Hello,

So it's been announced RTX 3070ti is coming to laptop?

Will getting the RTX 3070ti be a better investment that the normal 3070 in terms of performance and price, planning to get the ti version on Lenovo legion 5 pro 2022

Of course benchmarks will occur once its released but just wondering now

Too many variables to say. A lot of laptop GPUs are more limited by their implementation than the hardware.

Cooling and power limits can be a bigger factor than the size of the GPU.

Yeah I know, the 3070ti is 150w, and Lenovo legion cooling is pretty good , they state the 4 generation of their cooling has come, with better fans and all that, the general improvements, I mean take what you want ....

"generation of cooling" "IE we spent more money to remain competitive". Nothing really new there.

ASUS has been doing whole board vapor chambers and liquid metal, not really an innovation but they are at least doing something besides cramming in more heatpipes WHILE making the laptop thinner.

Still, the mobile GPUs are given a power range they can operate in. Looks like the Legion will have 125W to play with, not the full 150W.

Right 125. So wats of the GPU Is what effects it then there must not be much of an improvement between the closer models such as the 3070 and the ti. Unless if going to go for 3080 then Wats are fairly higher but then might as well build desktop, tbh building one will be similar price and performance would be __times better.

Not the only factor, but it is a big one. More GPU cores running at a slower speed can be faster than less cores reaching a higher boost clock. And it somewhat comes down to luck. A very good ASIC can run lower power at greater speed, but the chips are usually binned to some extent, so the best GPUs will end up in the very high end hardware.

You are right to wait for reviews.
