GAMING laptops are about to get a whole lot better, as Nvidia has revealed its latest batch of all-singing all-dancing graphics cards are coming to mobile this month.
The RTX 20-series cards are getting mobile-friendly versions, and the first laptops containing them will be hitting at the end of January, the firm revealed at CES 2019 in Las Vegas.
These will be among the most powerful gaming laptops ever made when they hit the streets, and should be capable of running the top games at the very highest settings right out of the box.
The fancy new cards promise ultra-realistic gaming on the go, but only the most expensive of those looks likely to be able to deliver that.
The ultra-realistic gaming graphics delivered by the 20-series cards come thanks to fancy tech called ray tracing — and only the top-of-the line RTX 2080 card has enough grunt to meet Nvidia’s own recommended levels for using it.
Gaming specialists Alienware and Razer have both revealed their first laptops with the new tech, and you’ll be able to get your hands on them before the end of January.
HP has promised its Omen laptop range is going to get a new 15-inch entry featuring the cards from £1,525 from February.
It also revealed that its Omen range was getting a new display this year — the frankly preposterous 65-inch Emperium BFGD.

BFGD is a new standard from Nvidia, and stands for Big Format Gaming Display. The first BFGD screens were shown off at CES last year and promised to arrive last summer.
That didn’t happen, and the Emperium is going to be the first-ever BFGD to hit the market, though, and will cost a whopping £4,310 when it arrives in March — but that does come with a built-in soundbar and Nvidia Shield set-top box.
