NVIDIA Ampere Architecture Powers Record 70+ New GeForce RTX Laptops
Finally, today NVIDIA has announced the RTX 30 series laptop GPUs with 3rd Gen Max-Q Technology, offering up to 2x efficiency and performance never-seen-before.
Featuring the new NVIDIA Ampere architecture, these new graphics will be available on 70+ models at launch from various OEMs. These next-gen laptops, powered by GeForce® RTX™ 30 Series Laptop GPUs will start at $999 only.
It promises an increase in energy efficiency by up to 2x, said to accelerates performance dramatically, and introduces third-generation Max-Q technologies for thin and lightweight designs. NVIDIA says that these RTX 30 Series Laptop GPUs deliver stunning ray-traced gaming experiences in Cyberpunk 2077 and other top titles.
“After taking the desktop market by storm, our NVIDIA Ampere architecture is now powering the world’s fastest laptops,” said Kaustubh Sanghani, vice president and general manager of GeForce OEM at NVIDIA. “Nowhere does power efficiency matter more than in gaming laptops, a market that’s grown 7x in the past seven years. These new thin and light systems are based on our Max-Q technologies, where every aspect — CPU, GPU, software, PCB design, power delivery, thermals — is optimized for power and performance.”
As expected, NVIDIA has announced three new laptop GPUs with latest Ampere architecture:
- GeForce RTX 3060 delivers 90 frames per second on the latest games with ultra settings at 1080p. The RTX 3060 powered laptops will start at $999 and are faster than laptops featuring NVIDIA’s previous flagship GPU, GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER, which typically sells for $2,500.
- GeForce RTX 3070 is a 1440p gaming beast, delivering 90 frames per second with ultra settings at 1440p. The RTX 3070 powered laptops will start at $1,299 and are 50% faster than those equipped with the RTX 2070.
- GeForce RTX 3080 is NVIDIA’s new flagship laptop GPU. With up to 16GB of G6 memory, it powers the world’s fastest laptops for gamers and creators. It delivers 100+ frames per second with ultra settings at 1440p. Systems featuring the RTX 3080 will start at $1,999.
This indeed will be game-changing as even an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 GPU will be even more powerful than the last-gen flagship GPU. These new dedicated RT Cores delivers 2x the throughput of the previous generation, and new third-generation Tensor Cores, with up to 2x the throughput of their predecessors, to power NVIDIA DLSS, which accelerates performance.
The new laptops will also include new tools for gamers and creators, including NVIDIA Broadcast, which harnesses AI to turn any room into a home broadcast studio. On the other hand, the NVIDIA Reflex technology makes competitive games quicker reducing latencies, then you have GeForce Experience™, to capture and share videos, screenshots, and live streams with friends. Whereas with NVIDIA Studio you get support for acceleration and optimization of demanding creator apps.
NVIDIA has even taken care of eSports players as the gaming industry is heavily going towards eSports and over half of the new GeForce RTX 30 Series laptops will offer 240Hz or higher refresh rates. So, to give you the max frame rates, the upcoming flagship GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU is said to offer 240 frames per second across top titles like Overwatch, Rainbow Six, Valorant, and Fortnite.
Coming to the availability, these new GeForce RTX 30 Series GPU laptops will be available starting January 26th from the world’s top OEMs, including Acer, Alienware, ASUS, Gigabyte, HP, Lenovo, MSI and Razer.
They will also be available from local OEMs and system builders, including Aftershock, CyberPower PC, Digital Storm, Eluktronics, Falcon NW, Hasee, Maingear, Mechrevo, Mouse, Origin PC, PC Specialist, Scan, Schenker, Terrans Force, and Thunderobot, XOTIC PC. Pricing, configurations, and availability will vary among regions and partners.
