    GeForce GTX 965M added to Nvidia mobile GPU lineup

    Based upon the same GM205 GPU as its bigger budget brothers, but on a 128-bit bus.

    Shouldn't that be GM204?

    It seems somewhat unusual that they'd use such a big core with so many cores disabled? I mean I understand the supply/demand thing, but we're looking at a ~half disabled die here! I wonder if this has something to do with yield? It would seem less likely on a very mature node, and the power characteristics of the other mobile bins seem fine. Maybe they just have a few iffy early batches, or are using it as a stopgap until the smaller dies make an appearance?

    So how does this compare to the 860M? I'm seeing this hitting the cheap, thin mid-level gaming department (Y50, etc).

    Sorry, updated to GM204 throughout article/subheading now. I'd variously written both GM204 and GM205.

    Given how awesome the 850M is, I'm sure this'll be a huge hit. (I can game quite happily at 1600x900 -- native resolution of my laptop -- with high settings without issue.)
