NVIDIA GeForce 10-Series Pascal Mobility GPUs Launching This Month

In just a few weeks at Gamescom 2016 (August 17-21), NVIDIA will be launching their Pascal Mobility lineup. This lineup will consist of the GeForce GTX 1080M, GTX 1070M, and GTX 1060M. These new models will effectively replace the older 9 series models currently out on the market. This entire lineup is based on the Pascal 16nm architecture, so expect great performance and power efficiency.

Right now we do not know the specifics of the flagship GTX 1080M, but according to leaks we do know that the GTX 1070M is going to have 2048 CUDA Cores and will be clocked at a boost clock of 1645 Mhz whereas the GTX 1060M will have 1280 CUDA Cores and will be clocked at 1671 Mhz (GPU Boost). Based on this we can say that the GTX 1080M should be capable of 4K gaming, the GTX 1070M will be capable of beyond 1080p gaming and VR, and the GTX 1060M should be perfectly capable of full HD (1920×1080) gaming without consuming too much power.

There has already been a performance leak showing the GTX 1080M against a few desktop cards. It is faster than a GTX Titan X (Maxwell), which is quite impressive to have that much power in a laptop!

Expect more on the Pascal Mobility series chips as we get closer to Gamescom.
