Early this year, NVIDIA released the ultimate powerhouse for realizing desktop-grade high-performance gaming in a portable form which is the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti Laptop GPU. The performance increase brought by the Ampere architecture over the last-gen Turing counterpart has skyrocketed so much that the difference in gaming between desktop and laptop is not actually that far off already. Plus, the inclusion of a screen, keyboard, speakers, and more makes laptop gaming a much more compelling choice for most gamers that can’t afford the space to put up a PC setup.

In case you haven’t realized how strong both of these cards are, we’ll give you a little refresh/introduction to them.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU

Firstly, the king of the crowd which is the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti is packed with 16GB of GDDR6 VRAM which is the fastest in the industry right now, and paired with 7424 CUDA cores, it is faster than the desktop-class TITAN RTX and can easily tear through any modern games at max graphics settings, 1440p resolution while maintaining 120+ FPS.

Meanwhile, the second-in-line GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is not too shabby as well with 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM and 5888 CUDA cores that achieves 70% more performance than the GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER where it can hold itself to 1440p gaming with an average 100FPS in max graphical settings as well. The main attractive point is its immense price-to-performance ratio that leverages a 20 frames difference against the RTX 3080 Ti but is USD1000 cheaper!

4th Gen Max-Q Technologies – Smarter and Flexible Power Management

If you’re coming from the older years, you might have recognized the Max-Q tag as the low-powered laptop version of a GPU but not anymore starting with the 3rd generation as they have rebranded it into a software-delivered feature set that gamers can access without any hardware restriction. Let’s run you through what’s new in the 4th Gen Max-Q Technologies.

CPU Optimizer

4th Gen Max Q Technologies 1

The CPU Optimizer function is one of the reasons why Max-Q Technologies is created in the first place as it is more feasible to shift power between the CPU and GPU, depending on which side is more task loaded, than just feeding both with unnecessary power. In the latest revision, NVIDIA has worked with vendors to develop a low-level framework to take the optimization game even further, ensuring gaming performance on the mobile device is guaranteed at all times.

Rapid Core Scaling

4th Gen Max Q Technologies 2

Not everyone needs the full core power when doing their daily tasks and that speaks true to apps like Adobe Premiere Pro, Blender, MatLab, and more, which requires higher core burst frequencies rather than multi-core load spreading. As a result, the Rapid Core Scaling feature is born to alleviate the issue by directing power to the most utilized cores to achieve as much as 3 times more performance while running in battery mode.

Battery Boost 2.0

4th Gen Max Q Technologies 3

Needless to say, everyone wants longer battery life in their portable device and that includes gaming laptops too thanks to the overhaul given to the Battery Boost 2.0 feature, gamers can put this worry away as the smart AI algorithm is now fully in charge of balancing the power draw by factoring in several aspects like CPU usage, GPU utilization, battery discharge rate, frame rate, image quality, and more, all in real-time. As a result, up to 70% more battery life can be achieved compared to the last-gen iteration.
