NVIDIA rumored to launch GeForce GTX 1080M for notebooks at Computex

NVIDIA has been ramping up towards a big Computex 2016, but the news just got much more exciting, with rumors that the company will unleash its next-gen GeForce GTX 1080M graphics solution at the show. We already know that the GeForce GTX 1080 is the new king, but it looks like the GTX 1080M will be the new mobile king.




The GeForce GTX 1080M will reportedly be faster than the GTX Titan X, which sells for $999 and is a desktop video card, not a notebook solution. The new GTX 1080M has been spotted on the ASUS website, with the company teasing benchmarks for a gaming notebook that beats everything else on the market.


NVIDIA had a fantastic mobile solution with the desktop GTX 980 being unleashed into notebooks last year, but this new GTX 1080M is demolishing everything else in its path. It's faster than AMD's Radeon R9 Fury X, R9 295X2, and NVIDIA's own GeForce GTX 980 Ti and Titan X - oh, and I have mentioned already, it's a notebook part - not a desktop part, which makes it even more incredible. The GTX 1080M pushes a huge 20,811 in 3DMark 11, while the Titan X and R9 295X2 trail behind.


We should expect the full GTX 1080 to find its way into the GTX 1080M part, with 2560 CUDA cores, and GDDR5X memory. Thanks to the GTX 1080 not requiring much power at all, it makes sense that the mobile GTX 1080M part would be just as power efficient, maintaining its huge horsepower. NVIDIA has quite a lot going on during Computex 2016 this year, and you can be sure we'll be all over it when it takes place in just over a week from now!
