At SIGGRAPH 2016, Nvidia showcased a demo of the mobile variant of its revolutionary Pascal-based Quadro GPU. High-performance mobility GPUs based on Pascal architecture are expected to be launched later this month by Nvidia. The latest leaks from Videocardz and LaptopMedia reveal the performance number for these chips. Nvidia plans to ship these chips for gaming and enthusiast grade notebooks.

Nvidia’s Pascal architecture is based on 16nm FinFET process node. FinFET process nodes are extremely power efficient. The new mobility chips will feature the same naming schemes as their desktop counterparts, if rumors are to be believed. All GeForce 10 mobility variants are based on Pascal architecture.

GTX 1070 (Mobile) Specs:

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 features 2048 CUDA cores, 170 TMUs and 64 ROPs. Core clock runs at 1443 MHz, the boost clock at 1645 MHz and the memory is clocked at 8 GHz. The chip boasts an 8GB GDDR5 memory and TDP is between 125-150W.
