NVIDIA users and fans are counting days as their #ultimatecountdown runs out with GeForce RTX 30 series launch waiting. In light of that, this particular release comes as an unexpected gift. Recent certifications, Supersonic power connector leaks have all been hinting at NVIDIA’s attempts to make the September event all about RTX 30. A twist in the tale is always welcome though. NVIDIA has introduced the new GeForce MX450, a rather unexpected guest in these days to the GeForce family. We are definitely not the complaining types, but why all this stealth NVIDIA?
The newest member to the MX family; GeForce MX450
There weren’t any formal press releases or announcements for the MX 450. A random knock at our doors to introduce us to an equally random addition. The MX lineup has catered mostly to the audience functioning on a restricted budget. A graphics card especially dedicated to thin and light laptops, MX has done enough to make the users move beyond Intel integrated graphics. The younger siblings to the MX450, all run on a Pascal core chip. NVIDIA is planning to bring the much-needed change by using the Turing chip with MX450. The MX450 would sell for another reason besides the chipset change. Arriving late to the party, NVIDIA MX 450 brings with it the first-in-class support for PCle 4.0. This also hints at the fact that since the Tiger Lake is based on similar configuration, MX450 could well be exclusive to it.
NVIDIA has always been a little shy when it comes to celebrating the MX series. This is probably because the market has crazy suitors for their GeForce RTX series, followed by the GTX. But then again, the MX lineup was never built with the intention to cater to high-end users. Nonetheless, the MX450 will result in increased respect and popularity for the MX lineup. Especially now that it has matched the A100 accelerator, Ampere GA100 GPU in terms of PCle 4.0 support.
