The GPU side will include the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti based on the new Ampere GA103 GPU SKU and will offer a TDP between 150W and 200W. The card is said to come in both standard and Max-Q flavors, rocking 58 compute units for a total of 7424 CUDA cores and a clock speed of 1395 MHz. The GPU also features 16 GB of GDDR6 memory, likely operating at 12 Gbps speeds across a 256-bit bus. Other specifications of the laptop include 32 GB of memory. The desktop RTX 3080 will still carry more 17% higher cores & it looks like the GPU itself has some key optimizations for faster clock and efficiency management. The GPU has already been confirmed through a leak earlier this month.

Other specifications include up to 48 GB of DDR5-4800 (16 GB DDR5-4800 for this variant) memory support and up to 8 TB of PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSD storage (1 TB capacity pre-equipped for this model). Yes, this will be the first AMD CPU-powered laptop with DDR5 and PCIe Gen 4 support and will tackle Intel's Alder Lake-P CPU family. The laptop will offer a 16" screen with FHD resolution and a refresh rate of 300 Hz. Given the high-end specifications, this laptop will easily retail over the $2500 US mark. Expect an official announcement at CES 2022.
