A teasing posted on Twitter by Nvidia about its tomorrow online event reveals some small information. The RTX 3000 for gaming laptops would be a big part of the celebrations.
© 01net.com CES 2021: Nvidia to launch three RTX Series 3000 for laptops, one with 16 GB of memory
Tomorrow, Tuesday, January 12 at 6 p.m., Nvidia is due to make its announcements at CES 2021. It will mainly be about the arrival of the GeForce RTX Series 30 in laptops for gamers to come by the end of the first trimester and the rest of the year. At least we hope so because while the 3D Ampere chips are as complicated to produce and find as their desktop counterparts, there aren’t likely to be many laptops to get their hands on in the first quarter.
Among the possible announcements, rumors point to the arrival of three graphics chips, probably dubbed GeForce RTX 3060, 3070, and 3080. They would take the place of their Super or classic counterparts in the machines to come, in the first half of the year. ‘year.
Will these be classic GeForce RTX and/or Max-Q models? Again, hallway noise suggests that only the GeForce RTX 3060 would be a classic model and that the 3070 and 3080 would be Max-Q models.
All are said to have GDDR6 video memory modules (and not GDDR6X like on desktop models ) and the 3080 could have 16GB, 60% more than its desktop counterpart. A figure which is more or less corroborated by a visual of the teaser published by Nvidia (that of the chip and 8 green squares surrounding it).
In addition to 3D cards, several technologies aimed at accelerating the passage of information between the CPU and GPU could also be presented. We think in particular of the use of the BAR ( Base Access Register ), a technology called SAM ( Smart Access Memory ) by AMD and introduced on its latest CPU and GPU platforms.
The talk titled GeForce RTX: Game On will be broadcast on Nvidia’s official YouTube and Twitch accounts and is open to everyone. See you from 6 p.m. tomorrow to follow them live and see what the GPU designer has in store for us for this first half of the year.
