NVIDIA announces GeForce RTX 40 Laptop GPU series, RTX 4090 with 9728 CUDAs and 16GB GDDR6 memory

NVIDIA kicks off CES 2023 with RTX 40 Laptop GPU launch

NVIDIA is officially announcing its RTX 40 series for laptops.

The company confirmed today it will introduce a new flagship RTX 40 mobile series for enthusiasts.

NVIDIA RTX 40 series based on Ada Lovelace architecture will feature 5th Gen Max-Q technologies, such as ultra-low voltage GDDR6 memory or tri-speed memory controllers. The architecture will also support the latest AI technologies such as DLSS 3 upscaling.

The company is splitting the launch of their mobile GPUs into enthusiast RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 GPUs and RTX 4070, 4060 and 4050 mid-tier graphics.

NVIDIA RTX 4090 Laptop GPU features AD103 GPU with 9728 CUDA cores. Such configuration is already used by desktop RTX 4080 card. The 4090 is a successor to the Ampere-based RTX 3080 Ti GPU which was locked to a similar max TGP of 150W (note this does not include Dynamic Boost).

NVIDIA is confirming that this card will offer 38.9 TFLOPS of single-precision compute performance, so almost the same level as desktop RTX 4070 Ti. However, it is nowhere near desktop RTX 4090 which should be twice as fast.

The RTX 4080 GPU is to feature AD104 with 7424 CUDA cores and 12GB GDDR6 memory. Just like the RTX 4090 this model will also be locked to 150W TGP, however the lowest tier variant may appear with 60W TGP (so make sure to check the laptop specs before buying).

NVIDIA RTX 4070 Laptop GPU is to feature AD106 GPU with 4608 CUDA cores, clocked up to 2.175 GHz. This card will operate within the 35W to 115W range and the same range will apply to RTX 4060 and RTX 4050 class laptops. The 4070 features 8GB of GDDR6 memory across a 128-bit memory bus, and again the same configuration is used by RTX 4060.

NVIDIA’s lowest tier of RTX 40 Laptop GPUs will feature the AD107 GPU. The RTX 4060 is to feature 3072 CUDA cores while the RTX 4050 will debut with 2560 cores. The latter is equipped with 6GB of GDDR6 memory and a 96-bit memory bus.

NVIDIA confirmed today that RTX 40 Laptop GPUs will start at $999. The cheaper 4070/4060/4050 class GPUs will be available starting from February 22nd, while the RTX 4080/4090 series will launch two weeks earlier (February 8th). The starting price for the enthusiast laptops is more than $1999.
