Nvidia officially unveiled the RTX40 line of laptop graphics cards at the annual CES 2023 technology conference. This line includes the RTX4090, RTX4070, RTX4060, RTX 4160 and RTX 4150 models. These laptop chips provide the best performance in every segment they compete in, from gamers and enthusiasts to professionals.
Top of the Line RTX4090
The GeForce GTX 4090 16GB is the highest-end model. These are smaller versions of desktop graphics cards because it requires 400+W to power such a card, while laptops only have limited power options. The RTX 4090 uses the AD103 core with 9728 CUDA Cores. This is the same core as the desktop RTX 4080. Turbo frequency of 2.04Ghz allows the graphics card to consume as much as 175W.
RTX 4080 or Below
The GeForce RTX 4080 is second in line. It has 7424 CUDA Cores and 12GB GDDR6. It also comes with a 192-bit interface. This card is based upon the AD104 design, which is the same chip as the RTX 4070 Ti. However, it is a shorter version. It runs at 1.86GHz base frequency and 2.28Ghz turbo. On February 8, the high-end RTX 4090 models and RTX 4080 models debut in the first laptops priced at $1,999.
RTX 4070, 4060
8GB of GDDR6 is available on the RTX 4070, RTX 4060 and RTX 4060. Both graphics cards can be used at 35W but consume up to 120W. The RTX 4070 boasts 4608 CUDA cores at a turbo frequency 2.17Ghz and the RTX 4060 3072 CUDAcores at a turbofrequency 2.27Ghz. Both graphics cards support a memory interface 128-bit.
Finally, the RTX-4050 6GB comes with a turbo frequency 2.37Ghz. On February 22, the first laptops equipped with RTX 4070 and 4060 will be available for purchase starting at $999 The RTX 3080 graphics cards for laptops will offer similar performance, but consume 1/3 as much power at 1440p/80+fps.
