Nvidia announced at the CES that it will also release its GeForce RTX GPs for laptops. From January 29 there will be more than forty models on the shelves. Seventeen of them will be equipped with a Max-Q variant.
Nvidia did not know the exact specifications of the GPU’s during the announcement. In the previous, ‘Pascal’ generation of laptop GPU’s, the manufacturer used the same chips for most GPUs as the desktop, but with lower clock speeds not to generate too much heat in a laptop chassis. According to earlier rumors Nvidia would do so again with this generation. It concerns laptop versions of the RTX 2080, 2070 and the RTX 2060 announced in the same presentation.
The manufacturer also announced that there is a Max-Q version of every laptop gpu. These chips develop less heat due to lower clock speed and are therefore intended for thin laptops. Nvidia also announced that the MSI GS65 will get at least an RTX 2080-GPU, with which more than 60fps must be achieved in Battlefield V, with raytracing enabled.
The first laptops with RTX video card have already been announced. Dell foresees its thin Alienware m15 and m17 for example of the new GPU’s and the HP Omen 15 will also be provided. Acer, Asus, Gigabyte, Lenovo, MSI, Razer, and Samsung will also supply laptops with the RTX GPS.
