Hey, it's Jorge! AMD just wrapped up its CES 2021 Keynote (thanks, Katie!), and we are just a few minutes away from seeing what sort of ray-traced hijinks the folks at Nvidia have in store for us.
Nice to see our Game of the Year getting some RTX love.
Our boy Jeff Fisher live from his not-kitchen break.

Next-generation Geforce RTX 3060 gaming laptops revealed, 30% faster than the Playstation 5.
These laptops will feature Dynamic Boost 2.0 which uses A.I. to shift power from the CPU to the GPU and GPU memory, managing power on a per-frame basis. Whisper mode 2.0 also gets a revamp to give better acoustic control. Resizable Bar allows the games to access the entire GPU memory. DLSS on laptops can manage up to double the frame and more efficient battery life.
Geforce RTX 3070 laptops (1.5X faster than RTX 2070) can hit up to 90 FPS at 1440p on Ultra settings. Starting at $1299.
RTX 3080 laptops can hit over 100+ FPS at 1440p, Ultra.

January 26th is when we will start seeing the first onslaught of RTX 30-series laptops from all the big OEMs with prices starting at $999.
Of course, Jeff wasn't going to let us go just like that. The show ends with Microsoft Flight Simulator running on an intense Logitech G Flight Gear cockpit system with the new GTX 3080 Razer Blade Laptop doing the heavy lifting.
