NVIDIA has launched GeForce GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti last month to live in the entry-level territory. These graphic cards are primed at delivering lower power consumption and 1080p gaming for budgeted users.
Fresh news says that Asus, Gigabyte, MSI and Lenovo are all planning to release new gaming notebooks with a "mobile" variant of Nvidia's cheapest cards from the new 10-series range, specifically, the GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti at CES 2017.
After launching graphic cards for the desktop market, NVIDIA will bring GTX 1050, and 1050 Ti most probably, to the notebook segment. CES 2017 will host a number of new gaming laptops which will be powered by GTX 1050. It is hardly a surprise considering as we have seen GTX 1050 Ti powered notebook in a performance test before also.
According to DigiTimes, citing supply chain sources in a new report that claims that we'll see the powerful new notebooks at the CES in Las Vegas in January next year. Also Nvidia will be unveiling their new GTX 1050 mobile GPUs at CES in January, sitting alongside Intel's new Kaby Lake gaming notebook CPUs
The report says that, "Nvidia is also ready to announce its entry-level GeForce GTX 1050 GPU for notebooks. Nvidia GTX 1060 GPU-equipped notebooks are currently enjoying strong demand from China and South East Asia and the release of the GTX 1050 is expected to further increase sales."
Nvidia announced the GTX 1050 in autumn this year, peddling the low-power chip as a budget alternative to its top-end sibling, the GTX 1080. Despite its low cost (£139), the GTX 1050 Ti is capable of offering compelling Full HD gaming performance.
Nvidia have yet to announce their budget mobile GPU, While the LaptopMedia report says that they have been testing an early notebook sample with the GTX 1050 Ti inside some times before only and their initial benchmarks have the new GPU outpacing the classic GTX 970M chip.
In the LaptopMedia report their GTX 1050 Ti is running at 1,490MHz base and 1,624MHz boost. We will hopefully have official confirmation of the mobile GPU's specs very soon.
GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti are not the only GPUs expected at CES. There have been rumors that Nvidia will unveil GTX 1080 Ti as well. The successor to the Maxwell GPU will be primed for 4K gaming and it's between the GTX 1080 and TITAN X. The CES 2017 will take place from January 5 to January 8 at Las Vegas.
