RTX 30 series laptops

Nvidia’s RTX 30 series laptops are here. There’s now a huge number of incredible laptops that utilise the powerful yet compact hardware. Powerful Ampere architecture means that laptop gaming performance is faster than ever with RTX turned on.

Why you should upgrade to an Nvidia RTX 30 series laptop

Ampere Architecture:

RTX 30 series mobile graphics use the latest architecture with 3rd Generation Ray Tracing Cores, 2nd Generation Tensor Cores, and streaming multiprocessors. This means that Raytracing looks and plays better than ever. Nvidia DLSS improves performance by up to 60% and there’s a huge leap in performance over RTX 20 series.

Third Generation Max Q technology:

Max Q is Nvidia’s clever technology that allows them to put powerful GPUs inside thin, light and ultrapowerful laptops. Third Gen Max Q uses AI and new optimisation tools like Dynamic Boost 2.0 and Whispermode 2.0. Dynamic boost uses AI to carefully balance CPU, GPU and GPU memory power ensuring your laptop will run efficiently, with the best performance for the task at hand. Whisper mode allows you to choose the desired acoustic level and the laptop will do the rest to keep your fans perfectly quiet. Ideal if you also like to use your laptop at work or in the classroom.

Resizeable BAR Support:

This technology allows the CPU to access all of the GPU VRAM simultaneously, which can help to improve performance in certain games. You’ll get higher framerates without the need for more power usage.

Superfast displays:

Nvidia’s RTX 30 series mobile graphics can play games at higher FPS than ever before. To take advantage of this performance over half of the new GeForce RTX 30 Series laptops offer displays with a 240Hz or higher refresh rate. Perfect if you love shooters like CS: GO, Overwatch and Rainbow six Siege.
