The Nvidia RTX 3060, 3070, And 3080 Laptop GPUs Were Revealed In A Massive Leak

The website of a gaming PC manufacturer lists RTX 30 laptops before removing them.

When Nvidia released the RTX 30 GPU family late last year, it gave the best gaming PCs a huge boost, with even the upcoming 3060 Ti reportedly outperforming the previous heavyweight 2080 Ti on a slew of benchmarks.

Those who enjoy PC gaming on the go, on the other hand, have yet to see an upgrade in the best gaming laptops. For the time being, Nvidia’s most powerful mobile GPU is the 2080 Super. While that chipset is no slouch, enabling ray tracing and impressive VR performance on the go, it is no match for the next generation of Ampere GPUs.

Thankfully, it appears that the mobile cousins of the RTX 30 family are on their way, and will be with us very soon. Twitter user @momomo us discovered a now-deleted listing on the website of Dutch PC manufacturer Skikk. Before its removal, the page displayed several gaming laptops competing with an Nvidia RTX 3060 with 6GB GDDR6 memory, an RTX 3070 Max-Q with 8GB GDDR6, and an RTX 3080 Max-Q with a whopping 16GB GDDR6 RAM.

To be clear, just because a product has the same name as a desktop equivalent does not imply that it will perform at the same level. Not only do these mobile chips appear to use GDDR6 memory rather than the GDDR6X found in their bulkier siblings, but the portable nature of laptops necessitates GPU pairing back for cooling and battery reasons. To compensate for performance losses elsewhere, the mobile RTX 3080 appears to get an extra 6GB RAM over the desktop version.

Still, Nvidia’s mobile RTX 20 chips delivered some impressive performance, bringing the joys of ray tracing to the small, portable screen, and we’re excited to see what the company can do with the next generation of laptop GPUs.

We probably won’t have to wait long for all of this to become official. CES 2021 begins on January 11, and Nvidia has already scheduled a “GeForce RTX: Game On” event for that day. While this could simply be the official announcement of the 3060 and 3080 Ti, we’d be surprised if there wasn’t also a mention of the RTX 30 family coming to laptops, given that the company has previously used CES shows to unveil new mobile GPUs.
