If you own a GeForce RTX 2080, you may already have a GPU that’s more powerful than what Sony and/or Microsoft is putting in their next-gen consoles.

During his GTC China 2019 keynote, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang brought up a slide demonstrating the specs of the Lenovo Y740 MAX-Q laptop.

The slide suggested that its GPU, the GeForce RTX 2080, is better than a “next-gen console.”

It isn’t clear whether NVIDIA is referring to the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, or “Lockhart,” Microsoft’s weaker Xbox variant.

…this could very well be Lockhart and not the high-end model of the next-gen Xbox console. Still, it may give you an idea of how powerful these new consoles will actually be.
