We Played With MSI’s Killer New RTX 2080 Gaming Laptops at CES 2019

MSI RTX Gaming Laptop

CES 2019 is in full swing and Glitched is in Las Vegas at the expo for the first time. Our first stop at the year’s biggest tech expo was MSI’s media event where the tech brand revealed their new flagship gaming notebooks. Of course, with NVIDIA’s RTX cards being so popular, everyone predicted that the RTX cards would make their way to notebooks and they have. Most of MSI’s new 2019 gaming notebooks include RTX chipsets with them including GeForce RTX 2080s.

Check out all the hardware in a cool roundup video we put together on location at CES 2019 below:

This is a huge jump for gaming hardware especially in notebooks as it means that raytracing can now finally be brought to portable gaming notebooks and the tech is no longer exclusive to desktop GPUs. It also means that the power inside gaming notebooks has now increased quite dramatically as the RTX cards not only mean raytracing but also much more power.

MSI’s new gaming range for 2019 include some beastly machines. Right from the GT series all the way through to the GS series, they all now include NVIDIA’s 20 Series GPUs.
