Lenovo NVIDIA laptops deliver top-notch graphics performance
When you buy an NVIDIA® laptop -- that is, a laptop with a discrete NVIDIA graphics card -- you're getting a high-end system capable of rendering complex graphics quickly and smoothly. NVIDIA laptops may cost a bit more, but they are widely acclaimed for top performance, whether you're into competitive PC gaming, video content creation, or rendering immersive virtual reality (VR) environments.
Lenovo sells multiple laptops with NVIDIA graphics cards (more formally called graphics processing units or GPUs). In fact, this page is dedicated exclusively to NVIDIA laptops from Lenovo. You'll find NVIDIA graphics across our laptop lineup, from ThinkPad business systems to Legion gaming rigs, Yoga 2-in-1s and stylish IdeaPad models. We also offer NVIDIA graphics on our advanced mobile workstations.
Advantages of NVIDIA laptops
NVIDIA focuses on discrete or stand-alone graphics cards and is one of two major, intensely competitive GPU manufacturers. The other is AMD, which, unlike NVIDIA, also makes central processing units or CPUs, including so-called "integrated" CPUs that have their own, built-in graphics capabilities. Stand-alone GPUs (which AMD also makes) are generally considered superior to integrated graphics because they allow the CPU to focus on its main job of running the PC. They also have their own video memory and other features to create enhanced on-screen imagery.
NVIDIA is best known for its top-end graphics cards (with support for displays up to 4K resolution), although it has introduced more cards aimed at the broader consumer market in recent years. Its best known product lines are the highly popular NVIDIA GeForce® series and the more advanced NVIDIA Quadro® series, which is used mostly in powerful PC and laptop workstations. Within each line there are variations called GTX, based on the company's Pascal architecture, and RTX, based on the newer Turing architecture. Among other enhancements, the RTX variants add support for ray tracing, which is said to better simulate the way light rays really travel and can be influenced by the people and objects within each scene.
Another popular feature is NVIDIA G-Sync®, an adaptive synchronization technology that helps the laptop display or external monitor match the specific, sometimes inconsistent frame output of your PC and software, such as a live-action game. G-Sync, which is similar to technologies from other GPU makers, helps reduce problems such as stuttering (when frames appear to repeat or be skipped) and tearing (when the frame shows parts of the previous or next frames or both).
