Nvidia expected to announced Pascal GPUs for notebooks at Gamescom. This from DigiTimes Monica Chen.
Nvidia's Pascal-based discrete graphics cards for notebooks are expected to be unveiled during Gamescom in Europe, hosted from August 17-21, and notebook players including Asustek Computer, Micro-Star International (MSI), Gigabyte Technology and Clevo will showcase their latest products using the GPUs.
Since Europe is a major market for gaming PC products and the number of gamers in the region has been rising rapidly, many gaming PC vendors have been expanding their reach into Europe's channel and have been sponsoring e-sport teams from the region.
Nvidia will no longer use the letter M to differentiate its desktop and notebook products and is now using the same names for both product lines. For Gamescom, Nvidia will unveil its GeForce GTX 1080/1070/1060-series GPUs for notebooks.
With the unification of product names, Nvidia's desktop and notebook GPUs with the same name will have equal performance. In the past, Nvidia's notebook graphics cards typically had weaker performance than their desktop counterparts.
With the releases of the new GPUs, gaming notebooks with existing 980M/970M/960M GPUs are expected to receive price cuts.
