Nvidia Corp., the top supplier of discrete graphics processors, has recently unveiled its new mobile graphics chip aimed at computer enthusiasts and high-performance laptops. The new GeForce 8700M GT is a pre-overclocked version of the GeForce 8600M GT, however, speed boost allowed Nvidia to place it into the enthusiast-class.

Nvidia GeForce 8600M-/8700M-series graphics processors are based on the G84 graphics chips, which feature 32 stream processors, 16 texture modules, 8 raster operation units (ROPs) and 128-bit memory controller. The new GeForce 8700M GT graphics processor is clocked at 625MHz/1250MHz (base clock/shader clock) and is designed to feature 1600MHz memory, whereas its predecessor, GeForce 8600M GT featured 475MHz/950MHz clock-speeds for the chip and 1400MHz memory.

Nvidia GeForce 8-series graphics processing units support DirectX 10 as well as high-definition video playback accelerating technology. Mobile versions of the chips also feature power-saving capabilities.

“The GeForce 8700M GT GPU, the newest and fastest GPU in the GeForce 8M series of notebook graphics processors, raises the bar for DirectX 10 graphics and video performance,” a statement by Nvidia reads.

Nvidia indicated that GeForce 8700M GT GPU will be available in notebooks from numerous suppliers in North America, Europe, and Asia, including Toshiba, Sager, Prostar, Eurocom, Biohazard, Connoiseur, Cybersystem, Hypersonic, Malibal, Multirama, Rock, Evesham, Falcon Northwest, Plaisio, XS2, Nexoc, Hyrican, Vigor Gaming, Voodoo PC and others.
