On the desktop platform, Nvidia’s new generation of GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards based on the Ada Lovelace architecture is beginning to replace the original product line in an orderly manner. According to the usual practice of Nvidia, the next GPU with the new architecture will also land on the mobile platform, paired with the new mobile processors of Intel and AMD.
Recently, Samsung’s new Galaxy Book Pro (model NP960XFH) appeared on the PugetBench
benchmark website. It is equipped with an Intel Core i7-13700H processor and Nvidia GeForce RTX 4050 laptop version, both of which are unreleased new products, and is equipped with 32GB of LPDDR5-6400 memory.
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 4050 laptop version has a total score of 1124 points in the PugetBench Premiere Pro test, and a GPU score of 57.4 points. Compared with the score of Dell’s XPS 15 9520 (Core i7-12700H processor / GeForce RTX 3050 mobile version / 32GB of DDR5-4800 memory) in the same test (total score 1009 points / GPU score 48.9 points), there is a certain amount of improvement, the GPU is about 17% faster. Although the specific specification information of the GeForce RTX 4050 mobile version cannot be obtained, it is likely to be a new GPU based on the Ada Lovelace architecture.
According to the release plan of Intel’s 13th generation Core mobile processor, Samsung’s new Galaxy Book Pro laptop is likely to be unveiled at the CES 2023 exhibition early next year, and it may also provide integrated graphics and versions equipped with Intel ARC graphics. On the previous generation of Ampere architecture GPU, Nvidia launched the entry-level mobile platform graphics card seven or eight months after the first product on the desktop platform. This time, the Ada Lovelace architecture GPU may not have to wait that long.
