NVIDIA Unleashes GeForce RTX 4090, RTX 4080, RTX 4070, RTX 4060, RTX 4050 GPUs for Laptops

NVIDIA has officially introduced the GeForce RTX 40 line of laptops which includes RTX 4090, RTX 4080, RTX 4070, RTX 4060 and RTX 4050.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 Laptop GPUs Official: RTX 4090 16 GB, RTX 4080 12 GB, RTX 4070 8 GB, RTX 4060 8 GB, RX 4050 6 GB

NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 40 ‘Ada’ laptop GPUs will include a total of five variants. These laptop chips will offer some of the best performance and value in every segment and are aimed solely at gamers and enthusiasts. Each segment will see a huge rise in terms of performance and graphics efficiency.

At the top of the range is the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 16GB GPU for laptop which is the flagship. One thing to keep in mind is that while these GPUs share the same naming scheme as desktop cards, they don’t have the same specs and are scaled down significantly which is something we’ve seen in previous generations as well. It’s simply because you can’t cram a 400W+ GPU into a laptop that needs to be portable and has limited power options.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 16GB Laptop Graphics Processor – Ultra Powerful Performance

As such, the flagship GeForce RTX 4090 will feature two NVIDIA AD103 GPU cores for a total of 76 SMs or 9728 CUDA and is the same core configuration as the desktop-class RTX 4080 and comes with TGP options in the 150W and up to 175W range (+25W Dynamic Boost) . The 150W TGP target will be configured with a Boost clock band of 1590MHz and 2040MHz. On top of that, there is an additional 25W dynamic boost that can push TGPs up to 200W, allowing for higher clocks.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 12GB Laptop Graphics Processor – Advanced For The Crowd

Next we have the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 16GB option which features a total of 58 SMs from 7424 cores and a memory configuration that includes 12GB GDDR6 running via a 192-bit interface. The GPU is an Ada AD104 design which is the same chip used by the upcoming GeForce RTX 4070 Ti Desktop graphics card but is a shortened version of it. In fact, the GeForce RTX 4080 laptop GPU comes with about 24% fewer cores than the desktop RTX 4080 graphics card.

The GPU will come with a similar TGP range but adopt the AD104 GPU core. The GPU will have a TGP band of 150W and up to 175W with a base clock of 1.86GHz and a boost clock of 2.28GHz for a 150W target. The RTX 4080 will also get an additional 25W dynamic boost range.

High-quality GeForce RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 computers are expected to be launched on February 8th, with prices starting at $1,999. Users can expect 3 times the performance compared to the previous generation at 4K resolution.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 and RTX 4060 will each have 8GB of GDDR6 memory. Both GPUs will get 115W standard profile and up to 140W TGP along with 25W dynamic boost range. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 will come with a 2070MHz base and 2175MHz clock in its 115W profile. The GeForce RTX 4060 can go down to 85W (plus a 10W dynamic boost).

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 6GB Laptop Graphics Processor – Entry Level Ada Mobility

Finally, we have the entry-level 6GB GeForce RTX 4050 which will also get you the option of 115W-140W TGP (25W Dynamic Boost profile as well). The GPU will have a boost clock of up to 2370MHz in the 115W TGP range. For more power-conserving designs, the RTX 4050 can go down to 85W (plus a 10W dynamic boost).

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070, RTX 4060, and RTX 4050 laptops will be available starting February 22nd, starting at $999. Buyers can expect the RTX 3080 laptop graphics chip to perform at 1/3 of the power, running up to 1440p at 80+fps. Users can also expect faster content creation performance with 2.5 hours rendering done in just 10 minutes.
