XMG Announces APEX Laptop Family with up to Ryzen 9 5900HX and GeForce RTX 3070 Processors

With the 15.6 and 17.3 inch XMG APEX gaming laptops, XMG is positioning a new model series below its own high-end range consisting of the NEO and PRO series. These new laptops combine mobile AMD eight-core processors up to the Ryzen 9 5900HX with NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics cards up to the RTX 3070. The company is simultaneously introducing the XMG FOCUS, a new product series in the entry-level segment. Intel's Core i7-11800H and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti offer decent gaming performance, while good connectivity and memory round off the overall package. All four new models feature an IPS display with 144 Hz.

Until now, the XMG APEX 15 in the older E20 generation represented uncompromising desktop CPU performance, with processors up to the Ryzen 9 3950X in a laptop. Although XMG is already working on a direct successor under a slightly different name, it is unleashing the XMG APEX 15 and APEX 17 of the M21 generation for the time being with the currently fastest eight-core mobile processors from AMD. The laptops are available with an AMD Ryzen 7 5800H as well as with the slightly faster Ryzen 9 5900HX from the 54 watt TDP class, as well as with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 or RTX 3060 in the respective maximum TGP configuration (RTX 3070: 125 watts plus 15 watts Dynamic Boost 2.0; RTX 3060: 115 watts plus 15 watts Dynamic Boost 2.0).

TechPowerUp GPU-Z v2.41.0 Released

TechPowerUp today released the latest version of TechPowerUp GPU-Z, the popular graphics subsystem, information, monitoring, and diagnostic utility. The latest Version 2.41.0 comes with support for the Windows 11 operating system (ongoing pre-release builds), including the ability to tell if the graphics driver conforms to WDDM 3.0 standard. Support is also added for current and upcoming GPUs, including Radeon RX 6600 XT, Radeon PRO W6800, W6600; NVIDIA CMP 90HX, 50HX, 40HX, 30H; and RTX 3050 Laptop GPUs based on GA107-B.

TechPowerUp GPU-Z v2.41.0 also improves on several fronts. We've improved the TMU count estimation algorithm for unknown (upcoming) NVIDIA GPUs, as well as clock speed detection on AMD RDNA2-based Radeon PRO GPUs. The GPU-Z installer now adds version number of the installed GPU-Z to the Control Panel Add/Remove Programs list, to better work with Winget, the new Microsoft package manager. AMD "Navi" rated clocks will now always be shown in Advanced Panel, even if the reported clocks are 0. A "BIOS reading not supported" error with certain laptops that have NVIDIA discrete GPUs, has been fixed. The ASUS ROG-branded GPU-Z has some UI touch-ups. Die-size and transistor counts of AMD "Cezanne" APU and certain older AMD GPUs, have been fixed. Grab GPU-Z from the link below.

NVIDIA Announces GeForce RTX 3050 Ti Mobile and RTX 3050 Mobile

Alongside Intel's launch of the 11th Gen Core "Tiger Lake-H" desktop processor series, NVIDIA debuted its mid-range GeForce RTX 3050 Ti (mobile) and RTX 3050 (mobile) graphics processors. Both chips are designed with typical 3D power ranging between 35 W and 80 W. Both chips are based on the new 8 nm "GA107" silicon. This "Ampere" chip physically packs 2,560 CUDA cores across 20 streaming multiprocessors, with 80 tensor cores, 20 RT cores, and a 128-bit wide GDDR6 memory interface.

The GeForce RTX 3050 Ti (mobile) appears to be maxing out the GA107 silicon, featuring all 2,560 CUDA cores, 80 tensor cores, 20 RT cores, and 4 GB of GDDR6 memory across the chip's 128-bit wide memory bus. The RTX 3050 is slightly cut down, with 16 out of 20 SM enabled. This works out to 2,048 CUDA cores, 64 tensor cores, and 16 RT cores. The memory remains the same—4 GB GDDR6. Clock speeds will vary wildly depending on the notebook model, but typically, the RTX 3050 Ti can boost up to 1695 MHz, while the RTX 3050 can boost up to 1740 MHz. Both chips take advantage of PCI-Express 4.0 and Resizable BAR. The company didn't reveal memory clocks.

