The secret sauce at the heart of the new GPUs is the Turing architecture, which delivers 1.5x instructions per clock and 1.4x the power efficiency compared to the Pascal architecture.

According to Nvidia, this allows GTX 1660 Ti powered laptops to offer the best performance per watt of any laptop in their class.

"Gamers have an impressive selection of fast, power-efficient and thin laptops to choose from -- all powered by our Turing family of GeForce RTX and GTX GPUs," said Mark Aevermann, director of product management at Nvidia. "Now is the perfect time to be in the market for a new GeForce gaming laptop, especially for the tens of millions of gamers with older laptops who'd like to experience incredibly fast frame rates in their favorite games."

GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and 1650 models are available starting today from the big top OEMs, such as Acer, ASUS, Dell, Gigabyte, HP, Lenovo, and MSI, along with a wide range of smaller and more boutique OEMs and system builders.

System featuring the new GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and 1650 GPUs will start at $799.

Along with bringing the GeForce GTX 16-series GPUs to laptops, Nvidia has also released a desktop version -- the GeForce GTX 1650 GPU, priced at around $149, and available from makers such as ASUS, EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI, PNY, Zotac, and more.
