Notebook GTX 1070 gets an upgrade from 1920 to 2048 cores
On Monday, ASUS, MSI, Gigabyte Sager and other industry players partnered with system integrator Xotic PC to announce a new lineup of 60 gaming notebooks built using Nvidia’s Geforce 10-Series Pascal GPU lineup – more specifically, Geforce GTX 1080, GTX 1070 and GTX 1060 GPUs.
While Vega sticks with 14nm
A little birdie told us that Nvidia is giving its Volta the 16nm FinFET treatment. This product uses stacked DRAM too so it looks like the whole thing will be pretty bleeding edge.
10 partners to launch custom boards
Nvidia got back to us with the official pricing for the Geforce GTX 1060 with more details than our earlier article we posted last Friday. The card in the US will cost $249 + tax while EU cards with VAT will range from 279 Euro. The UK price is GBP 239 which is at current exchange identical to Euro pricing. They will launch on July 19th.
Best-selling high card in history sources claim
Many of our colleagues were writing about the shortage of Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 and 1070 cards and they got things mostly right. Our multiple sources close to AIB partners told us that the 1080 is the bestselling high-end card in the history of GPU.
Priced at US $149.99
Samsung has added a new 500GB model to its budget-oriented 750 EVO SSD lineup, which comes with Samsung's MGX controller and is based on 16nm TLC NAND.
Helping out its contract chip makers
TSMC is thinking about dropping contract prices for its handset-IC clients to help ease the pressure of their declining ASPs and gross margins.
For less than $299
AMD is about to launch two GPUs soon. One is codenmamed Polaris 10 and will replace Radeon 390 cards and the other, the Polaris 11 should replace the Radeon 370 and take on Geforce 950 performance.
Jen-Hsun Huang just announced Pascal P100 a new GPU based on Pascal architecture, and it is in production, shipping "soon."
Coming to customers in Q3 2016
Helio P10 phones will start shipping before the end of Q1 2016 and Mediatek is already working on its P20 – a 16nm improved version of the chip.
