NVIDIA unleashes its first mobile Pascal GPUs

NVIDIA has somewhat surprisingly launched its first mobile GPUs, based on the latest Pascal architecture. They have been in the rumor mill for quite some time but now everything is official and there’s a ton of interesting news.

Just as expected we now get three models – the GeForce GTX 1080, the GeForce GTX 1070 and the GeForce GTX 1060 and again, just as expected, these mobile Pascal GPUs lack the “M” letter, which has been describing NVIDIA’s mobile GPUs for years. In addition these mobile GPUs are not cut-down versions of the desktop ones so mobile gamers are in for one hell of a treat!

The mobile GeForce GTX 1080 model is the big shark here so we will start with it. This GPU features 2560 CUDA cores and 8 GB of GDDR5X memory just like the desktop model. The GPU runs at 1556 MHz in nominal mode and at 1773 MHz in Turbo mode, while the memory runs at 10 000 MHz. This makes the mobile GTX 1080 an almost exact copy of the desktop video card and the most powerful mobile graphics card at the moment.

The mobile GTX 1070 comes second and comes with a surprise – the thing is that this GPU features more CUDA cores than its desktop counterpart. While the desktop GTX 1070 has 1920 stream processors, the mobile GTX 1070 has 2048. The GPU is accompanied by 8 GB of GDDR5 memory at 8000 MHz. The clock speed of the mobile GTX 1070 is 1442 MHz in normal mode and 1645 MHz in Turbo mode.

The mobile GTX 1060 has 1280 CUDA cores that work at 1404 MHz/1670 MHz and 3 GB or 6 GB of GDDR5 memory (depending on the version) that runs at 8000 MHz. This makes the new GTX 1060 as fast as the older mobile GTX 980 video card but the new GPU needs less power. Thus the GTX 1060 now turns even mid-range notebooks into gaming machines.

The first notebooks with the brand new mobile Pascal GPUs are out now.
