The idea of fitting an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4090 into a gaming laptop may sound absurd (because it is), but apparently this doesn’t stop Team Green from trying. Well, kind of, because these mobile models may not use the same GPU matrix as in their desktop counterparts.
While it was a given that the Nvidia RTX 4000 series would make its way into the top gaming laptop models, Team Green has so far been silent about its plans to bring its Lovelace pixel pushers to the mobile market.
Now, a slide posted by leaker hw_reveal (via Videocardz) appears to confirm that the RTX 4090, RTX 4080 Ti, RTX 4070, RTX 4060 Ti, and RTX 4060 may soon be making their way to portable PCs.
However, the best graphics card in this range can be built with a ‘GN21-X11’ GPU chip, which kopite7kimi claims is based on the same AD103 chip found in the RTX 4080, not the AD102 used in the RTX 4090. This step-by-step pattern seems to apply to the rest of the series as well, but it remains to be seen how they compare to their desktop counterparts.
We can only hope that buying a laptop with AMD RDNA 3 will be a much easier affair, but Team Red has yet to formally unveil its new Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards, both desktop and mobile.
