4 reasons why you probably shouldn't buy a gaming laptop right now


PC enthusiasts looking for the next best thing may want to think twice before jumping on gaming laptop deals right now. With new hardware from AMD, Intel, and Nvidia coming around the corner, we’re likely to witness a major performance bump.

To help you decide, we’ll run through the four reasons you may not want to buy a new laptop. All are significant reasons, but the first one is a doozy.

1. Nvidia 30-series Ampere GPUs

If you buy a laptop to play games, the most important component is always going to be the GPU. While Nvidia remains tight-lipped, a report from WCCFtech.com’s Usman Pirzada indicates that the mobile version of the company’s “staggeringly powerful” RTX 30-series GPUs could appear as soon as January.

The WCCFTech story said Nvidia’s Ampere-based GeForce RTX 3060, RTX 3070, and RTX 3080 will supplant today’s Turing-based 20-series of GPUs in gaming laptops. The Turing-based GeForce GTX 1650 and GTX 1650 Ti will stick around at lower prices.

It’s really the 30’s that matter. Given that the GeForce RTX 3070 on desktop is somewhat equal to a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, the mobile version should also provide a huge performance boost for gamers. And yes, the RTX 3080 will take yet another step beyond that.

As the GPU is the lifeblood of gaming, it’s worth it to wait a month to see if Pirzada’s story comes true. And yes, if he’s wrong, and you passed on a deal, you can shake your fist like Admiral Kirk as you scream into the heart of a dead planet: “USMAAAN!”
