    Re notebookcheck.net: According to our information it is just a renamed MX150 with maybe slightly increased clock speeds. Therefore, it is still based on the Pascal GP108 chip as the desktop GeForce GT 1030 with 384 shader cores and a 64 Bit memory bus. There will still be two versions, the normal 25 Watt version and a low power version with 10 Watt TDP and reduced performance.

    I have never liked MX versions of nvidia GPUs. Dislike began with geforce 4 MX because of their crippled perf.

    Well IMHO the MX150 is the best performance you can get on a thin ultrabook, while maintaining power consumption "low" (compared to AMD and other nVidia options), so for me the MX has been the best available option, not a crippled one. If anyone can tell me about a faster option for a 13-14 inch ultra-thin laptop that doesn't sound like a tornado and doesn't drain the battery in a blink of an eye... please be my guest.

    Edit: and no, 1050 MaxQ isn't an option its power consumption is much higher.

    I wouldn't mind a lower-clocked version for a device like the GPD WIN 3 or One Netbook etc.
