NVIDIA preparing multiple GeForce RTX 40 desktop and mobile GPUs
NVIDIA Ada GPUs will come in many forms and variants, the alleged list suggests.
PCI ID device list can be very informative before hardware releases. This is due to the fact that NVIDIA and AMD do not operate with real SKU names this soon. The ID, on the other hand, may be exclusive to certain SKUs which helps in tracking specific devices.
This is where the new updated posted by LaptopVideo2Go might be useful, as shared by @harukaze5719. Without going into details, the list is based on the appearances of these devices in software. Those IDs are later added to the public PCI ID list, which is then picked up by websites like LV2G and us. Rest assured, not all of those IDs will make their way to the final SKUs, it is more a roadmap of what is being tested.
Desktop RTX 4090
According to this leak, the GeForce RTX 4090 GPU would carry an ID of 2684. This is the first partially confirmed ID, probably because of status of RTX 40 GPU development—this model is set to launch first. This GPU is based on a cut-down AD102 GPU with alleged 16384 CUDA Cores and 24GB of GDDR6X memory. This card will be the flagship of the next RTX 40 series till ‘Ti’ part launches.
Mobile RTX 40 Series
More interestingly, there is also a list of RTX 40 mobile SKUs, supposedly called GN21-X series (the 21 was easy to predict as GN20 is Ampere). However, the GN part suggest these are all mobile SKUs, which is interesting considering how far away are we from the supposed launch of a new mobile graphics architecture.
But here’s the intriguing part, those IDs were published by user “Faintsnow” (example here) who already shared GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 TI IDs weeks before launch. This user clearly has information on mobile RTX GPUs in advance, so there is a strong possibility that those code names do in fact reflect the new RTX mobile 40 lineup.
NVIDIA_DEV.2684 = “NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090”
NVIDIA_DEV.2717 = “NVIDIA GN21-X11”
NVIDIA_DEV.2757 = “NVIDIA GN21-X11”
NVIDIA_DEV.2785 = “NVIDIA AD104”
NVIDIA_DEV.27A0 = “NVIDIA GN21-X9”
NVIDIA_DEV.27E0 = “NVIDIA GN21-X9”
NVIDIA_DEV.2820 = “NVIDIA GN21-X6”
NVIDIA_DEV.2860 = “NVIDIA GN21-X6”
NVIDIA_DEV.28A0 = “NVIDIA GN21-X4”
NVIDIA_DEV.28A1 = “NVIDIA GN21-X2”
NVIDIA_DEV.28E0 = “NVIDIA GN21-X4”
NVIDIA_DEV.28E1 = “NVIDIA GN21-X2”
It’s worth adding that hardware leaker @kopite7kimi added some information on proposed GN21-X series lineup. He only pointed out that GN21-X11 is indeed based on AD103 GPU, but it may not be called RTX 4080 MObile.
GN21-X11 is based on AD103. So I don't think it will be called RTX 4080 Mobile.
And X9, AD104, X6 AD106, X4, X2 AD107.
I told you their power comsumption beforce, but no names.
Thank you for your information. ???

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 desktop is set to launch in 3 months time, whereas mobile series are not expected till Q4’22 or early Q1’23. The launch of these cards will heavily depend on Intel/AMD CPU release cycle, which not yet fully confirmed.
