Dell's G gaming laptop series starts looking more like Alienware in 2019

All before the end of January, Nvidia will be bringing its GeForce RTX series to dozens of laptops and has announced the new GeForce RTX 2060. Basically, the new RTX cards have Nvidia's NVENC technology, which features an independent portion of the GPU focused exclusively on encoding video. The RTX 2060, Nvidia's first pseudo-mid-range GPU from its Turing generation, will debut with a price tag of $350, but will have performance in excess of a GTX 1070 Ti. When Nvidia announced its Turing GPU architecture previous year, it couldn't stop talking about ray tracing, which is some very cool technology that allows reflections and shadows in a digitally rendered environment (like a game) to behave as they would in real life.

After weeks of speculation, Nvidia GeForce RTX2060 graphics card finally became official at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2019 in Vegas.

The new card is able to run Battlefield V at 1440p at over 60 FPS with RTX off, drops at about 50 with RTX on, but it jumps back up at over 60 with the help of DLSS. Better yet, the new RTX 2060 will support both ray tracing and deep learning super sampling (DLSS). Nvidia also revealed that the more powerful RTX 2080 will be coming to laptops from Acer, Asus, Razer and more starting January 29. An upscaled version of the recent m15, this new model adds a 17-inch screen (obviously) and Nvidia's latest mobile GPU, which is likely going to be called the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q (but that's not finalized yet). The Founders Edition wasn't particularly impressive, particularly given its $100 price premium, but we liked the EVGA 2070 Black quite a bit and it'll still make for a terrific addition to any new gaming PC or build upgrade-and the same can be said for most other RTX 2070s for sure.

The company plans to officially launch the Omen 15 laptops with NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q GPU in February, and the variant with the 15.6-inch 1080p 240Hz IPS display and the new Wi-Fi controller supporting the 802.11ax standard will release in July. This allows the company to create some of the world's thinnest and quietest gaming laptops.
