NVIDIA rolled out a full lineup of GeForce GTX 10-series video card for laptops. This includes the GeForce GTX 1080, GTX 1070 and GTX 1060.
The specifications of these cards are very similar to the desktop counterparts, due to the high energy efficiency there's no longer a huge performance gap between desktops and laptops. For the GeForce GTX 1080 Mobile, the main difference is a 51MHz reduction in the base clock (the Boost clock is identical).
Curiously, the GeForce GTX 1070 Mobile has a GP104 GPU with 2048 CUDA cores, which is more than the 1920 CUDA cores activated on the GTX 1070 desktop card. The base clockspeed is 63MHz lower, and the Boost clockspeed was lowered by 38MHz.
Last we have the GeForce GTX 1060, this card has the same number of CUDA cores as the desktop part but a 101MHz lower base clock and 39MHz lower Boost. For all three products, the memory configuration and memory clockspeeds are identical to the desktop models.
Laptops with these new mobile video cards are available today from a wide variety of OEMs and system builders.
NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA) today introduced NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1080, 1070 and 1060 GPUs for notebooks, now available worldwide, providing gamers with a quantum leap forward in performance and power efficiency on the world's fastest-growing gaming platform.
Based on the NVIDIA Pascal™ GPU architecture, GTX-10 Series GPUs are manufactured on the leading-edge FinFET 16nm process, and have been crafted for performance and optimized for performance per watt. The award-winning Pascal architecture makes GTX 10-Series GPUs the ideal foundation for building notebook platforms that enable virtual reality to be experienced on the go.
Notebook manufacturers are using the GPUs inside potent portable gaming devices as thin as 18mm, as light as four pounds and equipped with cutting-edge technologies to deliver astounding performance at 120Hz and 4K gaming.
Amazing Performance, Exquisite Craftsmanship
NVIDIA Pascal-based GPUs represent the single largest generational performance jump in the history of gaming notebooks. Designs range from thin and light to desktop replacements. Performance for VR and PC gaming reaches levels never seen before in a mobile platform.
Compared with prior-generation Maxwell architecture-based GPUs, the new GTX 10-Series GPUs for notebooks deliver up to 75 percent more performance right out of the box. And with the Dual-FET power supply and multi-phased power controllers, they offer more than 3x the overclocking potential, for even faster performance.
New BATTERY BOOST Technology and G-SYNC Displays
The GTX 10-Series GPUs for notebooks also include support for the latest NVIDIA BATTERY BOOST™ technology, delivering up to 2x more battery life while gaming and ensuring significantly smoother gameplay when unplugged from the wall. And with NVIDIA G-SYNC™ technology, the best gaming displays are getting even better, marking the first time that 2500x1400 resolution and 120Hz displays are available in a notebook.
Bringing VRWorks and Ansel to Notebooks
Like all Pascal-based GPUs, the new GTX 10-Series GPUs for notebooks also support NVIDIA VRWorks™ technologies. This includes NVIDIA Simultaneous Multi-Projection technology, which can yield up to a 3x VR graphics performance improvement over previous-generation GPUs. This advancement allows notebook gamers to play VR games with higher levels of detail for a more realistic, immersive experience.
Simultaneous Multi-Projection technology is also being integrated into the world's biggest game engines, Unreal Engine and Unity. More than 30 games are already in development, including Unreal Tournament, Poolnation VR, Everest VR, Obduction, Adr1ft and Raw Data.
Also supported is NVIDIA Ansel technology, a powerful game-capture tool that allows gamers to explore, capture and share the artistry of gaming in ways never before possible. With Ansel, users can compose the gameplay shots they want, pointing the camera in any direction, from any vantage point within a gaming world. They can then capture 360° stereo photospheres for viewing with a VR headset or Google Cardboard. Mirror's Edge: Catalyst, Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and The Witness are the first games to ship with Ansel support, with more on the way soon.
Gaming notebooks equipped with the GTX 1080, GTX 1070 and GTX 1060 are now available from the world's leading notebook OEMs and system builders, including Acer, Alienware, ASUS, Clevo, EVGA, Gigabyte, HP, Lenovo, MSI, Origin, Razer, Sager and XMG. Features, pricing and availability will vary.
