Nvidia's RTX 4090 laptop GPU has been seen in an HP Omen gaming laptop, along with a host of other Lovelace mobile graphics cards, and all of these laptops are powered by an imminent new Raptor Lake mobile processor.
This leak comes from @momomo_us on Twitter (as reported by VideoCardz (opens in a new tab)), who spotted the HP Omen machines listed on a European retailer's website, but since it's from an unknown outlet, we must be especially careful with these alleged specifications provided through product listings.
The retailer lists six variants of the incoming HP Omen 17 that are powered by the Intel Core i7-13700HX processor, a moving part expected to be revealed at CES, and all have Nvidia Lovelace GPUs.
The higher-end model is powered by the bundled RTX 4090 laptop graphics card with 16GB of VRAM (no other specs given here by the way, just memory configuration).
We also see two Omen 17 laptops with an RTX 4080 (equipped with 12GB of VRAM), one machine with an RTX 4070 (8GB), and another pair with the RTX 4060 (also 8GB).
The prices are in lei, the Romanian currency, so we can assume that this is a Romanian retailer, naturally, and the best HP Omen with RTX 4090 costs 18 lei. That works out to around $881 / £4,000 / AU$3,300, but take that with more seasoning than the rest of this leak (that's a lot).
Analysis: A flagship laptop beast?
If this leak turns out to be correct, we're apparently looking at an RTX 4060 up to an RTX 4090 for laptop GPUs, which are about to be revealed at CES (alongside Intel's new Raptor Lake mobile offerings, as mentioned). An RTX 4050 is also rumored, and that too could happen, in theory, but not in an HP Omen (the RTX 4050 was actually spotted in leaked benchmarks for a Samsung Galaxy Book Pro laptop).
What's also interesting here is that the rumor mill has been pretty uncertain as to what the top model for the Lovelace mobile will be, and seeing that it could be an RTX 4090, we're hoping for a beefy enough laptop GPU that really boosts speed. of frames to play on the go. . (Remember, the Ampere generation surpassed the RTX 3080 Ti for laptops; there was no 3090 for laptops.)
Unfortunately, we don't have any specs other than memory loads, though that didn't stop the rumors of the RTX 4090 being a laptop graphics card that could match the RTX 3090 desktop power, just as (or at least come close) . An earlier leak pointed to the 4090 mobile using the AD103 chip (AD102 is too much for the limits of a laptop chassis) with up to 175W TGP (but honestly, that rumor is another vague one that we have to remain more skeptical of). than usual around).
There's still a lot of question in the air, then, about how the GPUs in Lovelace laptops will actually play out, but we should at least know in less than a month. At CES, we expect to see powerful gaming laptops using Intel's Raptor Lake mobile processors in combination with RTX 4000 graphics cards.
