Nvidia Pascal GTX 1080M Mobility GPU Beats GTX Titan X In 3D Mark 11
Asus recently teased its new liquid cooled laptops powered by a new Pascal based GPU, allegedly called the GTX 1080M. According to benchmarks shared by Asus, the new GPU solution offers higher performance than Nvidia’s GTX Titan X at TDPs that are suitable for mobile products. In other words, the GPU is designed to deliver a desktop class performance in what is called to be a mobile form factor.
In an official blog post titled, THE FUTURE OF ULTIMATE GAMING LAPTOPS – A GLIMPSE, Asus said:
What we can say is that one of the highlights from the lab is an overclockable gaming laptop that will rival even gaming desktops. We were told it is a concept machine and thus they are still in the process of making it even more powerful.
The exclusive info about to be revealed is without overclocking but is already faster than any laptop on the planet (not including alternate futures or dimensions). Without overclocking this beast can score almost 21K (Performance) in 3DMark11, edging out even the mighty GTX Titan X in this benchmark!
The GTX 1080M manages to achieves a huge 3D Mark 11 score of 20811 points, and beats both the desktop Radeon R9 295X2 and GTX TITAN-X, although it’s faster than the latter by a small margin. But, considering the chip is designed for the mobile platform, the results are just incredible!
What’s more interesting is that this score by Pascal GP104 (Mobile) was achieved without overclocking. The full blown desktop variant of the GP104 features 2560 CUDA cores and GDDR5X memory. It remains to be seen what core count the mobile variant will have, but it’s unlikely that it would use the GDDR5X memory, but GDDR5 instead. The memory is rumored to be clocked at 2000 MHz (8 GHz effective).
According to Asus, more details on Pascal GTX 1080M powered laptops will be provided at Computex 2016.
