NVIDIA To Launch New GTX 1070, GTX 1080 GPUs on the Mobile Market

NVIDIA is apparently working on some new iterations of the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 GPUs for the mobile market. These new parts should come with lower clocks than the parts that are currently on the market, as a means for system builders to be able to reduce the profile and overall thickness of their laptops whilst still being able to keep a powerful graphics card at their heart.

The new GTX 1080 is the chip more details are floating about, with some captures from NotebookCheck showing all 2560 CUDA cores enabled, but lower clocks making up a much restrained power consumption. The 1290 MHz base clock (with an unknown boost value as of this point) points to a power consumption of just 110 W (compared to 165 W on the 1556 MHz base-clock GTX 1080; the new GTX 1070 should feature a TDP of 90 W compared to its previous 120 W fully-powered variant.) This naturally means a slower GPU - the new, revised GTX 1080 scored 17000 points on 3D Mark whereas usual implementations of the card score on the vicinity of 21,000. The change in power envelope, however, would enable new notebooks, such as the showcased Acer Predator 700, to deliver more performance than some of last gen's comparable thickness laptops. Its GTX 1080-powered 18.9 mm thickness in the leaked images allows for 600 points more than some previous-generation, 29 mm laptops.

Cool....:cool: But in these thinner laptops...Is it?..:rolleyes:

:ohwell:
I won't be buying one..

Incredible. I wonder how hot they can get under general use?

Kind of defeats the purpose of reducing power consumption and therefore temperatures if they are going to slap them in thinner laptops.
The only real improvement would be seen in traditional gaming laptops.

I'd say the improvement is the same temperature, but in a smaller laptop. All the same to me, I'm not using a laptop for any serious 3D work.

as someone who travels a lot and loved to have a fast laptop and biggest grip is no gaming laptop folds into tablet or tent...having a laptop fold so the screen is closer on a plane or train or desk is a god send. It basically doubles the screen size by making it 1-2 feet closer and if you have an external keyboard its awesome for traveling internationally but no gaming laptops fold TT and thats a deal breaker for me :/

I watch more than game when i travel but not having a gaming laptop sucks but loosing folding option is worse overall....why can't we have both!

If you have internationally traveled for 4+ weeks you would understand how useful a folding laptop is :/

that is really nice, the power efficiency of the pascal architecture does lend itself to a mobile from factor.

Last time i remember the mobile and desktop solutions using the same chips was with the G7x (7000 series) from Nv, nice to see them bring gaming power to the laptop.

they started using desktop cards since maxwell...took way too long.

Hoping when HBM comes out we an get bigger cards because the main issue is the size of the MXM card is beyond standard size due to RAM.
