It’s only been two weeks since AIDA64 teased the existence of an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti GPU for laptops, but sources with VideoCardz have already shared some of the new mobile flagship’s purported specifications.

According to the publication’s sources, NVIDIA is bolstering its GeForce RTX 3080 Ti laptop GPU with 16 GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 16 Gbps, a 2 Gbps improvement over the mobile GeForce RTX 3080. Users who purchase a premium gaming laptop that leverages the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti may encounter a bit of increased heat, however, as the GPU is said to feature a subsystem power of 175 watts, around 10 watts more than the current mobile flagship.

“It should be noted that maximum TGP is based on the configurable graphics card power with the addition of NVIDIA Dynamic Boost 2.0 technology (which shifts the power between CPU and GPU),” VideoCardz clarified.

“Officially, RTX 3080 specs go to 150W+, but there are high-end laptops designs with 165W max TGP. With this in mind, RTX 3080 Ti TGP of 175W does not sound like a huge power uplift, however is unclear if is the actual limit, or something that laptop manufacturers will still be able to adjust.”

NVIDIA is also reportedly planning a Titanium variant of the GeForce RTX 3070 laptop GPU that features 8 GB of GDDR6 memory and a max TGP of up to 150 watts. These products are expected to be unveiled during CES 2022, the media days of which begin on January 3.

    My nuts roasting over an open GPU.

    I mean chestnuts roasting over an open GPU.

    Yeah, that is it.

    175W in a laptop form factor is ballsy

    I’ve got an older MSI GT80 Titan laptop that has 2x GTX 980m’s in SLI that draws upwards of 330W. That thing is a freakish beast. It also has two RAID chips so I’ve got 2x M.2 256 GB drives for the OS and then another 2x 512 GB dries for games and on top of that another 1 TB hybrid drive. Also upgraded with 32 GB 2133 Mhz DDR3 ram.

    Not a lot of battery time I assume.

    Yeah, if I used all the tricks I could use it for light stuff for about two hours. It did have an option to switch over to the IGP which was nice for browsing, work, or streaming. Gaming was useless unless plugged in because the drivers nerfed the power draw. Even then it might last an hour. Basically, it was a portable desktop.

    I always appreciated that this series had keycaps resembling a normal f*cking keyboard. I like my laptops with numpads too. I think the numpad on this one is also the trackpad? Nice use of space. Also Cherry MX switches, I think I recall from an Anandtech review of a similar model?

    Yep, right on all accounts. I thought the trackpad/Numpad idea was neat but I never quite got used to it. The responsiveness was a bit wonky. The only thing I didn’t like about the keyboard is the MSI does this thing where they use the same font/letter for E, M, and W. They just rotate it per the letter which unfortunately means they never look quite right. Sad to say they still do that. My new GP 66 Leopard has the same style. However, it also came with some gold replaceable keycaps that I never put on because the letters were solid which meant it didn’t let the RGB pass through.

    Overall though I loved that thing. Back when SLI was a thing those 980m’s could rock most things at 1080p/60+ fps at max settings. I still have it and use it for ripping media for the home server. The hardware encode is still moderately fast. Occasionally we’ll take it out on the patio for a big-screen experience to watch something but for the most part, we use a Galaxy Tab S7+ for that. My only other complaint about it was the speakers. MSI bragged about them but honestly, they were crap compared to the ones on a [URL=’https://www.newegg.com/fusion-x2-finish-in-red-horizon-toshiba-qosmio-x775-3dv78/p/N82E16834214392′]Toshiba 3D laptop[/URL] it replaced.

    Oh well dang, that’s pretty f*ckin’ lazy.

    I was wondering about that touch-based numpad. Oh well.

    Otherwise that laptop sounds pretty awesome. Wish more laptop manufacturers would do keyboards like these.
