NVIDIA has announced the release of new high-performance video cards for the flagship models of gaming laptops. From now on, GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER and GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER. In addition, the chipmaker announced the launch of more than 100 high-performance laptop models in thin and light cases with modified versions of graphics accelerators in the Max-Q design with reduced frequencies and a thermal package.
All new products are based on the NVIDIA Turing architecture, which provides for the use of dedicated RT cores for hardware processing of ray tracing. The new video cards feature Dynamic Boost technology, which allows load reallocation between the laptop processor and GPU automatically. The line of video cards in the Max-Q design has also been updated, which significantly increases the energy efficiency of portable PCs by slightly reducing the frequency. When equipped with such graphics adapters, manufacturers are able to produce thinner and lighter devices with minimal power loss.
Another innovation was the introduction of improved technology for switching between discrete and integrated graphics Advanced Optimus. The models presented in the new line received high-performance GDDR6 video memory. In addition, the vendor has specially updated the power management system for the SUPER series.
In total, the current line of GeForce mobile GPUs includes 16 different video cards that differ in the number of CUDA cores, operating frequency and amount of memory, as well as heat dissipation. According to NVIDIA, the first laptops with a new generation of video cards will be available at retail starting from April 15, and in May, the range of models for which the SUPER series of graphics accelerators will be available will be expanded with more than 100 new models of various brands.
