Pre-orders for NVIDIA’s top-of-the-line GeForce RTX 4090 & RTX 4080 GPU-equipped laptops will be available one week before launch.
The high-end RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 laptop CPUs as well as the more affordable RTX 4070, RTX 4060, and RTX 4050 laptop chips were all introduced by NVIDIA at CES 2023. Prices for the enthusiast-class GPUs start at 1999 USD, and availability is anticipated on February 8th. These GPUs are made to provide the highest quality gaming experience.
According to ITHome, a full week before the retail debut, pre-orders will start for the great majority of these laptops on February 1. It’s uncertain whether reviews will be available at the time of pre-orders, but it would be good to read them beforehand before deciding whether to pre-order. Having said that, preliminary testing has revealed that the GeForce RTX 4090 & RTX 4080 offer respectable performance numbers. The RTX 4080 graphics card is roughly as fast as the RTX 3080 12 GB (Desktop), while the RTX 4090 laptop is roughly as fast as the RTX 3090 (Desktop).
Even though these chips are rated at up to 175W TGP, NVIDIA’s Ada Lovelace GPU architecture has so far demonstrated some great efficiency feats on the desktop lineup, and we may anticipate similar results from the mobility lineup (25W Dynamic Boost). Additionally, each laptop will have its unique heatsink, cooling system, and power/thermal constraints, all of which can have a significant impact on the ultimate graphics performance of the GeForce RTX 40 laptop GPUs.
Extreme Performance, Extreme Power: Laptop GPU NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090, 16 GB
As a result, the top-tier GeForce RTX 4090 will use the same NVIDIA AD103 GPU core configuration as the desktop-class RTX 4080, with a total of 76 SMs or 9728 CUDA cores, and TGP options between 150W and 175W (+25W Dynamic Boost). The 1590 MHz Base and 2040 MHz Boost clock ranges will be used for the 150W TGP objective. The TGPs can be driven up to 200W by an additional 25W Dynamic Boost, enabling boost clocks.
High-end for everyone: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 12 GB Laptop GPU
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 16 GB option is the next one up. It has a total of 58 SMs with 7424 cores and a memory setup that comprises 12 GB of GDDR6 capacity across a 192-bit interface. The GPU is a scaled-down version of the Ada AD104 architecture, the same chip found in the forthcoming GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Desktop graphics card. In actuality, the GeForce RTX 4080 Laptop GPU has roughly 24% less cores than the RTX 4080 graphics card for desktop computers.
The GPU will use the AD104 GPU core and have a similar TGP range. With a Base clock of 1.86 GHz and a Boost clock of 2.28 GHz for the 150W objective, the GPU will have a 150W and up to 175W TGP range. Additionally, the RTX 4080 will receive an expanded 25W Dynamic Boost range.
On February 8th, the higher-end GeForce RTX 4090 & RTX 4080 Laptops are anticipated to go on sale for a starting price of $1999 US. Users can anticipate 3 times the performance compared to the prior generation at 4K resolution. We may anticipate some models with AMD’s Dragon Range Ryzen 7000 HX CPUs as well as Intel’s recently unveiled Raptor Lake-HX/H mobility processors, which will work well with these CPUs.
