NVIDIA "GA103" GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Laptop GPU SKU Pictured

When NVIDIA announced the appearance of the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti mobile graphics card, we were left with a desire to see just what the GA103 silicon powering the GPU looks like. And thanks to the Chinese YouTuber Geekerwan, we have the first pictures of the GPU. Pictured below is GA103S/GA103M SKU with GN20-E8-A1 labeling. It features 58 SMs that make up for 7424 CUDA cores in total. The number of Tensor cores for this SKU is set to 232, while there are 58 RT cores. NVIDIA has decided to pair this GPU with a 256-bit memory bus and 16 GB GDDR6 memory.

As it turns out, the full GA103 silicon has a total of 7680 CUDA cores and a 320-bit memory bus, so this mobile version is a slightly cut-down variant. It sits perfectly between GA104 and GA102 SKUs, providing a significant improvement to the core count of GA104 silicon. Power consumption of the GA103 SKU for GeForce RTX 3080 Ti mobile is set to a variable 80-150 Watt range, which can be adjusted according to the system's cooling capacity. An interesting thing to point out is a die size of 496 mm², which is a quarter more significant compared to GA104, for a quarter higher number of CUDA cores.

So a fully enabled GA103 on desktop would replace the RTX 3080 10 GB as the new 10 GB card. The new lineup would look something like:

RTX 3070/Ti 8 GB (GA104)
RTX 3070 Super 10 GB (GA103)
RTX 3080/Ti 12 GB (GA102)
RTX 3090/Ti 24 GB (GA102)

There is bound to be a 16GB 3070Ti based on GA103

yeah laptops are insane. AMD had a sweet deal about 5 weeks ago, rx 6800m laptop was $1399 on best buy. i kind of regret not getting it. price is back up now to 1649 sadly.

Those laptop are cheap for a reason, from buggy softwares to poor LM application that could kill hardware (like the image above)

They did fix it, ASUS responded directly in Best Buy Q&A and all new models now have that issue fixed.

I am avoiding all gaming laptops best I can... Nvidia announced 3070 ti laptops were expected to cost 1400-1600, I was planning to get one of those, but low and behold the cheapest one is $2500.

I'm pretty much just giving up at this point. I don't make enough money to be dropping money like that.

I see 8 memory chips in the pictures. How does that add up to the 320-bit bus?

Edit: Sorry, I forgot that it's a cut-down variant with a 256-bit bus. In this case, I'm wondering how many more cut-down Ampere chips will nvidia release.
