The team over at LaptopMedia had the opportunity to test the first notebook equipped with yet unreleased mobile version of GTX 1050 Ti.
NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti for Notebooks
As you know, NVIDIA no longer differentiates mobile and desktop GPUs with separate codenames, they share the same naming scheme instead, which may often cause some confusion. Physically speaking these cards are not identical. They have different clocks, sometimes less or more cores and more importantly they ship on different boards (either PCI-Express or MXM).
According to the latest report from LM, the new GTX 1050 Ti for notebooks would be faster than GTX 970M in synthetic tests:
|3DMark Cloud Gate (Graphics)||3DMark Fire Strike (Graphics)||Unigine Heaven 4|
|NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Mobile||49976 (+10%)||7757 (+7%)||1836 (+9%)|
|NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970M||45541||7271||1691|
|NVIDIA GeForce GTX 965M||38125||6063||1260|
|NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M||31097||4451||989|
What’s even more interesting is the fact that GTX 1050 Ti Mobile would get higher clocks than its desktop variant, while retaining the same GPU configuration. And by higher I mean 200 MHz higher. Meanwhile the score of 7757 points in FireStrike is actually not that good for GP107 card. Desktop sample I’m currently testing does 7800 points with clocks 156 MHz lower. So take it with a grain of salt, although I did ask LM crew for confirmation and they are sure those clocks are the real thing. Please note though, that the specs listed at LM website are not correct, since they list 64 TMUs, and that’s simply not possible.
