Nvidia is a relatively durable company. Already from 1993 they operated and until now there have been a lot of graphics cards that they released. Like other durable companies, Nvidia must provide a series and explain every specification of every product they make.
Each VGA card has a prefix code that symbolizes the series and category. One of the codes they use is GT, GTX and MX. These two codes are very often found in Nvidia’s release products. The question is, What distinguishes GT, GTX and MX?
- Nvidia GT
The GT series can be regarded as a series devoted to the release of standard graphics cards from Nvidia. The Nvidia GT market target itself is those who only have minimal funds. Graphic enhancements offered are also not too significant.
Usually the GT Series is marketed for everyday use such as playing videos with high quality graphics.
Until now the GT series supports PCI-Express 2.0, a version of the computer expansion card. Besides this series is also supported by 128 Stream Processor. There are many more technologies available in Nvidia GT.
Although it is considered not too optimal, the Nvidia GT graphics card is still loved by many people. The main factor is of course the price. In addition, this series graphics card is also still strong in using medium class games. It also depends, because the GT Series also has a code number, each with different strengths.
In addition the GT series also has a single slot cooler, which allows it to use less electrical power than its predecessor. In addition, GT also outperformed its predecessor in terms of features offered, including the Nvidia PureVideo HD VP2 engine.
Although it is considered to have a graphic quality that is not too maximal, the GT series graphics card can still be used to play games with low end graphics quality. With its capabilities, the price offered by the GT series is also very cheap.
- Nvidia GTX
Now we will discuss the GTX series. The GTX series is intended for PC users who want the best performance on their computers. Nvidia GTX itself is a standard applied by Nvidia for the PC Gamer market.
The GTX series is also reliable for use in video editing with high image quality. Because yes, if it is intended for the gaming market, the VGA capability is also certain to be reliable for the editing process.
But of course, the price of the GTX Series tends to be more expensive than the GT Series. Because the features and performance offered are far better than the GT series with the same type of product.
It’s easy, actually, the concept of GT and GTX. The most striking difference lies in the letter “X” which indicates high performance and X-tra compared to the GT series. Currently the GTX Series is the highest line of Nvidia Graphics Card production due to its capable performance.
The standard GTX graphics card comes with GDDR3 RAM with a capacity of 768 MB. GPU GTX and GTS don’t have much difference. But unlike GTS, GTX does not eliminate parts of the GPU or reduce the size of RAM and bus width to cut production costs.
GTS has a GPU that is made with the biggest and fastest capability because it has 681 million transistors that are able to cover the surface of the dead screen.
Additionally GTX has 128 stream processors with a clock at 1.35GHz. In addition, GTX has a 575 MHz core clock and 384 bit GDDR3 memory. This means GTX has a bandwidth of 86.4 GB / s. GTX also can support HDCP (High Bandwidth Digital Content Protection). But unfortunately GTX still uses the old version of the Nvidia PureVideo processor so that it imposes a larger CPU.
- Nvidia MX
NVIDIA recently announced the presence of three of their latest entry-level Mobile GPUs. These three new GPUs are not products that carry the latest NVIDIA architecture, Pascal, but still carry the previous generation architecture, Maxwell. NVIDIA gave the names of the GeForce 920MX, 930MX, and 940MX for the three new GPUs.
In accordance with the code it carries, these three GPUs seem to be replacing three predecessors, the GeForce 920M, 930M and 940M. The performance of the three seems not to be far adrift when compared to its predecessor. However, for the GeForce 920MX and 930MX, they now support the use of 64-bit GDDR5, an increase compared to the GeForce 920M and 930M which only supports DDR3 only.
GeForce 920MX is said to be using 256 CUDA Core, with a clock up to 965 MHz. While the GeForce 930MX and 940 MX use 384 CUDA Core, with a clock up to 1006 MHz for 930MX and 1176 MHz for 940MX. These three new GPUs use GM108 bases.
Apparently, NVIDIA is preparing the three new GPUs to be the motors of various entry-level notebooks to the mid-end to come. Even though GPUs with the Pascal architecture are said to be coming soon, it could be that NVIDIA will only release high-end products first. The entry-level and mid-end markets will still be entrusted to some GPUs with Maxwell architecture.
