NVIDIA NVS 5200M

NVIDIA NVS 5200M

The NVIDIA NVS 5200M is an entry-level, dedicated business graphics card for laptops. It should be based on the 28nm GF117 Fermi chip, but 40nm GF108 versions are also possible. According to the specifications, the NVS 5200M is very similar to the consumer GeForce GT 620M but with slightly reduced clock rates.

Architecture

The GF117 is based on the optimized Fermi architecture of the GF108 (GeForce GT 540M) chip and offers 96 shaders, 16 TMUs and 4 ROPs. Each shader core is clocked twice as fast as the rest of the graphics chip, a technique known as hot clocking. More detailed information on Fermi can be found on the GT 435M GPU page.

Performance

The 5200M supports a turbo mode up to 715 MHz and can provide a similar  performance like the GeForce GT 620M or 540M - despite the 64 bit memory interface.

Features

The shader cores (also called CUDA cores) can be used for general calculations with APIs such as CUDA, DirectCompute 2.1 and OpenCL. PhysX is theoretically possible, but the NVS 5200M may be too slow to handle both PhysX and 3D rendering for modern games. 3D Vision is not supported according to Nvidia.

According to Nvidia, the power consumption of the NVS 5200M should be below that of the GeForce GT 525M due to improved efficiency in the GF117 core architecture.
