NVIDIA GTX 1070/1080 for Notebooks Coming Soon

Recommended Posts

So according to PC Gamer, they have a "source" who tells them NVIDIA will be readying it's newest Pascal chips for the mobile form factor and they will be released sometime in August/September of this year.  In addition, the rumor is these new GPUs will not be cut down M variants but be full-fledged desktop GPUs crammed into high performance notebooks (e.g. MSI and Clevo) but just clocked lower to fit the TDP and power envelope. That shouldn't really come as a surprise to anyone since NVIDIA crammed a 165W desktop 980 in notebooks last year and with GTX 1070 only sipping 150W and GTX 1080 at 180W, it makes sense to release these as soon as possible.

 

Quote

According to our contacts, Nvidia is readying the release of its new 10-series chips for notebooks. The kick is, they won't be M versions of desktop GPUs. They will be the same chips used on the desktops, just operating at a lower TDP—we're told there will be the same number of shader units, etc.

 

We're also told that Nvidia will not go back to producing separate M versions of its desktop GPUs, which is good news for those looking for better gaming performance on the road or in a desktop replacement type notebook. 

 

Despite what PC Gamer says, we may yet still see M variants with different names down the line as there are a lot of gamers out there that still want high performance chips but with thinner profiles and longer battery lives but that will probably come sometime after the 1080/1070 are released for notebooks. In addition, we've still got AMD's newest Polaris coming and with the 480 only consuming 150W, AMD could easily shoehorn that into a notebook just as NVIDIA is doing so we expect both companies to announce availability of their newest notebook graphics chips soon.

I expect them to really do what they've always done. The 680m was a desktop 670, with lower clocks and tdp. The 780m was a desktop 680/770, again with lower clocks and tdp.

 

They could just release the 1070 with lower clocks and tdp, but just call it a 1070 instead of a 1080m. The 1080 will likely be an exclusive larger than standard mxm card like the 980 is now.

 

My main concern with this approach is that the 980 came in many size formats. If this trend continues we may lose the standard mxm form factor and the means to upgrade gpus in high end laptops, with everything being bga in the "m" realm, and everything non-m not conforming to a standard.

It will be the full chip but with lower clocks.

I'd rather invest in a laptop with one of those new video card amplifiers tbh now that they're coming out with those...

My wallet is ready! I wish it could be on sale soon.

 

I figure any sales would be closer to March next year or maybe as early as October this year all depending on when they announce a Ti or Titan variation.

Here is something interesting to look at regarding the new Eurocom Sky X9E2. 
(No, I don't have one myself and I don't have access to any more information.)

So, 1000 series will be compatible with current notebooks?

I hope that I'll be able to put single 1080 into my P870DM (980M version). Or at least dual 1070's (but i don't like multi-gpu after all).

Don't do anything yet. There is no proof for us to examine. It sucks that the P870DM-G has been perma-gimped with proprietary 1080 GPU form factors. 1070 SLI isn't good enough. If I cannot have 1080 SLI I am not going to upgrade at all, and there is no way in hell I am going to buy a new machine to get it. I'll just keep what I have until I can replace it with monster desktop hardware. I'm not paying for another new machine only to find out if it gets perma-gimped on the next generation like what has just happened to existing machine owners. I'm extremely dissatisfied with how things are turning out. It was very dishonest of Clevo to pull this crap. They could have released 1080 on the 180W 980 PCB, but they chose to render the P870DM-G obsolete. That's a really horrible thing they did to their customers that spend the most to own the best.

Personally I don't feel "betrayed" coz lack of two 1080's since P870DM "1" had also max 1 desktop GPU. I know it limits but if we would not be able to put single 1080... That would be an outrage. At least for notebook from this top-high-end segment. 

Single 1080 - should be possible!

Dual 1070 and Single 1070 - should be possible!

Dual 1080 - would be awesome to see that. But as far as we know our MXM slots are too close each other (1-2cm too much) and we have only 1 power connector. :(

To me not being able to have 1080 SLI is an outrage and totally unacceptable. One of the primary reason I wanted the P870DM-G was to be able to upgrade to two of the current best GPUs in SLI and I expect to be able to do that for no less than three years.

 

I simply don't give a damn about 1070 or any other second fiddle GPU. I want the best or nothing. So, I and others that share my values are screwed. Clevo pulled an Alienware on us.

Hmm you're right.

But anyway nvidia just changed gpu name strategy.

1070 = old 80M

1080 = old 80 desktop

1060 = old 70M

Anyone heard rumors about Clevo, that they plannig to releas upgrade kits on September/October? Maybe not everything lost yet about 1060/1070/1080 upgrades?

There is still chance for them to do something. We have only time :P

They will provide GPU upgrades or loose customers. It's their choice to pick "old, current Nissan GTR" or pick up "new one" for our money.

No, as far as we know, no Pascal GPUs are incompatible with any pre-Pascal notebook. NVIDIA, MSI and Clevo have bent over backwards making physical hardware and dimensional changes to ensure we are all royally screwed. MSI pulled the same evil bullshit on their customers.

      After spending significant time and effort to obtain "DC" screen for 8770w (which is essentially a regular IPS panel with fancy board that converts 8bpc LVDS to 10bpc DP), I have finally got and installed one. All works great, except of the one problem...

