Far from GeForce RTX and other GTXs, there are the GeForce MX. These graphics cards signed Nvidia, cut for laptops, are jack-of-all-trades. The MX450 is the new spearhead of this range, it succeeds the MX350. It will not be available in the back-to-school machines; it is in the references of this fall and this winter that she will begin her career.
His areas of expertise are varied, as long as you don’t ask him the impossible. It can run a few games, help the processor with render calculations and encodings if you use software that allows it. Just like supporting him in the complex processing of digital photographs.
Few crisp details
The MX450 is compatible with GDDR5 and GDDR6 memory modules (against only GDDR5 modules for the current MX350) Nvidia leaves the possibility for integrators to choose between the generation but also the quantity they want to allocate to the chip (generally 2 to 4 GB of memory). It can communicate with the processor via a PCIe 3.0 or 4.0 link depending on the generation of the latter.
Nvidia does not provide any information on MX450 frequencies. Both on base speed and on GPU Boost, the MX450 supporting this technology. Strange.
When asked about this, the spokespersons told us that the frequency guidelines were only communicated to PC brands wishing to use the MX450 in their machines.
We will therefore have to wait to get our hands on or more models of machines to come this fall to get an idea of what this little chip has in the belly.
