NVIDIA has finally announced its lineup of RTX GPUs for laptops at CES 2019. Coming under the N18 family, these GPUs will be available in both standard and MaxQ variants. The RTX 2080 and RTX 2070 will be coming in a total of three variants each — one standard and two MaxQ variants. NVIDIA said that over 40 notebooks from various OEMs will powered by the new mobile GeForce RTX GPUs and are slated be available starting this January.

At CES 2019, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang unveiled the mobility RTX GPU lineup based on the new Turing architecture. These GPUs come under the new N18 family and are fabricated on a 12 nm process with support for DLSS and real-time ray tracing. The mobile RTX GPUs come in both standard and Max-Q variants. These variants differ primarily in terms of TGP, clock speed, and memory clock.

These are some of the specs of the upcoming mobile GeForce RTX GPUs —

The top-tier mobile RTX 2080 (N18E-G3) and RTX 2070 (N18E-G2) come in a total of three variants — one standard and two Max-Q versions. The tables below indicate the Turing GPUs succeeding their Pascal counterparts. Interestingly, while the GTX 1050 Ti gets a Turing successor with the N18P-G0, the GTX 1050 will likely continue as a Pascal card with a new 3 GB GDDR5 version that will be available in standard (50W TGP) and Max-Q (35W TGP) versions. 

Laptops featuring mobile RTX 2080 (N18E-G3), 2070 (N18E-G2), and 2060 (N18E-G1) will be available starting early January while the other mobile RTX variants will be shipping in laptops from April 2019.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
