In addition to the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, Nvidia is also launching the first Ada Lovelace graphics cards for notebooks at CES 2023: the GeForce RTX 4000 laptop GPUs. With RTX 4090, 4080, 4070, 4060 and 4050 laptop GPUs, the range right at launch is bigger than ever. OEMs will have even more leeway with the TGP in the future.

The GeForce RTX 4000 laptop GPUs in detail

Compared to Ampere two years ago, Nvidia brings more variants right from the start, including the 90 series for the first time in the notebook, until now it was the end of a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti laptop GPU. Thus, the “biggest” GeForce was reserved for the desktop PC to date, which in principle was consistent with the fact that notebooks generally only used the second-biggest desktop GPU (GA103) instead of the biggest (GA102).

Again, given that Nvidia (and AMD) consider the nomenclature in desktop and notebook to be separate, there was no argument why the fastest mobile graphics unit shouldn’t also have the same name as the fastest model in desktop. With the new generation of laptop GPUs, Nvidia is taking exactly this step.

Nvidia promises the biggest leap in performance in generations, which is largely due to the biggest leap in efficiency Nvidia has ever realized in a notebook. Based on Ada, Nvidia promises the same performance in the notebook as with Ampere with only a third of the power consumption – even if Ada has already proven to be extremely efficient, DLSS 3 should have been used for this comparison.

Technical specifications at a glance

In the run-up to the announcement at CES, Nvidia had not shared any key technical data with the press – this is already a tradition for notebook graphics cards. After the live stream, however, the key technical data were updated on the manufacturer’s website.

A look at the key data compared to the old generation reveals: The two largest models and the RTX 4050 laptop GPU are better than the old generation in terms of shaders, while the 4070 and the 4060 are weaker. Thanks to the new, much higher clocked architecture, both will still be faster, but the premium should be slightly smaller compared to the 4050, 4080 and 4090.

The TGP bandwidth will be even larger

What is also striking is that all known series have even wider TGP bands than they have had up to now. It is also interesting that the RTX 4070, 4060 and 4050 for notebooks operate in exactly the same TGP range and therefore the corresponding notebooks from Nvidia are also mentioned in the same breath. This means that the issue of transparency in the communication of the TGP actually used in a notebook should be even more important than with RTX 3000 laptop GPUs. Nvidia is again completely silent on the Dynamic Boost surcharge that is to be added to the TGP depending on the model.

How transparent is the TDP handled?

As a reminder: With the GeForce RTX 3000 laptop GPUs, Nvidia generally wrote “laptop GPU” in the designation and thus basically made it clear that it is a mobile variant. In return, “Max Q” as a label for the particularly efficient, but also particularly slow versions within a variant (e.g. RTX 3080 laptop GPU) was deleted. How fast a specific GeForce RTX 3080 laptop GPU was was not clear from the designation and the technical data for the notebook.

After ComputerBase exclusively made public in early 2021 how significantly the performance of a GeForce RTX 3000 laptop GPU scales with the TDP and that there are certainly cases in which a GeForce RTX 3070 laptop GPU is faster than a GeForce RTX 3080 laptop GPU (if not even with the same TDP in the same notebook), Nvidia had imposed on the OEMs to explicitly name the TDP of the installed graphics card in the technical specifications.

It remains to be seen how Nvidia and the OEMs will proceed with the new generation.

The GeForce RTX 4090 laptop GPU in detail

The new top model is the GeForce RTX 4090 laptop GPU based on the AD103 GPU, which is also used by the GeForce RTX 4080 in the desktop PC. With active 9,718 FP32-ALUs, the chip configuration is also the same, a larger graphics unit than the new RTX 4090 laptop GPU has never been available from Nvidia for notebooks.

With a maximum of 150 watts plus a maximum of 25 watts via Dynamic Boost (electrical power to which the CPU is entitled but not required), the TDP is significantly lower than that of the RTX 4080 for desktop PCs (320 watts), but remains at that of The RTX 3080 Ti laptop GPU known level between 150 and 80 watts. With 16 GB GDDR6, the mobile 4090 also offers as much memory as the 4080 for the desktop, which in turn clocks higher with GDDR6X. RTX 3080 Laptop GPU (optional) and RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU also already brought 16 GB with them.

The mobile GeForce RTX 4090 laptop GPU essentially corresponds to a GeForce RTX 4080 for the desktop PC with a lower TDP and less memory bandwidth.

The GeForce RTX 4080 laptop GPU in detail

Like the GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, the GeForce RTX 4080 laptop GPU uses the AD104 GPU, but with 7,424 shaders, three percent fewer execution units are active than in the new desktop model. The mobile 4080 offers exactly as many shaders as the RTX 3080 Ti laptop GPU based on the GA103M, so it is broader than the 3080 laptop GPU. Information on the full configuration of the AD104 is not available.

At 12 GB, the memory expansion of the RTX 4080 laptop GPU is the same as that of the RTX 4070 Ti in the desktop, but the clock and thus the bandwidth are also lower in this case with GDDR6 instead of GDDR6X. How clear remains to be seen. Interestingly, the GeForce RTX 3080 laptop GPU came in both 8GB and 16GB GDDR6 versions. When it comes to memory expansion, switching to the RTX 4080 laptop GPU does not necessarily mean progress.

The RTX 4080 laptop GPU can also be configured up to a TGP of 150 watts without Dynamic Boost. What is new is that OEMs can also throttle it to 60 instead of the previous 80 watts.

