NVIDIA’s mobile Pascal GPUs scheduled for Gamescom

After the triumphant arrival of the new Pascal GPU generation in the form of three desktop video cards – the GeForce GTX 1080, the GeForce GTX 1070 and the GeForce GTX 1060 – now NVIDIA has to release their mobile equivalents. Despite being mentioned in the news a few times the new chips are still nowhere to be seen.

Well, we have some good news for all mobile gamers – the mobile GTX 1080, GTX 1070 and GTX 1060 video cards will likely be launched during Gamescom 2016. The game show takes place between August 17 and August 21 in Germany. According to the latest available information the “M” letter will no longer be used for NVIDIA’s mobile graphics cards. Furthermore the new Pascal mobile GPUs will be the same as the ones in the desktop versions, which will provide extra performance, compared to older NVIDIA mobile GPUs. The main difference will be in the clock speeds – the mobile Pascal chips will feature lower clock speeds to keep power consumption and heat dissipation levels low. Yet, in some cases they will have more stream processors to compensate the lower performance levels. Here are some preliminary tech specs of the mobile GTX 1070 video card – 2048 CUDA cores, GPU clocks of 1443 MHz (nominal) and 1645 MHz (Turbo), 8 GB of 8008 MHz GDDR5 memory and a 256-bit memory bus. As a comparison the desktop GTX 1070 has 1920 CUDA cores at 1506 MHz (nominal) and 1683 MHz (Turbo) and the same memory configuration. The mobile GTX 1060 will be an exact copy of the desktop GTX 1060 version, save for the clock speeds. The desktop GTX 1060 offers 1280 CUDA cores at 1506 MHz (nominal) and 1709 MHz (turbo), a 128-bit memory bus and 6 GB of GDDR5 memory at 8008 MHz, while the mobile GTX 1060 will run at 1405 MHz (nominal) and at 1671 MHz (Turbo). All other specs are the same.

Supposedly at Gamescom 2016 ASUS, MSI, Clevo and Gigabyte will become the first companies that have notebooks featuring the new mobile Pascal GPUs.
