NVIDIA® GEFORCE RTX™ 30 SERIES

These GPUs deliver the ultimate performance for gamers and creators. They’re powered by NVIDIA’s 2nd Gen RTX Ampere architecture – with new Ray Tracing Cores, Tensor Cores, and streaming multiprocessors for a massive leap in performance.

3RD GEN TENSOR CORES

Tensor Cores enable mixed-precision computing, dynamically adapting calculations to accelerate throughput while preserving accuracy.

2ND GEN RT CORES

Ray tracing simulates light's actual behavior to bring real-time, cinematic-quality rendering to the most visually intense games.

NVIDIA DLSS

Groundbreaking AI rendering boosts frame rates with uncompromised image quality using the dedicated AI processing Tensor Cores on GeForce RTX GPUs.

5TH GEN AEROBLADE™ 3D FAN TECHNOLOGY

Our 5th Gen AeroBlade™ 3D Fan Technology delivers some of the most powerful airflow made possible in a laptop – while providing essential cooling to other critical components via Vortex Flow Optimization, the PowerGem™,1, and strategically placed intakes, exhausts, and heat pipes.

BIONIC DESIGN

Inspired by silent, powerful flight mechanics examined in animals, we gave our fans a serrated edge, allowing more air to pass through.

ULTRA-THIN BLADES

Each of the 89 bionic blades is just 0.08mm thick and all-metal with a stabilizing dual indent groove.

WIND GUIDE

Designed to redirect airflow exactly where intended and further stabilize the fan at high speeds – reducing turbulence and noise.

VORTEX FLOW

We optimized the laptop's airflow through strategically placed thermal foam to increase overall cooling and reduce the device's skin temperature.

POWERGEM™,1

Thanks to this unique approach, the laptop can quickly disperse heat from the processor at a greater rate than other alternatives.

SEE THINGS DIFFERENTLY

Treat your eyes to a new reality with the 4K Mini LED 120Hz display1. HDR comes alive as the backlighting method makes it possible to reach VESA’s DisplayHDR™ 10001 specification. Games, movies, and whatever’s on-screen – all benefit from OLED-like levels of contrast and brightness.

THE NEW WASD

With our patented, mechanical MagTek Switches, WASD keys can function like a gamepad’s analog joystick, allowing you to gradually increase pressure on the key for precise control over your character’s / car’s speed – from the intial4 (0.8 mm), press all the way to full speed at 100% (3 / 3.1 mm) actuation.

MAGFORCE

Ideal for any game, these have a linear press with no bump and a travel distance of 3.0 mm. Actuation points are customizable.

RACING

The curved, concave-shaped keys are comfortable for prolonged use and have a barely noticeable bump during the press with a travel distance of 3.1 mm.

SWAPPABLE

Easily swap out the MagForce / Racing Keys out for standard membrane switch / keycap.

TAKE CONTROL WITH PREDATORSENSE

With four modes to choose from: Quiet, Default, Extreme, and Turbo – our custom utility app allows you to monitor your system, overclock, create macros, customize RGB preferences, and much more. All this within a personalized, intuitive interface geared around maximizing your system’s potential.
