The idea of high-end gaming on the go got a little nearer with Nvidia’s confirmation of the RTX 30 Max-Q and Max-P Mobility GPUs arriving in 3080, 3070, and 3060 configurations and set to feature on several high-end gaming notebooks due to launch from both AMD and Intel in the near future.

An impressive demo of the demanding Microsoft flight Sim 2020 concluded proceedings, and while we were certainly expecting confirmation of the products it was nice to see them actually arrive.

The flagship is obviously the 3080 and it’s going to come with 16GB RAM and a max clock speed of around the 1550MHz mark.

The 3070 steps down the RAM to 8GB with a max clock speed of 1300MHz and finally the 3060 packing 6GB of RAM.

All three chips will arrive this quarter so if you are looking for a gaming laptop right now it may be worth holding off just to see how many variants we get to see in the coming weeks and months.

Maybe you will be able to play Cyberpunk properly by the time they get all the bugs out of it.
