NVIDIA announces GeForce 700M family of GPUs


NVIDIA has announced a new series of notebook GPUs in the GeForce 700M series that will seamlessly and automatically maximize notebook performance—without any effort or input from the notebook user. These new cards in the GeForce 700M series are the GeForce GT 720M and GeForce GT 735M for the mainstream segment, and for those who need the extra power for tasks such as gaming, the GeForce GT 740M, GeForce GT 745M and the GeForce GT 750M.

These technologies work in the background to save battery life, enhance the performance and enrich the visuals on the notebook display no matter what you’re doing—whether it’s work or play related. The new NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0 technology will intelligently adjust GPU clock speed to maximize graphics performance, so you can go from a low-GPU intensive activity (browsing the web, Skype) to something GPU intensive such as playing games on your notebook.

Another new feature is the NVIDIA Optimus technology, which will solve the problem of short battery life—it will switch the GPU on and off so it runs only when needed. There will also be dedicated software for the new GPUs, called the GeForce Experience, which adjusts in-game settings for the best performance and visual quality specific to a user’s notebook and will also keep GeForce drivers up to date.

“There is an elegant simplicity to NVIDIA’s GeForce 700M notebook technologies,” said Rene Haas, vice president and general manager of the notebook business unit at NVIDIA. “You use your notebook how you want, and GeForce makes your experience awesome.”

Manufacturers that will introduce GPU Boost 2.0 technology include (but are not limited to) Acer, Asus, Dell, HP, Lenovo, MSI, Samsung, Sony, and Toshiba. You can learn more about the GeForce 700M family of notebook GPUs at www.GeForce.com.
