Dell unveils its new XPS ‘gaming’ laptop featuring Kaby Lake processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics card.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Mobile to launch at CES?
The GeForce GTX 1050 for notebooks has still not yet been released by NVIDIA. For such reason seeing a new laptop equipped with Pascal GP107 GPU does raise a question whether we missed the launch, of Dell made a goof by posting the specs of its new laptop. It is most likely the latter scenario, as GTX 1050 notebooks are expected to be shown at CES 2017, which starts early next year.
Dell XPS 9650 features 15 inch Ultra HD (3840×2160) screen, Kaby Lake CPU (i3-7100HQ, i5-7300HQ or i7-7700HQ) and GeForce GTX 1050 with up to 4GB VRAM. The specs might just be referring to GTX 1050 series overall, not precisely to the non-Ti model here (in case you were wondering why it says 4GB).
We are yet to see the exact specs of GTX 1050 mobile graphics cards, but it would be surprising if even the clock speeds were slightly modified for mobile use, as GP107 cards have rather small power requirements, hence there’s no need for any adjustment in this field.
