NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti vs NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU vs NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Max-Q

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti

► remove from comparison NVIDIA NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is high-end desktop graphics card based on the Ampere generation. It uses the big GA102 chip and offers 10,210 shaders and 12 GB GDDR6X graphics memory. The main difference to the expensive RTX 3090 is the reduced VRAM (12 vs. 24 GB and a slight reduction in the shader count (-256 shaders).

Therefore, the gaming performance is quite similar to the RTX 3090 and best suited for 4K gaming with maximum detail settings.

As the RTX 3090, the RTX 3080 Ti is specified with a 350 Watt TDP and therefore quite power hungry (750 Watt power supply recommended).

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU

► remove from comparison NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU or 3080 Mobile (for laptops, GN20-E7) is the fastest graphics card for notebooks in early 2021. It is based on the GA104-775-A1 Ampere chip and offers 8 or 16 GB GDDR6 graphics memory with a 256 Bit memory bus. It supports PCIe 4.0 and will be available in different variants from 80 - 150 Watt (TGP) (80, 90, 115, 125, 135, 145 and 150+ Watt). As package the notebook graphic card uses GB5-256 and the chip size is 40x40mm. The GPU supports eDP 1.4b to connect the internal monitor.

There is no more Max-Q variant (formerly used for the low power variants) but every OEM can choose to implement Max-Q technologies (Dynamic Boost, Whispermode).

The performance depends on the TGP setting and cooling of the laptop. At the same TGP level the RTX3080 should be faster than the old top model, the RTX 2080 Super Mobile and similar to the desktop RTX 3070. This means, the GPU should be well suited for 4k gaming or QHD with high frame rates. The similar named RTX 3080 desktop card is significantly faster.

The GA104 chip offers 6,144 FP32 ALUs of which half can also execute INT32 instructions (i.e. 3,072 INT32 ALUs). With Turing all shaders could still execute FP32 or INT32 instructions. The raytracing and tensor cores on the chip were also improved according to Nvidia. The Ampere chips also include an improved 5th generation video encoder (NVENC for H.264 and H.265) and a 7th generation decoder (for various formats now including AV1).

The GA104 chip is manufactured by Samsung in 8nm (8N), which is not quite able to keep up with the 7nm node at TSMC (e.g. used by AMD and also for the professional GA100 Ampere chip).

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Max-Q

► remove from comparison NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Max-Q

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Max-Q (for laptops, GN20-E5 Max-Q) is the former name for a RTX 3070 Laptop GPU with Max-Q technologies. In previous generations, the Max-Q name was used for low power versions. With the RTX 3000 series, every TGP-version can now use Max-Q technologies and all GPUs are called RTX 3070 Laptop GPU (80 - 125W).
