Nvidia boosts GTX 965M mobile graphics

More than 21 per cent faster

The dark satanic rumour mill claims that Nvidia’s 2016 version of the GTX 965M mobile graphics chip will be 21 per cent faster.

According to Notebook the new GPU will arrive at some point during the first three months of 2016 and while were expecting it to be a Ti, apparently this moniker is not being used.

It all gets rather confusing because Nvidia has an unusual cunning plan of giving graphics chips with different performance specifications the same model name.

The new GTX 965M will boost the clock rate slightly to 935MHz a boost of 11MHz. The turbo speed will be upped from 950MHz to 1151MHz. With this increase, the new GTX 965M could achieve about 8400 points in 3DMark 11 and rank approximately midway between the current GTX 965M and the GTX 970M.

MSI and Gigabyte will release products for the mobile GPU first. This means that if you want a decent notebook with the 965M, it might be worth considering holding off until the spring.

Nvidia is apparently planning to launch the GTX 960 Ti soon which will help close a big gap between the 960 and the 970. It might be able to rival AMD’s new Radeon R9 380X which snuggly targeted that gap.