GIGABYTE Launches New GeForce RTX 3050 G5/G7 Gaming Laptops

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the mining trend, the sales of GIGABYTE's newly launched laptops with NVIDIA GeForce RTX Laptop GPUs saw an exponential growth in Q1 2021, and even set the new record of monthly profit in recent years. GIGABYTE is now launching G Series laptops with both the CPU and GPU upgraded to the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, GeForce RTX 3050, and Intel 11th gen H-series processors. With the focus on "multitasking" to appeal to the Gen Z gamers, the G series laptops are built for not just gaming, but provide a beautiful balance of entertainment and work capabilities.

GIGABYTE presents its new products, 15'" G5 and 17" G7 gaming laptops, with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti and RTX 3050. As the award-winning NVIDIA Ampere architecture brings in its groundbreaking rendering efficiency, the RTX 30 Series Laptop GPUs powers up with multiple features, including the support for raytracing technology and advanced AI, presenting more realistic light and shadow effects, allowing players to effortlessly immerse in AAA titles such as Cyberpunk 2077 and Dying Light 2. RTX 30 Series Laptop GPUs also feature the brand-new 3rd generation Max-Q technologies for optimal power and performance, the overall computing speed and gaming experience will be remarkably enhanced.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050/3050 Ti Laptop GPU Specifications & Performance Leaked

The NVIDIA RTX 3050 and RTX 3050 Ti laptop GPUs are the next-generation mid-range offerings from NVIDIA for the notebook sector and will soon replace the GTX 1650 and GTX 1660 Ti. The new graphics cards will feature an adjustable TDP in the range of 35 watts all the way up to 80 watts which will greatly impact performance and battery life. The RTX 3050 will feature 2,048 CUDA cores and a base clock between 713 MHz, and 1,530 MHz while the boost clock will vary from 1,057 MHz to 1,740 MHz depending on the selected TDP. The RTX 3050 Ti increases the core count to 2,560 with similar base clocks at 735 MHz to 1,463 MHz along with boost clocks in the range of 1,035 MHz to 1,695 MHz. The two cards will both feature 4 GB of GDDR6 memory with a bandwidth of 88 GB/s. We have a good idea of the expected performance of these cards, with leaked synthetic and gaming testing putting the RTX 3050 Ti near the RTX 2060 Max-Q while the base RTX 3050 trades blows with the GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q.

Lenovo Confirms Various Upcoming GeForce RTX 30-series SKUs

Lenovo may have inadvertently disclosed the existence of several upcoming GeForce RTX 30-series graphics cards. The Product Specifications Reference (PSREF) document for a certain Lenovo pre-built gaming desktop model, the Legion R5 28IMB05, lists out all its possible hardware options, covering CPU, graphics cards, and storage. The CPU options cover 10th Gen Core "Comet Lake-S" models that are already out; but things get interesting with the list of graphics options. In addition to certain RTX 20-series, and GTX 16-series SKUs, the list mentions certain RTX 30-series SKUs that haven't yet been announced by NVIDIA.

Among these unreleased GPUs are the GeForce RTX 3050, which is shown featuring 4 GB of GDDR6 memory; the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti with 6 GB of it; and the GeForce RTX 3060 (non-Ti) with 12 GB of it. The already-launched RTX 3070 also finds mention here. It's likely that these are OEM-exclusive SKUs, but if they're not, then we have our first look at how NVIDIA is handling product segmentation between the RTX 3050 Ti and the RTX 3060 (non-Ti), in a possible bid to avoid a repeat of the GTX 1060 3 GB vs. 6 GB confusion (where besides memory, the two SKUs also had different core-configurations). Based on the GA106 silicon, the GeForce RTX 3060 (non-Ti) is expected to feature a 192-bit wide GDDR6 memory interface, which it populates with 12 GB of memory.
