Graphics giant NVIDIA is preparing new display cards for laptops on the mobile side as well as desktop platform. Last week, we mentioned that GA103 silicon will be used in the RTX 3080 Ti or RTX 3090 model. According to a report from the PCI-ID Repository, the green team is working on the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti mobile GPU.
NVIDIA hasn’t officially announced the 3070 Ti yet, but the GPU is said to be still in the prototype stage and geared up for new gaming laptops. Judging by the other details in the warehouse, the new variant will use the GA104 GPU die, which is the same as the RTX 3080 and RTX 3070.
We don’t know how many CUDA cores the GPU will contain or its power limit. The RTX 3080 mobile is equipped with 6144 CUDA cores, while the RTX 3070 mobile has 5120 CUDA cores. Therefore, we can expect a core count of around 5600 in the RTX 3070 Ti mobile version.
Power requirements should also be similar to the 3080 and 3070. The RTX 3080 maxes out at 150+W and the 3070 goes up to 125W. Therefore, the 3070 Ti mobile is likely to be in the 130-140W range.
The only area where the RTX 3070 Ti laptop GPU can show itself will be in price-enhancing. Because more cores are disabled in the GA104 die, the RTX 3070 Ti will be slightly cheaper than the RTX 3080. This means that NVIDIA can use the defective wafers produced for the production of the RTX 3080 in the RTX 3070 Ti variant.
