NVIDIA GeForce RTX SUPER Gaming Laptops Unleashed!

NVIDIA just unleashed GeForce RTX SUPER gaming laptops, as part of over 100 new designs featuring new Max-Q technologies!

Here is what you need to know about the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX SUPER gaming laptops!

 

Over 100 NVIDIA GeForce Gaming Laptops Unleashed!

Amidst the COVID-19 crisis, NVIDIA is introducing over 100 laptop designs from every major OEM out there, offering both GeForce GTX graphics starting at $699, and GeForce RTX graphics starting at $999.

In light of the new trend of working from home, NVIDIA is pushing the tagline – Worker By Day, Warrior By Night.

The new GeForce RTX and GeForce GTX gaming laptops will be available worldwide starting in the week of April 15, with more in May 2020.

 

NVIDIA GeForce RTX SUPER Gaming Laptops Unleashed!

In addition to new GeForce RTX and GeForce GTX gaming laptops, NVIDIA is also introducing new GeForce RTX SUPER gaming laptops for the first time.

With RTX 2080 SUPER and RTX 2070 SUPER options, they promise to deliver up to 25% faster gaming performance than the original GeForce RTX 20-series GPUs. This is what the new line-up looks like :

 

NVIDIA GeForce RTX SUPER Gaming Laptop Specifications

The new gaming laptops will be using the same RTX 2080 SUPER and RTX 2070 SUPER GPUs as their desktop brethren, but with slightly different specifications. Check them out in this comparison :

 

New Max-Q Technologies

NVIDIA is offering these new Max-Q technologies for all new 2020 GeForce RTX SUPER, GeForce RTX and GeForce GTX gaming laptops :

  • Dynamic Boost
    – Intelligently and automatically balances power between the GPU and CPU on a per-frame basis, boosting overall in-game performance.
    – Dynamic Boost is automatic, adaptive and always working to deliver more performance without increasing system power consumption. 
  • Low-Voltage GDDR6
    – NVIDIA worked with its memory partners to increase memory efficiency while delivering high performance with new lower voltage GDDR6 memory. 
  • Advanced Optimus
    – A breakthrough display innovation that delivers long battery life and immersive, stutter-free gameplay from NVIDIA G-SYNC technology.
    – Advanced Optimus controls which GPU is driving the display and intelligently determines the right GPU for the right workload at the right time, dynamically switching on the fly without needing a system reboot.
  • Next-Generation Regulator Efficiency
    – Next-generation voltage regulators help optimise system design so the GPU runs more efficiently while delivering higher overall performance. 
  • Deep Learning Super Sampling 2.0
    – Powered by dedicated AI processors on RTX GPUs called Tensor Cores, DLSS 2.0 is an improved deep learning neural network that boosts frame rates while generating beautiful, sharp images for games.
    It boosts a game’s performance headroom while maximizing ray-tracing settings with increased output resolution and extending battery life by up to 20 percent. 

NVIDIA promises that these new Max-Q technologies will double efficiency over previous designs :

A few months after launching the RTX SUPER family of graphics cards, NVIDIA has finally unleashed the GTX SUPER series!

GeForce Product Manager Justin Walker briefed us on both cards in an exclusive pre-launch briefing, which we prepared for you here, including a short Q&A session :

 

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX SUPER Cards

NVIDIA announced two models, both using the same NVIDIA TU116-300 GPU, which powers the GTX 1660.

They promise to offer a significant performance boost over existing Turing-based GTX cards, with these changes :

From what NVIDIA has revealed, we believe the GTX 1660S will replace the GTX 1660.

The GTX 1650S, on the other hand, will slide in above the existing GTX 1650 as the GTX 1650 Ti that some suggested would be released this month.

How Fast Are The GTX SUPER Cards?

Both GTX SUPER cards are targeted at 1080p gaming, with the GTX 1660 SUPER targeted at those who want all the bells and whistles turned on.

Here is a quick and dirty performance comparison provided by NVIDIA, showing the GTX 1660 SUPER delivering up to 50% better performance than the Pascal-based GTX 1060.

The GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER offers an even bigger boost in performance for esports gamers – up to 2X better than the GTX 1050.

 

NVIDIA GTX SUPER Price + Availability

Both GeForce GTX SUPER cards will only be available from NVIDIA board partners. There will be NO Founders Edition for either cards.

The 1660 SUPER has a starting price of US$229, and is available starting 29 October 2019 from NVIDIA board partners.
