Gaming enthusiasts and even casual players typically opt for desktop computers due to the performance and experience they provide; however, with the release of NVIDIA GTX 10-series mobile graphics cards, there are now some serious reasons to consider gaming notebooks. Just like the GTX 1080, 1070, and 1060, their mobile versions are built on the Pascal architecture with the 16nm FinFET process to deliver a dramatic increase in energy efficiency and raw graphical processing power. These mobile Pascal cards are poised to deliver up to a 40% increase in performance over the previous generation. Based on preliminary 3D Mark 11 benchmarks, they’re capable of outputting similar performance to that of their desktop versions with only a slight 3-5% difference.
The mobile GTX 10-series notebooks are not only powerful, but also come packed with the latest gaming technologies such as NVIDIA GameWorks, Ansel, G-Sync, SLI, HDR capabilities, DirectX 12 support, and more. Furthermore, all three are VR-ready so you can strap on your favorite VR headset and experience an enhanced VR experience driven by NVIDIA VRWorks technologies. Currently, GTX 10-series graphics are available in MSI’s Phantom, Stealth, Apache, Dominator, Titan, Titan SLI, as well as the Republic of Gamers G752VS notebook from ASUS. Some of these are equipped with Tobii eye tracking, NVIDIA G-Sync, 120 Hz, or 4K displays, and even dual video cards for a wide variety of features. Now gaming with friends and attending LAN parties just got whole lot easier.
