    Yes it was. See, I can Astyanax you right back.

    Being serious, what would he have to gain by lying about that?

    nvidia has never intended to call their AD103 part a 4070

    Their last 103 chip was the 3060 Ti... and you're not really giving a reason why you believe that. Again, what would he have to gain from lying?

    only to get rid of stock piled gpu's, and its still cut down to the same specs as the 104 variant.

    GA103 was the chip that desktop 3080 was being aimed for, but nvidia opted for more shaders and more a denser memory interface putting it on 102 instead.

    it ended up being used as the notebook 3080 part.

    How about the power consumption?

    But is that honestly a driving factor when deciding? Is it not better to have a more powerful card you can dial down. As an example there are several games I play where I can run my 6900xt at way lower clocks and therefore lower power consumption but if I need to, I can push them back up for more demanding games.

    It`s an important factor because cards use huge amounts of energy, and that has some disadvantages, of course.

    Agreed but you dont have to run them at full power with every game all the time. As an example im playing COD WW2 right now and at 144hz its only pulling 180w becuase ive got the core and VRam dialled down, if its Metro EE i run it at full speed which is over 300w.

    Heat and power consumption are directly correlated. If you need a 3-slot heatsink, that suggests it's going to consume at least 400W of power. If you've got a GPU drawing that much power, chances are, power consumption isn't that big of a deal to you.
