You may not need to wait long to experience NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30 series on your laptop. “Tom’s Guide” pointed out that before the January 12th CES event, NVIDIA had shared a not-so-smart trailer for its mobile RTX 30 graphics. You will only catch a glimpse, but the short clip shows both the laptop and the obvious oriented portable GPU.
The product listings of laptops with RTX 30 may provide you with some hints. According to reports, NVIDIA is planning to be roughly equivalent to most of its desktop GPUs, including the RTX 3060 with 6GB of RAM, the 3070 Max-Q with 8GB of RAM, and the flagship RTX 3080 Max-Q with 16GB of RAM, even exceeding 10GB. Desktop 3080.

These cards should benefit from improvements in the Ampere architecture such as faster ray tracing and may add resizable base register technology to enhance communication between the CPU and GPU.
The existing RTX 30 chip has a technical function, so it may only be a problem of enabling the function through software. NVIDIA may also launch non-Ti RTX 3060 for desktops at virtual events.
There are still some unresolved issues that may need to be resolved after the presentation. It is still unclear how good the laptop RTX 30 graphics card is compared to similar graphics cards. Power consumption is also a mystery.
The RTX 30 motherboard consumes a lot of power, and it is not certain how NVIDIA maintains this consumption to check portable computers.
