Gigabyte Aorus Rep hints at "next gen" mobile GPUs later this year

Nvidia's Pascal series of graphics cards are almost two years old, leaving many PC gamers in a strange position where they want to upgrade their systems but they also expect the release of next-generation hardware to be just around the corner. 

Nobody wants to purchase a new system to have Nvidia release a new series of graphics cards just a few months later, leading a perspective Gigabyte Aero 15X notebook purchaser to ask his local Gigabyte representative whether or not a new hardware refresh is coming. 

In response to this question, Atom80, Gigabyte/Aorus' UK representative stated that they were expecting notebook refreshes "towards the end of the year" after the release of the "next gen of GPUs". 

If Nvidia's next-generation of GPUs follows a Pascal-like release schedule, Nvidia will release desktop variants of their next-generation GPUs first and launch mobile versions of the same products two or three months later. This release schedule would suggest a summer release for Nvidia's next generation of desktop GPUs.

At this time nothing is known about Nvidia's next generation of graphics hardware, though you can expect the usual efficiency improvements other generation-to-generation improvements.

Oooooh sounds lovely. Was going to grab the Dell XPS 15 with a 1060 but if newer stuff comes out at the end of the year I'd rather wait since I'm not in a hurryQuote

It's got to be next generation rather than a rebrand, knowing Nvidia these days and considering the time frame.Quote
