NVIDIA today unveiled the Ampere-based GeForce RTX 30 mobile series. Last year, the Ryzen 4000 series mobile processors were mostly used with RTX 2060, but this year we are dealing with a different situation.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 mobile series introduced
The flagship GeForce RTX 3080 graphics cards have a GA104 GPU with 6144 CUDA cores and up to 16 GB of GDDR6 memory. This GPU is used by high-end gaming laptops that provide 100+ FPS in ultra-quality 1440p games.
For laptops, the RTX 3070 has 5120 CUDA cores and 8 GB of GDDR6 memory. This graphics card will be offered on high-end gaming laptops offering a minimum of 90 FPS in 1440p games.
Finally, the RTX 3060 will be mobile based on the GA106 GPU with 3840 CUDA cores and 6GB of memory. This video card, which delivers high performance from the center of 1080p games, comes with laptops in the $ 999 price range.
NVIDIA today announced that laptops with GeForce RTX 30 mobile GPUs will be available January 26.
The customizable BAR function is supported
NVIDIA has confirmed that its new GPUs will support Resizable BAR, a technology that allows processors to use the full memory of graphics cards. This feature is initially available on Intel Tiger Lake-H35 CPUs.
NVIDIA stated that they will add support for this feature through GeForce Game Ready drivers and the Resizable BAR feature will be compatible with both Intel and AMD processor systems. Support on both AMD and Intel platforms can give NVIDIA an advantage as AMD’s solution only works with Ryzen 5000 series and compatible X570 motherboards. The new driver would be available at the end of February at the same time as the GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card.
This technology does not require you to invest in a PCIe Gen 4 platform as it is also supported by PCIe Gen 3. Based on what we know so far, BAR essentially determines how much discrete GPU memory space can be allocated, and today’s computers are. typically limited to 256 MB of allocated memory. AMD claims that with SAM they can access all GPU memory and eliminate all bottlenecks to deliver faster performance.
AMD showed up to 11 percent performance improvements over NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30 series, which could turn the competitive edge in AAA games upside down. Similar gains are expected for NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 30 GPUs.
