Nvidia may be working on a GeForce RTX 3080 Ti laptop variant. This is according to information from Matthew Smith, who maintains TechPowerUp’s GPU database. The video card will have a GA103 chip. More specifications are still unknown.
Matthew Smith writes on twitter The alleged GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Mobile will use a GA103 GPU. Writes VideoCardz, based on a conversation with Smith, a laptop video card was recently added to it From the PCI Device Identifier database.
The card was submitted by someone with the username Faintsnow, who initially added a codename GN20-E8 to the database with ID 2420. This submission was later updated by the same users with the product name GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU and chip type GA103.
It hasn’t been confirmed whether Faintsnow adds GPUs to the PCI database very often, and Nvidia has never released a Ti video card for its laptop in this high-end market segment. Usually, the manufacturer only releases low-position Ti GPUs for laptops. At the same time, VideoCardz notes that the PCI database is usually updated by people who work for GPU vendors.
No video card with GA103 GPU has appeared before. Nvidia’s current lineup of RTX 30 cards consists of models with GA102, GA104, GA106, and GA107 chipsets. The RTX 3080 Ti has never been released for laptops before. A recent leak indicated that Nvidia is also working on a range of RTX 30 Super graphics cards. So it is also possible that the video card will be given a different product name, such as the RTX 3080 Super. Well-known Nvidia leaker kopite7kimi speculate on Twitter The GPU can also be offered as the RTX 3090M.
