NVIDIA has not officially commented on the release of next-generation laptop GPUs yet. In the meantime, a major leak has detailed the RTX 5050 through RTX 5090 with two versions of the RTX 5080 too.

A roadmap concerning the release of GeForce RTX 50 laptop GPUs has surfaced online before any official NVIDIA comment on the forthcoming series. For context, the roadmap allegedly stems from laptop manufacturer Clevo, which was hacked by RansomHub. Incidentally, the same group recently compromised Christie's, a major British auction house. 

As for NVIDIA and its upcoming laptop GPU refresh, it seems that little will change for its lower-end offerings. Specifically, the Clevo leak suggests that NVIDIA will continue to make the GeForce RTX 3050 and GeForce RTX 4050, with only the GeForce RTX 2050 receiving the chop. However, this will only occur when NVIDIA exhausts existing stock levels.

By contrast, NVIDIA is said to be planning six RTX 50 laptop GPUs ranging from the GeForce RTX 5050 to the RTX 5090. Surprisingly, there will be two RTX 5080 variants distinguished not only by their GPUs but also their VRAM volumes. Please note that these names are not final.

Ultimately, VRAM configurations remain more or less unchanged from their RTX 40 series counterparts, save for the expansion from 6 GB to 8 GB at the low end and 16 GB to 12 GB for the lesser xx80 option. Currently, NVIDIA is expected to unveil RTX 50 series laptop GPUs alongside their desktop counterparts in late 2024 or early 2025 with the following configurations from entry-level to high-end.

  • GeForce RTX 5050

    • GN22-X2 GPU / 8 GB of GDDR7 VRAM

  • GeForce RTX 5060

    • GN22-X4 GPU / 8 GB of GDDR7 VRAM

  • GeForce RTX 5070

    • GN22-X6 GPU / 8 GB of GDDR7 VRAM

  • GeForce RTX 5080

    • GN22-X7 GPU / 12 GB of GDDR7 VRAM

  • GeForce RTX 5080

    • GN22-X9 GPU / 16 GB of GDDR7 VRAM

  • GeForce RTX 5090

    • GN22-X11 GPU / 16 GB of GDDR7 VRAM
