NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M mobile GPU headed for CES 2011 reveal?

NVIDIA will apparently launch its GeForce GTX 5x0M mobile GPU – based on the company's upcoming GF114 chips – at CES 2011 in January, likely as the GTX 560M. According to Fudzilla's sources, the new GPU will have 384 shaders, together with 64 texture address units and 512 texture filtering units, and replace the GeForce GTX 460M (which has 336 shaders).

The notebook video chip has previously been referred to as the GTX 475, though it's expected that NVIDIA will look to brand it in line with its GeForce GTX 560 range of desktop video GPUs. According to a NVIDIA press release from last week, 200 new products using GeForce GPUs and Intel Sandy Bridge processors are expected in the first half of 2011; however it's unclear how many of those will use the new GTX 5x0 series chips rather than the existing GTX 4x0 range.
