NVIDIA Announces GeForce RTX Notebooks Available January 29

NVIDIA today announced GeForce RTX 20-series mobile GPUs coming to as many as 40 new notebook models with hundreds of sub-variants. 17 of these 40 are Max-Q certified. Max-Q is an NVIDIA initiative in aggressive power and thermal management that strives to bring desktop-like gaming performance to a thin notebook. CEO Jen-Hsun held up a GIGABYTE-branded Aero notebook with RTX 2080 Mobile GPU, which is faster than a desktop powered by a GTX 1080, and 6K RED video editing. Also shown is a Max-Q notebook based on the RTX 2060 Mobile, which is faster than a desktop GTX 1070.

I Wonder on specs (if they are cut down at all). Also no mention of ti (just 208x,207x,206x). That's a big ol die for a "max-Q" Design.

That "60+ fps on Battlefield 5 RTX ON" cracks me up. When was the last time you heard someone boast they can do 60 fps in single game out there ?

RTX is pre-baked technology, I'm waiting for RTX 21x0 or 30x0 series.

I admit i was just egging him on to see what he said. People cannot be satisfied these days, it reminds me of when hardware T&L came out because I also Don't think many people realize RT (who cares what Nvidia calls it) is a whole new way to render graphics (depending on implementation...sigh dice) and isn't hair-works or something like that. Only in 2018 can people complain that Raytracing @ 1080p ~ 4K@60 depening on your card isn't good enough and booo i want a 4K120 Card and a display to go with it for $99.

Which we used to call simply "M" in the past.
But "M" doesn't justify outrageous pricing as well as "Max-Q" does.

And putting basically desktop GPUs into notebooks was a great move.
