Top 3 Laptops with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 is one of the world’s most powerful gaming GPUs, capable of rendering even the latest AAA games in 3840 × 2160 UHD resolution at ultra-settings. The fact that these powerhouses can now be fitted inside even gaming laptops is nothing short of amazing. In fact, we are going to look at three laptops that have managed to pull of that feat best.

Razer Blade 15 4K 

When a laptop costs $4,000, you know you are dealing with serious hardware! Costly as it is, the Razer Blade 15 does not disappoint when it comes to delivering raw power in a mobile format. It looks gorgeous in black and has a solid aluminum build. Check the highlight specs below:

  • 15.6-inch, UHD/4K IPS panel at 144Hz Refresh rate
  • Intel Core-i9 12900H processor (14-cores)
  • NVIDIA RTX 3080 Ti 16GB
  • 32GB DDR4 RAM

Lenovo Legion 7 (16-Inch)

The Lenovo Legion 7 (16-inch) sports one of the smartest configurations we have seen yet. What makes the configuration smart is that they have not opted for a 4K display, but a beautiful, QHD+ 16-inch IPS panel instead. The hardware is powerful enough to run even the latest games in 4K-ultra-settings, but the fact that it does not have to means your gaming experience will be significantly better and smoother.

When a laptop must push 3840 × 2160 = 8,294,400 pixels at 60fps+, that is when we see overheating, thermal throttling, frame drops, and even burnouts. The Lenovo Legion 7 on the other hand, only needs to push half the pixels (2560 x 1600 = 4,096,000 pixels). Although a laptop would still need to be incredibly powerful to do so at 60fps in modern games, that is the kind of power that these Lenovo gaming computers can provide without overheating or dropping frames during long gaming sessions. It’s a smart move by Lenovo. Check out the highlighted specifications below:

  • 16-inch, QHD+ IPS panel at 165Hz Refresh rate
  • AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX processor (8-cores)
  • NVIDIA RTX 3080 16GB
  • 32GB DDR4 RAM
  • 1TB PCIe SSD

ASUS ROG Strix Scar 17

In many ways, the ASUS ROG Strix Scar 17.3-inch is similar to the Lenovo Legion 7 we just discussed. However, it’s the display where the two are vastly different. The Strix Scar sports a bigger display at 17.3-inches, but only a FHD resolution (1920×1080). However, the 1080p resolution does allow for high frame rates because of the powerful hardware inside.

Therefore, the 1080p display at 360Hz refresh rate does make sense for eSports enthusiasts. We have the highlighted specs listed for you next:

  • 17.3-inch, FHD IPS panel at 360Hz Refresh rate
  • AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX processor (8-cores)
  • NVIDIA RTX 3080 16GB
  • 32GB DDR4 RAM

The MSI GE66 (15.6-inch) and the GIGABYTE AORUS 17G are also options worth considering if you find them to be more budget friendly. However, these three are the best RTX 3080 powered gaming laptops available for purchase right now.
