The test results of mid-range laptops of the new generation with RTX 4070, 4060 and 4050 graphics processors indicate a slight improvement in their performance against higher efficiency.
With its Ada series graphics chips on the desktop, Nvidia offers users a significant improvement over its previous generation offerings. However, it seems that the mid-range laptops of the new generation rely on low-end dies, limited number of cores and weaker memory configuration, and face a bottleneck in the way of performance improvement.
In general, it can be said that each of the mid-range GPUs of this generation in portable devices has degraded to a lower level than its corresponding model from the previous generation. So that the RTX 4070 was demoted from the GA104 chip in the 3070Ti to the lower AD106 model, and the RTX 4060 from the GA106 At RTX 3060 has reached AD107 in the new generation. RTX 4050, despite being from a similar model Die uses, with a weaker version of Dai AD107 was launched.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 and RTX 4060 laptop GPU with 8 GB graphics memory for mid-range customers
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4070 and RTX 4060 laptop GPUs with 8GB of GDDR6 memory were introduced. Both GPUs get a standard 35W profile with the TGP maxing out at 115W. 25 watts of its power consumption is in the Dynamic Boost Range. RTX 4070 laptop GPU of 4608 CUDA cores And it has 8 GB of graphics memory and its clock speed reaches 2175 MHz. However, the RTX 4060 with 3072 cores and 2370 MHz boost frequency was introduced to users.
Laptop GPU RTX 4050 6 GB; Low-end Ada offering for laptops
Finally, Nvidia’s low-end offer for new generation laptops is GeForce RTX 4050 6 GB We have a power consumption profile It receives 35W-115W with a maximum operating frequency of 2370MHz at a power of 115W. GPU clock speed which has a 96-bit bus interface, can also be reduced to 1605 MHz.
Based on available information, NVIDIA RTX 40 laptop graphics chips use a very conservative and cost-effective package design. In fact, all three chips use a standard 29×29 package codenamed PCB2, which has a 5+1 phase design with a maximum power of 140W.

The first benchmark test of these chips was conducted by Golden Pig Upgrade, which captured the performance of all four GPUs. The NVIDIA RTX 40 series chips were tested in this test on a Lenovo Reference platform alongside the 13th generation Raptor Lake-HX chips. These chips were compared with an RTX 3070 Ti GPU in a Lenovo Y9000P laptop and the results are shown in the images below.
Starting with GPU performance graphs in simulation tests, RTX 4050 shows about 37.3% improvement compared to RTX 3050 Ti. RTX 4060 also appeared 19.3% stronger than RTX 3060 and RTX 4070 About 4% slower than RTX 3070 Ti in 3DMark tests can be seen

Performance of mid-range GeForce RTX 40 chips in 1440p gaming tests
In real-world gaming performance, the RTX 4070 appears slower than the RTX 3070 Ti at both 1080p and 1440p resolutions, and this includes various AAA games and eSports. Slower RTX 4060 and RTX 4050 It was also expected due to their lower price and less specifications. Only by entering DLSS 3 is the RTX 40 series The ability of body width vs It has RTX 30. Otherwise, we face a nominal performance improvement of 5-25% in gaming tests.
