Nvidia’s RTX 4090 laptop computer GPU has been noticed in an HP Omen gaming pocket book, together with a raft of different Lovelace cell graphics playing cards, plus these portables are all powered by an imminent new Raptor Lake cell CPU.
This leak comes from @momomo_us on Twitter (as VideoCardz (opens in new tab) flagged), who noticed the HP Omen machines listed on a European retailer’s web site, however provided that that is an unknown retail outlet, we should be notably cautious round these rumored specs offered by way of product listings.
The retailer lists six variations of the incoming HP Omen 17 that are all powered by Intel’s Core i7-13700HX CPU – a cell half anticipated to be revealed at CES – and so they all have Nvidia Lovelace GPUs.
The highest-end mannequin runs with the RTX 4090 laptop computer graphics card which is listed with 16GB of VRAM (no different specs are offered right here, by the best way, simply the reminiscence configuration).
We additionally see two Omen 17 laptops with an RTX 4080 (outfitted with 12GB VRAM), one machine with an RTX 4070 (8GB), and one other pair with the RTX 4060 (additionally 8GB).
The costs are in Lei, Romanian forex – so we are able to assume this can be a Romanian retailer, naturally – and the highest HP Omen with RTX 4090 goes for 18,881 Lei. That converts to roughly $4,000 / £3,300 / AU$6,000, however take that with much more seasoning than the remainder of this leak (which is to say a entire lot).
Evaluation: A beast of a laptop computer flagship?
If this leak proves to be right, then we’re apparently an RTX 4060 all through to an RTX 4090 for laptop computer GPUs, that are about to be revealed at CES (together with Intel’s new Raptor Lake cell choices, as talked about). There may be additionally an RTX 4050 rumored, and this may very well be coming too, in idea, simply not in an HP Omen (the RTX 4050 was truly noticed in leaked benchmarks for a Samsung Galaxy Guide Professional laptop computer).
What’s additionally attention-grabbing right here is that the rumor mill has been quite uncertain of what the top-end mannequin will likely be for Lovelace cell, and to see that it may very well be an RTX 4090 primes us to count on a suitably beefy laptop computer GPU which actually pushes body charges for gaming on the transfer. (Keep in mind, the Ampere era topped out on the RTX 3080 Ti for notebooks; there was no 3090 for laptops).
Sadly, we don’t get any specs aside from the reminiscence loadouts, though that hasn’t stopped whispers about the potential for the RTX 4090 being a laptop computer graphics card that may match the ability of the desktop RTX 3090, even (or not less than come near it). A earlier leak pointed to the 4090 cell utilizing the AD103 chip (AD102 is simply an excessive amount of for the confines of a pocket book chassis) with a TGP of as much as 175W (however in equity, that rumor is one other sketchy one which we have to stay extra skeptical than normal round).
There’s nonetheless loads of doubt within the air, then, as to how Lovelace laptop computer GPUs will actually form up, however not less than we must always discover out in lower than a month now. At CES, we’re totally anticipating to see some power-packed gaming laptops that use Intel’s Raptor Lake cell processors together with RTX 4000 graphics playing cards.
