Lambda Labs, a deep learning and infrastructure operator, and PC and peripheral manufacturer Razer, which is particularly popular among gamers, have jointly developed an Ubuntu-based “deep learning laptop” with a custom Nvidia GeForce RTX presented. 3080 Max-Q.

Core i7-11800H and GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q

The Lambda Tensorbook is based on the Intel Core i7-11800H processor, which is still based on Tiger Lake and not yet on the first generation hybrid Alder Lake, with up to 4.60 GHz (8C/16T), a TDP of 45W and the aforementioned Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q with 16GB of GDDR6 memory. This is a GeForce RTX 3080 laptop GPU with 6144 CUDA cores, which should handle a cTDP of 80W according to the “Max-Q” suffix.

64 GB DDR4 and 165 Hz board

According to the manufacturer, the Lambda Tensorbook with the following specifications should run up to ten times faster than a Google Colab cloud solution and up to four times faster than the Apple M1 Max when it comes to deep learning.
