Here are the new Nvidia graphics chips for our 2021 laptops. RTX 3060, 3070 and 3080 are officially launched and they are immediately drawn in two versions. There is the grind classic – with high operating frequencies – and the low consumption version, called Max-Q at Nvidia, which turbines less quickly because of its lower appetite in terms of Watts.
While the classic grinds will be mostly in thick machines or cut to stay at home, the Max-Q versions, they will be found in ultraportables 13 or 14 inches. Or the ultra-thin 15-inch machines, in which the new Intel Core H35 chips could also take place. Clearly, gaming machines that can be easily slipped into a backpack to go out and play.
Nvidia assures that RTX 3000 machines can be found from around $ 1,000.
Asus, Acer, Dell and MSI have already upgraded their ranges in this direction and all the PC announcements for CES 2021 available on 01net.com will prove it to you.
The price ranges announced, in detail
The price positioning advised by Nvidia is rather aggressive, with machines for playing in excellent conditions starting at $ 1,000, this is not quite the current trend, although we are getting closer. You usually have to make concessions to achieve this price, starting with the refresh rate of the panel. But, that too, Nvidia thought about it.
No matter the price laptops, all RTXs will be available on machines whose screen is refreshed at 120 Hz minimum, in the case of Full HD and QHD display.
Nvidia claims to have worked hard with panel manufacturers so that they can offer fast, even hyper-speedy screens to all of the brand’s partners. 120, 144, 165, 240 and even 360 Hz, expect it to blow your mind this year! Note also the arrival of Reflex technology in some portable PCs.
The pricing policy designed by Nvidia and its partners is as follows:
- The RTX 3060 will be found on machines from 1000 dollars. The promise here is 90 frames per second in Full HD with all the details down.
- The RTX 3070, it’s for PCs starting at $ 1,300, with screens capable of displaying Full HD or QHD. Here, we are aiming for 90 frames per second, in 1440p, with details on Ultra.
- The RTX 3080, finally, should be offered on machines starting at $ 2,000. There, it is the 1440p at more than 100 fps that is expected, still in Ultra and we can even hope to play comfortably in 4K as long as it is the most muscular version of the 3080 that is chosen.
The Max-Q standard redefined for ultra-gaming ultraportables
Like their desktop cousins, the RTX 3000 for laptops are built on the Ampere architecture and are equipped with the same computing units (CUDA Core), AI management (Tensor Core) and ray generation. tracing (RT Cores).
So you can enjoy the games with stunning light effects and enhanced graphics thanks to DLSS on your new laptop PC. gamer brand new as you already do on your desktop machine.
The arrival of fleas Max-Q, or low consumption, we recall, in addition to the classic versions, allows Nvidia to redefine for the third time the contours of its specifications and the technologies embedded in ultraportables or very fine gaming machines.
For example, the function Whisper Mode has been overhauled and improved. It still allows you to play without the ventilation panicking but, in its version 2.0, it would make better use of CPU and GPU resources.
New algorithms are responsible for determining the correct speed to adopt and apply to the chips so that the ventilation remains efficient while maintaining an acceptable level of nuisance, in accordance with your wishes.
The Dynamic Boost 2.0, also doped with AI, will take charge of playing the conductor and determining what are the best frequencies needed, frame by frame, in real time, and the fairest balance between video memory, CPU and GPU to keep games running at their best. Or that the graphic design processes are done with increased efficiency.
Finally, how can we not talk about BAR (Base Access Register)? This technology is present on both laptops with the new RTXs (classic and Max-Q) and will also be unlocked on desktop machines based on RTX 3000.
As we explained in our article on the all new RTX 3060, it is a process that allows the computer’s processor to directly access the video memory of the graphics card, without having to wait for the GPU. open the doors.
The gains? More images per second, of course! And additional efficiency in processing information without forgetting graphic effects that need significant CPU resources better supported.
The RTX 3000, technical details
Below, you will find the technical characteristics of the RTX 3000 for laptops, published on the Nvidia website. Unlike the previous generation, Nvidia does not make a sharp distinction between the classic models and the Max-Q.
However, we observe that there is two values frequencies in mode Boost. The first agree on models Max-Q and the second on models classics. The same way of thinking about consumption.
Thus, the low-power RTX 3080 should draw around 80 Watts in play and climb to 1249 MHz in Turbo mode, while its classic counterpart can devour more than 150 Watts and cross the 1710 MHz mark. .
Another observation, no GDDR6X memory here, while the RTX 3090 and RTX 3080 for desktop PCs have this type of module on board. We are satisfied with classic GDDR6.
Moreover, let’s stay in the radius of RAM, and note that the RTX 3080 can be allocated 8 GB or 16 GB of memory on the most prestigious laptop configurations. Its counterpart for desktop, let us remember, only has 10 GB of GDDR6X memory. Nvidia increases the deal by 60%, that’s impressive.
We can’t wait to see all the machines equipped with these new graphics chips in action. They will be coupled with AMD or Intel processors, as we said. It’s a safe bet that Nvidia has a few weapons in reserve, to draw in case AMD releases GPUs for laptops capable of overshadowing it. Not to mention Intel, whose first GPUs dedicated to gaming are due to arrive this year, both on our desktops and laptops.
