NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 40 ‘Ada’ laptop GPUs are launching at CES 2023 and we have more specs to share with you in our exclusive site.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 ‘Ada’ GPUs with up to 200W TGP and over 2GHz Boost Clocks: RTX 4090 16 GB Flagship with AD103 GPU
Just as it was leaked before, 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 part will see a significant increase in performance and 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.
As such, the GeForce RTX 4090 flagship will feature an NVIDIA AD103 GPU core and come with TGP options in the 150W and up to 175W range. 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.
Next we have the 16GB NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 option which will come with a similar TGP range but is based on an 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.
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).
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).

According to the previous report, NVIDIA’s Ada GeForce RTX 40 mobile GPUs will offer up to 30% performance improvement over their predecessors while adding the latest features such as DLSS3 and improved ray tracing performance. According to the product roadmap, we’re seeing a lot of SKUs, which were announced in January, along with Intel’s upcoming Raptor Lake-H CPU series. This means that Intel will also announce the Raptor Lake-H mobile CPU series at CES and the NVIDIA RTX 40 / Raptor Lake-H laptops will be among the first to hit the market by the end of January / early February.
