Rumoured GeForce GF1040 GPU Promises Low-Cost Gaming Laptops

A Polish retailer’s product page recently leaked out a new laptop from Lenovo sporting what appears to be an upcoming GeForce GPU. Those looking to get a laptop equipped with NVIDIA’s Pascal graphics have plenty of options with GTX 1050 up to GTX 1080. There are even new power-efficient Max-Q variants. The arrival of a GF1040 could mean an even better entry-level gaming performance for the mobile segment.

The first laptop to sport the upcoming GPU is the Lenovo IdeaPad 320S. It is a 15.6″ notebook equipped with an Intel Core i5 8th gen 8250U CPU running at 1.6 to 3.4 GHz. The resolution is up to full-HD 1920 x 1080 which sounds great for gaming on the cheap.  It has 8GB of RAM plus 256GB of SSD storage so it has no bottleneck there. It is up for pre-order at for 3 249 zł which is the equivalent of around £700.

From the photos, the GeForce GF1040 sprting laptop appears to be much thinner than typical GTX 1050 machines. It also does not look like a gaming notebook, but rather appears to be more for business users. The price needs to be a lot better if it wants to compete, however manufacturers can sure create more affordable configurations later on. Just like how there are plenty of options now sporting a GTX 1050 GPU.
