ASUS RTX 2080, RTX 2070 and RTX 2060 Notebooks Leak at French Retailer

CES 2019 is fast approaching and Nvidia's RTX mobility lineup is amongst the most highly anticipated releases of the event, packing more power into mobile systems with the promise if RTX technologies like Ray Tracing and DLSS adding more icing to the cake. 

Today, ASUS' lineup of mobile gaming systems have leaked onto the internet via pc21.fr, a French retailer that has spilt the beans on the specifications of the company's upcoming systems, including an RTX-powered ROG Zephyrus system. 

For starters, we have graphics cards listed as the RTX 2080, RTX 2080 Max-Q (optimised for Ultrabook-style systems), RTX 2070, RTX 2070 Max-Q and RTX 2060-powered laptops, most of which are paired with NanoEdge IPS screens, offering 144Hz refresh rates on the go.  

This leak provided further evidence that Nvidia plans to launch their RTX 2060 and their RTX mobility lineup at CES 2019, likely at their keynote on January 6th (7th in the UK).

On pc21.fr, Notebooks from the ASUS ROG Strix SCAR II, ROG Zephyrus S, GX755, GX735, GX715, GX535 and GX515 ranges are listed, featuring RTX graphics hardware and availability dates that are as close as January 8th. 

At this time it is unknown how the specification of Nvidia's mobile RTX counterparts will compare to their desktop equivalents, with Max-Q models being expected to offer reduced performance to better fit into tighter form factors and thinner notebooks.

I mean it's not surprising but it's still impressive the amount of power laptops will have for sure. It'll also be impressive how expensive they get lolQuote

Yeah, there is a reason why my current laptop is still Ivy Bridge and has a GTX670MX. Gaming-grade laptops are crazy money now.

Ah well, when I travel I don't play many games anyway, at least outside of Civ and Total War, both of which run OK at their lowest settings on my current setup.Quote

Tbh I prefer something like a XPS 13 for a laptop. I dont see the need to have a dedicated GPU. Even then though for just a cpu and no dedicated graphics I still feel like those laptops('premium Ultrabooks) are expensive.

Outside of my feelings though I am actually wanting pretty bad to switch to a XPS 13 and external GPU, would love to clear up desk space and have the ability to unplug and go mobile. I'm just waiting for better support and most likely the next thunderbolt standard to ensure maximum performance (iirc there is a slight performance drop).

But many people game on laptops. A large portion tbh, so if they are willing then I don't see why I should stop them.Quote

I use an Ivy Bridge Thinkpad T430 with an eGPU adapter via the expresscard slot for gaming atm, your choice of card & setup is fairly limited in terms of making good use of it though. NVidia blocked expresscard eGPUs with later 1000 series drivers, so some later cards (1050 line and down, realistically probably the best card you'd want to use with such a bandwidth limited link) don't work at all, not really sure why they did that but it limits you to AMD cards if you want something modern. I think there's similar adapters for the mPCIe slot from like £5 for a really basic one but that can get quite messy.Quote
