Leaked specs and benchmark suggest that Nvidia's Geforce GTX 1070 mobile is even more powerful than the desktop version.

University Herald reports that Nvidia is planning to release the Geforce GTX 1070 M series after recently unveiling the GeForce GTX 1070 desktop version. Before the official launch of the new GTX 1070 M series some leaks of its benchmark showed very impressive results. 

A source leaked previously the mobile GTX 1070's performance and revealed that the GPU has more CUDA cores and packs more power than its desktop variant. With the source displaying the gaming results as well, the mobile GTX 1070 performance leaks seem to be convincing enough.

While more transistors can fit, Nvidia's Pascal architecture lets the system to be energy-efficient. GTX 1070 desktop variant has been quite an upgrade from its predecessor GTX 970 and it is crammed with 1,920 CUDA cores for heavy duty needs. With its 8GB of GDDR5 memory, the desktop variant also received an improvement in VRAM.

Different sources seem to confirm that the mobile GTX 1070 has a better performance than the desktop version. For instance, in a screenshot published only by Videocardz we can see the Geforce GTX 1070 M series graphics card inside a laptop along with details of its benchmark.

The mobile 1070 card runs on a 8 GHz memory clock and features 8 GB GDDR5 RAM. The data communicates on a 256-bit bus. With its 2048 CUDA cores, Nvidia's M series Geforce GTX 1070 gets more cores that the desktop variant.

A leak from Baidu states that the Nvidia Geforce GTX 1070 M series is 355 percent faster than GTX 960 M. Fudzilla explains that the GTX 1070 mobile is clocked lower in order to make it power-efficient.

According to PC Gamer, the mobile Pascal technology comes in a standard MXM form-factor. In leaked images, it appears to have a connector added to draw additional power as well as a 4+2 power phase design. According to tech experts, this means that the M series 1070 is probably pulling more than 100W.

Tech analysts expect that Nvidia will unveil the GeForce GTX 1070 M series on August 17, at the Gamescom 2016 event.
