Nvidiaâ€™s next-gen graphics have finally arrived in notebooks, and as you can see in our GeForce RTX 3080 laptop GPU review, the mobile version of Team Green â€œAmpereâ€� architecture spits out frames at blazingly fast rates. But the performance you get from mobile RTX 30-series graphics chips wonâ€™t necessarily be equal, even between two laptops with the same hardware inside.
One GeForce RTX 3070 laptop might not be as fast as another, for example. And itâ€™s even possible that in some cases a slower GPU could theoretically be faster than pricier models. Yes, you might (might) see a GeForce RTX 3070 laptop that can match or possibly outperform an RTX 3080 laptop in some games, though weâ€™ll need to see more reviews trickle in before we can state that definitively. Regardless, youâ€™re going to want to do a lot more homework than before when youâ€™re shopping for a gaming laptop.
