Rumor: Nvidia unveils mobile Pascal GPUs at Computex 2016




Nvidia was planning to launch GPUs based on the new architecture Pascal mid-June at the Computex trade show in Taiwan. It will probably go to the mobile versions and not the version for desktop cards.

The introduction of the first Pascal GPUs will happen in the summer during Computex and will focus on gaming laptops, claiming SweClockers citing sources. According to the site is not about the GP100-GPU desktop graphics cards, but a mobile replacement for the GM204- and GM206-GPUs. These GPU’s are currently based on the Maxwell-architecture and are used for the GTX 965m up to and including the 980 GTX.

Pascal Nvidia makes the transition from 28nm to 16nm process with FinFET transistors on TSMC. According to previous rumors have the GP100 17 billion transistors, more than double the GM200 the Titan X and 980 Ti. In addition, the GPU can be equipped with up to 32GB memory HBM2 would have a 4096-bit wide bus and offer a maximum power of 12 TFLOPS, wrote Videocardz earlier this month, based on an old presentation.

Nvidia could reveal more details about Pascal at the GPU Technology Conference early April. The company’s CEO that gives a keynote .

Competitor AMD gave in January, though a glance at his new Polaris architecture should appear, the GPUs later in 2016. In April appear there Lenovo laptops with Radeon 400M GPU, but is not known whether this amounts to video chips based on the new architecture.
