Nvidia to Launch Mobile Pascal Graphics for Notebooks At Computex 2016
Nvidia recently revealed the GTX 10-Series graphics cards based on their new Pascal architecture. Reviews of the flagship GTX 1080 have already hit the web, while the card is set to launch tomorrow, on May 27th. The mobile versions of these card haven’t yet officially announced, but a recent report claims that Pascal graphics for notebooks could launch next week at Computex 2016.
We haven’t had any details on the mobile Pascal graphics cards until last week when Asus teased its new liquid cooled laptops. Asus’ upcoming laptops are powered by a new Pascal based GPU, the GTX 1080M. The company also shared teaser benchmarks for the 1080M, which reveal the new GPU solution offering high performance that Nvidia’s desktop class GTX Titan X at TDPs that are suitable for mobile products.
The desktop GTX 1080 is up to 1.6 times faster than the previous gen GTX 980, and is also the first single graphics card that is capable of playing games at a 4K resolution. While mobile Pascal cards won’t be equivalent to their desktop counterparts in terms of performance, the gap continues to close with each generation. Hopes are high with the SLI-equipped Pascal notebooks which are expected to make fluid 4K gaming a reality.
Below are the rumored Pascal based GTX-class mobile graphics cards:
Top-end – GTX 1080M
Enthusiast – GTX 1070M
Mid-range – GTX 1060M
Entry-level – GTX 1050M
