Nvidia had a lot to announce as part of its CES 2023 live event. The chip maker, trying to bounce back after calling off its planned Arm purchase just under a year ago, announced a new laptop GPU family, the GeForce RTX 40 series.
Starting on February 8, the higher-end GeForce RTX 4090 and 4080 laptop GPUs will be available to buy in laptops from many of NVIDIA’s notebook partners. On February 22, the same will happen for the GeForce RTX 4070, 4060, and 4050 laptop GPUs.
These chips will offer up to three times the performance compared to the last generation of NVIDIA GeForce laptop chips. The higher-end 4080 and 4090 chips will also support features like DLSS 3 for faster FPS in PC games. The lower-end chips will offer performance at RTX 3080 levels with about one-third of that chip’s power, allowing those RTX 40 series chips to be used in thinner and lighter gaming laptops.
Speaking of DLSS support, NVIDIA also announced that its frame rate boosting tech is currently supported by over 250 games. Its new DLSS 3 technology is already supported by 17 games, including Portal with RTX, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Warhammer 40,000: Darktide, and more. Over 30 upcoming PC games will support DLSS 3, including Atomic Heart, Dakar Desert Rally, Marvel’s Midnight Suns, The Day Before, Warhaven, Witchfire, and more.
NVIDIA also announced its new PC desktop gaming graphics card, the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti. The starting price for this new card will be $799, and it will launch on January 5 from several third-party graphics card makers and PC gaming desktop builders.
