Apparently, Nvidia GTX 980MX, 970MX Are Not Coming Ever
Only a couple of days ago we reported on renewed rumors regarding the alleged successors of Nvidia GTX 980M and 970M in the form of Nvidia GTX 980MX and 970MX. While that brought some excitement among the readers, a new rumor suggests that everything being said about the supposed new models is false.
The new rumor, that came out of Notebookcheck, suggests that Nvidia has altogether given up on the idea of updating the good graphics cards with these latest versions.
They are basing their story on alleged independent company insiders (more than one). In other words, GTX 970M or GTX 980M are not going to be updated at all.
However, the new rumors have reiterated that Pascal will be here by the end of 2016 or the start of 2017. Not only that, it is also alleged that rival AMD’s Polaris architecture will also be out by the second half of this year.
It looks like Nvidia has given up on the plans to update the graphics cards because of the timeline that is expected to be followed with Pascal, apart from the fact that they do not think that there is a serious need for them to bring an upgrade.
The last time we heard of Nvidia GTX 980MX and GTX 970MX was when it was claimed that both will be launched in the second half of this year. At the same time, specifications were also suggested for both the models which you can read up here.
