Laptop review site NotebookCheck concludes making assumptions about the performance of laptops with the NVIDIA Ampere RTX 30 series is a big mess. A lof of the performance depends on how the laptop OEM configures the GPU. Even with NVIDIA now mandating laptop makers to disclose power and clockspeed information on their websites, there's still confusion as OEMs can report Boost clock info as they deem fit:
When it comes to NVIDIA's Ampere laptop GPUs, variation in TGPs is just one conundrum. Apparently, NVIDIA is keeping mum on Dynamic Boost 2.0 clocks due to which OEMs, apart from determining TGP and Max-Q features, are also deciding on which boost clocks to advertise further complicating matters for both reviewers and end users alike.
