Nvidia shows off new Pascal 10 series GPUs for laptops
Earlier this year, Nvidia showed off the first Pascal based card, the Nvidia GTX 1080 and soon after that, the company released cards like the GTX 1060 and also the ludicrous GTX Titan X (Pascal). But now, Nvidia is putting their focus on the mobile side of things and unlike previous years, Nvidia is changing the game this year by doing away with the mobile versions of their desktop counterparts.
Essentially what Nvidia is doing with this release of GPUs for laptops is to blur the line between desktop and laptops. This is all made possible with the Pascal architecture that is both power efficient and scalable. Nvidia claims that the performance difference between the desktop and laptop SKUs is at 10%
And just like the desktop Pascal offerings, the new GTX 10 series GPUs for laptops are named after their desktop counterparts. The specifications themselves are very similar to the full sized cards that go into gaming rigs and that means that for the GTX 1080, you'll also get that futuristic GDDR5X memory.
In terms of features, the GTX 10 series GPUs for laptops are VR ready and will support Nvidia technologies like G-Sync and Battery Boost. Laptops with these new GPUs from vendors like MSI, Asus and Razer are now available for purchase. Learn more about these new breed of laptop GPUs here