      It has pretty bad banding / posterization in lower shadows. I have tried profiling it in different modes (full range, sRGB, rec709) - issue persists, and it indeed shows only in the lowest part of the characteristic curve. Mids and highlights are represented fine and show low deviation from reference values.

      GPU is HP K4000M, Nvidia drivers installed "as it is", video-card is identified without a hitch.
      Banding was not present with the original TN panel using the same GPU.
       
      While checking a software side, I have noticed that Win10 has bit depth set to 8-bit...
       

       
      My initial reaction was, - "Easy, let's change it in `nvidia-settings` and we're all set":

      ...but that would be too easy, right? After selecting 10bpc and clicking "Apply" screen went off and back on, only to show that depth stayed at 8bpc. Repeating the above few times yielded exactly the same result and I'm not in a hurry to meet a cliched (and laymen) definition of insanity.
       
      Let's check GPU-Z. So far so good, nothing unusual. Notice the highlighted BIOS version and subvendor string:
       
      Time to delve into other tabs. We are running WDDDM v2.4 which supports GPU dithering, but hey... BIOS version has changed!
       
      Briefly back to `nvidia-settings` to check what is reported by vendor's own utility:

       
      So far, we have two strings for BIOS version:
      80.04.5A.00.02 (let's call it an "A") 80.4.33.0.37 (let's call it a "B")  
      Notice how 2nd one seems to not follow hexademical notation. Lastly, "NVIDIA BIOS" drop-down, reports "A" version:
       
      ...and monitor section which confirms that rig is indeed capable of 10bpc, but currently running at mere 8bpc:

       
      Windows "Adapter settings", reports version "B". It's 2019, diversity is a must.

       
      "NVidia inspector" is of the same opinion:

       
      Now, let's use some seriously legit tools and check-in exported BIOS file in `nvflash`:

       
      Here we have two three interesting findings:
      Reported vendor is Dell, not an HP. See this link for details. BIOS version is back to "A". Have I already mentioned diversity? MXM module uses MX25L2005 flash storage in WSON-8 packaging. If things go real nasty, we should be able to rescue a patient via Pomona clip and external programmer.  
      Loading the same file in "Kepler BIOS tweaker" confirms the facts:

       
      EDID settings, courtesy of NVidia Control Panel. Hex dump can be found at the bottom of this post.
      ...Shall I be worried about "60.02Hz" refresh rate?
       
      To summarize:
      Why two different BIOS versions are reported? Anything to do with UEFI (e.g. HP is sideloading its own during boot)?.. Why two different vendors reported? As far as I remember, this is branded HP GPU. Where to get "clean" BIOS of K4000M for future experiments? Ideally from 8770w equipped with "DreamColor" panel from a factory.

      Hi guys, bit of a rookie to the whole EGPU scene. Currently I have:
       
      - MacBook Pro 2015 13inch (3.1GHz Core i7 16GB RAM)
      - Razer X Core 
      - Apple TB3 to TB2 Adapter
      -  TB2 Cable (Cable Matters)
      - 23inch AOC External Monitor
       
      I am wonder about what graphics card to get to run X-Plane11 with high graphic settings?
      I have purgewrangler set up and ready to use with an AMD graphics card, but am also open to the idea of an Nvidia graphics card.
      Any advice appreciated. I did not buy a Windows PC as I need a Mac for various other things and wanted an all-in-one laptop.

      Hello to all dear visitors, 
       
      I have been using Lenovo y510p notebook for two years but in games I think my graphic card is inadequate. After that I've bought Mini PCI-e EXP GDC and attached it to where the wireless card socket is.  However because it has x1 speed its performance is too low. Even though on tests rx460's ranks is low than rx480, it has more performance.
       
      In x1 PCI-e port, the performance is too low and inefficient. On GPUz programme, use of memory controller is 20% but use of GPU is 100%. I mean, I've been hooked to the x1 speed.
       
      Components : EXP GDC version 8.0 +450w PSU + rx480
       
      I've read all pages about ultrabay, I want to buy and to share in forum.
       
      If anyone has ultrabay to PCI-e port, I want to buy. Please help.
       
      Thanks for everything.

      I got the exp gdc beast 8.5 got all the connections right... laptop boots up... fans turn on the gpu.... device manager detects gtx 1060 with a “ ! “ in a yellow triangle. Now what to do.... i tried to do the bios mod.... but realised that i have 3.07 version. 
      Questions-
      1 is there any way to get this done without the mod?? 
      2 if mod is the only way... kindly help me with step by step instruction in laymans terms... i m not a techy... so i might not understand technical terms.... altho i am interested... but learning yet. Please help.

      Hello all
       
      I have a Clevo P370EM3 laptop with a pair of GTX 680Ms in SLI mode and have never been able to get Linux to work properly with full acceleration and without tearing. I have tried every xorg config I can find, and even all the modifications from the nvidia configurator to no avail. Has anyone been able to get these things to work 100% in Linux? I have typically used ubuntu based distros, including Mint, and every available driver version from the repositories, but can never get it to work quite right.
       
      Thanks for any help anyone can provide. It is killing me to run Windows on this machine because of these issues, and I am almost to the point of installing the inferior 7970 cards.
       
      Have a great day
      -TCH
