NVIDIA has distilled their Pascal architecture to the entry level GT 1030 aka the MX 150 claiming a sizable performance increase over the previous generation. We do a short comparison by pitting the MX150 against the previous generation Maxwell-based 940MX to see how the new chip benefits entry-level gamers.

gtx 950m with reduced memory and power consumption, I imagine.

in shader performance, yes. However, the MX150 has 70% of the bandwidth of the GD5 950M. That's going to be a major bottleneck even with Pascal's memory efficiency tweaks.

That's the reason NVIDIA is pegging this is a successor to the 940MX and not anything above it. But the 950M supports DX12 only till FL11. That can be a deterrent if you want to use some of the more advanced DX12_1 features, although admittedly many games still based on FL11.

The Xiaomi Mi air 13 also gives an okay insight to these GPUs. as last years gen Skylake vesion got 940MX 1GB and this years Kabylake got MX150 2GB DDR5.

but you likely dont got both  of these to compare.(at least you got one of them, i noticed you review it a while back, and allways a felling of "damn the level to detail and values, are just outstanding and best in class here, and this site is my go too site when trying to get insight on a item, your covering.. huge thumps us to the guys making this site top of the class and so god damn informative.
.
judging on benchmarks on 940MX 1GB and MX150 2GB DDR5. on Xiaomi air 13.
there seems to be around +35% gain in scores, on Geekbench4 OPenCL compu'scores...
the old Mi air i13 Skylakei5/940MX I get around 29.500 natively on 940MX with 1GB DDR5 and the newer MX150 with 2GB DDR5 comes in around 39.800.

The highest i can cramp out of the old fellow 940MX with merely 1GB Vram, is 34.622 . (from today)
https://browser.geekbench.com/v4/compute/1039916
 and that is with Afterburner and underclock, where i can optain a 17.5% gain from native GPU values.

Here is the scores from Firestrike 2234 and Cloud gate 8044 and Skydiver 7339 all MI air 13  Skylake i5 8GB DDR4, 940MX 1GB DDR5 NVMe drive PM961 256gb (not that shabby from an old player like 940MX wih merely 1GB Vram, )

the Mi air 13 model with Kaby lake and MX150 2GB seems to land around 2550 firestrike, and around 8000 in skydiver. (but all basic clock settings, so in my view it seems like Xiaomi have turned down the MX150 quite a bit on the Mi air13 kaby/MX150, and there should be room for improved scores. + 15 to 20% higher.

Thanks for the positive feedback, Jakob. Yeah the Mi Air 13 could have room for performance increments. The fact that OEMs are able to tune down the GPU should strike a balance between GPU performance and battery life.

How much of a difference in price would be considered a good deal enough to settle for the 940mx
Please help I am currently buying a laptop and I saw some have the 940mx and some have 150 but are priced the same

Thank you
