Early benchmark scores for some of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 40 Series laptop GPUs have begun surfacing online, and they suggest that the new Ada Lovelace parts for notebook users will offer marked performance improvements over the existing GeForce RTX 30 Series, including premium desktop models.
According to new numbers that were spotted on Geekbench, the GeForce RTX 4090 laptop GPU can boost up to 2,040 MHz and is capable of achieving a 210,290 OpenCL score on the Geekbench 5 benchmark, which, based on some of the comparisons that have been shared online, suggests that the new mobile flagship can best the GeForce RTX 3090, a desktop-grade GPU, in that category of performance.
The GeForce RTX 3090, one of NVIDIA’s flagship Ampere graphics card for gamers and creators, features 10,496 CUDA cores and 24 GB of GDDR6X memory, while the GeForce RTX 4090 laptop GPU appears to feature 9,728 CUDA cores and 16 GB of memory, just like the GeForce RTX 4080.
Potential performance numbers for the GeForce RTX 4060 laptop GPU also surfaced today courtesy of a leaked 3DMark test that suggests this weaker Ada Lovelace option for mobile gamers can reach a score of 10,050 in Time Spy, a number that would make it 20% faster than the GeForce RTX 3060 laptop GPU, and faster than AMD’s Radeon RX 6700M, according to further comparisons that have been shared online.
The GeForce RTX 4060 is rumored to feature 8 GB of GDDR6 memory, while a TGP of anywhere between 85 watts and 140 watts has been speculated.
NVIDIA is expected to announce its GeForce RTX 40 Series laptop GPUs during its GeForce Beyond event, which is set for Tuesday, January 3, 2023, 8 a.m. Pacific Time (UTC-8).
The GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, a third Ada Lovelace desktop graphics card for gamers and creators, should also be announced during the event.
