They’re lighter. They’re faster. And, in the words of one reviewer, they offer “a smorgasbord of awesome.” The new RTX laptops are here — more than 40 of them — and so are rave reviews.
We announced recently at CES that the world’s top manufacturers are bringing a record number of new laptops based on our revolutionary Turing GPU architecture to market.
They’re powered by NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs that fuse next-generation shaders with real-time ray tracing and AI to blur the line between movies and gaming with cinematic-quality rendering. Don’t take our word for it.
Here are some highlights from this week’s reviews in the North American press, mirroring reviews from outlets worldwide as RTX laptops become available everywhere.
“Surprising no one, the RTX 2080 Max Q in the new Asus Zephyrus blows past other gaming laptops when it comes to game performance.”
“The RTX 20-series for laptops feels like a win.”
“The biggest improvement is the availability of a 2080 Max-Q, which unlocks a level of performance potential that was previously reserved to only desktops and eight-pound laptops. The fact you can now enjoy it on hardware as thin as the Zephyrus S GX701 is awesome.”
“But the real treat is playing new titles like Shadow of the Tomb Raider and Battlefield V, the latter of which is one of the few titles that can take advantage of the ray tracing capabilities built into new RTX GPUs.”
