NVIDIA Appears to be working on GeForce MX550 GPU


The GeForce MX550, based on NVIDIA’s Ampere architecture, could be the company’s next entry-level discrete GPU for laptops. If that will be the case, the MX550 will succeed the Turing-based MX450. The latter has been around for a while.

ITHome discovered the NVIDIA GeForce MX550 in the Geekbench database. While the codename for the chip has yet to be confirmed because it hasn’t been disclosed; the source speculates that this could be a new MX chip for the entry-level laptop graphics segment. The GPU has 16 SM units for a total of 128 CUDA cores. It also features 2 GB of GDDR6 memory that runs at roughly 10-12 Gbps. Like its predecessors, the device is likely to include a 64-bit bus interface, resulting in a total bandwidth of 80 – 96 GB/s, which should suffice for an entry-level CPU.

What’s more, The GPU was discovered in a Lenovo laptop with an Intel Core i7-1260P Alder Lake processor. In a 4+8 arrangement, this chip has 12 cores and 16 threads. That’s 4 Gracemont (P-Cores) and 8 Golden Cove (P-Cores) (E-Cores). The processor was clocked at 2.5 GHz base and 4.6 GHz boost, but we don’t know if these are the final clock rates. Other features include an L3 cache of 18 MB and 16 GB of system memory. The Core i7-1260P belongs to the U28 series, which is a step down from the H35 and H45 series, which are designed for high-performance notebooks.
