The Pascal architecture has been pushing performance in the mobile sector more when compared to previous gen GTX series M GPUs. This is evident with the GTX 1070’s mobility performance, which might not be as good as the desktop version, but sure is better than the GTX 1060 6 GB desktop version.

If this trend is being followed by Nvidia, consumers will definitely be crowding for laptops with GTX 1050 and GTX 1050 Ti, because it supposedly carries on almost the same performance as the deskop counterparts.

The specifications to note above are the core clock rates. While the laptop GTX 1050 comes fairly close to its desktop counterpart, the 1050 Ti takes a leap forward, with a 200 MHz bump to its base clock and a 220 MHz increase in its boost clock range. That’s a big jump, and an unusual move for a mobile version of a desktop GPU.

Surprisingly, Nvidia’s documentation also lists the laptop GTX 1050 as having just 16 ROP units—half that of the desktop card. Only the benchmarks can tell how much of a difference that will incur.

Aside from the clock rates, the laptop GTX 1050 will apparently be available in a configuration with 4GB of local memory. That’s in contrast to the desktop part, which is only available with 2GB. Both laptop cards will be using the same 128-bit path to 7 GT/sec GDDR5 memory as their desktop counterparts. I am not sure if the GTX 1050 will be able to utilize all that RAM, but only will be able to conclude when a hands on review is done.

What do you guys think? Are you excited for the laptops that will contain these cards or would you rather buy a cheaper PC? Let us know in the comments below. The price of the laptops are still not available, but we are speculating that they will cost about 60,000 INR to70,000 INR at launch.
