Nvidia, named after a Roman vengeance demon, has launched a new family of more budget-friendly Turing graphics chips for gaming laptops .

Dubbed the GeForce GTX 1650, GeForce GTX 1660, and GeForce GTX 1660 Ti, the new GPUs will power roughly 80 different OEM mainstream gaming notebook designs, starting in the $799 price range.

The GeForce GTX 16 Series family doesn't have RT or Tensor cores, it does bring other enhancements found in their GeForce RTX counterparts like concurrent floating point and integer operations, 3x the L1 cache of Pascal-based mobility parts, and adaptive shading. Nvidia is quoting a roughly 1.4x uplift in power efficiency (with TDPs as low as 60W) along with a 1.5x improvement in instructions-per-clock compared to Pascal.

Compared to a four-year-old gaming laptop with a GeForce GTX 960M, Nvidia told Hot Hardware that a modern counterpart equipped with a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti could deliver 4x the performance in today's battle royale-style games like Apex Legends, Fortnite, and PUBG. Of course, if they compared them against a 10-year-old laptop, the figures would look even better.

As for the GeForce GTX 1650, NVIDIA promises a 2.5x performance advantage compared to the GTX 950M and a 1.7x advantage compared to the previous generation GTX 1050. Gamers should expect consistent 60 fps performance in gaming titles at 1080p, though the company didn't specifically mention GTX 1660 vs 1060 performance comparisons.

According to Nvidia, every major OEM will be releasing GeForce GTX 16 Series laptops, including well-known brands like ASUS, Dell/Alienware, Acer, Hewlett-Packard, and Lenovo (among others).
