The GP66 and GP76 Leopard also feature NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs. The spec sheets we saw had the GP66 maxing out at an RTX 3080 Max-Q, while the GP76 maxes out at an RTX 3070. There's a chance that both laptops actually can come with up to an RTX 3080 Max-Q, but we'll have to wait to see more details.

The GP66 and GP76 Leopard are also avaialble for preorder now (opens in new tab).
