NVIDIA to update mobile GPUs Page: 1
NVidia GeForce 9700M, 9800M Details Surface NVIDIA mobile GPUs
 
It appears that NVIDIA are set to refresh their mobile GPU line shortly, especially considering the high rate of failure that their previous-generation are experiencing. According to our source, NVIDIA are set to roll out 5 new graphics chips:
 
...it looks like there's a replacement for every card currently on offer in the 8000M-series from the slow to the fast.

The cards line up with specs as follows:

9700M GT
32 shaders
625MHz core clock
1,550MHz shader clock
128-bit Memory interface
800MHz memory clock

9700M GTS
48shaders
530MHz core clock
1,325MHz shader clock
256-bit Memory interface
800MHz memory clock

9800M GTS
64 shaders
600MHz core clock
1,500MHz shader clock
256-bit Memory interface
800MHz memory clock

9800M GT
96 shaders
500MHz core clock
1,250MHz shader clock
256-bit Memory interface
800MHz memory clock

9800M GTX
112 shaders
500MHz core clock
1,250MHz shader clock
256-bit Memory interface
800MHz memory clock
 
The new range look set to continue the trend of closing the gap between desktop and mobile performance. The 9800M GTX, is pretty much an 8800 GT on a spec-to-spec comparison, although doubtless the thermal constraints of the notebook model are undoubtedly much lower.
