NVIDIA Intros Ampere GeForce RTX 2050, GeForce MX570 & Turing MX550 GPUs For Entry-Level Gaming Laptops
NVIDIA has introduced three new GPUs for the laptop segment based on its Turing & Ampere architecture, the GeForce RTX 2050, GeForce MX570 & MX550.
NVIDIA Intros GeForce RTX 2050, GeForce MX570 & GeForce MX550 For Entry-Level Gaming Laptops
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2050 GPU is the latest laptop gaming SKU based on the Ampere graphics architecture along with the GeForce MX570 while the GeForce MX550 is based on the Turing architecture. It looks like Turing has officially made a comeback on both desktops and laptops in 2021 and there is a good reason given the heated competition from AMD and Intel that's coming next quarter. The NVIDIA RTX 2050 is also a brand new SKU as we haven't seen it on either the desktop or laptop segment before.
Starting with the specifications, the GeForce RTX 2050 is based on the GA107 GPU core with 2048 cores which is actually more than the GeForce RTX 2060 laptop variant. It features a boost clock of up to 1477 MHz and has a TGP of up to 45W. The GPU features 4 GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 14 Gbps but runs across a 64-bit bus interface which provides 112 GB/s bandwidth. The memory sub-system is the major blow to the RTX 2050 but it makes sense since this is not a replacement of the RTX 2060 but a more entry-level option.

Moving over to the GeForce MX570 and MX550, NVIDIA isn't providing detailed specifications but it looks like the MX570 is based on a totally new Ampere GPU SKU, the GA107 while the MX550 uses the Turing TU117 GPU. The GA107 die is already shipping in RTX 3050 laptop SKUs and since the MX series is always the most entry-level die, this would be the most cut-down configuration of the GA107 GPU core.
The GeForce RTX 2050 and MX500 series laptop GPUs support all the latest features such as ray tracing, NVIDIA DLSS, Reflex, and Broadcast, among others. They also work seamlessly with Optimus & are a perfect solution for providing longer battery times with more horsepower over a standard iGPU.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2050 and the GeForce MX570 / MX550 GPUs are expected to ship in entry-level laptops by Spring 2022.
