NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M: Kepler Goes Mobile with Acer

Typically mobile graphics launches trail their desktop counterparts by a few months, as major GPU players like NVIDIA and AMD wring out power consumption and performance from their architectures in order to accommodate the tighter thermal and power budgets of notebook form factors. However, NVIDIA has obviously been refining their new Kepler GPU architecture into its various incarnations for while now, because the company is launching a dual salvo of production silicon for both mobile and desktop graphics markets today. Of course the company has significant motivation for this, with Intel's Ivy Bridge mobile platform just around the corner, which is backed with DX11 class integrated graphics.

The fact that NVIDIA is ready with both desktop and mobile variants, in and of itself, is fairly impressive but their mobile platform demonstration vehicle may also surprise you.

This is impressive we usually have at least a few months for a mobile system matching component series from either Nvidia and or AMD/ATI!
