Nvidia’s Launches RTX Super graphics for the mobile platform
This week has been extremely busy with new mobile hardware releases and next-generation laptops for 2020 are well and truly here. With announcements from Intel and AMD it’s no surprise that Nvidia are now following suit with their own exciting launch.
We’ve had RTX series GPU’s in laptops for just over a year now and with the launch of RTX Super for desktop back in July, it was only a matter of time before the new and improved graphics tech arrived in a more portable form.
Nvidia Geforce thin and powerful laptops
GeForce RTX 2080 Super & RTX 2070 Super
At the top of the stack are the brand new RTX 2080 Super and RTX 2070 Super. These mobile versions are similar to the desktop versions and use the same Turing architecture and CUDA core counts. The smaller platform means there are variations in the TDP and clock speed but vendors are free to explore the 80W to 150W+ design. This means in the coming weeks we are going to be able to get our hands on some of the most powerful gaming laptops ever created.
There will also be Max-Q variants of the new RTX Super graphics which will be suitable for ultra-thin portable gaming laptops. Nvidia has been hard at work improving Max-Q models to enhance power efficiency and there are new features such as Dynamic Boost that allocates power between the GPU and CPU frame by frame, new low-voltage GDDR6 memory, Advanced Optimus technology which chooses either the GPU or integrated graphics for a given app and Nvidia’s new DLSS 2.0 which uses AI to help the GPU render pixels.
Nvidia is also reshuffling the more affordable end of the stack by releasing the 1650Ti. The GTX 1650Ti is different because it has no desktop variant and is made to fill a gap in the mobile graphics market. It redefines the original varied GTX 1650 and the GTX 1650 Ti is guaranteed to have 1024 CUDA cores as well as GDDR6 memory. Coupled with a slightly higher maximum TDP of 55W it’s said to have performance that rivals the GeForce GTX 1060.
With these new releases, it’s no surprise that we will also be waving goodbye to some of the slightly older mobile graphics options. Similar to when RTX super came to the desktop market, Nvidia is discontinuing the RTX 2080 and pushing the entire stack down. This push-down also removes the last-gen GTX 1050 replacing it with the GDDR6 GTX 1650.
Brand new laptops featuring Nvidia latest mobile technology
Unsurprisingly there are a massive number of new laptops being released over the coming weeks. Nvidia has confirmed over 100 new SKUs with the idea to give users more performance at every price point. We still have to wait a little longer to see official performance figures and reviews of these awesome machines, however, it is possible to have a sneak peek at what’s available before the full launch as Overclockers now have many of these revolutionary laptops available for preorder:
MSI GE66 Raider
This beautiful laptop is equipped with the latest Intel i9-10980HK processor which pairs perfectly with RTX 2080 Super Max Q graphics for outstanding performance. A 240hz display, 32GB of memory, large battery and Mystic RGB lighting complete this laptop as the perfect portable gaming powerhouse.
Gigabyte Aorus 17X
This beast combines the 8 core overclockable i9-10980HK with the graphical power of the RTX 2080 Super for unbeatable mobile performance. The advanced Windforce cooling system means 100% load CPU & GPU load can be maintained simultaneously without excess noise. There is plenty of fast onboard storage and the aggressive design is finished off with a super-thin bezel 240Hz display.
Gigabyte Aero 15
The all new RTX Super graphics aren’t just reserved for gaming laptops and there are also machines available aimed at the professional market. With an Intel i7-10750H and RTX 2070 Super Max Q graphics this light and thin laptop packs a punch. Every single unit is calibrated for peak 3D performance, colour accuracy and has the power you need to render video, effects and high res files faster and with ease. No stutter, no chug and no overheating for no compromise computing.
