Nvidia adds Linux driver for RTX 2050, MX570 and MX550

In December last year, Nvidia released three entry-level GPUs for the mobile market, the GeForce RTX 2050, GeForce MX570, and GeForce MX550. The first two use the GA107 core, which is the same as the GeForce RTX 3050 mobile GPU, and the GeForce MX550 is a Turing architecture chip.

Nvidia recently released a Linux driver (470.103.01) for GeForce RTX 2050, GeForce MX570, and GeForce MX550, in order to provide better platform compatibility and applicability, it also means that the new GPU is about to land in the entry-level notebook market. According to plans announced by Nvidia, consumers will see laptops with these GPUs this spring.

Recently, some netizens discovered the benchmark test results of the first GeForce MX550. The information shows that the GeForce MX550 supports Resizable BAR and Nvidia Optimus, but does not support the latest technologies such as Advanced Optimu and ray tracing. In the PassMark test, the GeForce MX550 scored 35% higher than the GeForce MX450 and 26% higher than AMD’s Radeon RX 5500M, which is basically the same as the Ryzen 9 5900HS.

According to NVIDIA, the GeForce RTX 2050 has 2048 CUDA cores, the acceleration frequency can be set between 1155-1477MHz, the TGP range is 30-45W, the memory bit width is only 64 bits, and it is equipped with 4GB of GDDR6 memory with a rate of 14Gbps. Nvidia has not yet given the specific specifications of GeForce MX570 and GeForce MX550, but only know that both use GDDR6 memory, GeForce MX570 should be GA107, GeForce MX550 may be TU117 or TU116, because the positioning is only higher than the general set display, its performance does not need to be too high expectations.
