That NVIDIA has outdone itself with the latest generation of graphics cards is undeniableand the last example is found in the GeForce RTX 4090 Mobile, in further proof that, still constrained by the limitations of laptops (consumption, temperature, legal regulations, etc.), its chips based on the Ada Lovelace architecture Whether built into desktop or laptop graphics adapters, they deliver exceptional performance.
In the comparison between generations, just a few days ago we told you that the GeForce RTX 4060 for laptops performs up to 65% more than the RTX 3060, a huge leap in performance, to which we must also add the additional advantages that come from all the software developed by NVIDIA to get the most out of the specifications and features of its graphics, such as improvements in intelligent rescaling and frame generation, both thanks to DLSS 3.
Now, it is even more impressive to know that a laptop chip can improve performance to the absolute top of the range of the previous generation for desktop. At this point we must remember, once again, that although desktop and laptop graphics share the same nomenclature, they are obviously different chips, in the same way that, in many respects, we cannot compare a laptop with a desktop. We can’t, out of common sense, expect the same performance from an integrated chip in a laptop with that of a graphics card that has the same size and higher power consumption than said laptop, right?
Thus, the most common comparisons are those of the format that I mentioned above, RTX 4060 Mobile vs RTX 3060 Mobile and the like, since they are the ones that allow us to assign a refined quantitative value to the evolution between generations. However, it is also interesting to establish other comparisons, as they help us to understand even more the value of the qualitative leap. Thus, it is in that context that a test like this makes so much sense.
Thus, as we can read in Vccftech, an overclocked GeForce RTX 4090 Mobile has managed to outperform the desktop RTX 3090 Ti. Let’s remember that the RTX 3090 Ti is the top of the range of the previous generation, with the following specifications:
- GA102 GPU manufactured in 8nm process.
- 10,752 shaders.
- 336 texturing units.
- 112 raster units.
- 336 tensor cores.
- 84 cores RT.
- 384-bit bus.
- 24 GB of GDDR6X memory at 21 Gbps.
- Bandwidth of 1,018 TB/s.
- Power in FP32: 40 TFLOPs.
- TGP: 450 watts.
We are talking, therefore, about a graphics card that earned the nickname “The Beast”, due to its specifications and performance.
As we can read in said publication, the Reddit user u/Kelzs decided to maximize the performance of a Razer Blade 18, one of the systems included in the GeForce RTX 40 Studio family. For this purpose, he used MSI Afterburner, one of the reference applications in the world of overclocking. graphics cards, whether desktop or laptop. With this application, he was able to increase the clock frequency of the RTX 4090 Mobile by +250 megahertz, for which the cooling system of the Razer laptop was key.
Thus, with the system stable after making the adjustment, he proceeded to measure its performance with 3DMark Time Spy, which awarded it no less than 20,960 points, which puts it above the desktop RTX 3090 Ti. Obviously this is not recommended for all users, for all laptops or for all uses, but it is a very interesting test of how far this new generation of graphics adapters can go, which has the GeForce RTX 4090 Mobile at its peak of performance. spectrum.
