Nvidia will purportedly announce Pascal 10xx GPUs for notebooks on August 1st
Sources close to Laptopmedia.com and Videocardz.com claim that Pascal for notebooks will be announced on the 1st of August with numerous demonstrations and new notebooks on show at Gamescom 2016. This year's Gamescom will be from August 17th to the 21st in Cologne, Germany.
Laptopmedia strongly believes from its unnamed sources that Nvidia will introduce the Pascal 10xx lineup for notebooks in advance of Gamescom 2016. Laptopmedia is generally considered to be reliable, so we have little reason to disregard the rumors. The first set of mobile Pascal GPUs will supposedly carry the codenames "N17E-Gx" and "N17P-Ex".
Developers and suppliers have also been hearing that an August time frame for Pascal notebooks is likely. The basic graphics architecture of Pascal compared to its Maxwell predecessor is described in our review of the GTX 1080. Some of the first notebooks sporting Pascal GPUs are expected to the MSI GT73 and GT83 with more from other manufacturers yet to be announced.
