As if releasing the latest GeForce GTX 1080 were not enough, Nvidia had released its new plethora of cards including its Pascal GPUs designed for laptops.

A few weeks ago, Nvidia had also released its Titan X card for desktop systems.

The graphics card developerh ad dropped its ‘M’ suffix which it uses to differentiate laptop and desktop graphics cards. As with before, technology for graphics in laptops cannot par those made for desktop computers.

The new Pascal cards are focused on laptops to provide a gaming experience similar with their desktop counterparts.

The company claimed that the new GPUs are up to 76 per cent faster than their Maxwell-based predecessors, but built with the same 16nm FinFET process. Each laptop card features the same GPU as its desktop counterpart.

Nvidia said that the new range will enable 4K resolution gaming on laptops at playable frame rates for the first time, and that notebooks with 1080p panels will be able to drive a 120Hz refresh rate if, for some reason, you have advanced robotic eyes and are able to detect such things.

Laptops featuring the new cards have already been announced, and most of the big gaming laptop manufacturers are promoting high-end systems with the latest technology, including MSI and Origin, to name but two.

Prosecutors had raided the house of the head of the company that operated the sunken Sewol ferry, which had lost 100 lives and still has 200 passengers missing from the original 476. According to local Yonhap News Agency in South Korea, Yoo Byung-un’s house had been raided. Yoo is the owner of the Chonghaejin Marine Co. Ltd. which operated the ferry.

According to history, Yoo Byung-un had been jailed for fraud in the early 1990s. Prosecutors had also exposed several misdemeanours of the company, including its difficult share structure.

The maritime disaster that involved hundreds of students on a field trip was indicated as the biggest maritime disaster in South Korea for over 21 years.

Local media highlighted that the Sewol ferry captain Lee Joon-seok had delayed evacuating the passengers of the ship and that they all fled before all passengers could escape the sinking vessel. However, stories from both survivors and crew members made it evident that some crew members remained, and gave their life, to shepherd passengers into safety boats and rescue.

Divers are now moving the bodies of the dead into a cabin in Jin Island where the ferry had been docked. Meanwhile, Lee and two other crew members were arrested and are accused of negligence and abandonment of duty.
