Sounds like an implementation of their q-max line which is supposed to offer super high end (GTX1080) in a lower power / form factor too. That was supposed to launch today as far as I know, but I don't know where to find them.

MX150 uses GP108. (ie, the same die GT 1030 uses)

I thought it was a slower (if that's even possible) Geforce 2 MX 200;

is the Quadro P600 also using GP108? because it has 128bit memory bus with 384SPs, I thought GP108 was 64bit only, so is the MX150 using 64bits or 128bits?

More like my style: traditional 15.6-in. I asked a month too early.
Product listing (search the comments): http://www.microcenter.com/product/481303/Aspire_5_A515-51G-52R1_156

Here's a review of the Swift 3 with the MX150 by the way

And one of the Aspire 5, though he only got the IGP version

http://www.ultrabookreview.com/15876-acer-aspire-5-a515-51-review/

Looks like the MX150 is indeed almost twice as fast in the same wattage as the 940M! Given that the Iris 650 was about the same performance as the 940, Intel has its work cut out if its IGPs are going to compete in this tier at all, especially as small systems like the Xiaomi Mi 13 can pack the MX150.

Personally I hope the rMBP 13 would get the MX150, it's crazy that a low end part like that is near their top end Radeon Pro 560 in the 15"s (and beats the 2016 entry level 15" rMBP RP 460).

anyone knows if it supports shadowplay and the nvidia hardware video enconder in general? or is it like the GT 1030 (no support)?

No Shadowplay.


Also, this makes things a bit awkward for the 15" rMBP, eh. But man do I want it in the 13".

Driver updated to 385.28 WHQL which now properly supports MX150 in the Mi Notebook Air 13 2017 and retested.
