NVIDIA preparing GeForce GTX 980 for laptops

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M which is already quite the mobile GPU used in gaming laptops, but we also know  that, NVIDIA isn’t just sitting around doing nothing under mobile GPU front. NVIDIA is preparing a new, very powerful mobile GPU that would pack the full GM204 GPU. The GM204′ GPU is same as the GeForce GTX 980 under the desktop video card which NVIDIA launched last year. It is a sign that we can expect full 2048 CUDA cores, 256-bit memory bus, and 4GB of GDDR5. Although we expected a GTX 990M according to the rumors that we last report, but it looks like this new GPU is going to be the GM204-based on GTX 980, this time inside of a gaming laptop.


Rumors are about the mobile GTX 980 could feature with 2048 CUDA cores, 128 TMUs, and 64 ROPS – just like its desktop counterpart. Now is that is compared to the GTX 980M found in ASUS ROG G751 which has 1536 CUDA cores, 96 TMUs and 64 ROPs. While moving over to clock speeds, the desktop GTX 980 has a GPU clock of 1126MHz and a Boost clock of 1218MHz while the GTX 980M comes in at 1038MHz, while the new GM204-based mobile GTX 980 will reportedly clock in at 1190MHz.

Whereas the full GM204 GPU is going to be quite the upgrade, which will allow world of mobile 4K 60FPS gaming, and QHD gaming at 144Hz with G-Sync. More news to come about this soon in coming months, so tuned with us.
