NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1060 offers gamers a really sweet spot at only $249 for the desktop card. Well expect to see the GTX 1060 in new laptops as well, and according to reports it is going to be the full card, just with reduced clock speeds! Take a look at the leaked GPU-Z screenshot of a laptop running a GeForce GTX 1060.
As you can see this is not a cut-down version of the GP106 GPU. It features the same 6GB GDDR5 memory with 192-bit memory bus as well as the same ROP, TMU, and shader count. The only difference we see is the reduced clock speeds. The desktop version of the card has a core clock of 1506 MHz and boosts up to 1709 MHz. The mobile version however will have reduced clocks of 1405 MHz core and a GPU boost of 1671 MHz.
The guys over at PurePC, who had access to this laptop with the mobile GTX 1060 also ran it through 3DMark Fire Strike. The PC was equipped with a Intel Core i7-6700K, GeForce 1060 GTX (mobile) and 16 GB of RAM close close to 10,300 points. This score is almost identical to laptops with the GeForce GTX 980 on board!
Expect laptops with the GeForce GTX 1060 inside to be released very soon!
