Nvidia announced today that its RTX 30-series graphics cards will come to mobile laptops at the end of January. They made the announcement during their presentation at the Consumer Electronics Show.
VR-ready laptops with the RTX 3060 GPU launch on February 2nd and start at $999 USD.
Laptops with the RTX 3070 and 3080 launch on January 26th and start at $1299 and $1999, respectively.
The news comes as many potential buyers have been unable to get their hands on the RTX 30-series GPUs due to low stock everywhere. That applies to both the Founders Edition and third party GPUs using Nvidia’s ‘Ampere’ architecture.
At CES, Nvidia called the upcoming launch its biggest laptop launch ever. Over 70 different VR-ready laptops from all manufacturers are in on the launch.
The company is making bold performance claims, saying that the RTX 3060 $999 options are more powerful than the PlayStation 5 or previous RTX 2080 SUPER laptops which launched at $2000.
