Laptop Gaming at a Glance
Personal computers have been an important part of the video gaming industry practically since the beginning. If you own a computer, or use one regularly, chances are you have played a computer game at least once in your life. Many personal computer games require good hardware in order to run, and some triple-A titles even require the best hardware currently on the market. This makes it difficult for gamers who mainly use laptop computers in their day-to-day lives to properly enjoy video games on their device. However, recent developments in the world of computing have given these people hope that they will be able to play the latest titles on portable hardware in the near future.

Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3080 is Coming to Laptops
So, how can portable computers run the latest video game titles? After all, many laptops on the market today lack the necessary hardware to run even the last generation of games! Well, a recent information leak from Nvidia suggests that the processing giant is creating mobile versions of their popular GeForce RTX 3000 line of graphical processing units. This will give laptops a significant power boost in the event that Nvidia decides to sell these units to portable computer manufacturers.
The Asus Leak
So, how far along in their development are the mobile versions of Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3000 GPUs? As it turns out, Asus has had a leak of their own recently, one that reveals a new version of their ROG Zephyrus G15 laptop that comes equipped with the GeForce RTX 3080. This suggests that Nvidia is actually quite far along in the development of their new mobile GPU line, and we may even see laptops that make use of them being rolled out sometime within the next year or two.
Right to repair
Another factor in more gamers potentially turning to laptops is the laws rules when it comes to “the right to repair” which gives gamers a guarantee about the longevity of their device because if things go wrong they can seek out a laptop repair expert locally rather than having to throw the device out and buy a new one.
Wait and See
Personal computers are an important part of the gaming industry. Many gamers use them on a regular basis, and nearly everyone has played a computer game at some point in their life. People who play video games on laptops have always been limited in the kinds of games their devices can run, but if the leaks from Nvidia and Asus are true, then there is a high probability that we are about to see a huge jump in the graphical power of portable computers sometime in the near future. We will just have to wait patiently and see.
