Default Nvidia Releases GeForce 8700M GT for Mobile Enthusiasts

Nvidia Corp., the top supplier of discrete graphics processors, has recently unveiled its new mobile graphics chip aimed at computer enthusiasts and high-performance laptops. The new GeForce 8700M GT is a pre-overclocked version of the GeForce 8600M GT, however, speed boost allowed Nvidia to place it into the enthusiast-class.<br><br>

Nvidia GeForce 8600M-/8700M-series graphics processors are based on the G84 graphics chips, which feature 32 stream processors, 16 texture modules, 8 raster operation units (ROPs) and 128-bit memory controller. The new GeForce 8700M GT graphics processor is clocked at 625MHz/1250MHz (base clock/shader clock) and is designed to feature 1600MHz memory, whereas its predecessor, GeForce 8600M GT featured 475MHz/950MHz clock-speeds for the chip and 1400MHz memory.

It seems it doesn't outperform the former high end card, the 7950Go GTX.
