NVIDIA announces GTX 1080, 1070, 1060 laptop GPU lineup
  • The latest range of 10-series GPUs close the gap between desktop and mobile class graphics

Earlier this weekend, NVIDIA announced the much awaited mobile versions of its 10 series GPUs. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080, 1070, 1060 are finally here for laptops and according the company, they will be able to close the performance gap between desktop class and mobile GPUs (see table below). NVIDIA is so confident about the performance of these laptop GPUs, that it has removed the "M" from the naming convention alltogether. Nvidia claims that the new GPUs are up to 75 percent faster compared to its Maxwell-based GPUs in 4K (GTX 980M, 970M and 960M respectively). This also means that all three newly announced GPUs will be able to handle 4K much better. Nvidia also claims that the all three GPUs can handle VR and will support NVIDIA’s VRWorks technology.

NVIDIA has also updated its battery boost technology, and with it the 10-Series laptop GPUs claim to provide 2x more battery life. This has also enabled NVIDIA to raise the overclocking overhead.
