Nvidia has started teasing the launch of the RTX 3000 series for laptops. The GPU manufacturer is holding a virtual press event for CES tomorrow, and it is widely expected to unveil the mobile versions of the RTX 3000 series GPUs. A new teaser video includes a very clear hint about a laptop, along with some other announcements that Nvidia is likely to make.
Tom’s Guide notes that the teaser contains four images: a game laptop, the Outriders games, a GeForce RTX logo and the size of the BAR (Base Address Register). Game-laptop hints at RTX 3000 mobile GPUs, but it’s also likely that the RTX logo will tease additional desktop GPUs. Rumor has it that Nvidia is ready to unveil an RTX 3060 GPU that will be priced under Nvidia̵
The adjustable BAR support acts as a hint for an upcoming driver update for Nvidia’s RTX cards. Like AMD’s Smart Access Memory, Nvidia can increase the throughput between a CPU and GPU to improve frame rates. Motherboard manufacturers need to provide BIOS updates to enable this for both Intel and AMD processors, but Nvidia’s teaser suggests that it’s also ready to roll out the necessary driver support.
Nvidia will hold its CES press event at 09.00 PT / 12 ET ET on 12 January, and we will cover all the announcements when they happen.
