Nvidia GTX 10 Series Mobile GPUs to Launch At Gamescom; Specs Similar to Desktop Versions
Rumor has it that Nvidia is set to launch its GeForce GTX 10 series mobile graphics cards at the Gamescom event in Cologne this month.
The report comes from DigiTimes, according to which GPU vendors including ASUS, Gigabyte and MSI will all be there at the show to reveal their latest notebooks equipped with a variety of GPUs from the likes of the GeForce GTX 1080, GTX 1070, and GTX 1060.
If previous rumors are to be believed, Nvidia GTX 10 series mobile GPUs will have similar specs as their desktop counterparts. The only difference between GPUs for laptops and desktops, will be reduced core speeds in order to allow mobile variants to consume less power.
So we’re looking at nearly equal performance across the board, and to reflect this, Nvidia will allegedly no longer use the Mobile, or M, suffix to differentiate its desktop and notebook products.
That being said, if you’re looking to purchase a new gaming laptop, we would advise you to wait until Gamescom which takes place from August 17-21. If Pascal based mobile GPUs could actually deliver performance on par with their desktop variants, as Nvidia claims, it would be a big leap from the previous gen products.
There is no word on pricing yet, but they will likely follow a similar pricing structure to their desktop variants.
Will GeForce GTX 10 series mobile GPUs be powerful enough to offer performance equal to the desktop components? Let us know in the comments.
