According to the latest report released by DigiTimes.com, gaming notebooks with NVIDIA'S GeForce GTX 1050 is likely to show up at CES 2017 this coming Jan. 5-8 2017. As industry sources revealed, NVIDIA is expected to announce its entry-level GeForce GTX 1050 GPU for notebooks.

The source added that this could "trigger a new wave of a price war in the gaming notebook market in 2017."

So who will be the players in this supposed price war of gaming notebooks which will be powered by NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050? Leading computer manufacturers like Asustek Computer, Gigabyte Technology, Micro-Star International (MSI) and Lenovo were named to attend the upcoming event to showcase their own versions of gaming notebooks.

The report also revealed that Intel's new processor H series Kaby Lake CPUs will be used to power these high-performing gaming notebooks. However, additional specifications like the motherboard version, RAM and storage capacity were not revealed.