The GeForce RTX 4070 laptop GPU in detail

The RTX 4070 laptop GPU is the premiere for the AD106 GPU. Information on the full configuration is not available in this case either. With 4,608 active shaders, the new RTX 4070 laptop GPU is exactly 10 percent narrower than the old RTX 3070 laptop GPU and also has a narrower memory interface. When it comes to memory expansion, however, both models with 8 GB do not take anything. The maximum TGP of 115 watts is also identical to the RTX 3070 laptop GPU, but it may be reduced to up to 35 watts in the future.

The GeForce RTX 4060 laptop GPU in detail

The next GPU premiere is the RTX 4060 laptop GPU: Based on the AD107 chip, this variant relies on 3,072 active shaders and thus also on fewer execution units than the direct predecessor, which is surprisingly strong compared to the other variants was set up.

In this case, it’s actually 20 percent fewer shaders than last generation, so the smallest mobile graphics card should see the smallest jump in performance, which should put it behind compared to the larger models. Only tests will bring certainty on this point.

Oh, in this case it stays at a maximum of 115 watts TGP, but the minimum drops from 60 to 35 watts here as well.

The GeForce RTX 4050 laptop GPU in detail

The GeForce RTX 4050 laptop GPU is also based on AD107, but uses fewer shaders and only 6 GB of memory via a narrower memory interface. The predecessor RTX 3050 (Ti) laptop GPU had to be satisfied with 4 GB. The TGP band is the same as RTX 4060 to 4070 laptop GPU at 35 to 115 watts.

DLSS 3 for more FPS and longer runtimes

In addition to the increased performance with the same maximum TDP, Nvidia DLSS 3 (test) is a compelling argument for the new generation in notebooks. The combination of DLSS Super Sampling (“DLSS 2”) and DLSS Frame Generation (“DLSS 3”, but DLSS 3 also includes Super Sampling) should not only give the new generation of gaming notebooks with RTX 4000 laptop GPUs higher absolute FPS, but in particular also enable higher FPS with lower power consumption, because DLSS 3 can be used to achieve a set frame limit to save power with even less computing power.

In addition, the new generation brings three more Technologys to increase efficiency, which Nvidia, like DLSS 3, counts among the “Max-Q Technologys”. The manufacturer mentions the use of particularly energy-saving GDDR6, an even further optimized power management for the memory and the optimized large cache of the Ada Lovelace GPUs.

Available from February 2023

Notebooks with the RTX 4000 laptop GPU are expected to go on sale in February. The top models with a mobile RTX 4090 or 4080 will be available from February 8 from $1,999 before taxes, the variants with a mobile RTX 4070, 4060 or 4050 from February 22 from $999 before taxes.

The systems will be based on the 13th generation of mobile core CPUs newly introduced by Intel, or the new generation Ryzen 7000 Mobile, which is also expected at CES.

AMD is expected to introduce new competitor models to the GeForce RTX 4000 laptop GPUs with AMD Radeon RX 7000 Mobile. In particular, the issue of power consumption and efficiency should be critical, because RDNA 3 has not been able to convince in this respect compared to Ada Lovelace on the desktop.

titbit

Three years ago, two entrepreneurs from Barcelona They launched an innovative project within the audiovisual production sector. Arnau Seix and Adrià Coll They founded the digital video startup, Titbit, weeks before COVID broke out, and in the middle of the pandemic they managed to raise their first round of investment. Three years later and with a consolidated project, the production company closes a new capitalization in which he has once again raised 150,000 euros.These rounds of adjusted capital allow us to grow and evolve in a conscious and reasonable way, without having to make disproportionate growth promises that imply making investments at a frenetic pace”explains Arnau Seix, who together with his partner and co-founder is committed to continuing to strengthen the bases to achieve the objectives set.

On this occasion, Titbit has given entry to reference investors in the world of advertising, and among them stands out one of the leaders in the sector, Juan Manuel de la Nuez, a professional with extensive experience and former CEO of the Wunderman Thompson agency. “In my professional career, I have met clients many times to whom the issue of content production for external communication or even internally, it was a real headache for them, since the agencies could not respond competitively in time or cost, and neither could the production companies. For this reason, when I got to know Titbit, I understood that it is a solution that responds to these headaches and therefore represents a clear potential for growth and investment.”.

With this round, Titbit aims to increase its national expansion, both commercially and in product development. The startup’s headquarters are located in Barcelona and also has an office in Madrid. “We want to create a commercial network that allows us to help other countries to achieve more agile and economical productions, since we have confirmed that the creation of digital content suffers the same problems outside our borders”. In addition, the celebration of the third anniversary of the startup coincides with a change of corporate image and the launch of the new website, which is in line with continuing to innovate in the sector, reflecting the value of its disruptive proposal.

Regarding the evolution of the project in the short and medium term, at a time of economic uncertainty like the current one, companies apply budget cuts in marketing and advertising, but even so they need to communicate more than ever, since they must compensate for the loss of sales caused by the crisis. “Many brands are looking for a new way to produce their content for digital channels, and this is where Titbit’s proposal becomes more relevant than ever”, explains Arnau Seix, who also sees international markets as an interesting option to continue growing.

“In these three years we have seen how big brands have connected with our message: closed and transparent prices, much more agile productions (maximum 15 days) and unlimited rights of use in all their pieces”. Stephanie SalvatMarketing Manager of Hoteles Hesperia, tells about his experience with Titbit that “It is the first production company I know and with which I collaborate that has such a clear differential value proposition”.
