NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Mobile Detailed

Thanks to gains with performance/Watt, NVIDIA has been equipping the mobile variants of its GeForce GTX 10 Series SKUs with the same (or better) core-configurations as their desktop counterparts. The story continues with the upcoming GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Mobile. This chip is equipped with 768 CUDA cores, 48 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and 4 GB of GDDR5 memory across its 128-bit wide memory interface. What's more, it even has significantly higher clock speeds than its desktop counterpart. The GTX 1050 Ti Mobile is clocked at 1490 MHz core, 1624 MHz GPU Boost; while the desktop variant is clocked at 1290 MHz core with 1392 MHz GPU Boost.

With its given clock speeds, the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Mobile is expected to be faster than the performance-segment GeForce GTX 970M from the previous generation. 3DMark performance numbers put out by LaptopMedia point to the GTX 1050 Ti Mobile being about 10% faster than the GTX 970M at 3DMark Cloudgate (DirectX 10), about 7% faster at 3DMark FireStrike (DirectX 11), and about 9% faster at Unigine Heaven 4 (DirectX 11).

Looks like an amazing 1080P sweetspot GPU, and something i was waiting for in a long time.
This is "it" pretty much, the GPU that can make relatively thin 14"+ laptops be able to run 1080P games at very respectable settings.

Seeing how this chip is aimed to consume about 45-50W typical, this is awesome.

Yep, not surprised at all, the GP107 is looking to be very popular with Laptop OEM's.

1050ti is within 75w, so it can be fitted in a lot of laptops. Not surprised that no spec reduction was made.

Oooooh, Finally... a replacement for 960M !!

When 1060M was released I thought this the closer to a 960M replacement but it has a little higher TDP, and also most notebook which came with 960M and upgraded in the last month or two didn't have the 1060M...

And when 1050Ti was released I thought this is weaker than anticipated...

and Now it finally makes sense, a similar 1050Ti with higher clocks makes the perfect match for a 960M replacement... 970M was powerful compared to 960M but came with the expense of higher TDP and also costs more.. that's why it didn't find a way in many designs... 1050Ti M might be the way to go then...

I wonder how this will compete against RX 460M/470M

Well, 960M is basically a 750ti anyway, it never meant to be the laptop's version of GTX 960.
This generation is a massive improvement for nvidia laptop graphics imo. They use the same GPUs as their desktop counterparts.

If we're honest, any GPU with TDP over 75W is "unusable" in a laptop, it will make the computer very hot and sound like a turbofan engine. Even though laptops use cherry-picked GPUs with better thermals, any GPU >75W will run into throttling after a few minutes.

Pascal is >50% more energy efficient, and energy consumption is going to be the major limitation in any laptop configuration.

So is this soldered like gtx860m/gtx960m were? GTX 1060 already have soldered version and they are used in some 14"/13" ultrabook notebooks. But of course fewer watts means better thermals and battery life which are always welcomed on mobile side.

I love this new gen of GPU's. I just got a new laptop version of the 1070 and wow vs last generations 970m sli.
