Nvidia RTX 3080 versus Nvidia RTX 3080 Laptop GPU ReviewPosted on 2021-05-03 09:50:37 by Thomas De Maesschalck
2020 and 2021 has so far been an absolute disaster when it comes to getting hold of new graphics cards, especially from Nvidia. You need a lot of luck and patience to be able to grab a card or a lot of money to buy it via Ebay. One way to get hold of a RTX Series 30-card is to buy it in a laptop. Earlier this year Nvidia released the mobile version of the RTX 30 Series and these of course are a bit easier to get hold of as you buy them together with a laptop. As expected, a RTX 3080 in a laptop is not as fast as a regular RTX 3080, mainly because the have completely different limits in power, but how big difference is there? To look into that I decided to pit my desktop with a Ryzen 5950x and a Gigabyte RTX3080 against an Asus Zephyrus G15 laptop with a Ryzen 9 5900HS and a RTX 3080 Laptop GPU. Read on to see what the difference is.
