In the early morning of January 13, NVIDIA officially launched the RTX 30 series of mobile graphics cards at the CES 2021 exhibition. Ampere-based GPUs have also reached the mobile terminal, mainly including RTX 3080, RTX 3070 and RTX 3060 models.
In addition to improving game performance, RTX 30 series mobile graphics cards have 2 times the energy efficiency of the previous generation and support the third-generation Max-Q technology, mainly supporting Dynamic Boost 2.0 dynamic acceleration technology, WisperMode 2.0 noise control, Resizable BAR (similar to AMD SAM technology) and DLSS.
The third-generation Max-Q technology uses AI and new system optimizations to make high-performance gaming laptops faster and more powerful than ever. These technologies include:
·Dynamic Boost 2.0: The CPU and GPU power of traditional gaming notebooks are fixed, while games and creative applications are dynamic, and the requirements for the system will vary with the number of frames. With Dynamic Boost 2.0, the AI network will balance and continuously optimize the power consumption of CPU, GPU, and GPU memory as needed to achieve the highest performance.
·WhisperMode 2.0: WhisperMode brings a new level of voice control to the game, and it is redesigned and customized to each laptop. Once the desired mode is selected, the I algorithm of WhisperMode 2.0 will manage the CPU, GPU, system temperature and fan speed to bring the best noise control performance.
Resizable BAR: This advanced PCI Express technology allows the CPU to access all GPU memory at one time, bringing performance improvements to many games.
NVIDIA DLSS: NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling Technology) uses AI and RTX Tensor Cores, which can bring up to 2 times the performance improvement under the same power consumption.
To process a frame at 1440 resolution, a single GPU needs to calculate nearly 4 million pixels, while NVIDIA DLSS only needs to process a small number of pixels, thereby improving efficiency and improving performance.
The main specifications of RTX 30 series mobile graphics cards are as follows:
The RTX 3080 notebook graphics card has 6144 CUDA cores, a TDP upper limit of 150W, a frequency of 1245-1710MHz, a 256bit width, and 8 or 16GB of video memory.
