Radeon HD 6850M 

Released January, 2011
  • 575 MHz
  • 2 GB GDDR5
These chips are still based on Kepler (600-series), but feature more CUDA cores, more memory, a wider memory bus, and faster clockspeeds.

Intel is so much focused on the power output of the Core M die that they even designed a new PCH known as Broadwell PCH-LP which is focused on power.

NVIDIA Quadro M6000 Announced

by Scott Michaud |

I wonder what this means for the Tesla line, and whether we will see a variant of Maxwell with a large boost in 64-bit performance, or if that line will be in an awkward place until Pascal.
The memory, but not the cache, is capable of ECC (error-correction) for enterprises who do not want a stray photon to mess up their computation.

Nvidia Maxwell goes mobile with GTX 980M and GTX 970M

by Slobodan Simic |
www.fudzilla.com
Despite their same name, mobile GPUs are always way below their desktop counterparts for obvious reasons, and while that might happened before, the new Maxwell 2.0 changes everything and closes the relative performance gap placing the performance of the mobile GTX 980M at around 80 percent of the GTX 980.
Efficiency is quite impressive considering the GPU is still based on the 28nm manufacturing process.
Another key enabler of the Core M processor is the use of 2nd generation FIVR and 3DL for power efficiency delivery.
There’s a small section dedicated to the memory and I/O controllers at the bottom of the die while along the right side, we can note the system agent, display engine and memory controller.
