NVIDIA Optimus Power Saving Technology Coming Out For Mobile GPU UsersTue, Jan 05, 2010 - 12:24 PM
In a Tuesday morning blog post, Nvidia’s Rene Haas introduced a power-management technology that the company will be adding to its mobile graphics chipsets later in the first quarter. Dubbed “Optimus,” the technology appears to preserve the performance of discrete graphics while power-managing the chipset for longer battery life. We thought notebooks already had dynamic features like this built-in, so time will tell if this is a new technology or a fancy new name for something that has been around for years.
As we approach CES we wanted to tell you about an upcoming mobile technology that we will be introducing in Q1. It is called NVIDIA Optimus technology. NVIDIA Optimus technology works on notebook platforms with NVIDIA GPUs. It is unique to NVIDIA. It is seamless and transparent to the user. Its purpose is to optimize the mobile experience by letting the user get the performance of discrete graphics from a notebook while still delivering great battery life. Look for more details next month.
