A few days after the alleged leak of a driver listing several unreleased mobile Pascal GPUs, new rumours of Nvidia prepping two Pascal-based GPUs have surfaced. The mobile GPUs in question are the GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1060 – both of which are said to replace the Maxwell-based GTX 950M and GTX 960M GPUs. Interestingly, like previous rumours before this, the “M” suffix is not being included in the GPU nomenclature.
According to LaptopMedia, the rumoured GTX 1050 Ti will come with 4GB VRAM along with a memory bus width of 128-bit. Unsurprisingly, this mobile GPU will be equipped with the GDDR5 memory standard. Interestingly, if this rumour were to true, it’ll be the first time that Nvidia has fitted a GPU with a “Ti” suffix inside a gaming notebook. It’s also worth nothing that the GTX 1050 Ti will carry the codename “N17P-G1”.
Next up is the GTX 1060; and no, this isn’t the one from Hong Kong. There’s a high chance that both the mobile and desktop versions of this graphic card will share the same GPU. The memory capacity of the mobile GTX 1060 GPU is said to be at 6GB and it’ll be using the GDDR5 memory standard. In addition, it’s said that this GPU will come with a 192-bit memory bus width.
So far, this rumour comes only from one source; which means that this one should be taken with a grain of salt. Regardless, with more and more rumours of Pascal-based notebook GPUs surfacing, talks of an official launch happening very soon becomes increasingly likely.
