Laptop Performance is pushed to new heights by Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4090

News Summary:

  • And it should come as no surprise that the GeForce RTX 4090 from Nvidia is absolutely terrifying on laptops. Even though it isn’t an exact replica of its desktop counterpart (which some internet users dislike), this graphics processor still outperforms its RTX 3080 Ti predecessor while also appearing to consume less power.

  • Hardware for enthusiast laptops these days is nothing to laugh at. particularly not today. The latest mobile flagship components from Intel and Nvidia are now available, and they are powering some seriously powerful notebooks.

How large? In our tests, thinking performance increases by as much as 70%. This GPU is a powerhouse supported by impressive technology, which is encouraging for the upcoming laptops. For the highlights (as tested on a massive MSI Titan GT77 with the Core i9-13980HX and an Nvidia RTX 4090), read on. Our YouTube video delves deeply into the details.

Despite not being real-world games, these tests simulate the kinds of workloads your GPU encounters when playing AAA games. Additionally, the new RTX 4090 outperformed the 3080 Ti by well over 60% when you focus solely on GPU performance. The 4090 secured a roughly 65 percent advantage in Time Spy and Time Spy Extreme, which test at 1440p and 4K, respectively.

The RTX 4090 achieves impressive framerates on all gaming benchmarks. When you look at the numbers, especially in the corresponding DX12 synthetic benchmarks from 3DMark, you cannot dispute that fact.

Similar outcomes can be found in Port Royal, a 1440p test of general ray-tracing performance. The 4090 pushes out a nearly 70% increase even in the new Speed Way benchmark, which includes the evaluation of more recent ray-tracing features at 1440p.

It almost appears surreal—and in some ways, it is. As you’ll see in a moment, real-world benchmarks for the GeForce RTX 4090 have more nuance in how certain frame rates are achieved. This snapshot of performance, however, remains striking.

Even if the test is a built-in feature, benchmarks in shipped games are where the rubber meets the road. They provide a better picture of what to expect in a landscape where some games support technologies that boost frame rates, are optimized for specific hardware, or even run a little clunkier on PC.
