NVIDIA is bringing its Turing architecture to its GeForce MX series, an example of which has now appeared on 3DMark. Sporting a 540 MHz base clock and 2 GB of GDDR6 VRAM, the possible GeForce MX450 is based on the TU117 GPU, the same found in the GTX 1650 and GTX 1650 Max-Q.

As we reported in February, NVIDIA is developing a TU117-based successor to the MX350. Possibly called the MX450 and codenamed the N18S-G5, our sources informed us that NVIDIA is yet to finalise a marketing name. Thought to offer performance comparable to the GTX 1650 Max-Q, the GPU has now appeared on 3DMark.

Spotted by @_rogame, the GPU reports a 540 MHz base clock, 100 MHz lower than the MX350. There is no mention of boost clocks, though. The listing also reports 2 GB of VRAM, which is in line for the GeForce MX series. While @_rogame also reports that the VRAM is GDDR6, this does not help us identify whether it is an N18S-G5-A or N18S-G5-B. NVIDIA will apparently configure the former with GDDR5 or GDDR6 VRAM, though. @_rogame also states that the VRAM is operating at 10 Gbps.

All Turing-based GeForce MX cards will have 25 W TDPs, with NVIDIA hoping that it can use the new series to counter Intel and the Xe DG1. While our sources inform us that the Turing-based MX series will make its way into Tiger Lake laptops in 2H 2020, there is no date yet on when these will come to market.
