The Nvidia GeForce MX150 is a dedicated entry-level mobile graphics card for laptops. When it was launched with the first laptop that featured it back in late 2017, it came to replace the old GeForce 940MX, with the company claiming it was 25% more powerful than its predecessor overall. Nvidia also claimed it run 4x the power of integrated Intel HD graphics card that are baked in the laptop’s processor. The MX150 is a very popular graphics card for budget laptops, and also high end ultrabooks.

While MX150 laptops can allow you to play at 60fps and FullHD resolution a few famous eSports titles, such as LoL, CS:GO, Dota 2 and World of Tanks, don’t expect any miracles for the latest titles or any demanding AAA games. So, you’ve been warned; the MX150 is not a high-end GPU for the power user.

Although if you’re looking for a laptop with something more than an integrated Intel HD GPU, that is notably not an option to consider for the casual gamer or photo editor, going for a laptop that features an Nvidia GeForce MX150 might be your best choice if you’re on a relatively tight budget.

Along with its affordable price, the MX150 comes with a dedicated Nvidia GeForce Experience software, that’ll do the hard work for you to decide which graphic settings you’ll be running at on a set of supported games. While it’s not designed to fluidly run the latest and more GPU demanding AAA games, with the MX150 you’ll still be technically able to play some of your favorite titles if you dial down your settings low to mid and lower the resolution as well.

Compared to the last-generation of Intel UHD 620 integrated graphics card, the Nvidia GeForce MX150 will also enhance your photo and video editing experience to a decent level, running some modeling and designing software like SketchUp and Adobe Photoshop pretty smoothly.

There are currently two variants of the Nvidia GeForce MX150 available: a “normal” one, the N17S-G1-A1, and a more power efficient one, the N17S-LG-A1, which is designed for thinner, light weight laptops. The power efficient variant has a slightly lower performance than the normal one, due to its 32% lower boost clock, so you might want to check that spec out before purchasing your new laptop.

Now that you have an idea about the capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce MX150,  here are 5 of the best laptops with MX150 that we’ve reviewed for you. We will be adding more MX150 laptops soon!
