Nvidia GeForce GTX 10 for laptops: The same power for games and virtual reality

We knew there was not much for this and already here the new graphics Nvidia, contrived to get into tight spaces and portable will see in many places. Although I have ahead some things these last days, we now have all the important details about the so-called Geforce GTX 10.

In principle, there are three models with little to envy to the powerful desktop proposal. Yes, there is the important nuance in which Nvidia emphasizes: here there is no special designation for graphics notebook, or an “M” or a “Mobile” in the name. Santa Clara firm wants the call in the same way as they are practically the same thing.

These GeForce respond to the same name, and have the same specifications: GTX 1080, 1070 GTX and 1060 GTX. It is something I have spent many years trying to do and the current technology allows them to take the plunge. We can mainly blame Pascal and manufacturing technology, which is also capable of generating power 70% higher than the graphics Maxwell devised for laptop world.

Prepared for the game

Pascal is the main improvement that brings to notebook Nvidia with its 16nm manufacturing technology (FinFET) get better in space, and power consumption. We talk about a performance four times greater than the best console there now on the market, and players will get 30% more capacity than with an earlier model of Nvidia.

  • At the top of the range we have the GTX 1080 with 2,560 CUDA cores, a clock frequency of 1.733MHz, and the presence of GDDR5X first memory, as much as 8GB.
  • The next step is the GTX 1070 arrives to replace 980M. It has 2,048 CUDA cores and a clock frequency of 1.645MHz. This memory is also 8GB but GDDR5 type.
  • The smaller the GTX 1060, which replaces the 970M and has 1,280 CUDA cores and a speed of 1.670MHz. The RAM is 6GB of GDDR5 type.

Over time, we will see special configurations such as SLI or water-cooling. Factory over clock – is played with a 10% – will be possible in the 1080 GTX, and in a couple of months will reach the other two models.

A portable growing market needs the best

Nvidia has put the spotlight on a market that seems to exist but is there not generating much revenue and expanding market share. According to the data handled by the consulting firm DFC Intelligence, the portable gaming world is growing and there is an installed base of 20 million unit’s basis.

If we look at the home console, the difference is not great and that the starting prices of these gadgets yes it is: Xbox One has about 29 million consoles while PlayStation 4 goes above 50 million.

Virtual reality for laptops

Who says portable say those backpacks with hardware that are beginning to bloom, or what comes to mind. The point is that Nvidia has its GTX graphics 10 ready for the job (VR Ready).

The starting point for this possibility will be – more or less – $1300 for a laptop with the smallest GTX, but being able to develop and execute anywhere will help the launch of this technology trend.

In the event NVidia put to work an HTC Vive system with a notebook with the 1060 GTX option, running a simple game of boxing. Obviously, it gets better with the following steps power, but the show is on the table. Nvidia does not speak here of autonomy, prefers ensure performance with networked computers.

They do not lack support

The launch of these GTX 10 is very strong in support, not missing any of the usual manufacturers in the world ‘gaming’ which will solutions begin selling for $1300, and will not miss us see teams below $1000 matter of months.

Among the names that will have portable ‘Pascal’ are Lenovo, EVGA, Alienware, Asus, MSI, HP, Acer, or Razer. For them will be easy to create a team of 18 millimeters thick and 1.8 kilos, the style MacBook Pro, but with all the power of a GTX 10.
