All notebooks with confirmed Nvidia RTX 3060
(Nvidia RTX 3060) Nvidia’s participation at CES 2021 helped the company introduce entry-level RTX 3060 models for desktops, as well as a new range of Ampere-based laptop GPUs.
And in the same way that Nvidia delivered a huge leap in performance with the desktop RTX 30 series, the news now is that an entry-level laptop with RTX 3060 is more powerful than a next-gen laptop with RTX 2080 Super and even improves performance. performance of the PS5 by 30%. Not surprising with 12GB GDDR6 memory.
According to Nvidia, this performance should deliver a solid gaming experience at 90 fps with Full HD resolution and Ultra graphics. That performance improvement could mean laptops with higher refresh rates (up to 360 Hz) in 2021.
The artificial intelligence and ray tracing capabilities of the new RTX range provide many benefits, such as Nvidia’s BAR technology that allows the CPU to access all GPU memory at once, or Nvidia Reflex, which reduces latency of keyboards, mice and controllers.
Best of all, Razer claims that laptops with RTX 3060 should have a starting price of just $ 999, thus offering great performance without spending a fortune (although they are not cheap, cheap, of course).
With the launch of 70 new laptops with the RTX 30 series GPUs , it can be difficult to know which ones include the cheaper RTX 3060. This is where we come in with this list of all confirmed RTX 3060 laptops.
Razer Blade Pro 17
Although the Razer Blade Pro 17 is physically the same as the 2020 version, it is not bad news. With its aluminum body and large keyboard and trackpad , this computer offers a premium experience and remains one of the smallest 17 ”RTX laptops.
The Razer Blade Pro 17 offers a variety of high-quality displays, including a 120Hz 4K UHD touchscreen and 360Hz FHD display, and even with an input RTX 3060, you’ll have a 165Hz QHD display that’s ideal for work and play.
That comes with a 10th Gen Intel Core i7-10875H processor and 16GB DDR4 RAM, a variety of ports, and a backlit keyboard. Out of the box, you have a 512GB SSD, but you can upgrade to more capacity at any time.
It is a premium device , which means that so will its price, which starts at € 2,399.99. For creatives and gamers who are going to take advantage of all this technology, it is a good option. It can now be pre-ordered at Razer .
Gigabyte Aorus G5
The power of the RTX 3060 means that manufacturers have the option to increase the refresh rate of the screens of gaming notebooks , and the Gigabyte Aorus G5 makes the most of it, with a 15.6 ”IPS Full HD screen and 240 Hz.
Alongside the RTX 3060, you’ll find the legacy 10th Gen Intel i7-108070H processor, 16GB DDR4 RAM, and a 512GB NVMe M.2 SSD, which should offer great 1080p gameplay for laptop gamers.
Gigabyte has also thought about cooling, as the G5 includes two 5V fans and four internal valves to dissipate the heat that is generated by the GPU and CPU during intense gaming sessions.
Although it does have a backlit keyboard, its overall look wouldn’t be out of place in an office or college, as it’s pretty minimal compared to others on this list. It also includes ports like a USB-C 3.2, HDMI 2.0, MiniDP or an SD card slot.
MSI GF65 Thin
Ironically, the GF65 Thin is almost 6mm thicker than the MSI Stealth 15M that was also unveiled at CES, and it measures 21.7mm. Regardless, its 1.86kg weight means that it is quite light and does not sacrifice performance.
The RTX 3060 comes with a 10th Gen Intel i7-10750HD, 16GB DDR4 RAM, and a 1TB M.2 NVMe SSD, ideal for storing all your games.
It’s a big upgrade so you can take full advantage of the 144Hz refresh rate of the 15.6 ”IPS Full HD screen, or if you have a better external monitor, you can use the included HDMI port.
It also has three USB-A 3.1 ports, a USB-C 3.1 port, and a charging port. Of course, you will not find an SD card slot that does include other options on the list.
As with the Razer Blade Pro, Acer’s Alienware M15 and M17 haven’t changed much on the outside, but considering that the R4 redesign was so important, we can let it go. Also, what matters is your improvements in power.
The stars are, of course, the RTX 30 series GPUs, with the entry-level RTX 3060 being available for both the 15 ”and 17” models. Add to that 10th generation Intel i7 or i9 processors depending on the model, and up to 32GB DDR4 RAM.
To all this, we must also add an SSD of up to 4 TB, an optional 360 Hz screen on the 17 ”model and a wide variety of ports, including an HDMI 2.1. This is how one of the best gaming laptops of 2021 is achieved .
