Jarrod’sTech gave us an exclusive first look at the NVIDIA RTX 4090 Laptop GPU performance in the newest Razer gaming laptops.Even though this evaluation is not exhaustive, this is a display of preproduction Razer laptops supplied by NVIDIA to Jarrod. This implies that a more comprehensive evaluation cannot be conducted until the embargo is removed.
Rather, we are given a comparison of DLSS3 and DLSS2 performance in a few games and productivity benchmarks on the Ada and Ampere laptop GPUs, which is what NVIDIA expects us to see for the time being. The new video discusses the latest Razer Blade 16 (2023), which features a Core i9-13950HX 24-core processor and AD103-based RTX 4090 NVIDIA graphics. Notably, this laptop utilizes 160-175W TGP settings for this GPU.
Jarrod compares this gaming laptop against the previous-generation Razer Blade 17 with a Core i7-12800H processor and RTX 3080 Ti graphics card (operating within the same TGP range). It is also essential to highlight that the memory of the two systems is distinct. The Blade 16’s DDR5-5600 memory is superior to the Blade 17’s DDR4-4800 memory, which might impact performance.
This early glimpse compares the RTX 4090 with the DLSS3 upscaling technology to the RTX 3080 Ti with DLSS2. This is not a meaningful comparison; ideally, it would be more informative to examine normal raster performance. However, if a game supports DLSS3, RTX 4090, GPU performance will be improved by at least 80 to 263.1 percent.
The comparison between Blender and DaVinci Resolve, with no DLSS techniques, is more intriguing. When rendering 8K and 4K movies utilizing the H.265 codec, the RTX 4090 is between 72.4% and 135.8% quicker in Blender and at least 126% faster in Resolve Studio. Jarrod is making videos that showcase all of the forthcoming RTX 40 GPUs. According to his statement, Schenker (XMG) will offer him several laptop combinations, so there will be much more to see.
