We won’t see NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti-powered notebooks until January next year

nvidia-1050-1050ti-laptopAlthough everyone is talking about the newly announced GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti GPUs and the hype is absolutely real, we really don’t want to burst your bubble but the news about notebooks coming equipped with those GPUs isn’t good.

We received an interesting information from our valuable source that NVIDIA is planning to release its mobile version of the GeForce GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti sometime during January 2017 so don’t hold your breath. Wonder why’s the hold-up? We have a few theories.

The most probable one would be the manufacturing process. We’ve already heard about NVIDIA changing its fab process for the GTX 1050 cards from 16nm TSMC to 14nm by Samsung. This might also be the reason for the late delivery of the notebooks with this GPU. Maybe the technology needs a little more work or the change comes a little bit late. Also, this way the GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti won’t receive the rumored refresh the rest of the GPUs are going to get with the 14nm Samsung chips. And by the beginning of the next year, all of the Pascal GPUs will migrate to Samsung’s 14nm chips.

Another possible reason is money. NVIDIA will surely be selling. tons of new hardware during the holidays and will rely on the GTX 1050 hold-up to boost its sales of the high-end graphics – the GTX 1060, 1070 and 1080.

Either way, the GTX 1050-powered notebooks won’t be coming very soon so if you were planning to buy a cheap high-performance notebook with GTX 1050 Ti for the holidays, you might want to hold on to your money for a while. Still, there’s a slight chance that NVIDIA’s plans might change until the end of the year so if we have new information from our sources, we’ll keep you in touch.

…or, you can choose between the already available gaming notebooks on the market so you won’t miss the much-deserved Christmas present: http://amzn.to/2eJUy5d

If amd could cram a 14nm rx 460 into a laptop 2 months ago, nvidia can do it with the 1050 right now.
