8.6 Out of 10

In real games the result won’t be anywhere near this remarkable since this is a pure pixel fillrate test, but it goes to show that NVIDIA has been able to expand their effective memory bandwidth in concert with their ROP and shader performance improvements.

Given their differing architectures I’m hesitant to say this is a memory bandwidth factor as well, but if it were then R9 290XU has a very big memory bandwidth advantage going into this.

Report: NVIDIA to Announce Mobile Pascal Graphics at Gamescom

by Sebastian Peak |
www.pcper.com
We had previously reported on the rumors of a mobile GTX 1070 and 1060, and we can only assume a 1080 will also be available (though VideoCardz is not speculating on the specs of this high-end mobile card just yet).

ZOTAC Introduces ZBOX MAGNUS EN980 VR Ready Mini-PC

by Sebastian Peak |
www.pcper.com
The ZBOX MAGNUS EN980 supplants the EN970 as the most powerful version of ZOTAC's gaming mini systems, and will come equipped with no less than an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980.
Designed with a functional minimalistic approach, it incorporates the water-cooling system, and the shape and surface dimensions to provide great effectiveness in heat dissipation, further strengthening the cooling process with the help of natural aerodynamics.
Clearly I am excited to spend more time with the latest in MSI's GT72S line of gaming notebooks thanks to the extremely impressive performance of the GTX 980 and Intel Skylake processor.
That Intel Core i7-6820HK is a quad-core HyperThreaded beast of a mobile processor scaling up to 3.6 GHz in Turbo mode.
It was simply unbelievable to see in person; a GPU inside of a gaming notebook be overclocked this far and be perfectly stable.
Again, if you were playing, and it was a blind test where you couldn't see what was powering the Oculus Rift, you would not guess that this was a gaming notebook.
