NVIDIA GeForce MX250

NVIDIA GeForce MX250

The Nvidia GeForce MX250 is a dedicated entry-level mobile graphics card for laptops. According to our information it is just a renamed MX150 with maybe slightly increased clock speeds. Therefore, it is still based on the Pascal GP108 chip as the  desktop GeForce GT 1030 with 384 shader cores and a 64 Bit memory bus. There will still be two versions, the normal 25 Watt version and a low power version with 10 Watt TDP and reduced performance (The MX150 with 10W had a 32% lower clock speed).

The GP108 chip is manufactured in a 14 nm FinFET process at Samsung (LPP) and offers a number of new features, including support for DisplayPort 1.4 (ready), HDMI 2.0b, HDR and improved H.265 video de- and encoding (PlayReady 3.0). 4K HDR with Netflix however wont run due to the minimum 3 GB graphics memory that is required. Compared to the bigger Pascal chips, the small GP108 does not support Simultaneous Multi-Projection (SMP) for VR and G-Sync. A full list of improvements and the new Pascal desktop GPUs is available in our dedicated Pascal architecture article.

The performance should be similar to the MX150 (see for games and benchmarks) and therefore demanding modern games only run in low settings.

The MX250 first appeared with 2 GB GDDR5 in the upcoming HP ZHAN 66 Pro 14 G2 Notebook (see momomo_us / Twitter).

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