This is a no expense spared gaming build, featuring a 16″ 2560×1600 QHD+ 240Hz IPS display, 13th gen Intel Core i9-13900HX Raptor Lake CPU, GeForce RTX 4080 GPU, 32GB of DDR5-5600MHz RAM, and a 1TB SSD. The latest Intel Core i9-13900HX is the most powerful mobile CPU on the market right now, you can’t get anything better. It boasts 24 cores and 32 threads with a maximum boosted clock speed of 5.4GHz. It improves on the previous gen Intel CPU with more cores, a bigger cache, and support for faster RAM.
How powerful is the RTX 4080 GPU?
The RTX 4080 mobile GPU performs about 20%-35% faster than the RTX 3080 Ti mobile. Compared to desktop variants, the mobile RTX 4080 approaches a performance level similar to the desktop RTX 3070 Ti. It’s definitely more than enough power to run games on the native 1440p display at near maximum settings depending on the title.
These GPUs are only worth it with higher resolution displays
Although there are some 1080p laptops available, we think an RTX 40 series card is wasted on such a low resolution. That’s because the current RTX 30 series cards can handle this resolution beautifully already. The sweet spot is QHD (or QHD+) because it’s still noticeably sharper than 1080p on a 16″-18″ display and isn’t as graphically demanding as native 4K. Even still, you’re going to appreciate the extra power that the RTX 40 series GPU offers to drive the higher resolution.
Mobile RTX 40 series GPUs also support DLSS 3.0
RTX 40 series cards also support DLSS 3.0, which is essentially DLSS 2.0 plus frame generation. For games that support it (like Cyberpunk) this is a massive FPS increase over even DLSS 2.0. It’s pretty much a necessity on ray-traced modern games.
