size.
