Nvidia has just announced some important products updates at CES 2022, with new GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs for laptops and desktops. The company’s new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti laptop GPU will offer 16GB of GDDR6 memory on gaming and Studio laptops starting at $2,499, and Nvidia promises better performance than its desktop Titan RTX GPU.

Nvidia also announced a more affordable RTX 3070 Ti mobile GPU for laptops starting at $1,499, and consumers can expect up to 70 percent faster performance than RTX 2070 Super laptops. Overall, Nvidia expects its PC partners to release more than 160 gaming and Studio laptops powered by GeForce RTX GPUs which should appeal to both hardcore gamers and creative professionals.

“With the latest RTX GPUs, these laptops are on average 7x faster for 3D rendering than the latest MacBook Pro 16. They support more than 200 creative applications, as well as RTX-accelerated ray tracing, AI and NVIDIA’s high-performance video processor, making them the perfect tool for any creator workflow,” Nvidia explained today.

For desktop users, Nvidia also announced the affordable GeForce RTX 3050, which will be available on January 27 at $249. This new entry-level RTX GPU will come with 8GB of GDDR6 memory, second-generation RT cores, and third-generation Tensor cores for DLSS and AI, and it will let gamers play ray-traced games at over 60 frames per second.

Nvidia also continues to make big strides with its GeForce Now cloud gaming service, which is already available on LG 2021 WebOS Smart TVs and will soon be integrated into Samsung’s 2022 Smart TVs. Today, Nvidia announced that it has teamed up with AT&T in the US to offer a free six-month GeForce NOW Priority membership ($49.99 value) to AT&T customers with a 5G device on a 5G unlimited plan.
