NVIDIA plans GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1060 cards for notebooks

During the past few weeks there were some online rumors that NVIDIA was going to change the naming scheme of its mobile GPUs. Thus new mobile GPUs from the “green” company would drop the “M” letter in their names, which denoted their mission – to work in notebooks.

It turns out that the rumors were correct. NVIDIA will soon retire the GeForce GTX 950M and GTX 960M and will replace them with two new mobile graphics cards that will be known as GeForce GTX 1050 Ti and GeForce GTX 1060. The problem with the new naming scheme is that users will be confused – they will not know if a GeForce GTX 1060 video card is a mobile or desktop GPU, for instance. But then again NVIDIA wants to offer 3D notebook performance that is close, if not equal, to the performance seen from desktop GPUs so there’s some sense in this move.

The GTX 1050 Ti is expected to come with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory and a 128-bit memory bus, while the GTX 1060 will feature 6 GB of GDDR5 memory and a 192-bit memory bus. Sadly, these are all the known details as of now.

The two new mobile graphics cards on the Pascal architecture will arrive in August of this year with August 1 being a great candidate for the launch event.
