It has now been almost 14 months since Nvidia introduced the first-ampere graphics cards. In the coming months, a small upgrade, for example in the form of super graphics cards, could appear. But new editions are not only possible in the desktop market: Nvidia could also add more graphics cards from the RTX 3000 generation to the notebook.
GA103 as RTX 3080 Ti Mobile
This is particularly supported by the appearance of a new GPU: Matthew Smith, who is responsible for the Techpowerup database, recently entered a GA103 in it. The GPU data comes from the database in which the PCI device IDs are stored.

Specifically, there is speculation on Twitter about a release as Geforce RTX 3080 Ti Mobile, whereas the leaker kopite7kimi also considers a release as Geforce RTX 3090M to be possible. So far, Nvidia’s fastest notebook graphics card is the Geforce RTX 3080M, which, like the RTX 3070 Ti, relies on a full GA104 expansion with 6,144 shaders.
Even if the release of a GA103 in a notebook is quite possible, it would be unusual for Nvidia to have a new GPU manufactured solely for the mobile high-end segment. However, it is conceivable that a potential GA103 could also play a role in a potential ampere refresh. With the said 7,680 instead of 6,144 shaders, the chip could be placed between the RTX 3070 Ti and the RTX 3080.
