NVIDIA currently has no update plans for the RTX 40 series laptop GPUs
Over the past year, NVIDIA’s next-generation GPUs based on the Ada Lovelace architecture have not only graced desktop platforms but have also made their presence felt in the laptop arena, demonstrating a comprehensive deployment. Recently, there have been persistent rumors about NVIDIA’s impending launch of the GeForce RTX 40 Series SUPER for desktop platforms. This has led many to speculate whether NVIDIA might replicate this strategy in the laptop domain, especially considering its history of announcing updates to its laptop GPU lineup at major events like CES.
Recently, a discovery by internet users revealed that in a blog post, laptop manufacturer XMG discussed NVIDIA’s plans for its laptop platform. They mentioned that there are no imminent updates planned for laptop GPUs based on the Ada Lovelace architecture, not even minor configuration changes.
Given that laptop manufacturers receive product samples in advance for testing, they are typically privy to early information. This suggests that at least for the foreseeable future, NVIDIA does not intend to refresh its laptop GPU lineup with models akin to the “SUPER” or “Ti” variants seen on desktop platforms. For laptop manufacturers, this means that while they will undoubtedly update their product lines in the coming months in response to new laptop processors from Intel and AMD, the discrete GPUs paired with these will continue to be the existing GeForce RTX 40 Series laptop versions.
Additionally, XMG has no plans to incorporate the Radeon RX 7600M XT in its gaming laptops, though it did not mention whether it would consider AMD’s recently released Radeon RX 7900M. The latter is significantly more powerful and represents the pinnacle of AMD’s RDNA 3 architecture in laptop GPUs.
