    Nvidia adds GeForce MX230 and MX250 laptop GPU options

    The new Pascal-based MX250 GPU doesn't even seem to outpace the older MX150.

    So, as usual, we can't trust Nvidia to label their products in a coherent manner which allows consumers to make educated decisions without delving into obscure technical details (which of course everyone has the time, knowledge and understanding of PC bits and bats to do).

    At BEST this kind of strategy is misleading. At worst it's an outright con. Every bit of information they release is carefully considered at multiple levels within the company so it's usually not a mistake. Either way, if there's any confusion as to what I'm getting, I just go to the competition. It has happened before where a manufacturer has made it so confusing or difficult to ascertain what I'm paying my money for (or seemingly purposefully hidden an important specification) that I've just ruled out buying from them. That has happened with cameras, phones and a few other things.

    Just waiting on another Nvidia ARM chip myself. A tensor style chip for another mobile device... a new nv tv or switch. The switch won't happen but oh well

    But its look great in marketing material.
    For common buyer MX250 is better than MX150 and its nvidia so it is better than anything from AMD.
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    "It's Nvidia so it's better than anything from AMD".

    Hmm, I honestly can't tell if you're being serious or making fun of fan boys. As you are well aware, it all depends on the pricing and I'd rather have certainty in what I'm buying. A chip being 20% poorer in performance with exactly the same name is just not on. And the "common buyer" is exactly who is being taken advantage of here as they're not going to know this kind of thing is going on.
