Nvidia now 'requests' (and 'not promotes') notebook manufacturers for greater transparency regarding RTX 3000 GPUs

Nvidia now ‘requests’ (and ‘not promotes’) notebook manufacturers for greater transparency regarding RTX 3000 GPUs

Anyone who reads us daily knows about it Notebook Given GPU GeForce RTX3000 You are a “Case“Linked Different GPU configurations Available and not specified by a unique name.

For example, The name GeForce RTX3080 does not identify a GPU with the same specifications that have never been found in any other notebook., But it is possible to create different configurations based on frequencies and DGP, which will obviously affect the final performance. Early reviewers found the RTX 3070 to be more efficient on the laptop than the one with the RTX 3080.

The existence of a particular version of the GPU, more or less functional, depends on the design of the notebook and the OEM (Asus, MSI, etc.) choices, but without clear information the consumer will not really know what he is buying.

In the past The word max-cue This allows us to quickly identify a GPU configuration that is optimal for thin notebooks, but NDDIA explained to us that the Max-Q brand has changed its meaning with the RTX 3000 solutions and does not design a combination of specific frequencies and DGP, but it has a wider range of overall performance Son of Continuous Filling Technologies Half (Dynamic Boost 2, WhisperMot 2 and Advanced Optimus):It is no longer used commercially.

In short, for those who want to buy a notebook, the situation is not clear in the actual configuration they want to buy. Nvidia has been saying “trying to push” us lately – The “To promote“If you want – OEMs to release all the details of the GPUs inserted in each notebook, but now the US company has changed its recordIndicates the edge That “Required“- So it’s not just about encouraging manufacturers to be transparent towards users.

“Companies,” writes The Margin, “They should publish specific information about clock speed and DGP on online product pages“Manufacturers, however, should not mention these chips as Max-Q types,” an Nvidia spokesman reiterated, adding that “Max-Q is no longer part of the GPU name.”

In the end, It seems that Nvidia wants to use the so-called “iron fist”, Keep in mind that the problem arises at his discretion and that it was time to find the square with the manufacturers before announcing the GPUs and notebooks that would integrate them. For only a matter of maximum transparency, we expect this dump to somehow affect the real world and e-commerce.

We saw how MSI e Asus Although we do not see the same diligence in updating websites, we have published details about the different graphic configurations of the respective notebooks. The same goes for other producers, who are still guilty because they are so far completely silent. The only thing left at this point is to believe that time is of the essence.
