The complete list of laptops with Nvidia GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 graphics

The complete list of laptops with Nvidia GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 graphics
By Andrei Girbea , last updated on January 21, 2019

This article is a complete list of gaming laptops with Nvidia Pascal GTX 1070 and 1080 graphics chips, with details on some of their important particularities, prices and links towards more in-depth reviews that will take your through all their fine bits and potential quirks.

If you want to jump straight to the lists, here’s the one of GTX 1080 laptops, and here’s the one of GTX 1070 options.

We’re covering all the options built on the full-power versions of the GTX 1070/1080 GPUs in here, including full-size machines and the few existing thin-and-light models.

If you’re however primarily interested in a slim and lightweight computer, you should also check out our article on laptops built on Nvidia GTX 1070/1080 Max-Q hardware, which is the lower voltage variant of the Pascal family, better suited for compact devices. That aside, quite a few portable gaming machines are also built on GTX 1060 graphics solutions, so you’ll also want to look over those options as well.

With Pascal Nvidia no longer makes dedicated mobile chips for laptops, but solutions closely derived from to their desktop architecture, just slightly lower-clocked and tweaked in order to meet lower TDP requirements.

This makes them overall considerably faster than the older Maxwell Mobile chips (GTX 970M and 980M), with increases in the 80 to 200% range, and just about 5-10% slower than their desktop counterparts. That makes the Pascal gaming notebooks much more interesting for those of you that are looking primarily at performance.

What to expect in terms of gaming performance from a GTX 1080 laptop

What to expect in terms of gaming performance from a GTX 1080 laptop

Pascal laptops are not just significantly faster in games and VR, they also incorporate high-resolution screens with GSync support and up to 144 Hz refresh rates, various storage options, up to 64 GB of RAM, excellent RGB keyboards, Thunderbolt 3 and HDMI 2.0 ports, and pretty hefty batteries in most cases.

Graphics aside, you’ll find GTX 1070/1080 notebooks mostly built on Intel Core H, K and HK (overclockable) platforms, with the latter Core i7 and i9 six-core Coffee Lake H variants offering a significant performance boost over the older quad-core Skylake and KabyLake lines. So if you’re buying a high-end gaming laptop these days, you should aim for a Coffee Lake configuration.

Nvidia GTX 1070 laptops

The GTX 1070 Mobility chips are built on the Nvidia GP104 core, get 8 GB of DDR5 memory, have a standard clock speed of 1442 MHz (Boost up to 1645 MHz), a memory clock of 8008 MHz, 256 GB/s memory bandwidth, 2048 CUDA cores and a TDP of around 120 W. Some laptops offer dual GTX 1070 chips in SLI, while other offer factory-overclocked variants.

You should expect full-power GTX 1070 notebooks to start at around $1700. If you’re interested in the thinner and more compact variants built on GTX 1070 Max-Q graphics, like the highly appreciated MSI GS65 Thin, Gigabyte Aero 15x or Razer Blade 15, check out this detailed article over here, as well as our post on the best thin-and-light gaming laptops of the moment.

Performance wise, GTX 1070 laptops are able to handle all the recent games at FHD resolutions and maximum details, but also UHD resolutions on Medium-High settings. Compared to the desktop 1070, the mobile version offers 5-10% lower scores in benchmarks and games. However, compared to Maxwell mobile chips, the GTX 1070 laptops are roughly 65-75% faster than the older GTX 980M builds and about 120-130% faster than the GTX 970M models.

Nvidia GTX 1080 laptops

The GTX 1080 chips are built on the GP104 core, get 8 GB of DDR5 memory, have a clock speed of 1506 MHz (Boost up to 1733 MHz), a memory clock of 8008 MHz, 320 GB/s memory bandwidth, 2560 CUDA cores and a TDP of around 150 W. Some laptops offers dual GTX 1080 chips in SLI, while other get factory-overclocked variants.

Expect GTX 1080 notebooks to start at around $2200. If you’re interested in the thinner and more compact variants built on GTX 1080 Max-Q graphics, like the Asus ROG Zephyrus and Acer Triton series, check out this detailed article over here, as well as our post on the best thin-and-light gaming laptops of the moment.

The Mobility GTX 1080 chips offers very similar scores in benchmarks and games to the desktop GTX 1080 solution. On the other hand, compared to the Maxwell mobile chips, the mobile GTX 1080 is miles ahead, showing 125% bumps over the GTX 980M chip and 180% improvements over the GTX 970M. SLI variants are of course even faster, and these are recommended for high-frequency UHD screens and multi-monitor setups. The single 1080 notebooks will handle most modern games at UHD resolutions and High graphics settings.

That’s about it for now, but like I said earlier, we’re constantly updating the list.

Bottom point, Nvidia Pascal is a major update for gaming laptops. GTX 1080 machines are now capable of running most titles on 4K resolution with high details, and if you want ultra-details or want to power multiple monitors at once, you can opt for the few solution with dual SLI GTX 1080 chips.

GTX 1070 models are still faster than the high-end GTX 980M notebooks of the previous generation, while selling for less. They offer excellent gaming performance on FHD resolutions and will be able to run most titles on UHD panels as well, but you’ll have to trim down details to medium.

Last but not least, if you don’t have $1500 or more to spend on a gaming laptop and still want something capable of running modern games on FHD resolutions, the Nvidia GTX 1060 laptops are the ones for you. They start at around $1300 and we’ve covered them in another post.

    This list is missing the Asus GL702VS. It has a 1070, 120hz FHD screen with Gsync, and is pretty thin and light for a 17" gaming laptop.

      Thanks Ryan, I've added it to the list. That's a great new laptop and unfortunately it's not available in my region yet. I'm pretty sure others would love to find more about it, so if you want to share some thoughts and pics with us, I'd gladly them in a dedicated article here on the site. Let me know if that sounds interesting and I'll get back to you on email.

    Please can you indicate with accuracy whether each laptop has a TN or an IPS panel, this is really important information! For example, man y of the 120hz panels are marketed as "IPS-like" but are in fact TN, so it would be helpful to have this clearly defined. Thanks again for the great list! :)

    There is no MSI GT83VR 6RF Titan Pro at all.
    MSI didn't release it yet and sadly there is no configuration with 4K display with G-Sync for this laptop.
