NVIDIA RTX 4070/4060 tested
Chinese news outlet ITHome has received the first performance figures for the upcoming GeForce RTX 40 mobile GPUs.
The site had already shared 3DMark score of the RTX 4060 before, which in many ways is more useful than Geekbench, but today the first synthetic scores were shared of the RTX 4070 GPU as well. NVIDIA announced both GPUs earlier this week, but the reviews are probably not to be published until we get closer to launch next month.
It looks like the scores were once again supplied by a company called Thunderobot, who clearly have no issue leaking stuff at this point. They tested two identical systems equipped with Intel’s new Core i9-13900HX 24-core CPU. Since this is an enthusiast laptop design, one could assume that higher TGP variants were used, but have they really?
As a reminder, the RTX 4070 Laptop GPU features AD104 GPU with 4608 CUDA cores, combined with 8GB of GDDR6 memory. The RTX 4060, on the other hand, features AD106 GPU with 3072 cores, but the memory configuration, as well as max TGP, are the same, which in this case goes up to 115W.
The performance is actually not very good, which would suggest this is not the top TGP variant (the so-called Max-P model) of either of the cards. The Geekbench data for RTX 30 “Ampere” shows an average from all TGP variants, so it is likely even higher if only the top TGP models were used. In any case, either something is wrong with the driver or Geekbench OpenCL is not showing the strength of the Ada architecture in mobile form factor.

Officially, GeForce RTX 4070/4060/4050 GPUs are to launch on February 22nd, while high-end RTX 4090/4080 models are to launch 2 weeks sooner. Hopefully, Thunderobot will leak gaming and 3DMark scores of the same GPUs soon.
