Almost five months after making its debut for desktop PCs, NVIDIA's latest RTX 20 Series graphics chips are ready for the limelight in laptops. Jensen quickly discussed some of the killer G-SYNC monitors that have either launched recently or will be debuting at CES - like the massive HP Omen X Emperium - and he also revealed that NVIDIA has begun testing and validating non-G-SYNC enabled, Adaptive-SYNC monitors, i.e. Freesync monitors, and that NVIDIA will be supporting those displays beginning with a driver update slated to arrive on January 15.
At the same time, Huang unveiled GeForce RTX 2080-, RTX 2070-, and RTX 2060-based laptops which were claimed to be 'twice as fast as a PlayStation Pro'. These are going to be high-powered and therefore pretty expensive machines, but for players who want PC performance without actually having to commit to a full PC build, or those after portability, these machines mark a significant release. Of course, what that ultimately means is even more realistic and visually engrossing games. The platform also uses DLSS: an advanced AI technology that essentially reduces the workload necessary for a GPU to create crisp, smooth images.
Five months ago, Nvidia finally lifted the lid on their next generation of Turing RTX graphics cards, the GTX 1080-beating RTX 2070, the sort-of-but-not-quite-as-good-as-the-GTX-1080Ti RTX 2080 and the 4K monster that is the RTX 2080Ti. As a result, you can expect to enjoy a demanding, visually rich game like Battlefield V at over 60 frames per second at 2560 x 1440 on the RTX 2060.
A lot of titles already support these features including Hitman 2, Final Fantasy 15, Battlefield 5 and others - but there's plenty of upcoming games that also support the RTX series features including Anthem, which just had DLSS support confirmed on Nvidia's stage at CES. It was also revealed that GeForce RTX 2080 or RTX 2080 Ti buyers will get copies of both.
Which RTX graphics can you get in a laptop?
We look forward to putting the next wave of RTX 2060-powered systems through their paces this year, as well as see our pals at Tom's Hardware put it through their thorough benchmark tests.
