A number of recently introduced laptops, which have not yet been launched, are reminiscent of NVIDIA’s GeForce MX450 graphics chip. It is intended for entry-level and intermediate computers that want slightly more powerful graphics than the base, including compared to the new Iris Xe chips processors . However it has not yet been officially announced, at least so far.
The GeForce MX450 is known to be manufactured in two levels. One is up-to-date, i.e. based on the Ampere platform with support for GDDR6 and PXI Express 4.0, a form that indeed fits and communicates with the modern generation of computers.
Surprisingly, however, NVIDIA introduced another version of the chip based on the previous Pascal architecture, which does not offer support for PCIe 4.0 and in terms of memory it is GDDR 5. It is not clear why, unless there is a requirement from the company for laptops that do not incorporate the most modern processors Offered by Intel.
According to NVIDIA the new chip offers up to 2.5 times higher performance compared to embedded chips, and they support the company’s Optimus technology as well as GPU Boost.
