The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 mobility lineup is allegedly leaked, and four variants are under the process for launch based on the Ampere GPU Architecture. Giggle HD (via Harukaze5719) gives the information and also reported that the specifications for the first high-end mobility lineup are being sent to partners and an announcement is expected during CES 2021.
The source suggests that NVIDIA has provided the initial specifications and the first priority orders are currently being shipped. The GeForce RTX 20 mobility lineup will be replaced by the GeForce RTX 30 series. The RTX 30 lineup will be based on the Turing GPU architecture, and it will provide better performance than its predecessor, but it remains a question whether the number of TGPs will be kept the same or increased. The difference between the number of TGPs of the Max-Q (efficiency optimized) and Max-P (performance optimized) SKUs might be higher when compared to the previous generations.
As far as the lineup is concerned, four variants will be offered in the RTX 30 mobility lineup. The lineup consists of GeForce RTX 3080, GeForce RTX 3070, GeForce RTX 3060, and their respective Max-Q/Max-P variants, it is said that the RTX 3080 might feature the Max Q variant only as the Max P variant might consume more power concerning the mobility market. It can be expected that the specification might be similar to the RTX 3080 desktop version, but the clock speeds will be significantly reduced. Moreover, there are strong chances that the RTX 3080 Max-Q will use the GDDR6 memory instead of the GDDR6X.
As for the RTX 3070, it will also come in the Max-Q variant only . It may also share the same specifications as its desktop version, but the TDP and clock cycles will be highly optimized. It is listed for notebooks featuring i7-H series processors. The recent leak of GeForce RTX 3070 mobility tells that it features a SK Hynix’s GDDR6 with an operational voltage of 1.2V, and it has a speed of 12Gbps compared to the 14Gbps of the desktop variant.
The last one is RTX 3060, which will feature a cut-down GA104 or GA106 GPU. It will be available in both, Max-P and Max-Q variants. It will be featured in the upcoming laptops and notebooks. A Tiger Lake-H laptop featuring eight cores and 16 threads is expected to be launched next year by Intel. It will be integrated with the GeForce RTX 30 series lineup as a competitor for AMD’s RDNA2 based Radeon RX 6000 series and Intel’s DG “Xe-HPG”.
