The Geforce RTX 3060, which was also launched for desktop computers during the evening, is a 6 GB graphics card that, according to Nvidia, should be faster than any graphics circuit in today’s laptops. It will even beat the RTX 2080 Super, which until now has sat on the laptop throne. It should be roughly 30 percent faster than the graphics card in a Playstation 5 and be able to provide 90 frames per second when playing in 1080p.However, Nvidia states that it has worked closely with display and computer manufacturers to bring 1440p resolution to a wider front in the laptop segment. This is given that the two more powerful RTX 30 cards are built for friction-free gaming in that particular resolution; the laptop version of the RTX 3070 (8GB) is roughly 50 percent faster than the RTX 2070 card it replaces and should handle 90 fps at 1440p.
The flagship RTX 3080 for laptops can ramble with 16 GB and reach 100 fps at the same resolution. However, we see a break in the trend in the number of cuda cores, which were previously close to the desktop predecessors, with 6,144 in the RTX 3080 for laptops versus nearly 9,000 in the desktop version of the card. Simply put, this means that the laptop version of the RTX 3080 only offers a couple of hundred cores more than the desktop RTX 3070, which should give some indication of the performance levels of Nvidia’s top portable choice.
The first gaming laptops with RTX 30 graphics are expected to hit the market around January 26. In total, there are already over 70 different computer models from a variety of manufacturers to look forward to with Nvidia’s new graphics card.
