(Pocket-lint) – When Nvidia releases a range of laptop GPUs, you can be confident of one thing – it won’t do it by halves. The GeForce RTX 30-series is a stunner of a line-up, with options to suit basically all budgets if you’re looking for a gaming laptop.
Unlike the old days, you can get extraordinary results from thin and sleek devices, too, so you’ll find a laptop that suits you whether you fancy a notebook or a more gargantuan display. Here are some of the very best laptops featuring GeForce RTX 30-series GPUs that you can pick up right now, with some really excellent savings to pick from.
Asus TUF Gaming FX506HCB – RTX 3050
This is a superb gaming laptop from Asus that makes great use of a GeForce RTX 3050 to both keep costs down and maximise the performance you can get from a machine at this price point. Its processor is an Intel Core i5-11400H to ensure that it keeps up with the impressive benchmarks being set by the GPU.
You have a 15.6-inch FHD display to game on, with a nice 144Hz refresh rate. This means that while your RTX 3050 pumps out high frame rates in optimised titles you can take the fullest advantage by having that smoothness reflected on-screen.
Gigayte G5 – RTX 3060
Stepping up to the next level, one great option for a GeForce RTX 3060-boasting laptop is this extremely solid Gigabyte machine, which pairs the GPU with an Intel Core i5-10500H chip for a load of brawn when it comes to performance, and has an excellent more reserved design.
With 16GB of RAM and a 512GB SSD for storage, you’ll start to forget what long loading times even look like, and the design means it won’t be out of place if you use it as a work machine during the day, either. It’s also got expandable storage slots, making it really easy to add new drives when you need to.
Acer Nitro 5 – RTX 3070
We’ve been impressed by a long line of Acer Nitro 5 versions, all of which share the same high build quality and great keyboards. We can’t think of a better way to improve on things than by getting a powerful GeForce RTX 3070 in the mix, though, something that brings real brawn to this gaming laptop.
With an Intel i7-11800H chip to marry it to, there’s a heck of a lot of power under its hood, making for a superb experience playing the likes of God of War on high settings and checking out its detail and effects. All the ports you could need for work or play make it an ideal pick if you want an adaptable laptop that’s a beast for gaming.
Asus ROG Zephyrus G15 – RTX 3080
We don’t think we’re exaggerating when we say the ROG Zephyrus G15 is one of the nicest-looking gaming laptops we’ve ever clapped eyes on, with a gorgeous slimline design that wouldn’t be noticed in most work settings, and the ability to absolutely breeze through gaming.
It’s got a unique RBG array on its top lid that you can control completely to suit your style and under the hood an all-important GeForce RTX 3080 card that is simply overpowered when compared to the vast majority of other laptops on the market. Tiny bezels and a great keyboard and trackpad make the G15 great to use day-to-day, and an AMD Ryzen R9-5900HS processor means you’ll notice it has no problem with almost any productivity task.
