That the RTX 3000 series would come to our laptops was just a matter of time and now it’s finally time, impressive performance.
Nvidia has now announced that Geforce RTX 3080, RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 will be available on laptops and this is possible thanks to Dynamic Boost 2.0. By using AI-controlled algorithms, the performance profile of each graphics card and laptop is adjusted as needed.
The system will be able to switch between loading the processor, graphics memory and the graphics card to get the best possible performance without too much heat generation or energy consumption.
Nvidia has also worked with just the heat to keep the temperature down in various ways and they have, among other things, worked with the fans to work at lower speeds to keep the sound level down but still cool down the graphics card.
But the most important thing for many is probably how the graphics card performs in games and this is something Nvidia has presented. If you choose Geforce RTX 3080 Max-Q, you should undoubtedly be able to handle 1440p at over 100 FPS if you run graphics settings on Ultra, exactly which game titles Nvidia tested for this result has not been revealed.
If you feel that the RTX 3070 Max-Q is enough instead, you can still handle 1440p, but then around 90 FPS on Ultra, if you compare this with the RTX 2070 Max-Q, this should be 50 percent better.
Last but not least, we have the RTX 3060 Max-Q which has to settle for 1080p but around 90 FPS and here Nvidia compares this performance with what the Playstation 5 offers, so maybe not much to be impressed with.
The first laptops with the new RTX 3000 Max-Q cards will go on sale on January 26 and prices will of course vary, but according to Nvidia, RTX 3080 Max-Q laptops will start from around SEK 21,000 while RTX 3060 Max-Q starts from 10 500 kronor.
