NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX set to power 40+ laptop models starting later this month

NVIDIA is touting some pretty impressive numbers as a number of new laptops will be powered with the RTX GPU later this month.

According to a new press release, over 40+ laptops that will carry the GeForce RTX video cards are set for release later this month. These laptops will carry a new design called Max-Q, which are thinner and sleeker than previous laptop models.

NVIDIA says that the GPU will come with a number of new features. They include WhisperMode, which will have laptops run quieter during gaming, a new battery feature that will enable laptops to have double the battery life, and NVIDIA G-SYNC, which will enable refresh rates of up to 144 Hz in select models.

“Laptops are the fastest growing gaming platform — and just getting started,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. “The world’s top OEMs are using Turing to bring next-generation console performance to thin, sleek laptops that gamers can take anywhere. Hundreds of millions of people worldwide — an entire generation — are growing up gaming. I can’t wait for them to experience this new wave of laptops.”

NVIDIA needs some good news. Their stock hasn’t been doing well in recent weeks, halving in value since peaking on October 1st. This may be due to the cryptocurrency trade underperforming due to the craze dying down, as well as the ongoing trade war between the United States and China.

There are also rumors that NVIDIA may be working on a new graphic card series. While the RTX 20 series cards focus on RTX ray-tracing technology, these new graphic cards may also focus more on turing shaders.

OEM’s such as Alienware, Acer, ASUS, Dell, Razer, Samsung and others will offer GeForce RTX laptops starting on January 29. Those who purchase a GeForce RTX 2070 laptop will receive Anthem and Battlefield 5 as part of a bundle package for a limited time.
