    If your new Ultrabook sports this GPU it will be up to 25pc slower than a standard MX150.

    25% slower means your MX150 is equal to a 940MX:


    Only 25% slower for a 60% power reduction is pretty neat though. Does that mean that a 2.5x wider GPU could get 1.875x more performance (2.5x wider * 0.75x performance per core) in the same 25W power budget? That ought to nip at the heels of the intel/AMD G chips, but with less power use

    It appears the desktop will have a DDR4 version of the GT1030 too:

    Right now I have to wonder, if the answer is "DDR4 is cheaper" then just how bad is the question!

    It was only a matter of time though.

    Edit: I see part of the problem here is that MSI are using 2100MHz DDR4 so they are going *really* cheap.
