NVIDIA is having a great day at the office. Turns out the GeForce 580M can be touted as the “world’s fastest mobile GPU”, capable of running Crysis 2 on the new Ultra DX11 settings without much of an issue whatsoever. Meanwhile, the NVIDIA 570M is slightly weaker but is able to fit into more conventional systems, rather than large and power-hungry gaming rigs. It too is powerful, but not at all like the Crysis 2 performance seen on the 580M. Both 40-nanometer cards support DirectX11, OpenCL, PhysX, CUDA, 3D Vision, Verde drivers, Optimus, SLI, and 3DTV Play. As for manufacturers actually putting the chips into their notebooks (the power of each GPU can be altered by the OEM as well), Alienware has put in a fresh GTX 580M in their M18x laptop, while their older M17x will get a single-core version of the 580M with Optimus support rather than the defualt quad-core GPU that the normal 580M has, on top of the 1.5GB of GDDR5 memory, 384 cores running at 1.24GHz each, and a 256-bit memory bus. MSi and Origin have also released laptops today with the new GTX 580M as well.
PR after the break.
