GeForce 9600M GS 

Released June, 2008
  • 430 MHz
  • 1 GB GDDR3
6.9 Out of 10

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

Performance is outstanding, resulting in benchmarks that are well above other similarly sized Ultrabooks based on Haswell or Broadwell.

MSI GS30 Shadow Review - A Notebook and GPU GamingDock

by Ryan Shrout |
www.pcper.com
Behind the power supply is a mounting location for a 3.5-in hard drive that will show up as an internal drive when the GS30 is properly docked.
Does the combination of a very high performance thin and light notebook and the GamingDock truly create a mobile and gaming system that is worth your investment?

NVIDIA Launches GTX 960M/950M and GeForce 940M/930M/920M

by Jarred Walton |

Considering the GTX 965M has 1024 CUDA cores many felt it would use GM206 as well, but that didn’t happen; in a similar fashion, those expecting (hoping) GTX 960M and 950M would use a derivative of GM206 are also going to be disappointed and it continues to use the GM107 chip.
Interestingly, the clocks and core configurations mean that potentially the GTX 950M is actually a bit slower than GTX 850M (640 cores at 936MHz + Boost compared to 914MHz + Boost), but NVIDIA doesn't disclose the full range of base clocks and Boost clocks so the 950M will hit higher clocks on average compared to 850M.
Apple has determined that some AMD Radeon HD 6970M video cards used in 27-inch iMac computers with 3.1GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 or 3.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processors may fail, causing the computer’s display to appear distorted, white or blue with vertical lines, or to turn black.
In a somewhat baffling piece of news this weekend, word comes that Apple has initiated an internal replacement program for the video cards on some of their mid-2011 27” iMacs.
