NVIDIA Unveils GeForce 10-Series Notebook GPUs With Good Features

NVIDIA has just released three brand new notebook GPU all at the same time with incredible features. Before going into details of the features, let's have a quick look at the tech term NVIDIA. Nvidia is an American technology company based in Santa Clara, California. The company produces graphics processing units (GPUs) for the gaming market, as well as system on a chip units (SOCs) for the mobile computing and automotive market. Nvidia's primary GPU product line, labeled "GeForce", is in direct competition with Advanced Micro Devices' (AMD) "Radeon" products according to wikipedia

The company announced the GeForce 10-series which are on the platform of the latest Pascal architecture to the notebook. We now have the GTX 1080, 1070, and the 1060 running inside notebooks. Notice the lack of the M suffix here, as NVIDIA thinks the notebook GPU are nearly on par with its desktop variation. In fact, NVIDIA claims only around 10% drop in performance compared to their respective desktop parts.

The three notebook parts have almost the same specs as the desktop ones. The notebook 1060 has 1280 CUDA cores with 1506MHz base clock and 1708MHz boost clock and 192-bit 6GB GDDR5 memory. The notebook 1070 actually has more CUDA cores, 2048 vs 1920 on the desktop 1070, but is clocked lower with a 1442MHz base clock and 1646 boost clock. There's also 256-bit 8GB GDDR5 memory. The 1080 gets the full fat 2560 CUDA cores with 1556MHz base clock and 1733MHz boost clock and the faster 256-bit 8GB GDDR5X memory. All three have factory overclock support.

Based on Pascal, all three support the new NVIDIA features such as Ansel and simultaneous multi-projection. NVIDIA has improved the G-Sync capabilities, making it support up to 2560x1440 monitors at 120Hz. BatteryBoost has also been updated with a smoother frame rate cap and more control over individual games through GeForce Experience software to help extend battery life.


OEMs have already announced products based on the new processors and more will be coming shortly. Expect to see big improvements over the previous generation processors in terms of performance and efficiency.


  1. Pls wizy, I want to switch from Intel graphics to nvidia geforces. How do I go abt it..
    U can add me on ur Watsapp 08161807815.

    1. Hi Nonso,
      1. Go to Control Panel > Device Manager > Under Display adapter > you should see Intel HD Graphics and NVIDIA.

      2. Go to NVIDIA Control Panel > Desktop > Display GPU Activity Icon in Notification Area. You will see a black chip picture in the taskbar. If the chip turns rainbow, which means your NVIDIA GPU is running.

      3. Go to NVIDIA Control Panel to switch between two graphics manually under Manage 3D Settings > Preferred Graphics Processor.

      This should allow you to run the system on the Nvidia GPU whenever required.

  2. Nice update for the lovers of good pc
