In a recent news, NVIDIA reports that they are going to hold a press conference on January 12, 2021 for announcing their new mobile series graphics then. The tech brand didn’t clarify whether the announcement in the event will address the launch of the desktop or mobile graphics cards.
But, if the hints are anything to take on, it is likely that NVIDIA will announce their next-generation mobile GPUs first since there has been consistent leaks surrounding the GPU release around.
The reports surrounding the launch of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Mobile series surfaced in October of last year when the GA104 GPU’s picture emerged. The GPU at that time was a mobile graphics card, which astonished the tech enthusiasts because there were no launch of a desktop graphics card surfacing at the same time.
The launch of the three NVIDIA SKUs including GeForce RTX 3080, GeForce RTX 3070, and GeForce RTX 3060 is set to launch pretty soon. The first two of the chipsets will likely feature the GA104 GPU but the device doesn’t have all the exact configurations sorted out.
Reports further suggest that these graphics cards will be integrated with 8GB GDDR6 memory. The RTX 3060 is going to sport the GA106 GPU with the 192-bit memory bus with 6GB GDDR6 memory.
All of these graphics cards will launch in multiple variants including the Max-P and Max-Q variants. The Max-Q variant is likely going to be part of several upcoming devices and will be highly optimized for their cooling solutions.
The reports from Dutch notebook company, SKIKK suggest that the GeForce RTX 3060 laptops will be available soon for a starting price of 1699 EUR. The ones integrated with RTX 3070 GPUs will likely start from a price of 1999 EUR. But, the much-awaited flagship RTX 3080 GPU will be available for 2699 EUR and above. These are likely going to be integrated in the 15-inch and 17-inch laptops.
Aside from the graphics card, all of these upcoming launches will be featuring the 10th Gen Core Comet Lake CPUs (either Core i7-10875H or 10870H). Since the availability of the Tiger Lake-H is not available at the moment, there are chances that the devices will incline towards the chipsets that are available.
