Ada Lovelace Microarchitecture.

The RTX 40 series has adopted the TSMC manufacturing process, which results in better temperature control and power consumption levels comparable to those on desktops. The efficiency improvement of the Ada generation is particularly evident on the notebook platform, where power and heat dissipation is more limited. NVIDIA has stated that the RTX 4070 only requires one-third of the power of the previous generation RTX 3070 to achieve the same performance.

SMC assists the laptop to have better performance per watt.

The RTX 40 laptop GPU also comes equipped with “DLSS 3” AI technology for supplementary frame acceleration. The process works by rendering lower-resolution images and Motion Vectors from the game engine, then using the DLSS deep learning network to upscale the images. These images are then processed by the Optical Flow Accelerator to calculate the movement and direction of each pixel, and the AI supplementary frames are generated through the Optical Multi Frame Generation.

DLSS 3 has the potential to improve game performance by 2-4x through the use of AI supplementary frames while maintaining similar image quality to native rendering. However, this technology also introduces additional latency to the game. To mitigate this, NVIDIA has integrated Reflex technology into DLSS 3, which cancels the Render Queue and allows the CPU to immediately hand over rendering tasks to the GPU, resulting in lower system latency.

DLSS 3 brings together a range of technologies such as AI Super Resolution, Frame Generation, and ReFlex, utilizing the 4th generation Tensor Core, Optical Flow Accelerator, and NVIDIA’s supercomputer for AI training. The result is the ultimate 4K60 gaming performance for notebook gamers.
