NVIDIA has unveiled its plans for CES 2021. The company will make an announcement on January 12 at 09:00 PST. Rumour has it that NVIDIA plans to bulk out its RTX 30 series with new desktop cards like the RTX 3060, along with its first foray into Ampere-based laptop graphics cards.

The GeForce RTX 3070, the RTX 3080 and the RTX 3090 may be difficult to months after their launch, much to the dismay of gamers. Similarly, there was hardly any launch day stock of the RTX 3060 Ti, despite a two-week delay of its release that NVIDIA claimed would prevent a repeat of previous RTX 30 series card launches. Nonetheless, NVIDIA is plowing on with another GeForce RTX event scheduled for early next year.

The event will commence, as the invite below shows, at 09:00 PST (UTC+08:00) on January 12. NVIDIA plans to live stream the event on multiple platforms, including YouTube and Twitch. Unsurprisingly, NVIDIA did not reveal what ould be announced next month. Regardless, the company has hinted that an RTX 3060 is in line for release, which will supposedly come in two 6 GB and 12 GB of VRAM flavours.

Both models should arrive with NVIDIA's new GA106 GPU, which is also thought to be making its way into laptops. There has also been evidence of NVIDIA developing an RTX 3050 and RTX 3070 Ti, along with an RTX 3080 Ti. The latter is now thought to be arriving at the end of February, rather than at next month's GeForce RTX event. We would not rule out the emergence of the RTX 3050 or RTX 3070 Ti yet, though.

Additionally, the first mobile Ampere GPUs are reputedly due for release next month. Laptops with RTX 30 series GPUs may not be available to order until early Q2 2021, but NVIDIA and its partners may showcase them at the January 12 event. Based on multiple leaks in the last few months, NVIDIA plans to release mobile versions of the GeForce RTX 3080, GeForce RTX 3070 and GeForce RTX 3060, with Max-P and Max-Q SKUs available for all cards.

However, NVIDIA will continue to offer the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti and the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti for entry-level gaming laptops. Apparently, there is no GTX 16 series refresh due in early 2021, if at all.
