On July 16, NVIDIA officially unveiled the Pascal GeForce GTX 1080/1070/1060 generation mobile gaming graphics cards, which promise high performance and lower power consumption.
We know very well that in terms of architecture, Pascal has not gone far from Maxwell, but the technical process has been reduced from 28 Nm to 16 Nm FinFET, which allows to reduce heat generation and power consumption at the same performance. It also allows for higher frequencies from the chip. NVIDIA claims a performance increase over the previous generation of up to 75%.
In this table you can compare the technical specifications of mobile and desktop graphics cards of the Pascal generation.

Going on sale
Some manufacturers have already announced the release of laptops with these video cards.
Particularly interesting is the MSI GT83VR model, where there will be 2 GeForce GTX 1080 mobiles and an Intel Core i7-6920HQ processor!
And you write in the comments how you feel about gaming laptops and the fact that mobile hardware will soon be almost equal to desktop hardware in performance?
