Yes, you heard that right, NVIDIA has announced a new addition to the MX series of GPUs designed for laptop use, the GeForce MX450 that runs on PCIe 4.0 for the very first time.

According to Team Green, ultraportable laptops equipped with the MX450 will start popping up and out into the market starting October through the announcement of various laptop OEM partners. Aside from the main highlight, it will be fitted with GDDR6 memory for faster accessing and processing for any graphical-driven tasks such as photo and video editing, gaming, or video media consumption.

As the same for all notebook-focused balance between power and performance, the NVIDIA Optimus optimization will ensure the GPU to keep its power in check and not overperforming due to the theoretical performance of PCIe 4.0.

Even though it is a bit of a bummer that it is not the RTX 3000 series that gets the reveal on possible PCIe 4.0 support, but hey at least that means Ryzen laptops could see a bump in performance without too much of a price increase, and that’s pretty good to me.
