Nvidia plan to use GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 desktop cards in gaming laptops

Absurdly powerful laptops we desperately want

Gaming laptops will use the full desktop versions of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070, PCGamer reports.

Due to the Pascal cards’ increased power efficiency, Nvidia is reportedly planning to implement the full desktop versions of the GPUs into gaming laptops.

The company will not feature any M-class Pascal graphics cards, instead they will lower the TDP of the 10 Series in order to provide gaming notebooks with a full desktop experience.

The GTX 1080 has a 180W TDP, while the GTX 1070 has a TDP of only 150W.

This shows a massive reduction from the previous generation of Nvidia cards, along with an increase in performance.

In order to lower the power usage of the cards, Nvidia will tweak the core clocks and voltages of the GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070. The adapted cards may not feature in all laptops, as they require a higher standard of cooling and are larger than M-class GPUs.

Although the desktop versions of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 and 1070 will remain slightly more powerful, this could be a big leap in GPU performance for gaming laptops.
