Nvidia Corp. announced a line of new gaming laptops along with a cheaper desktop chip Tuesday amid supply constraints that have hampered availability of the company’s popular desktop chips, but one analyst believes the laptop rollout could go smoother.
On Tuesday, Nvidia said it would launch an even more inexpensive desktop graphics card, the RTX 3060 — without the “Ti” designation — for $329, in addition to the new laptops. Nvidia said that more than 70 laptop manufacturers would offer gaming laptops that use the company’s next-generation Ampere architecture. Nvidia said its new gaming laptops would be priced at $999 for the RTX 3060 model, $1,299 for the RTX 3070 model, and $1,999 for the RTX 3080 model.
The Santa Clara, Calif.-based chip company said the 3070 and 3080 laptops will ship on Jan.
