NVIDIA announces GeForce RTX 20 Series graphics chips for laptops

It'll cost $349, which is a little more expensive that xx60 cards are, but not bad considering it'll launch at a lower price than the 1070 when that much-loved card launched.

The main surprise of the event could be a new graphics card or a new lineup of mobility parts which were rumored days ago from this event. DLSS support isn't available in Battlefield V just yet, but that should arrive later this month alongside these new GPUs.

New GeForce RTX laptops will continue to support features like WhisperMode, which paces frame rates for AC-connected laptops to reduce heat and therefore fan noise, NVIDIA Battery Boost, which uses GeForce Experience to optimize performance for longer battery life, and of course G-SYNC.

Naturally, the 2060 offers a stripped-back take Nvidia's flagship GPUs, packing 1,920 CUDA cores compared to the 2,304 the RTX 2070 has on offer.




The RTX 2060 is coming incredibly soon - next week, in fact. If you're wondering what that means as far as gaming muscle goes, Nvidia says that the RTX 2060 is more powerful than last generation's GTX 1070 Ti.

The RTX 2060 features 240 tensor cores with 52 teraflops of performance, 6GB of GDDR6 RAM and 5 giga-rays of real-time ray tracing performance. If the quality is there, it stands to be particularly impressive stuff - and the same is true across the range of brands now incorporating GeForce RTX technology into their new machines. There is a Founders Edition and it looks pretty much identical to the RTX 2070 FE.

Laptops sporting GeForce RTX cards will be available starting January 29th from NVIDIA partners including Acer, Alienware, ASUS, Dell, Gigabyte, HP, Lenovo, MSI, Razer, and Samsung. We'll have to see what the RTX 2060 can really do when we get a chance to test it. On the other hand, those who will grab a 2080ti or 2080 will get both games to get them started on the road of RTX.
