NVIDIA has made a formal announcement on the launch of their GeForce RTX 40 Laptop series, which consists of the RTX 4090, RTX 4080, RTX 4070, RTX 4060, and RTX 4050.
Official GPUs for NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Laptops include the RTX 4090 with 16 GB, the RTX 4080 with 12 GB, the RTX 4070 with 8 GB, the RTX 4060 with 8 GB, and the RX 4050 with 6 GB.
Five distinct models will be available for the GeForce RTX 40 ‘Ada’ Laptop GPUs from NVIDIA. These laptop chips will offer some of the highest performance and value in each category and are directed squarely at gamers and enthusiasts who are serious about gaming. Each class will see significant improvements in overall performance and the graphics processing power available.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 16 GB Laptop GPU, the company’s flagship product, can be found at the top of the list. Remember that although these graphics processing units (GPUs) have the same naming system as desktop cards, they do not have the same specs and have been drastically scaled down, which we have seen in previous generations. This is something to keep in mind. Simply said, you cannot fit a graphics card that consumes more than 400 watts inside a laptop that has to be portable and only has a few power supply alternatives.
Extreme Power, Extreme Performance: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 16 GB Laptop Graphics Processing Unit
As a result, the flagship GeForce RTX 4090 will employ the NVIDIA AD103 GPU core, which will have 76 SMs or 9728 CUDA cores. This is the same core configuration as the desktop-class RTX 4080, and it comes with TGP choices that vary from 150W to 175W (+25W Dynamic Boost).
The clock range for the 150W TGP target will be designed to have a base frequency of 1590 MHz and a boost frequency of 2040 MHz. In addition, a 25W Dynamic Boost may increase the power of the TGPs to a maximum of 200W, hence enabling boost clocks.
High-End Graphics Processing Unit for Laptops: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 with 12 Gigabytes of Memory
The next choice is the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 16 GB, which has a total of 58 SMs of 7424 cores, a memory configuration that includes a 12 GB GDDR6 capacity operating through a 192-bit interface, and a memory configuration that consists of a memory configuration that provides for a 192-bit interface.
The graphics processing unit (GPU) is based on the Ada AD104 design. This is a scaled-down version of the chip that will be utilized by the future GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Desktop graphics card. The GeForce RTX 4080 GPU for laptops comes with roughly 24 percent fewer cores than the RTX 4080 graphics card for desktop computers.
The TGP range of the GPU will be comparable. However, it will utilize the AD104 GPU core instead. The GPU will receive a 150W, up to 175W TGP range, and for the 150W goal, it will have a Base speed of 1.86 GHz and a Boost clock of 2.28 GHz. An extra 25W Dynamic Boost range will be added to the RTX 4080.
On February 8th, the higher-end GeForce RTX 4090 & RTX 4080 Laptops are anticipated to ship, with beginning costs of $1999 US. At a resolution of 4K, users may expect three times the performance of the previous generation.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 and RTX 4060 Laptop Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) – 8 GB Aimed At The Mass Market
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 and the RTX 4060 will be equipped with 8 gigabytes (GB) of GDDR6 memory. In addition to the 25W Dynamic Boost Range, both GPUs will come with a standard power profile of 35 watts, which can go up to 115 watts TGP.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 will feature 4608 Cores, 8 GB memory, up to 2175 MHz boost clocks, and a 128-bit bus, while the RTX 4060 will feature 3072 Cores, 8 GB memory, up to 2370 MHz boost clocks, and a 128-bit bus. Both graphics cards will have the same amount of memory and the same number of cores.
Entry-Level Ada For Mobility Provided By The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 6 GB Laptop Graphics Processing Unit
Lastly, we have the budget-friendly GeForce RTX 4050 6 GB, which will also be available with a 35W-115W TGP option (25W Dynamic Boost profile too). At its 115W TGP range, the graphics processing unit (GPU) will have a boost frequency of up to 2370 MHz. The graphics processing unit has a maximum clock speed of 1605 MHz and will have a 96-bit bus interface.
Starting on February 22nd, consumers can purchase laptops equipped with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070, RTX 4060, and RTX 4050 graphics cards for a price that begins at $999 in the United States. Customers may anticipate the performance of an RTX 3080 laptop graphics chip while using only a third of the power. This will allow for gaming at resolutions up to 1440p at frame rates of 80 or more per second. Users may also anticipate quicker performance during content development, with a render that usually takes 2.5 hours being completed in only 10 minutes.
The graphics processing units (GPUs) included in NVIDIA’s Ada GeForce RTX 40 series laptops will offer up to a 30 percent jump in performance compared to its predecessors, adding the most recent capabilities like DLSS3 and improved ray tracing ability.
According to the product roadmap, many SKUs linked with Intel’s next Raptor Lake-H CPU series are being introduced this week at CES. The event takes place every year in January. These central processing units will be a good match for Intel’s recently released Raptor Lake-HX/H mobility processors.
