In recent weeks, Nvidia has completed the renewal of its graphics cards for desktop PCs: from a few days the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 with 6GB of memory was added to the Pascal family, the GeForce 1080 GTX and GTX 1070. But how often have we accustomed to the company of Santa Clara, after thinking for desktop computers, it is time to devote to notebooks and especially to gamestation, that is, to those models that occupy the highest end of the market with top performance.
And according to rumors in the industry, the announcement will take place in August.
Nvidia is expected to release mobile versions of its GeForce 1080 GTX, GTX 1070, GeForce GTX 1060 and maybe even 1050 GTX Ti. The first leak the existence of these GPU (or a few) have already emerged recently, but today are joined by others: the GeForce 1080 GTX notebook should complement 2560 CUDA cores and GP104 (Pascal) with a 256-bit bus , 8GB of GDDR5 memory and TDP of 125W (180W instead of the desktop model), while the GeForce 1070 GTX still based mobile GP104 should have 2048 CUDA cores (+128 compared to the desktop version), 64 ROPs, 170 TMUs, bus 256-bit, 8GB of GDDR5 memory and TDP of around 85W (150W compared to the desktop version). The basic frequency of 1443 MHz, 1645 MHz touches one in Boost

The GeForce GTX 1060, which we have already discussed in the past, would instead be based on GP106 with 1280 CUDA cores, 192-bit bus, 6GB of GDDR5 memory and TDP of 65W. This GPU would lower base frequencies compared to the desktop version, namely: 1405/1671 MHz vs 1506/1709 MHz.
It seems clear that – for its mobile versions – Nvidia has worked on TDP trying to lower energy consumption in the hope of containing the heat generated by these components “load.” Do not forget, in fact, that these graphics cards are intended for gaming notebooks which – though larger and smaller than traditional laptops – have limited space and cooling systems are not always efficient.
Meanwhile we confirm that Santa Clara would choose to delete the letter “M” (which stands for mobile) by these GPU, presumably to convey the message that the GeForce 1080 GTX, 1070 GTX, GTX 1060 graphics will offer very similar experience to that of desktop versions, thanks to the architecture Pascal. We’ll see, the launch is very close
