Alienware Upgrades Popular m15 Gaming Powerhouse With New NVIDIA GPUs

CES 2019: Nvidia RTX 2060 is here, it's faster than a GTX 1070Ti and costs just $349

Almost five months after making its debut for desktop PCs, NVIDIA's latest RTX 20 Series graphics chips are ready for the limelight in laptops. At the top end, the RTX 2080 for laptops, incredibly, is faster than a GTX 1080 desktop graphics card and can hit more than 60 frames per second in Battlefield V with ray tracing turned on. Though Jensen's last few CES keynotes have featured a myriad of AI, Deep Learning, and autonomous vehicle related news, this year's keynote focused nearly exclusively on gaming and the advanced brought forth by the company's Turing GPU architecture.

Specifically, the GPU brand will be releasing a total of 40 new model, all powered by mobile variants of the Turing GPU architecture.

Nvidia RTX 2060 features 6GB of GDDR6 memory and 240 Tensor Cores claimed to deliver 52 teraflops of deep learning horsepower via a feature called Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS).

Nvidia has announced the launch of its GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card family, new Turing-based RTX-capable laptop models, and partial support for running AMD FreeSync monitors - referred to under their cross-vendor Adaptive Sync terminology - from Nvidia graphics cards. That said, the notebook packs a 17.3-inch display with either Full HD or 4K resolution, Intel 8th Gen Core i5, i7, or i9 processors, support for up to 32GB of RAM, dual SSD, and Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti or RTX 2060, 2070, and 2080 graphics cards. Several benchmarks and metrics were shown; compared to the GTX 1060, last generation's mid-range card, the RTX 2060 can perform between 1.4 to about 1.9 times better at 1440p with high settings (depending on the game). We will have a full review of the RTX 2060 posted in the morning, but Jensen did reveal a couple of key details we can reiterate here. In a somewhat surprising, but welcome move, NVIDIA's CEO announced some exciting G-SYNC-related news as well.

The existing 15-inch m15 model is getting an update as well, adding new options including RTX graphics from Nvidia, Intel's Core i9-8950HK CPU and a 4K display. I can't wait for them to experience this new wave of laptops.
