NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q Score Leaked on GeekBench



NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q Score Leaked on GeekBench

In mid-November 2019, we already knew that the Nvidia GeForce SUPER would arrive this year to gaming laptops, and the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Mobile is the first one to be seen. This new graphics card for portable computers aims to bring high-end gaming to portable computers.

Today, we have seen how a new graphics card from NVIDIA made an appearance in the Geekbench benchmarking software. In this case, a unit for portable computers, which accompanied by an 8-core Intel Core i9-10980HK, appears with the name of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q.

Max-Q type GPUs are graphic cards that offer good performance and energy efficiency. They are designed so that we have everything we need to play, while they have cut frequencies to adjust the consumption. However, its autonomy in portable gaming equipment can be a problem.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q Score Leaked on GeekBench Report.

We do not have much data about this graphics card. However, according to the information in Geekbench, it has 48 computing units with a maximum frequency of 1.23GHz. This GPU would have 8 cores and 16 threads and is designed for high-end gaming laptops. It is something that accompanied by 8GB of RAM for great gaming performance.

The configuration we can see listed in Geekbench achieves an OpenCL score of 235183 points, which if we go to the OpenCL score list, we can see that it is approximately equivalent to the performance of an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti or a GeForce RTX 2070, both in their desktop versions. Therefore, we can get a rough idea of ​​the performance we will have available on a computer with these characteristics.

For now, there is no official information about it. We will have to wait for this GPU applied through new products or, conversely, for NVIDIA to officially announce this new GPU for Gaming laptops.

More Powerful than PS5

During the keynote that NVIDIA maintained at the GTX China back in 2019, the company stated that its RTX 2080 Max-Q graphics for laptops are more powerful than next-generation consoles.

The CEO of the company, Jen-sen Huang, talked about the gaming power of the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q that incorporate the new Lenovo Y740 laptops and compared them with the next-gen consoles. Although, it is true that he did not refer directly to the console market itself during the speech and did not refer either directly to Sony (with its PlayStation 5 ) or Microsoft (with its Xbox Series X ).

The RTX 2080 Max-Q is a reduced consumption version of the RTX 2080 desktop, with somewhat lower clock speeds but also has a much lower consumption. They are based on the same TU104 chipset as these desktop graphics, but with 2944 Shaders and 8 GB of GDDR6 memory and a 256-bit interface.

NVIDIA produces the TU104 chipset under the 12 nm FinFET process. It has features such as Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) and Real-Time Ray Tracing (RTRT), just like the RTX 2080 desktop.

However, as we still do not know for sure what hardware the next generation consoles will incorporate, neither from Sony nor Microsoft, it is impossible to compare in detail. Perfectly now, Sony could come to the fore to say that the hardware of its PS5 is more powerful than the RTX 2080 Max-Q of NVIDIA, and we would continue without any proof to be able to contrast the information.

The only thing confirmed at the moment is that these next-gen consoles will have a custom AMD processor manufactured at 7 nm, with Navi architecture for the GPU and, of course, a solid-state-drive for storage. Beyond that, everything is pure speculation, but it seems that the CEO of NVIDIA has achieved what he wanted.
