GeForce 305M 

Released January, 2010
  • 525 MHz
  • 512 MB GDDR3

These chips are still based on Kepler (600-series), but feature more CUDA cores, more memory, a wider memory bus, and faster clockspeeds.

NVIDIA Announces Quadro M6000 & Quadro VCA (2015)

by Ryan Smith |
However the company is also pushing the use of Physically Based Rendering (PBR), a compute-intensive rendering solution that uses far more accurate rendering algorithms to accurately model the physical characteristic of a material, in essence properly capturing how light will interact with that material and reflect off of it rather than using a rough approximation.
However as FP64 compute is not widely used in graphics, this is not something NVIDIA believes will be an issue.
Although not inexpensive, it will allow customers to get some extra mileage out of their laptop, especially with the major improvements in performance we have seen with the Maxwell 2 based GTX 980M and GTX 970M.
If you are not afraid to open up your laptop, and you are looking for a graphics boost, you may want to check out the kits which can be found at Eurocom’s site.

AsRock and BMW debuts M8 – The Unstoppable Mini-ATX Masterpiece

Wow, #AsRock and #BMW DesignWorks USA’s #M8 Gaming Machine is a beauty.
The A Command is basically an OLED Display with a control knob that has multiple uses, ranging from volume control to system information and display.
The GTX 780M is not quite the mobile equivalent to the desktop GTX 680, but NVIDIA is matching it up against AMD's 8970M GPU and claims that it can run games like Sleeping Dogs, Assassins Creed 3, and Borderlands 2 at Ultra settings (1080p).
NVIDIA is now adding higher-end mobile GPUs to the 700M family with the GTX 760M, GTX 765M, GTX 770M, and GTX 780M.
