One more announcement from NVIDIA at CES today is the expected announcement of
new GeForce RTX 40-series laptops, which are expected to arrive next month.
These promise a new class of flagship performance at the high-end, while the
midrange is said to trounce last-generation flagship systems using a fraction of
RTX 4090 and RTX 4080: A New Class of Flagship Laptops
The Ada architecture has also enabled a new class of enthusiast laptops that are
the world’s fastest. Gamers can play on three 4K monitors for surround gaming at
60 frames per second — enough to power a professional-grade driving simulator.
Creators can use the NVIDIA Omniverse™ platform for photorealistic, 3D virtual
world building at 4K with fully simulated physics, lighting and materials.
Streamers can livestream games at 4K 60 fps with AV1 encoding to Discord, and
Ada’s new dual encoders cut video export time in half. RTX 40 Series flagship
laptops start at $1,999 and will be available beginning Feb. 8.
RTX 4070, 4060, 4050 Laptops: Faster Than Last-Generation Flagship at
One-Third the Power
The new RTX 4070, 4060 and 4050 laptops are faster than the previous-generation
flagship model, using as little as one-third the GPU power. They deliver 80 fps,
1440p ultra-gaming and transform creation processes like rendering scenes in
Blender, which used to take two and a half hours, to just 10 minutes. RTX 4050
laptops start at $999 and will be available beginning Feb. 22.
