First mobile GeForce RTX 4000 spotted in Samsung laptop

Associated with an equally expected processor, the Core i7-13700H.

NVIDIA began rolling out its Ada Lovelace architecture last month, first with the GeForce RTX 4090then with the GeForce RTX 4080 yesterday. For the moment, the company has not officially communicated the sequence of events. However, several leaks mention the launch of a GeForce RTX 4070 Ti, formerly GeForce RTX 4080 12 GB, in early January. Regarding the mobile segment, NVIDIA’s projects have not been publicly defined either. If there is therefore, again, nothing official about the arrival of the GeForce RTX 4000 series on laptops, we do know that AMD and Intel are preparing to refresh their CPU range; often, the launch of processors and graphics cards go hand in hand, in order to allow equipment manufacturers to offer new configurations. In this context, a first mobile GeForce RTX 4000 has been spotted: the GeForce RTX 4050.

It takes place in a Samsung NP960XFH PC, probably the Galaxy Book Pro update. The NVIDIA graphics card works with an also unofficial processor, the Core i7-13700H, a Raptor Lake chip (13th generation). The CPU has 14 cores / 20 threads. Specifications for the GeForce RTX 4050 aren’t specified, but the system scores 57.4 points in PugetBench’s Premiere Pro test. This is a score 17 to 32% higher than that achieved by the GeForce RTX 3050 mobile.

NVIDIA Releases Game Ready Driver for GeForce RTX 4080 Release

Launching at CES, as for the mobile RTX 3000 series?

This is of course only a hypothesis, but it is likely that NVIDIA will launch its mobile GeForce RTX 4000 line at CES 2023 in early January. The company had formalized the first mobile GeForce RTX 3000 during the 2021 edition. At the time, it was a trio made up of the GeForce RTX 3080, RTX 3070 and RTX 3060.
