We’ve been hearing more about the mobile versions for the GeForce RTX 30 series recently. From recommended system configurations and price points to a possible sample for a GeForce RTX 3070, details have been emerging. The latest revolve around specs that were posted on a manufacturer’s website. VideoCardz (via Notebookcheck) managed to snag them before they were taken down.

The GeForce RTX 3060 may be the least powerful, but it could end up surpassing the previous GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER. Next is the GeForce RTX 3070, whose CUDA cores outnumber those of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. It also has less memory, so don’t expect a lot in terms of 4K gaming. Lastly, there’s the new mobile flagship GeForce RTX 3080. A first for the GeForce RTX mobile GPUs could be a variant featuring 16 GB of memory. Combined with its 6144 CUDA cores, this could easily game at 4K or higher refresh rates at lower resolutions.

NVIDIA mobile GPUs often come in two versions, Max-Q and Max-P. Besides that, there have been other versions with varying clock speeds and power specifications. This means that even if these specs are accurate, there are likely other iterations. In any case, powerful GPUs are on the horizon for mobile gaming or work. NVIDIA is expected to announce these on January 12.

  1. Aren’t the mobile specs the same as the desktop, more or less? Boost monitors temp and TDP, the laptop OEM can set those targets based on the hardware config. Seems like Max Q is more or less just some special binning to find some chips that might clock a bit higher at a lower TDP.
