Amidst a slew of announcements, NVIDIA announced the GeForce RTX 2060. However, that wasn’t the only announcement. RTX laptops will also be available from all major OEMs, and guess what, a total of 40 models in the coming days. Yes, forty RTX laptops with raytracing and DLSS support coming right after CES.
Two laptops were featured during the keynote. The first one was the MSI G65 Stealth. This gaming laptop is supposed to be faster than a desktop packing a GTX 1080 graphics card and 2X faster than the PS4 Pro with 30% of its volume. Furthermore, with DLSS enabled NVIDIA claims you can run Battlefield V at 4K with raytracing at the medium preset to get that silky smooth 60 FPS performance.
The second one is a budget offering. The Acer Predator Triton 500 loaded with the newly announced GeForce RTX 2060. This notebook is speculated to be faster than a desktop GTX 1070 PC and 1.6X beefier than Sony’s PS4 Pro. Just like the MSI G65, NVIDIA promises 60 FPS in Battlefield V with RTX enabled but I’m pretty sure that it’ll be 1440p and not 4K.
For a limited time, gamers will receive both Battlefield V and Anthem with a qualifying purchase of a GeForce RTX 2080 laptop, or receive either one of the two titles with a qualifying purchase of a GeForce RTX 2070 or RTX 2060 laptop. This bundle promotion is available in most regions around the world.
GeForce RTX-powered laptops will be available starting Jan. from the world’s top OEMs, including Acer, Alienware, ASUS, Dell, Gigabyte, HP, Lenovo Legion, MSI, Razer, and Samsung. They will also be available from local OEMs and system builders, including Aftershock, CyberPower PC, Hasee, Maingear, Mechrevo, Mouse, Origin PC, PC Specialist, Scan, Schenker, Terrans Force, and Thunderbolt.
The prices will of-course be pretty steep as expected, but well no surprise there. Anyway, that’s it from NVIDIA’s CES keynote. Cheers!
