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 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 GDDR5 memory interface now also supports speeds up to 3.5 GHz = 7 GHz effective (up from 3 GHz).

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.

Thanks to the increased core speeds (up to +21% in Boost for the 25 Watt version), the new MX250 should be slightly faster than the older MX150. First benchmarks indicate a 5% increase. Still modern should only run fluent in low settings (see the page of the MX150 for games and benchmarks).

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