According to Tom’s Hardware, the mobile version of the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti GPU is codenamed GN20-E6 and is credited from an unnamed device. Nvidia has yet to reveal the RTX 3070 Ti, so it’s possible that the GN20-E6 is just a prototype before Nvidia finalizes the design to bring it to new gaming laptops.
GeForce RTX 3070 Ti mobile version coming soon
The source said that Nvidia’s new GPU uses the same GA104 die as the RTX 3080 and RTX 3070. That means the 3070 Ti will fall between these two GPUs to meet different consumer needs. It is not yet clear how many cores and maximum power the RTX 3070 Ti needs.
It is known that the mobile GPU version of the RTX 3080 is equipped with 6144 CUDA cores, while the RTX 3070 has 5120 CUDA cores. So it is likely that the 3070 Ti mobile GPU will be equipped with a core count in the middle, maybe around 5600. Meanwhile, the power requirement of the RTX 3080 is above 150W, while the RTX 3070 is 120W, because so maybe the 3070 Ti will be slightly above the power limit of the RTX 3070 and just below the RTX 3080, which is in the 130W to 145W range.
It is not clear how the new GPU will benefit the RTX 3070 and RTX 3080. One area where this GPU could attract attention is the price strategy. The RTX 3070 Ti will be slightly cheaper than the RTX 3080 due to having multiple cores disabled on the same GA104 die. This means Nvidia can take advantage of the damaged wafers used for the production of the RTX 3080 to create the RTX 3070 Ti.
