RTX 40 Laptop GPU not getting SUPER update any time soon
NVIDIA is not expected to launch GeForce laptop GPU update in the first quarter, XMG says.
A blog post on the XMG website states that the company expects no changes to their gaming laptop portfolio in the near future. As per the post, it is not expected that the first quarter will bring any SUPER variants to the mobile lineup. In the medium term, NVIDIA’s current offering of RTX 40 Laptop GPU series, which currently comprises 5 models and numerous TGP variants, is not expected to continue to expand.
Laptops with new NVIDIA graphics cards are not planned in the near future
Neither XMG nor SCHENKER plan to introduce laptops with NVIDIA GPUs other than those currently known and available during the first quarter; even minor updates, such as increased VRAM, are not slated. Graphics chips based on the Ada Lovelace architecture may remain the most recent NVIDIA offerings even in the medium term.
In the desktop PC sector, there is already speculation about possible “SUPER” or “Ti” models, while the laptop GPU rumour mill remains comparatively quiet.
YouTuber Jarrod’s Tech was quick to spot this article. This reviewer is close to XMG and usually gets laptops in advance for testing. It is plausible that this means that XMG does not have advanced review plans in place for updated RTX 40 laptops, simply because there are none. At least not the so-called SUPER models.

This, of course, does not mean XMG is not planing new laptops. Intel will soon launch its 14th Gen Core-HX (Raptor Lake Refresh) series and Core 100H (Meteor Lake-H) both should be paired with discrete GPUs options. However, earlier leaks have shown that Intel’s upcoming series will be paired with existing RTX 40 Laptop GPUs.
In fact, the XMG blog post also mentions this update; however, the company cannot ‘confirm nor deny’ for obvious reasons that the launch of HX series will be covered by the new XMG series. Furthermore, it mentions AMD’s upcoming Hawk Point update, which is new variant of the Phoenix series with Zen4/RDNA3 architectures. Since such ‘minor updates’ did not require new motherboard design, the company expects easy integration into their existing products design.
XMG doesn’t plan to use a Radeon RX 7600M XT discrete GPU in their gaming series, but their sister company Tuxedo, which makes Linux-based systems, will have one. Unfortunately, there is no mention of a possible Radeon RX 7900M gaming laptop from XMG. This is the latest high-end RDNA3 discrete GPU that has been announced and released just recently.
