We've just started to see the first laptops arriving equipped with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 GPUs installed, as in yesterday's news of the new Alienware 13. What if you were interested in a gaming laptop but your budget wasn't quite that big? Well it looks like Nvidia and laptop making partners are already preparing and testing machines with GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPUs. A new report published by LaptopMedia.com (LTM) claims to have put such a laptop through benchmark tests and also offers up the "detailed specifications" of this graphics component.

The purported Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti for laptops specs are listed as follows:

  • Base core clock: 1490MHz
  • Boost core clock: 1624MHz
  • CUDA cores: 768
  • Memory bandwidth: 112.1GB/s
  • Memory type and size: GDDR5, 4GB
  • Memory interface: 128-bit
  • ROPs / TMUs: 32 / 64
  • Supported Technologies: OpenCL 1.2, CUDA 6.1, NVIDIA PhysX, DirectCompute 5.0

The headline news is twofold. First of all this laptop-installed GTX 1050 Ti has higher clock speeds than the desktop standard part. Compare the above bullet pointed speeds with the reference desktop core clock base / boost speeds of 1290MHz / 1392MHz respectively. Secondly, in LTM tests using 3DMark Cloud Gate, Fire Strike and Unigine Heaven 4 the new laptop equipped GPU convincingly outclassed mobile GPUs from previous generations. It easily powered past GPUs we would expect to be equipped in much higher price bracket gaming laptops. Check out the synthetic test results table below:

It will indeed be interesting to see how keenly gaming laptops, fitted with the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti for laptops, will be priced. However, it is likely we will have to wait until near the end of the year, or early 2017, for such products to hit retail.

Am I understanding it correctly…the mobile variant of the 1050 Ti is more powerful than the desktop variant? After years of understanding similarly named mobile counterparts are slower than the desktop equivalents why would they implement a naming structure like this?

LOL,its almost like what AMD did with Polaris 11 - mobile/embedded/professional versions of the GPU,seem better specced than the one we got in the desktop RX460.

Still if it boosts higher than the desktop one(assuming it does not overheat),thats better than desktop GTX960 level performance easily.
Frustration! The price for the 1060/1070/1080 laptops is simply far too high. You now have machines with 1xM.2. slot along with an OD and 1x2.5". What happened to all the super raid type stuff? Ah, yes, they will appear again in the ‘next’ revamp'.

In the U.K it's also annoying as Amazon is filled with Asus laptops with U.S. keyboards. That's annoying. No release date from the U.K. machines so that leaves Alienware, with their HOT machines, Gigabyte, HP and MSI.

Part of the issue,is AMD is not really competing as well in laptops which means Nvidia can kind of get away with charging more IMHO. There does seem to be some movement due to the RX460 and RX470 mobile cards,but I think needs AMD to get more designs into laptops for that to happen,so hopefully the rumours of improved Polaris 10 versions is true.

However,despite all of this I think laptop makers are missing a good chance - if they could push for more affordable gaming laptops with an external graphics box,I can see more and more people buying one over a desktop.

I know I would probably be interested.
