As far as we know the GeForce GTX 1050 for notebooks has not been officially announced by NVIDIA, but the other day Dell posted the specifications of a new XPS 15 laptop (9560). These specifications have since been removed from the website, but the copy read as follows: The most powerful XPS laptop we’ve ever built includes the latest 7th Gen Intel® Quad Core™ processors and an optional 4GB GeForce® GTX 1050 graphics card with the latest and greatest Pascal™ architecture, so you can blaze through your most intensive tasks.
Obviously since the copy was taken down we think this was an oops by Dell, but it makes us believe that NVIDIA will indeed be launching the GTX 1050 for notebooks at CES in January. If this is the case we should see a plethora of new laptops with the GTX 1050 mobile inside.
For those wondering the new Dell XPS 15 features 15 inch Ultra HD (3840×2160) screen, Kaby Lake CPU (i3-7100HQ, i5-7300HQ or i7-7700HQ) and GeForce GTX 1050 with up to 4GB VRAM.
