NVidia silently launches GeForce 405M
NVidia has silently launched a new entry level mobile GPU, GeForce 405M. With 16 CUDA cores and a shader processor clocked at 1212 MHz, this is currently the slowest GPU in the company's mobile line-up, and is presumably therefore also the product with the lowest power consumption.
The GPU uses up to 512 MB DDR3 memory, on a 64-bit bus, at 800 MHz (1.6 GHz effective). NVidia didn't publish how many TMU or ROPs there are, but looking at specs for other cards it looks likely that there will be 2 TMU and 4 ROPs. This would make the chip ideal for a cheap entry level system or perhaps a low power device, but don't expect to do any gaming on it.
