Nvidia unveiled today the new GeForce RTX 40 GPU series for laptops during the company’s special address for CES 2023. Built on the new Ada architecture with promises to be 3X more power efficient than the previous generation.
The new RTX 40 laptop series will come packed with new features, like DLSS 3, new Max-Q technology which offers AI-powered optimization for power and performance for thin form factors, and ultra-low voltage GDDR6 memory.
Nvidia announced that the RTX 40 laptop series will include 5 GPUs, led by the flagship RTX 4090 laptop GPU, with Nvidia claiming its up to 4x times faster than last gen’s Ampere flagship the RTX 3080 Ti laptop GPU in triple-A titles such as Cyberpunk 2077.
The flagship RTX 4090 Laptop is powered by the AD103 GPU, and features 9728 CUDA cores and 76 SMs, which are the exact same specs as the RTX 4080 for desktop. The RTX 4090 laptop will have a max TGP of 150 W, a Dynamic Boost of 25 W, and a max boost clock of 2040 MHz.
The RTX 4080 Laptop GPU will be based on the AD104, featuring 7424 CUDA cores, 12 GB of GDDR6 memory. Just like the RTX 4090 mobile it will have a max TGP of 150 W and Dynamic Boost of 25 W, with max boost clocks of up to 2280 MHz.
The RTX 4070 Laptop GPU built on the AD106 will feature 4608 CUDA cores, 8 GB of GDDR6 memory, a max TGP of 115W, and a max boost clock of up to 2175 MHz.
Both the RTX 4060 and 4050 Laptop GPUs will be powered by the AD107, featuring 3072 CUDA cores for the RTX 4060, and 2560 CUDA cores for the RTX 4050. Both will operate at a max TGP of 115 W and will have a max boost clock of 2370 MHz.
Nvidia announced that this is one of the biggest laptop launches the company has ever seen with laptops coming with the RTX 40 laptop GPUs from every major OEM, and with a huge variety in devices for every gamer and creator segment. On Nvidia’s website they revealed that laptops powered by the new RTX 40 GPUs will be coming in February.
