The GeForce GTX 1080 is being touted as the king of all GPUs – built with ultra-fast FinFET and high-bandwidth GDDR5X technologies. This card is based on Pascal architecture and will be embedded in high-end notebooks and laptops. For the uninitiated, we’ll say this again – the GeForce GTX 1080 will be called just that – there’s no suffix ‘M’. So don’t expect to see ‘GTX 1080M’ or ‘GTX 1080 for notebooks’. Similar naming schema means the GeForce GTX 1080 mobile lineup should offer similar performance on both desktops and mobile.
Videocardz has posted the first pictures and benchmarks of GeForce GTX 1080. This card will provide significantly better performance (20% better) as compared to Titan X, which is based on Maxwell architecture.
Additional descriptions of the GTX 1080 –
As the description says, you can unleash gaming dominance with GTX 1080, which turns your mobile right into a power gaming weapon. The GTX 1080 gives you up to 3x performance of the previous generation graphics cards, at remarkable energy-efficiency and breakthrough VR immersive experience.
In the Furmark stress test, this card reaches 1594 MHz, with 85 C temperature. Notebooks are designed to operate under such high temperatures, so 85 C shouldn’t be a cause for concern.
Screenshots of two graphics cards Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Mobile connected in SLI mode appeared on Baidu, the “Chinese Google”, as reported by Pure PC. The shots are likely from the Clevo laptop P870DM3-G. The GeForce 1080 GTX Mobile GPU boost 3.0 mode is clocked at 1600 MHz.

The mobile GTX will have 2,580 CUDA cores, 64 rendering units and 180 texture units. The mobile versions are expected to have lower TDP, so the laptops equipped with GTX 1080 will draw lesser power as compared to previous generation notebooks.
