Still image from Nvidia's CES 2019 keynote. The new models will be available at the end of this month. 3DMark's recently announced Ray Tracing benchmark, Port Royale, was shown as well running with and without DLSS at 1440p. In addition to increasing performance, however, image quality also appeared better with DLSS - there were fewer AA-related artifacts and many textures appeared sharper with DLSS enabled. The Gigabyte is expected to run Battlefield V at 60 frames per second with RTX enabled.
As with the desktop chips, NVIDIA's laptop offerings come in a few flavors: RTX 2060, RTX 2070, and RTX 2080. You'll also find 6GB of GDDR6 memory and 240 Tensor Cores that can deliver 52 teraflops of processing power, and five GigaRays per second of ray-tracing performance.
Interestingly, Nvidia has also issued the first tacit admission that its high-priced G-Sync variable refresh rate technology - which requires special circuitry driven by a field-programmable gate array (FPGA) to be installed in the monitor - may not be the way forward by announcing that it will begin supporting rival AMD's FreeSync technology, referred to by its VESA-certified Adaptive Sync nomenclature, in its GeForce graphics cards for the first time.
For a limited time, consumers buying a qualifying GeForce RTX 2060, or a new desktop PC equipped with the RTX 2060, can get Anthem or Battlefield V for free. More than 40 upcoming laptops, including 17 sporting NVIDIA's Max-Q design, will offer RTX 2080, RTX 2070, and RTX 2060 graphics options.
The RTX 2060 is coming incredibly soon - next week, in fact. On the other hand, those who will grab a 2080ti or 2080 will get both games to get them started on the road of RTX. To date, only 12 of the hundreds of Freesync monitors now on the market have been certified through NVIDIA's testing, but we're told that adaptive refresh can be enabled on non-validated displays as well - the user experience may not be ideal with all of them, however.
