(Pocket-lint) Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs have revolutionized what you’d expect from a slim and stylish gaming laptop. Gone are the days of downloading games from the 90s because that was all a laptop could do.
Now, with a GeForce RTX 30-Series GPU in your laptop, you’ll be able to play the latest games anywhere in high definition and with the kind of graphic effects usually reserved for powerful desktop computers. Find out what makes these GPUs so great below.
RTX . Technology
Nvidia’s RTX technology is the world’s most advanced ray tracing platform and a suite of AI technologies, meaning you can enjoy the most accurate lighting in a full range of games. It simulates the behavior of light in the real world, producing life-like shadows, stunning reflections in windows and water, and entire scenes that are completely transformed with the most accurate light bounce.
You don’t need an expensive high-end desktop system to experience the benefits of ray tracing. The Acer Nitro 5 and Asus TUF 15 both feature the RTX 3050Ti and benefit from new ray tracing technology. This is a great indication of the progress Nvidia has made in laptop graphics.
RTX provides access to other Nvidia innovations, one of which has been getting a lot of attention lately: DLSS, or Deep Learning Super Sampling. This system uses the AI cores built into Nvidia’s GPUs to dramatically increase your gaming performance without compromising visual fidelity.
You can get a few dozen extra frames per second by enabling DLSS, which uses artificial intelligence to increase your screen resolution without putting too much strain on your existing graphics hardware. This is a performance boost at no additional cost; You get more out of the GPU already in your laptop. It’s the kind of performance boost that PC gamers crave, and it’s perfect for GeForce RTX 3050-equipped laptops, like the ASUS TUF 15 or Lenovo IdeaPad.
NVIDIA continues to push the laptop ecosystem forward with the inclusion of Advanced Optimus. You may remember the original Optimus, a technology that uses an NVIDIA GPU to display images but an integrated Graphics Processing Unit (IGP) to display them on screen. The Advanced Optimus is, well, advanced. Advanced Optimus automatically changes the GPU connected to the monitor depending on the workload.
That means gaming power when you need it, or battery life when you’re just browsing the web. It is automatic and does not require a restart to switch GPUs. Everything is working fine.
Incredibly low latency
Projecting high frame rates at stunning resolution is one thing, but if you’re particularly interested in online gaming, you know the importance of latency — the amount of time that elapses between mouse clicks and on-screen visual change. Latency is critical and can be the determining factor that separates victory from defeat in a competitive environment.
Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 30 series laptops can use Nvidia Reflex to keep system latency as low as possible and give GeForce gamers an edge over their competition. Reflex bypasses the graphics rendering queue and improves communication between the CPU and GPU. This results in lower latency, allowing for faster target acquisition and increased accuracy, resulting in more convincing results. Activate Reflex in a competitive game like Overwatch, Fortnite or Valorant and you’ll understand.
Get a laptop with a super powerful RTX 3070, like the MSI Katana GF66 or Lenovo Legion 5 and you’ll feel the difference, while the more powerful 3080 goes even further in the MSI GP66 Leopard and Asus Zephyrus.
These are just a few of the amazing benefits that the GeForce RTX 30 Series laptop offers, and there are plenty of other laptops available, with great offers. You can find the latest collection of Nvidia laptops here.
