NVIDIA released its newer lineup of notebook GPU solutions: 800M Series. The company promises that the newer notebook GPUs will provide more processing power while less power.




The lower-end note GPUs within this lineup are Maxwell based 830M and 840M, followed by Fermi architecture based 820. GTX 870M and 880M are based on Kepler architecture that is used in GeForce Titan Black desktop video cards. 850M and 860M are based on maxwell architecture.


NVIDIA also implemented few implementations for its notebook GPU emphasizing on gaming and lower power consumption during gaming.




NVIDIA implemented a feature called Batter Boost which activates itself whenever a game is running on the notebook. It enables users to lock to a particular frame rate. Once the setting is done, Battery Boost controls the notebook's CPU, GPU and memory systems to ensure the fixed frame rate is maintained by preventing components more power than its required.


Notebooks will also have ShadowPlay which allows gamers to record in-game gameplay without any performance impact and broadcast it via twitch.GameStream will allow gamers to stream their gameplay from their notebook to a GameStream compatible unit such as NVIDIA's own Shield.
