NVIDIA Announces GeForce GTX 560M and GT 520MX Mobile GPUs 62

MojoKid writes "NVIDIA just took the wraps off of a couple of new mobile GPUs at Computex and announced a slew of notebooks designs that will feature the new chips. The new GeForce GTX 560M and GT 520M will be arriving very soon, in notebooks from Asus, Alienware, Clevo, Toshiba, MSI, Samsung and others. The GeForce GT 520MX is an entry level DirectX 11 GPU designed for thin, light, highly mobile platforms. It sports 48 CUDA cores with a 900MHz graphics clock, 1800MHz shader clock, and 900MHz memory clock. Decidedly more powerful, the GeForce GTX 560M is outfitted with 192 CUDA cores and clocks in at 775MHz, with 1559MHz shaders, and 1250MHz for GDDR5 memory."

    How does this compare to Intel and AMD's graphics integrated CPUs?

    The 560M is way higher end than integrated CPU's. It's on-par with desktop performance. Without benchmarks yet, I'd guess that it's probably similar to the GTX 560 non-mobile version.

    Perfect design, made for mobile machines, cheap, powerful, fast, sleek.

    Be wary on the Linux side of the 'Optimus' technology. I didn't do due diligence and impetuously ordered a new laptop from Dell with an nVidia card (GT 525M). Turns out that there was no way in the Dell laptop to turn it off, and Linux couldn't see the nVidia card, just the intermediating Intel card. The ‘automatic graphics switching’ is done in software only under Win7. End result - no OpenGL under Linux. End-end result, I sent it back.

    There is a project to get Optimus working on Linux ( but I really don't have time, and the switching has to be done manually at the moment.
