New reports have revealed that NVIDIA is preparing to unveil its forthcoming GTX 1050 Mobile graphics card at the Consumer Electronic Show (CES) 2017 taking place next month in Las Vegas.
While a similar rumor was doing circles since October this year, now a new report from Digitimes hints an imminent release of Intel’s new graphics card for notebooks.
Worth mentioning that at a time when high-end gaming notebooks are coming equipped with high-end GPUs, plenty of mid-range product out there are practically forced to rely on the GTX 960M or GTX 950M GPUs.
The Digitimes report also suggests that NVIDIA GTX 1060 notebooks are currently experiencing a surge in demand in parts of Asia — more specifically in China and Southeast Asia. That essentially means that the launch of the GTX 1050 Mobile could further boost the sales.
Several NVIDIA and Intel partners including the likes of ASUS, MSI, GIGABYTE, and Lenovo are prepping to flaunt their new gaming notebooks powered by Intel’s new Kaby Lake CPU family, alongside NVIDIA’s brand spanking new GPUs including the GTX 1050 Mobile.
Like we saw in the case with the GTX 1060, GTX 1070, and GTX 1080 for notebooks the new GTX 1050 Mobile will also mostly resemble the desktop variants, meaning you can expect to see a GP107 GPU with 4GB GDDR5 memory (128-bit memory interface) and 768 CUDA cores.
Apart from that, we have also seen benchmarks for what appears to be a yet-to-launch laptop carrying a GTX 1050 Ti inside. As per the test results, the 1050 Ti is around 10% faster than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 970M which happens to be the top-of-the-shelf mobile chip from the chip giant’s previous generation lineup.
Overall, you can expect an array of new and interesting products at the forthcoming CES. Heck, some even calling it the best shows till date — at least when it comes to computer hardware.
