Line includes mainstream and performance parts

NVIDIA is a staple at CES each year and it often uses the show to unveil hew GPUs and other gear that will be used in computers and in other platforms in the coming year.  NVIDIA has unveiled a new line of GPUs at the show that will be the graphics muscle behind some of the best performing notebooks on the market in 2011.

The new GPUs are the GeForce 500M GPU family. The new GPUs in the line include the GT 540M, the GT 550M, and the GT 555M. All of them offer at least four times the performance of integrated GPUs and two times the DirectX 11 performance of competing GPUs. The 520M and 525M are the two mainstream parts in the new line. The new GPUs also support Optimus technology for longer battery life by switching between the integrated GPU and the discrete GPU.

"GeForce GT 500M GPUs combined with Optimus technology enable the most versatile laptops ever created," said Rene Haas, general manager of notebook business at NVIDIA. "Pairing a great GPU with a strong CPU delivers Optimized notebook performance for consumers."

The new GPU line supports NVIDIA 3D Vision, PhysX, CUDA, and uses the NVIDIA Verde notebook drivers and they support NVIDIA 3DTV Play to deliver content from the PC to 3D TVs in the living room.

The GPUs will be used in machines from just about every major computer maker on the planet including Acer, MSI, Alienware, ASUS, Clevo, Dell, and many others. NVIDIA has already announced that it will be working with Tesla to power infotainment systems in the Model S.

They'll probably release a newer 500 high end laptop chip and they don't want the 485M one to be in the middle of things.
