Nvidia unveiled the RTX 30 Series Notebook GPUs at CES just a month ago, and we already got the device. Check out the MSIG S66 Stealth 2021 Edition with Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU. This edition also features a 15.6-inch display with a resolution of 1440p and a refresh rate of 240Hz. Since this is an RTX 3080 based laptop, it may be acceptable to assume that the maximum frame rate is guaranteed, but it is not.
According to Videocardz, the GA106 GPU is Ampere’s latest gaming GPU. We’ve already seen two other GPUs running in the game segment, including GA102 and GA104, but the GA100 is only located in the HPC and AI segments.

One interesting thing to note here is that the particular Ampere GPU SKU is the GA106-400, not the GA106-300 that NVIDIA actually uses for the GeForce RTX 3060 12GB graphics card. The reason mentioned in the source is that certain chips were mounted on early ES cards before NVIDIA returned to the drawing and decided to use the GA106-300 die stripped down with the GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card. I did. The GA106-400GPUSKU has a total of 3,840 CUDA cores and the GA106-300 GPU SKU has 3,584 CUDA kernels. The package size of the GA106 chip is the same as the package size of the GA104 GPU, but the die itself is much smaller.
The GA106 GPU is estimated to be about 276mm2, which is even smaller than the 284mm2 TU116 GPU. Therefore, you can get much more horsepower in a much smaller die area than before. The TU116 GPU also has no raytracing hardware, which was only valid on the 445mm2 TU106 GPU, which is larger than the GA104 GPU.
In addition, you can see the use of Samsung K4ZAF3258M-HC16 memory modules on the board. These modules are clocked at 16 Gb / s and operate on a 192-bit bus interface. So check the cumulative bandwidth of 384 GB / s. Each module also has 2GB of video memory. For a total of 6 modules, so the RTX3060 has 12GB of GDDR6 memory.
Overall, it’s interesting to see the final performance of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 12GB graphics card. Priced at $ 329. It’s expected to be as fast as the GeForce RTX 2080, consume much less power, and have better ray-tracing capabilities.
