Phrase on the GPU grapevine is that Nvidia will unleash its next-gen GeForce RTX graphics cards for laptops round CES time, that means January 2019.
The mobile-targeted line-up will probably be headed up by the RTX 2080 Mobility together with a Max-Q spin on that GPU.
Then Nvidia could have the RTX 2070 Mobility, once more with a Max-Q model, adopted by the RTX 2060 Ti Mobility and vanilla RTX 2060 Mobility. On the lower-end would be the RTX 2050 Ti Mobility and once more a vanilla RTX 2050.
All of those GPUs will apparently be launched when January rolls round, as talked about, apart from the flagship RTX 2080 Mobility choices which gained’t come till a ‘bit later’.
Keep in mind that that is very a lot hypothesis, and comes courtesy of an unnamed supply who spoke to Wccftech, so train some warning with these type of rumors.
Nonetheless, those that get pleasure from gaming on a transportable will probably be excited on the prospect of getting a brand new RTX 2080 GPU earlier than too lengthy – even when this top-of-the-range mannequin gained’t be arriving to start with, if all that is right.

Nvidia’s Max-Q know-how includes optimizing the GPU when it comes to its design and power-efficiency, that means that laptop computer producers can match a robust graphics answer into a comparatively thin and light gaming notebook.
Lastly, Wccftech additionally clarifies that the nameless supply didn’t explicitly identify each considered one of these GPUs as being a part of the RTX collection, so there’s a risk that decrease tier fashions may nonetheless be branded GTX playing cards slightly than RTX.
So sure, this one is actually slightly up within the air, but when we’re getting near launch – or at the very least an unveiling from Nvidia – there will probably be extra rumors alongside quickly, little doubt, to assist make clear the precise image on the cell GPU entrance.
