ASUS Publishes Full GeForce RTX 3000 Series Laptop GPU Specifications Including TGP and Frequency

On a request from Tweakers, ASUS has decided to reveal full GPU specifications for the entire laptop GPU lineup. Having NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 series GPUs in their laptops, companies were not committed to listing the TGP and whatever the GPU inside was a Max-Q or Max-P variant. That would confuse the average consumer and a GPU variant they got could be significantly slower than what they have expected. So to clear up the confusion, ASUS has decided to provide us with the table of GPU TGPs and frequencies found inside the company's laptops. Not only has ASUS published a table of TGPs and frequencies, but the company has also updated its website to reflect the exact TDP and exact frequency of any GPU used in a laptop to avoid any confusion and give consumers reassurance in their purchase. You can find the table of laptops with their exact GPU TGP and GPU clock speeds below.

What's the difference between TGP and maximum GPU power?
Is that with the power limit applied?

Max GPU power is TGP + dynamic boost, it is the maximum power allowed for the GPU to use. I guess the T in TGP come from Typical? Notice the 3080 in first paragraph has TGP and MAX both 150W.

Why bother...if you've already decided to buy anything with the Asus badge on it, you've already accepted that you're going to get ripped off with higher prices for no good reason.

Whilst we should commend ASUS for disclosing more detail, pricing of 3000 series equipped laptop from ASUS is pretty atrocious, the only one that is somewhat reasonably priced in my area is TUF A15, granted this time the TUF finally don't suck, but still, ASUS is still maintaining its premium pricing.

This isn't a launch announcement or product spec announcement, it's a specific detailing of the GPU configurations across their already announced laptops. Pricing has no relation to this whatsoever - they're telling us the power limits of the GPUs here. Pricing can be found in press releases for those products or at retailers stocking the products in question.

Looking at this and the range of GPUs I expect a few threads asking about flashing to the higher power limits. :shadedshu:

Higher prices are now out there on GPUs at Micro Center, GPUs that aren't ASUS.

MSI RTX 3070 Trio X model had an original MSRP of $560. A couple were available at my local Micro Center the other day and they were listed at $785.
Or how about the MSI RX 6800 Trio X model....originally priced (high over the normal MSRP of $650) at $850 is now currently available at Micro Center near me, but it's only priced at $1030.

The high prices are out and it's not just ASUS.

T means total. It's most probably the max sustained power allowed.

These are mobile GPUs, desktop GPU pricing has no relevance to this thread.

Oh dear. One would hope people read these specs beforehand, but I guess that's naively optimistic. Instead I guess we're getting a string of "Hay guise, can u halp me break my $2000 laptop plz thx okthxbye"

Yes, but it wasn't a comment directed about mobile GPUs. I was commenting on the fact that ASUS isn't the only that has raised prices.

Ooof, that 3060 in the Zephyrus G14 is going to struggle. 60W?

Don't quote me on this, but i believe the previous metric we used (TDP) was only a GPU die measurement, while TGP also includes GDDR6 chips and VRM power consumption.

Would love to know how many people would actually read this to make their purchase decision. If I'm to guess not a whole lot. Naming these GPUs something else is a much better method but no that would make too much sense :/

Well, sure, but this is a thread explicitly about mobile GPUs, so derailing it into a discussion of raised prices/brand tax (including the post you responded to) is just unnecessary.
Chrispy_Ooof, that 3060 in the Zephyrus G14 is going to struggle. 60W?
Yeah, that's harsh. I wonder if the 2060 in the previous G14 was similarly low. Clocks aren't terrible though, a ~10% drop for 25% less power from the 80W variants isn't bad - assuming real-world clocks match paper specs, of course. It'll probably be among the most efficient laptops out there, but definitely not among the fastest. And those numbers just make the concept of the Flow X13+XG Mobile all the more enticing. Now, if I only had ~35000 SEK to spend on a laptop ... :rolleyes: All joking aside, I'm really hoping they make an RTX 3060 version of the XG Mobile.

Holy I got my 6800XY for 1149 CAD or $899 CAD. I am glad I now that I git mine near MSI's suggested price.

It seems they didn't have much of a choice.

Any directive from Nvidia about clarity of specs should have been directed at retailers and on sellers.
I have no doubts they won't differentiate between top models with a 3080/3090 and base TUF models etc, and consumers will expect the same performance from both due to the "same" GPU.

Good!

Seeing a brand advertise the true hardware specs is the kind of thing that'd make me buy from them

You don't need to worry about it because you'll never have a chance to buy it.
ETH miners will buy all before they arrive in your town.

Here are at least some of the prices. I'm not sure if all prices are known at this point.

I sincerely doubt crypto miners are going to start using laptops in their farms...

Seriously, can people stop trying to make this into a discussion of desktop GPU prices?
