The familyAmpere Arrives in the mobile market as expected, with three versions first - different in material composition from their desktop counterparts
NVIDIA's RTX 3000 family Won another son in the stationary market as part of the CES 2021 exhibition, But the really big news has come to us from the mobile world where the first three models have been launched that will become the basis for a significant portion of the advanced gaming computers that will hit the market over the coming year.
The most significant change in the era of the mobile amp is a return to the familiar technical approach of the past, at least in some models - when a mobile model of a video card does not contain the same core and the same amount of active processing units as the stationary model bearing the same name. Convergence to required power limits). The RTX 3080 mobile model will be based on the GA104 core and will be more similar to the stationary RTX 3070 in terms of the number of processing units in which, the mobile RTX 3070 model will be closer to the desktop RTX 3060 Ti configuration while the RTX 3060 mobile will offer a change In that it will be very similar To his desktop brother launched in parallel to him.
The GeForce RTX 3080 Mobile GPU (this may be the official name that the various manufacturers will be paying more attention to now, with the differences compared to the standard desktop RTX 3080 being very significant again) will provide spearhead gaming mobiles with 6,144 active CUDA units, 6GB or 8GB GDDR16 memory And operating frequencies between 1,245MHz and 1,710MHz depending on the power envelope ranging from 80 watts for the most economical and efficient Max-Q models and up to 150 watts for the Max-P models in massive models - when it seems that mobile manufacturers will be able to break beyond the upper limit In special cases where there will be a solution Cooling Which is adapted to withstand consumption and the heat generated from it. These features may slightly disappoint those who expected to see a formidable GA102 core pulsating inside their next gaming mobile, but on paper it still has a very impressive performance potential of between 15TFLOPS or so for the Max-Q models over 20TFLOPS in the Max-P models, above the performance available in the -GeForce RTX The 2080 Ti desktop that was considered the most powerful gaming model until a few months ago.
The GeForce RTX 3070 Mobile GPU includes 5,120 active CUDA units alongside 8GB of memory GDDR6, at operating frequencies between 1,290MHz and 1,690MHz which translates into a power envelope of between 80 watts and 125 watts, with theoretical and practical performance that should exceed theGeForce RTX 2080 Super Mobile which was the most powerful in the category so far.
GeForce RTX 3060 Mobile GPU features 3,840 active CUDA units, 6GB GDDR6 memory based on 192-bit memory controller and 60 watts to 105 watts power envelope for 1,283MHz to 1,703MHz core frequencies and superior performance from the GeForce RTX 2070 Super The laptop and what- the GeForce RTX 2060 Super desktop. Not a bad deal at all, considering that inNVIDIA Promise that Mobile New ones with these graphics cards will be marketed at a suggested starting price of only $ 1,000 for which "only" could be obtained GeForce RTX 2060 Mobile So far, in the most optimistic case.
All three new mobile models will be officially launched on January 26, and will start appearing in many dozens of mobile models from all the major players in the PC market - over 70 different models are already planned and developed based on this hardware, and it is likely that this number will continue to grow. We hope that the theoretical performance will meet expectations and by and large, we will keep our fingers crossed that the various manufacturers will begin to place greater emphasis on defining and clarifying the practical power envelope of each model so consumers can know in advance what they are expected to get for their money.NVIDIA Will bring the technologyRTX Also to lower price and power levels later in the year, in a way that will allow us to enjoy it even in ultra-compact 14-inch and 13-inch mobiles as central proof of an exciting technological leap.
