The best graphics cards are still in short supply, but Nvidia has a bunch of GPUs lined up for 2022. Not only is the green team planning an RTX 3070 Ti and RTX 3080 refresh, but its next-generation RTX 4000 series could also be on the cards for next year. Yet, it looks like the graphics titan plans on revisiting the past before embracing the future, as its new laptop graphics lineup includes a discrete RTX 2050.
According to the company’s latest press release, its laptop GPU ensemble now includes a GeForce RTX 2050, MX570 and MX550, all of which feature RT and Tensor Cores. The new graphics card selection also boasts Nvidia DLSS, Reflex, and ray tracing capabilities, meaning your next budget gaming laptop could pack more of a punch.
Nvidia also says its new GPUs will embrace its Optimus technology, which should help balance battery life and performance. While you’ll still need to use your laptop power supply to enjoy peak performance, the optimised power setup should help cut the cord and make light gaming on the go more practical.
