NVIDIA announced two new mobile GPUs at CES 2022: the RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti Mobile. Both of these are meant for high-end laptops with desktop-level performance. The RTX 3080 Ti was, in fact, claimed as the fastest mobile GPU ever created by NVIDIA and there seems to be no reason to deny that. But, today’s leak actually comes from its younger sibling, the RTX 3070 Ti, which also boasts impressive pefromance. And this benchmark leak certainly shows that.
Someone got their hands on an unreleased high-end MSI gaming laptop and managed to run Geekbench 5 on it. The laptop in question is the MSI Vector GP66 featuring Intel Alder Lake Core i7-12700H processor and an RTX 3070 Ti mobile GPU. The performance we’re about to see also shows that the drivers used in this benchmark are launch-ready and probably won’t be tuned/optimized any futher.
Laptop and GPU details
MSI Vector GP66 is a thin and light gaming laptop aimed at gamers looking for high-end performance. It comes equipped with DDR4-3200 memory, this model in particular has 16GB of it. The laptop also weighs only around 2.4KG and can be configured with different Max-P GPU offerings from NVIDIA, with the 150W RTX 3070 Ti being the top-end SKU available.
As for the GPU, the RTX 3070 Ti mobile features a cut-down version of the GA-104 die with 46 SM units for a total of 5888 CUDA Cores. Clock speeds here are moderate given the mobile nature of the GPU, with a 1035Mhz base clock and 1485Mhz boost clock. Lastly, NVIDIA has equipped the RTX 3070 Ti with 8GB of GDDR6 memory across a 256-bit wide bus. The memory clocks in at 14Gbps, resulting in an up to 448GB/s bandiwth.
Coming to the benchmark, the RTX 3070 Ti achieved 124,220 points in the Geekbench OpenCL benchmark. While OpenCL isn’t exactly a good measure for gaming performance, it was the only API tested so we have to live with what we got. When compared to other NVIDIA GPUs’ OpenCL results, they show that the RTX 3070 Ti mobile is about 15% slower than its desktop counterpart.
Morever, the score is almost identical to that of the RTX 3080 Mobile and the RTX Titan desktop GPU. NVIDIA claimed that the RTX 3070 Ti Mobile is 70% faster than the RTX 2070 Super Mobile and that certainly looks to be the case with an almost exactly 70% gain in performance in the OpenCL benchmark. The RTX 2070 Super Mobile has an average score of 73,321 points in the same benchmark, 69.41% less than the RTX 3070 Ti Mobile.
Like I said, this OpenCL benchmark isn’t fully indicative of the actual gaming performance of the GPU, especially with features like ray tracing and DLSS not taken into account. So, let’s wait for actual gaming-related benchmarks before we pass our judgements. Though, with what we’re seeing right now, the RTX 3070 Ti Mobile is shaping up to be one promising release.
RTX 3070 Ti laptops will launch of February 1st and start at $1499. According to Videocardz, the 17-inch version of a simiarly-speced MSI Vector laptop included in this leak will cost $2600.
