NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10 Series Make Gaming Laptops As Powerful As Full-Blown Desktop PCs

NVIDIA showed three of its latest GeForce GTX 10 series on August 15. The GTX 1060, 1070 and 1080 are intended to make gaming laptops as powerful as the desktop PC.

The new GeForce series were designed based on NVIDIA's latest GPU, Pascal. The new architecture series are more powerful than its predecessors. The computer hardware company promised that the GeForce GTX 10 series will finally put the laptops on par or at least close to PCs when it comes to running games, according to PC World.

With respect to CUDA cores, the 1060 has 1280, while the 1070 has 2048 of them and the 1080 has 2,560. The GeForce GPU GTX 1060 has a GDDR5 of at least 6 GB while the GTX 1070 and 1080 both have 8 GB. Although, the 1080 has the GDDR5x and a clock speed of 1733 MHz while the 1060 and 1070 runs at 1,670 MHz and 1645 MHz, respectively. However, only the GTX 1070 and 1080 got SLI support.

The latest NVIDIA laptop GPUs have an expected performance speed that may be faster or slower than their desktop counterparts by a margin of 10 percent or less. The graphic card vendor said that the performance variance is due to the laptop's temperature output and design. NVIDIA assures, however, that GeForce GTX 10 GPU series can save up to 30 percent in battery usage.

Another feature that has excited many potential laptop GPU buyers is the vastly enhanced overclocking potential of the new GeForce GTX10 series. The new graphic cards can be overclocked by more than 300 MHz.

NVIDIA estimates that laptops carrying the GeForce GTX 1060 GPU may have a price tag below the $1300 range. This means buyers can soon afford a cheaper and light gaming laptop. The GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 will understandably be placed in bigger and more expensive laptops.

Meanwhile, NVIDIA also recently abandon its Shield Tablet upgrade this year to reportedly avoid any potential conflict of interest with the upcoming Nintendo NX release.
