After releasing its full-sized RTX GPUs for desktops, Nvidia is now turning its attention towards laptop gamers. The American hardware maker has launched new Turing and Ampere-based GPUs for budget gaming laptops.

Nvidia Launches Powerful GPUs for Budget Gaming Laptops


Nvidia has announced a total of three new GPUs for laptops including the GeForce RTX 2050, GeForce MX570, and the GeForce MX550. It appears that Turing has officially made a comeback in the gaming market, and for good reason since competition from AMD and Intel is expected to heat up next quarter.

The RTX 2050, in particular, is a brand new GPU we have not seen on the laptop or desktop segment. It is based on the GA107 GPU core with 2048 cores which exceeds the RTX 2060’s core count on laptops. The GPU has a boost clock of up to 1477 MHz, a 45W TGP, and 4GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 14 Gbps.

Here is how the RTX 2050 compares to its siblings.

The table below is taken from Wccftech.

Nvidia has not shared any details on the GeForce MX570 and MX550, but we do know that the MX570 is based on a new Ampere GPU SKU, the GA107, while the MX550 uses the Turing TU117 GPU.

Despite being entry-level graphics cards, the new GPUs have support for all the latest features such as ray tracing, NVIDIA DLSS, Reflex, and Broadcast, among others. They will also work perfectly well with Optimus and should provide better battery life compared to their higher-end siblings thanks to their lower power usage.

The new Nvidia graphics cards will debut on budget-friendly gaming laptops in early 2022.
