Nvidia GT 540M tested in Acer lappie

Written by Fudzilla staff

Unimpressive performance, but Optimus saves the day has put the new 15.6-inch Acer Aspire 5742G with Nvidia's GT 540M core through its paces with some interesting results.

The performance doesn't seem to be much better with 400M series parts. It is only marginally faster than its predecessors and it appears the 540M is merely a tuned up core. The GT 445M ends up a bit faster in some tests, so it appears that the GT 540M is the direct successor to the GT 435M.

However, despite an unimpressive performance gain, the 540M has an ace up its sleeve thanks to Nvidia's Optimus graphics switching technology. Optimus allows the new Aspire to power down the graphics core and squeeze out a bit more battery life. It also keeps the chassis cooler.

Addition of Optimus is nice. It's feature from witch every user benefits, but It's sad that NVidia don't put a lot of effort in mobile PC's market. I guess we won't see impressive mobile products from NVidia, until AMD apu's gonna hit the market. Then things will start to look interesting again!

you could very well just say that 540M is just another NV rebrand!!!

a Rebrand with higher clocks etc .
We all see AMD has not mislead most of the market , with "rebranded" chips being lower gen , and higher gen then the one they are replacing , means , a brand new design .
