Nvidia released their mobile GPUs for laptops yesterday and have really changed the game! However, there are some things that might not come true with all the flare of the new mobile GPUs.
What is the price to performance boost you can expect?
Surprisingly, Nvidia has managed to keep the new GPUs at around the same power consumption levels as their predecessors. Coupling this with the insane performance that they deliver, and you have an awesome machine in your hands. After all, you are getting roughly DOUBLE the CUDA cores with the same power consumption. The efficiency of the new GPUs is insane.
To give you some perspective, Nvidia claims that the new RTX 3060 mobile GPU will deliver more performance than the mobile RTX 2080 Super. The RTX 3070 will also deliver roughly 50% more performance than the RTX 2070. Although, in all honestly, these claims should be taken with a grain of salt because Nvidia might just be trying to hype up their own products.
The RTX 3080, which is expected to blow the other GPUs out of the water will probably retail for more than $1900. Thus, if you’re looking absolutely killer performance, you might have to shell out some serious bucks.
The RTX 3060 and 3070 laptops are expected to retail for around $999 and $1299 respectively. The RTX 3060 probably looks like the best deal here because it gives you the biggest performance boost for the most affordable price.
AMD is starting to take over as well!
Many companies are now accepting AMD as their main CPU component provider. This comes after Asus integrated AMD 5000 series processors in its top-of-the-line laptops even though 11th Gen Intel processors are also available.
The Asus G15 laptop will be sporting an RTX 3080 and a Ryzen 5900H. This is good for most gamers as companies start to get more competitive, so will the prices. If anything, we hope that a balance will be established by Intel’s Rocket Lake. This would stop AMD from hiking the prices too much because of its superior market share.
