- Nvidia and Intel have announced their mobile hardware.
- Intel’s 13th generation chip, the 13 980 HX, has double the efficiency cores of the previous generation, with eight performance cores and 16 efficiency cores, providing a total of 24 cores.
- The top-end Intel chip is 30-35% faster than the top-of-the-line 12th gen chips from last year and can sustain high clock speeds on all the cores if cooled properly.
- Nvidia’s 40 series mobile GPUs have up to three times the power efficiency over the 30 series and are claimed to match or beat the performance of a 120-watt RTX 3070 using just 40 watts.
- The 40 series GPUs are available in the 4080, 4090, 4050, 4060, and 4070 models.
- DLSS3, Nvidia’s neural graphics technology, has frame generation that creates frames in between existing frames through AI, doubling the frame rate, and is only available on the 40 series GPUs.
- Razer, Alienware, MSI, and Asus have announced devices with the new hardware, with Razer and Alienware finally having 16:10 aspect ratio screens on their devices.
- The new hardware provides better power efficiency, longer battery life, and opens up new possibilities for laptops.
Intel has announced their 13th generation chips, with the 13 980 HX at the top of the line. This chip has double the efficiency cores of its previous generation, with eight performance cores and 16 efficiency cores, for a total of 24. The chip is said to be 30-35% faster than the top-of-the-line 12th gen chips from last year, and can maintain high clock speeds on all its cores if cooled properly. Nvidia has also announced its 40 series mobile GPUs, claiming three times the power efficiency of its 30 series, with the ability to match or beat the performance of a 120W RTX 3070 using just 40W. The 40 series also features DLSS3, Nvidia’s neural graphics technology, which can create frames in between existing frames through AI, doubling the frame rate of games that support it. Razer and Alienware are set to release devices with the new hardware soon, with 16:10 aspect ratio screens, and MSI and Asus also have new devices in the pipeline.
