NVIDIA Introduces Enhanced Line of GPUs

Today, NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA  ) announced a new line of five notebook GPUs, called the GeForce 700M line. The company mentioned three new features that it says will improve the user experience:

  • NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0 technology for better graphics performance.
  • NVIDIA Optimus technology, which turns the GPU on or off to preserve battery life.
  • GeForce Experience software, which "adjusts in-game settings for the best performance and visual quality specific to a user's notebook" and keeps drivers up to date.

"With no effort or input from the notebook user, the technologies work in the background to save battery life, enhance performance and enrich the visual experience -- providing the best notebook experience the GPU can deliver," the company said in a press release.

The company added that "every leading notebook manufacturer" will be rolling out machines with GPU Boost, including  2.0 technology, including Acer, Asus, Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, MSI, Samsung, Sony, and Toshiba.
The new line of GPUs will be used in the performance and mainstream segments and are available today.
