The Nvidia GTX 850M DDR3 is a 800 series midrange gaming GPU, based on the Nvidia Maxwell (I) architecture and the GM107 core and DDR3 VRAM. At its time, the GTX 850M DDR3 can be found in laptops for as low as $700-$800 (discounted) with a typical price of around $800-$1000. There is a second version of the GTX 850M with GDDR5 VRAM which delivers considerably higher performance. Both these GPUs were rebranded into the GTX 950M DDR3 and 950M GDDR5, only with an overclocked core.

Gaming performance is adequate medium-high graphics settings @ 1080p. Compared to the Pascal MX150, performance is about the same in heavy 3D games, with some exceptions. So, the GPU is not cost effective as of the release of the Pascal architecture (or later) and MX150 and GTX 1050 GPUs or later low midrange GPUs.

The DDR3 version, usually comes with 4GB VRAM, is more suitable for general 3D tasks, video/photo editing and such, and less for gaming purposes, since in some games the memory bandwidth will bottleneck, the core won’t be fully utilized and performance will be relatively low.
