NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2050, MX550, MX570 laptop GPUs announced
NVIDIA announced three new Turing and Ampere-based laptop GPUs, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2050, MX550, and MX570.
The announcement of these new GPUs comes three weeks after the NVIDIA RTX 3050.
The incoming laptops will come with more affordable options for both the RTX series and the GeForce MX series. This will be powered by new entry-level laptops that will come in 2022 and would likely provide a cheaper yet better gaming experience in the laptop space.
The GeForce RTX 2050 will be a very late addition to the RTX 20-series, and Nvidia claims that this will have 2048 CUDA cores, which are more than what the RTX 2060 has (1920 CUDA cores). The newer RTX 2050 will also have a boost clock of up to 147MHz and a rated total graphic power (TGP) of 45W. The GPU will also come with 4GB GDDR6 VRAM and a memory bandwidth of up to 112GB/s. Since these are part of the RTX series, they will likely come with features like Ray Tracing, Nvidia DLSS, and more.
Moreover, NVIDIA also announced the MX550 and MX570 GPU, with the latter being its fastest GPU in the MX series. These are an upgrade to the existing MX450 and are expected to offer better performance in other areas like clock speeds, memory bandwidth, and more. Though the exact specification has not yet been made public, these likely will be based on the new Ampere architecture.
The three new GPUs are likely to be officially unveiled during or post-CES 2022. The RTX 2050 will definitely be seen conquering entry-level gaming laptops, while the MX550 and MX570 will be on thinner or more mainstream laptops.
