NVIDIA has just announced it will host a press event on January 12th. The company is expected to announce its GeForce RTX 30 mobile graphics cards for next-generation laptops.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Mobile incoming
On January 12, just a day after CES 2021 officially starts, NVIDIA will host a press conference on upcoming GeForce RTX gaming technology. The company is expected to talk about its mobile GeForce RTX 30 series for upcoming AMD Cezanne (Ryzen 5000) and Intel Comet Lake and Tiger Lake CPUs.
NVIDIA may also reveal its GeForce RTX 3060 12GB at the event, which is set to launch by the end of January. The new GA106-based model is expected to rival AMD Radeon RX 6700 series which are also set to debut next month (possibly even at CES, where AMD has a conference).
NVIDIA RTX 30 Mobile series is to include RTX 3080, RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 models. The first two SKUs are to feature GA104 GPU, while the latter is believed to feature GA106 GPU, just like the desktop variant.
AMD Ryzen 5000H series CPUs are to be offered with NVIDIA high-end GeForce RTX 3070/3080 graphics cards this time around. Intel, on the other hand, Intel will be offering RTX 30 mobile graphics with its Comet Lake-H series at launch and Tiger Lake-H35 series (the quad-core variants). The 11th Gen Tiger Lake-H with 8 cores is not expected to debut in the first quarter.
NVIDIA has also other GeForce RTX models in development, such as RTX 3080 Ti, which is now set to launch in February. This is a new 20GB model that would compete with Radeon RX 6900 XT and RX 6800 XT graphics cards that were released over the past few weeks.
Update: NVIDIA confirmed the event will be presented by Jeff Fisher is senior vice president of NVIDIA’s PC business,
