ASUS Teases Upcoming G Series Notebooks Powered by "Pascal" GPUs

ASUS teased an upcoming Republic of Gamers G-Series notebook. It didn't stop at the teaser pics, and went on to tease performance numbers of the untitled "GXXX" graphics processor at the heart of this beast. We'll go out on a limb here and guess that it's a new mobile GPU based on the "Pascal" architecture; more so because ASUS is claiming that it's faster than even the desktop GeForce GTX TITAN X, and has 3DMark 11 Performance-present score to show for that. ASUS plans to exhibit the notebook at the 2016 Computex; and it's becoming increasingly clear that the third GP104-based SKU promised for June 2016 could be a mobile chip after all.

To good to be true? This sounds like.

GTX 980M sounded too good to be true
And that graph with the offset is fu#$ing retarded.

Well, there are going to be mobile versions of GP104 eventually. But as usual these will be chips with way more aggressive boost than it's desktop counterparts, which increases the variance of the frame rate and thereby makes the average performance non-comparable.

Hey, they had last gen laptops with full GTX 980 in them ... given how efficient pascal is, why not

I see ASUS took "Deceptive Marketing 101" to heart.

No problem, just make it 10cm thick. :laugh:

I really dislike the lettering on the keyboard. Why does gaming have to = "agressive" and gaudy?

I would love to replace my against gaming laptop. Though I am hoping for a 1080-1440p 144hz laptop with G-Sync to last me a along time.

As someone mentioned here many months ago, people have short memories or something.

looks awesome....

I just got my 970M to stock 980M performance levels, and I can vouch for whoever said that the real life performance is not super smooth...

The Maxwell notebook GPUs bomb along in benchmarks but for whatever reason the games don't 'feel' smooth even when the boost is constant and the GPU is pushing 80+fps unless you enable VSync.

Maybe it's a sli setup...in any case this is going to be expensive as hell.

nah the way they tweaked the graph makes it look like its double the speed of the 980Ti, but its only a hair faster. Its probably the top of the line mobile pascal chip.

the far lower power usage is a laptop game changer big style.. keeping the older chips cool enough was the gaming laptop problem.. pascal seems to have neatly solved that problem..

we are talking roughly half the power usage and heat generation for the same performance.. exactly what laptops and small form factor boxes need.. pascal really will be a game changer..

Why not? MSI has their GT80S Titan with SLI GTX 980s. I'd not be surprised ASUS or MSI did the same with the new Pascal GPUs. I've been the fence about buying an MSI Titan, but I've been out off with the thought of lugging around a 22+ pound backpack.

what a deceptive graph. I've been so used to "honest" graph, that I got caught. Well, now laptop can reach high end gpu class performance, but the price/performance ratio is still gonna suck. External gpu solution are overpriced, and it's like 60% more expensive to tweak a gpu for a laptop.

Not quite.
The graph starts at 19800 so the part you have marked as 20000 is more like 200.
But having said that I still think the graph is bull$h!t.
At first glance I was like wow WTF that much gap between 980Ti and Titan X.
If someone just looks at the bars on the graph and not the numbers will think the 980Ti is garbage.

The graph is only misleading if you can't read. The label on the axis is plain to see. It's very common to start a graph off centre when the labels are high numbers.
All that said, not interested in gaming laptops.

This is what i call a good 3D Mark graph. Even without looking at the numbers, i can compare the performance of each cards accurately.

I quite agree. But the 0 axis origin is pretty much required given the score range is 18,000.

I know the bar is red :laugh: but the label says GXXX
