    RTX 3070 Laptop core counts not matching spec

    That's not how mobile GPUs work. Yes they're cut down from their desktop variants, but they still have an official spec. That spec is 5120 cores for a mobile RTX 3070. Laptop manufacturers don't have the freedom to change that number. If the laptop design can't handle that chip due to power or...

    RTX 3070 Laptop core counts not matching spec

    If Alienware started selling a Ryzen 5800X system but with two cores disabled, that's not "following the SOP". It's trying to pass off a 5600X as a 5800X and charging more for it. Some other terms that come to mind are "false advertising" and "fraud". Luckily what happened here was a simple...

    RTX 3070 Laptop core counts not matching spec

    Thank you everyone for the input. Nvidia control panel confirms the same as # of CUDA cores as GPU-Z, so no discrepancies there. Some braver folks than me did flash the GPU with a different VBIOS, with the result being that the # of shaders went up...

    RTX 3070 Laptop core counts not matching spec

    Thanks W1zzard! It seems then that this is either a VBIOS bug or really a cut down version of the RTX 3070 laptop GPU. Appreciate your input.

    RTX 3070 Laptop core counts not matching spec

    Hello everyone, I'm new here so apologies if this has been answered before. Over on Reddit, we're trying to understand why the RTX 3070 in our Alienware M15 R5 laptops have fewer CUDA cores than spec. An RTX 3070 laptop GPU should have 5120, but multiple people have reported GPU-Z and HWInfo...
