Can GPU-Z differentiate the mobile 3060 versions?

I'd like to know if GPU-Z can tell me which RTX 3060 is in a laptop - for example the 80W or 115W version. The GPU database lists them all as 1 card.
I thought I could maybe differentiate them by their clocks as card notes suggest (they end at 115W though, what is the 130W card then?), but I don't know if it pulls the clocks from the database or somehow gets them from card's bios?
Also, I can use Render test and check Sensors, but I don't know if these Watts are supposed to be "Board Power Draw" or "GPU Chip Power Draw".

No power limit listed?

can you try starting gpuz while some kind of 3d load is running in the background so that the nvidia gpu is awake?

Sure.
I tried starting it while running OCCT, 3060 GPU at 100%. The Advanced-Bios tab in GPU-Z looks still the same:

Oh ok.. I thought the BIOS tab was empty. Please upload the BIOS using GPU-Z and send me the link. I'll try to adjust my parser for the new power limit table format

As for nvidia, TDP means maximum total board power draw (at least for desktop, but I think for mobile as well). AMD Specifies chip power draw, and lets the rest of the board use whatever it wishes.

Try monitoring your GPU while running some intensive 3D app with Vsync off, like 3DMark Time Spy. Whatever you see as the maximum value (+- a few W) at "Board Power Draw" should be your card's TDP.
