ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo Gaming Laptop Confirms NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Mobile Graphics Has Full GA104 GPU With 6144 CUDA cores

Gamers and multimedia professionals looking for a powerful gaming laptop with a high amount of graphics processing now have the choice of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Mobile dGPU. Apparently, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo (GX551QS) laptop packs AMD Ryzen 9 5900H CPU and the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Mobile GPU.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 Series of Graphics Cards have offered a massive improvement over the previous generation of GeForce RTX 2000 Series. The GeForce RTX 3080 set a new benchmark for NVIDIA’s mainstream gaming GPUs. And the RTX 3090 is an insanely powerful GPU for gaming and professionals. Desktop graphics cards from NVIDIA’s new Ampere-based family are difficult to come by. But laptop gamers might have a better chance of picking up a portable gaming computer with NVIDIA’s premium mainstream graphics chip.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Mobile dGPU confirmed with 6144 CUDA cores and 16GB of memory:

A new leak in the form of a Geekbench listing has indicated the existence of a premium gaming laptop from ASUS. The ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo (GX551QS) laptop has the flagship GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card. Moreover, despite being a mobile gaming dedicated graphics chip, this variant of GeForce RTX 3080 is based on the full GA104 GPU. The benchmark indicates this NVIDIA Ampere based graphics card will feature 6144 CUDA cores and up to 16GB of GDDR6 memory.

The graphics chip has a GPU clock at 1.54 GHz. This indicates ASUS has opted for the Max-Q variant for the ROG no-compromise gaming laptop. According to the Geekbench listing, the RTX 3080 Mobile scored 139181 points. This is more than the desktop variant of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070. The desktop-grade NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 does offer 129 percent more performance than its mobile equivalent, despite being based on the slightly lower GA102 GPU processor.

Besides the top-end, mainstream NVIDIA graphics chip, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo laptop also features AMD’s Ryzen 9 5900H CPU. This is an 8 Core and 16 Thread CPU with a reported Base Clock of 3.3 GHz and 4.54 GHz Boost Clock.

The ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo (GX551QS) laptop comes preinstalled with a total of 48GB of DDR4-3200 memory. Although yet to be confirmed, experts claim the odd number of RAM means ASUS has soldered 16GB RAM directly onto the motherboard and installed two additional RAM modules of 16 GB each.