Dell has yet to announce full specifications for the used RTX 3060, but the models that include it are not expected to arrive until next March. We do not know, for the moment, the price in Spain.
Acer Predator Triton 300 SE
The Acer Predator Triton 300 SE not only makes use of the power of the Nvidia RTX 3060 GPU, but also the new 5GHz Intel i7-11375H processor to offer good performance in a small and light body. Well that’s relative, as it measures 17.9mm thick and weighs 1.7kg.
You’ll also get a 14 ”144Hz FHD panel, along with a wide variety of ports (including Thunderbolt 4, HDMI, and 2nd Gen USB 3.2) and an RGB backlit keyboard.
The design, yes, does not stand out. In this case, Acer has decided not to bet on the typical gamer aesthetic , but has opted for a fairly simple metallic design that would not clash in an office.
Acer Nitro 5
The Acer Nitro 5 will also be updated in 2021, and there are many options to choose from. Among them, we find the combination of the AMD Ryzen 7 chipset and the Nvidia RTX 3060, and you can even have an FHD screen at 360 Hz or QHD at 165 Hz. It is available in 15.6 “and 17.3”. With Intel 11th generation chips, the maximum refresh rate is 144 Hz.
While some gaming laptops are almost ultralight, the same cannot be said for the 16 ”Nitro 5, which weighs 2.5 kg. This is due to its design, since in this way the audio configuration is improved, it has space for an RGB backlit keyboard and other gaming features .
Most importantly, it has space for two additional NVMe SSDs and a 2.5 ”SATA SSD slot so you can add more storage in the future. It supports up to 32GB RAM, something that is not always possible in laptops.
Asus ROG Zephyrus G14
With the 2021 update to the Zephyrus G14, Asus introduced the Nvidia RTX 3060, which offers a leap in graphics performance compared to the previous RTX 2060, as well as the latest AMD Ryzen 5000 CPU.
It’s a huge improvement for an already powerful laptop, but it’s not the only thing that stands out: the improved performance of the RTX 3060 means Asus could introduce a 1440p display at 144Hz, and there are also improvements to the LED cap. customizable.
You can also get 10 hours of autonomy from this laptop, and it is compatible with Dolby Atmos through the configuration of four speakers.
Asus ROG Strix Scar G15
But the Zephyrus range is not the only one that Asus will update with the RTX 30 series. It will also be available on the Asus ROG Strix G15 and G17 model, which will come with the latest AMD Ryzen 9, Ryzen 7 5800H, Ryzen 5 5600H or earlier. AMD Ryzen 7 4800H, and it will have up to 32GB RAM depending on the model.
This combination means that Asus could improve its refresh rate, and it will offer two options to choose from: a Full HD resolution with an incredible rate of 300 Hz, or 165 Hz with WQHD.
Whatever you choose, Asus promises a response time of 3 milliseconds which, working with Nvidia Reflex technology, should eliminate any lag when playing fast-paced games.
Asus TUF Gaming Dash F15
Asus has also confirmed that the entry Asus TUF Gaming Dash F15 will offer at least one variant with RTX 3060, which will come with an 11th Gen Intel chipset , although further specs are unknown.
All this power means that Asus could offer a display with a higher refresh rate, giving gamers the choice of a 1080p monitor at 144 Hz or one with an even faster refresh rate at 240 Hz.
You should not worry that you could break it, as it has been granted the MIL-STD-810H military grade of protection that we have already seen in the rest of the TUF range models.
Of course, it shows that it is a more economical laptop in design. It’s 19.9mm thick, thinner than previous TUF laptops, but that makes it thicker than many of its rivals. Weighing in at around 2kg, it is lighter than you would expect.
Gigabyte Aero 17
Although the announcement of the RTX 3060 focused on laptops for gamers , do not forget creative also need more graphics power for your designs graphics, video editing, and so on .
For the more creative public, Gigabyte launches the Aero 17, an ultralight laptop with a 17.3 ”FHD screen with a GeForce RTX 3060 and an Intel processor up to Core i7, although we still do not know if it is 10th or 11th generation.
We also don’t know anything about storage and RAM, but we do know that it will have several ports such as an HDMI 2.1, miniDP and Thunderbolt 3, as well as an SD card slot that will facilitate the transfer of images and videos.
It is worth specifying that this is not the Aero 17 HDR, which will offer a GPY up to the RTX 3080 and an Intel Core i9 ideal for a 4K HDR display.
