Nvidia might be readying an RTX 3080 Ti laptop computer graphics card if the rumor mill is to be believed.
Hypothesis about higher-end pocket book GPUs from Nvidia has been flying round for fairly a while now, though earlier leaks from a couple of months or so again pointed to the opportunity of an RTX 3080 Tremendous mannequin (plus 3070 Tremendous for that matter).
This recent spillage has pinned the Ti label, somewhat than Tremendous branding, on the purportedly incoming RTX 3080 variant, with the speculation being that this product will probably be primarily based on Nvidia’s GA103 GPU (GN20-E8), as famous in a tweet from Matthew Smith which VideoCardz noticed (Smith is the keeper of TechPowerUp’s GPU database).

The leak, as VideoCardz explains, truly originates from any individual posting on a PCI Machine ID database with the deal with ‘Faintsnow’ who’s presumed to work for a graphics card maker. Faintsnow added the small print of the GPU and confirmed that it’ll be the ‘GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop computer GPU’ when questioned on what Nvidia’s title for this graphics answer could be.
No different particulars are offered right here, so the data imparted is admittedly skinny on the bottom.
Evaluation: Some type of high-end laptop computer GPU inbound for early 2022?
Clearly, we have to preserve a wholesome sense of skepticism concerning the veracity of this, as that authentic supply is a murky one, actually.
That stated, it is a rumor which has been kicking round for some time, and it does appear a possible transfer for Nvidia to launch a laptop computer GPU with extra oomph within the near-ish future – beforehand the grapevine has held that this cell graphics card (or playing cards) might be unveiled early in 2022. That means we could be a CES launch in January 2022, and if that’s the case, we’d anticipate to be listening to much more from the rumor mill on this GPU in brief order.
There was some controversy prior to now about whether or not the supposed RTX 3080 Ti or Tremendous would possibly step up from the GA104 employed within the pocket book RTX 3080 card to make use of the GA103 as indicated right here, as a result of as chances are you’ll recall common rumor peddler Kopite7kimi – who first spilled the products on the GA103 laptop computer chip – stated at one level that it was fairly doubtless canceled.
Kopite7kimi chimed in with this newest leak, as nicely, speculating that possibly this new discovery might even be an RTX 3090 cell, not a 3080 Ti. On the naming entrance, it ought to be famous that Nvidia has by no means used the Ti suffix for a cell GPU, so there’s that to keep in mind too in the case of the title guessing sport.
No matter it finally ends up being referred to as, the chance that Nvidia nonetheless has a extra highly effective high-end laptop computer GPU within the wings, ready to step up and develop into the brand new flagship for Ampere in gaming notebooks, is unquestionably nonetheless alive.
