Today, during CES 2021, Nvidia’s senior VP of GeForce, Jeff Fisher, unveiled its new generation of mobile GeForce RTX processors, bringing the Ampere RTX 3080, 3070, and 3060 GPUs to gaming laptops.
The company provided a quick look at three laptops across the RTX range, starting with the Lenovo Legion Slim 7, powered by the new RTX 3060, which clocks in at 1.3x the power of the PS5. At 1080p, the laptop can reportedly achieve an average of 90 FPS on Ultra settings “across multiple popular graphics-intensive games.”

The next step up comes in the form of the ASUS G15, which is equipped with a 1440p panel and RTX 3070 mobile GPU. Nvidia states that it’s average performance at 1440p is 90 FPS. Finally, Nvidia’s high-end example is the Alienware m15, which comes packed with the RTX 3080 mobile GPU and 16GB of GDDR6 memory, and is reportedly capable of delivering over 100 FPS on ultra settings across a range of games.
Nvidia notes that this is the company’s biggest launch ever; those examples are just three of more than 70 ‘gaming & studio’ laptop models that are in production. The hardware will be available from January 26, with a starting price of $999 for the RTX 3060 models. The Alienware m15 will be priced at $1,999, with an Intel i7 CPU.
The laptop range will feature the third generation of MAX-Q technology, including Dynamic Boost 2.0 – an AI that automatically routes power around your system – as well as WhisperMode 2.0 for thermal management and resizable BAR. Naturally, these being RTX-powered machines, DLSS will also be supported for applicable games.
The presentation also noted that the devices are the lowest latency esports laptops thanks to Nvidia’s Reflex technology. Average latency stats were provided for Overwatch (20ms), Rainbow Six Siege (17ms), Valorant (16ms), and Fortnite (17ms), with all games running at well over 250 FPS on a Razer Blade laptop at 1080p.
