A leaked gamingLaptop-Benchmark revealed the Nvidia RTX 3080 Ti GPU

Tech Highlights:

  • Speculation about higher-end notebook GPUs from Nvidia has been flying around for quite some time now, although previous leaks suggested that an RTX 3080 Super was planned rather than the current Ti allocation. Naming conventions aside, the SKU for this model of the mobile GPU seemingly confirms that it will feature 58 Compute Units, each carrying 128 CUDA cores.

  • We revealed a few weeks ago that Nvidia is planning to sell an RTX 3080 Ti laptop graphics card, and now there’s more evidence to back it up courtesy to a new Geekbench leak. According to VideoCardz, an unnamed HP Omen laptop has an Intel 12th Gen Alder Lake CPU and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU. Some of these also stated the driver name as ‘Nvidia Graphics Device,’ which doesn’t offer us much to go on, but considering that this is all unconfirmed information, don’t accept anything at face value. The RTX 3080 Ti appears to have 16GB of VRAM, similar to the mobile RTX 3080.

After some basic maths, we can assume that the RTX 3080 Ti mobile will have 7,424 CUDA cores over the 6,144 featured in the mobile RTX 3080, though 256 CUDAs appear to have been disabled for this variant. The Vulcan score is a fairly impressive 90,114 points, which actually sets it below the standard RTX 3080 laptop GPU average score of 91,130, but we expect this number will change after drivers have been finalized and everything has been fine-tuned.

We also know that Nvidia is currently working on its RTX 4000 series, codenamed ‘Lovelace’, but this new generation is currently expected to appear around the end of 2022, which would fit the timeline expectations set by previous releases.

Rumors for a new addition to the Ampere RTX 3000 series of mobile graphics cards have been circulating for months, with estimations that they could be unveiled early in 2022. Given the ongoing silicon shortage, it feels like an unusual time for Nvidia to be focusing its efforts on a new laptop GPU, especially when the current lineup feels fairly well balanced, but no doubt people will be itching to get their hands on a new, powerful gaming laptop once they appear in the wild.

To us, it would surely make more sense to focus efforts on creating a well-balanced lineup of RTX 4000 mobile GPUs rather than churn out another addition to the current family, but as we have no way of knowing for sure that Lovelace will land by this time next year, this could be in preparation for a delay on RTX 4000 gaming laptops.
