CES 2021 is finally here and Nvidia is having its major keynote this afternoon! Nvidia launched its latest RTX 30-series Ampere graphics card lineup in late 2020 only to be plagued with stock and distribution issues thanks to COVID-19.

Nvidia now has some of the best desktop GPUs available, so what else can we expect? Well,  we were already anticipating mobile GPUs for laptops to be announced at CES 2021 but do we have some more desktop GPUs coming?

Nvidia hasn’t officially announced anything quite yet but we are going to be watching the event and continually updating this article with the juiciest bits!

Nvidia CES 2021 Keynote: What We Expect

Well, Nvidia Mobility GPUs are going to be announced for sure, plus the rash of leaks we saw pre-holidays around the versions of the desktop cards would suggest that there will be new news on that front as well. We’ve also heard a lot of rumors about Nvidia launching its RTX 3000 mobility lineup for the best gaming laptops.

We are also expecting and excited by the inevitable announcements of more ray-traced games taking advantage of Nvidia RTX cards.
