NVIDIA GeForce MX230

The Nvidia GeForce MX230 is an entry level dedicated  laptop graphics card with DirectX 12 support (FL 11_0) based on the older Maxwell architecture. According to our information it is a renamed Geforce MX130 / 940M and therefore still based on the old GM108 chip with 384 shaders and maybe slightly increased clock speeds.

The performance should be similar to the corresponding GeForce MX130 and 940MX version (see our extensive benchmarks). Demanding games may not run fluently even in the lowest detail settings. Less demanding games like Fifa 18 (with a powerful CPU) or Overwatch are also playable in medium settings.

The TDP of the card should be rated at about 15 to 30 Watt (depending on the version, clock speeds and memory). Therefore, the GPU is best suited for laptops from 13-inch and up.

Beware: Our informations are still based on rumors and leaks and may change till release in Feb. - March 2019.
