RTX on the laptop
Nvidia announced a new generation of Ampere laptops. These laptops are twice as efficient and feature a 3rd generation Max-Q design for thin and light gaming notebooks. Nvidia claimed that every aspect of the laptop was designed with thermal performance in mind. The company is using AI to power these new notebooks.
Dynamic Boost 2.0 uses AI to offload the power of CPU, GPU, and CPU memory that manages performance per frame, according to Nvidia. This results in the greatest increase in performance than ever before.
There is a newly revised Whisper Mode 2.0, which uses the AI algorithm to deliver better acoustics with the best possible performance.
With the Resizable Bar, games can now access the entire memory of the GPU for even better rendering.
“Max-Q reinvented the gaming laptop,” said Nvidia. Today’s Max-Q is half as big and half as heavy, but offers ten times more performance than four years ago.
The new RTX 3060 laptops start at $ 999 and offer 1.3 times the performance of Sony’s PlayStation 5, according to Nvidia.
For 1440p gamers, upgrade to the $ 1,299 RTX 3070 notebooks.
The flagship laptops RTX 3080 deliver 100 FPS when the RTX is switched on.
For professionals, Nvidia also announced new Nvidia studio laptops with RTX-based AI that transform the way artists work by performing complex edits such as: B. Automatically converting video from landscape to portrait while keeping the action in the foreground and center.
Nvidia also shows how AI can animate faces using only audio.
As of January 26, more than 70 laptops will be available for gaming and professionals, the company said.
