DigiTimes informs us that NVIDIA is planning to reveal its Pascal laptop GPUs at the Gamescom expo in Cologne. This will include the GeForce GTX 1060/1070/1080 video cards, as NVIDIA no longer uses the letter M to differentiate its notebook graphics offerings. One of the reasons for this is because the performance gap between the desktop and laptop parts is much smaller than it used to be.
Nvidia's Pascal-based discrete graphics cards for notebooks are expected to be unveiled during Gamescom in Europe, hosted from August 17-21, and notebook players including Asustek Computer, Micro-Star International (MSI), Gigabyte Technology and Clevo will showcase their latest products using the GPUs.
Since Europe is a major market for gaming PC products and the number of gamers in the region has been rising rapidly, many gaming PC vendors have been expanding their reach into Europe's channel and have been sponsoring e-sport teams from the region.
