NVIDIA and chip giant MediaTek are working together on bringing ARM-based gaming laptops with GeForce RTX graphics technology to the market. This is according to MediaTek CEO Rick Tsai, who released a statement confirming that the companies had partnered to enable the power of green team’s RTX GPUs on future ARM laptops via a new reference platform supporting Chromium, Linux, and NVIDIA SDKs (software development kits). NVIDIA’s interest in making ARM-based GeForce RTX laptops a reality isn’t too surprising based on its intent to acquire Arm Ltd.; the company even showed off a new ARM-based chip named Grace during this week’s ongoing GTC 2021 event.

GPU acceleration will be a huge boost for the entire ARM ecosystem.”
