Gamers waiting on a new Pascal notebook may only have to hold out for just a few weeks more. New notebooks may be unveiled this coming Gamescom 2016 in Cologne, Germany.

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.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
