Now that that 1080 and 1070 have been showed and the 1080 even reviewed I'm becoming very interested in the other Pascal GPUs which haven't been showed yet, like the the notebook versions, 1060 and 1050, and the 1090. A good time for release for the notebook cards would be late-June, the budget desktop cards in August and the 1090 in October.
The notebook cards could have the same features as 1070 and 1080 with the following performance improvements over the 900m version and TDPs.
1080m: 65% performance improvement, slightly faster than Titan X, 8 gigabytes of GDDR5X VRAM 100W TDP. Same price as 980m.
1075m: New line due to 1080m focus on performance and 1070m on efficiency, mid way between 1070 and 1080 in every aspect. 8 gigabytes of GDDR5 VRAM.
1070m: 45% performance improvement, 6 gigabytes of GDDR5, 60W TDP. Focus on efficiency for thin and light-weight gaming notebooks. Same price as 970m.
1060m: 60% performance improvement, 4 gigabytes of GDDR5, 55W TDP. 10% cheaper than 960m at release.
1050m: 60% performance improvement, 40W TDP. 4 gigabytes of GDDR5. 15% cheaper than 950m at release
1040m: 70% performance improvement, 25W TDP, 3 gigabytes of GDDR5. 10% more expensive than 940m at release. Best card for budget laptops or portability focused ones.
For the 1050 I'd like to see 4 gigs of GDDR5 VRAM, 72.5W power consumption, 20% better performance than the 950 and $129. A PS4 killer with that cheap price, low power demand with modest need for cables and expensive PSUs an much better performance with as good textures as PS4.
The 1060 would become the new ideal for 1080p gaming card. Around the same as 970 performance in non-VR gaming, but with 10series features like good VR support and 115 watts TDP. 4 gigabytes GDDR5 and $199.
For the 1090 a 90% performance improvement over the 980 ti with 8 gigabytes of GDDR5X VRAM and HBM2. 240 watts TDP and $899.
Bonus card: GTX 1090m released one month after the 1090 with same performance as 1080 at 150W TDP and almost same pricetag as 1090.
What do you think of these improvements? Realistic?
