Testing the new Nvidia MX150, Are the Reviews Correct?

The new Nvidia GT 1030m chip is putting high-end chips like GTX 860 and GTX 950 to shame. It is a dedicated entry level card that is based on the GP108 Chip. MX150 (GT 1030m) features Pascal Architecture which is the mobile version of GT 1030 (Desktop).  We are going to find whether the reviews are doing it a justice or not?

This entry level card is capable of playing recent Triple A games at medium to high settings. It can handle demanding titles such as The Witcher 3, Battlefield 1, and Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor at medium settings. This is very impressive for an entry level gpu.

The performance is better than what was expected. It was first announced in HP Envy 13, and it acts at the successor of older Maxwell lineup. The Maxwell was based on Geforce 940MX which lags pretty far behind the new Pascal.

The Difference

Results are clear, the mx150 is far better than 940MX. You don’t have to take our word for it, feel free to check other reviews and what the final numbers are saying.

The new 1030 based on new architecture leaves older GTX 950 far behind in terms of performance. This speaks up for the new architecture and how it packs a lot of power just in an entry based graphics card, not the higher ones.  The newer models are using a small 23x23mm package thanks to small chip size. this reduces the power consumption while boosting the overall gpu performance.
