Nvidia has announced that the Nvidia RTX 30 series GPUs, the latest series of graphics processors by the company, are finally coming to laptops. The announcement comes at the same time as Intel’s launch of the 11th generation Core H series CPUs for high performance laptops. Nvidia states that the range begins with the RTX 3050 and 3050 Ti GPUs, showing a clear intent of focus on the more affordable end of gaming laptops. Nvidia further says that these laptops will be priced onward of $799, and announcements will be made by Acer, Asus, Alienware, Dell, Gigabyte, HP, Lenovo, MSI and Razer in the coming months.
The Nvidia RTX 30 series laptops will get the company’s new Ampere GPU architecture, which will feature dedicated Ray Tracing and Tensor cores to offer clear performance benefits in these machines over their predecessors. Nvidia claims that RTX 30 series on laptops will be “twice as fast as previous generation systems”, and will apparently be good enough across the series to deliver consistent, full HD gaming at sustained 60fps frame rates – even in newer generation titles such as Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War.
The Nvidia RTX 30 series also importantly brings DLSS to gaming laptops – Nvidia’s Deep Learning Super Sampling technology that makes use of the Tensor cores to apply machine learning and upgrade visual quality. Alongside games that already use DLSS, Nvidia states that the technology will be available for creators to use in the content they make. The new GPUs also have what Nvidia is calling the ‘Reflex Low Latency’ mode. Specifically geared at esports players, this mode will reportedly offer consistent visuals at sub-25ms latency and over 144fps frame rates – things that may particularly come handy in competitive esports gaming. Nvidia says this will be available from RTX 3050 Ti equipped laptops.
For creators, Nvidia further commits up to 75 percent lesser encoding times for 8K workflows thanks to the new Tensor cores, which will be unveiled by OEMs as part of the Nvidia Studio series laptops. These will also come with at least 16GB of VRAM, to have plenty of graphics memory to help take on intense video workflows. Product announcements of laptops featuring the new Nvidia RTX 30 series GPUs are set to start soon.
