    NVIDIA have announced a brand new GeForce 400M series of GPUs for notebooks, claiming to offer a whopping 40% performance boost over the previous 300M series of GPUs.

    The NVIDIA GeForce 400M GPUs includes:
    • For enthusiast users: GeForce GTX 470M and GTX 460M
    • For performance users: GeForce GT 445M, GT 435M, GT 425M, GT 420M and GT 415M
    The GeForce 400M GPUs will feature NVIDIA Optimus technology, a power-saving technique that automatically turns off the GPU when not needed, extending the battery life of a netbook. GeForce 400M has been designed from the ground-up for DirectX 11, as well as supporting NVIDIA 3D Vision, PhysX™, CUDA™ and NVIDIA 3DTV Play™.

    Expect to see GeForce 400M enabled notebooks from Acer, Asus, Dell, Lenovo, Samsung, and Toshiba appearing in time for this Christmas.
