NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q vs NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q

► remove from comparison NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q (for laptops, GN20-E7 Max-Q) is the former name for a RTX 3080 Laptop GPU with Max-Q technologies. In previous generations, the Max-Q name was used for low power versions. With the RTX 3000 series, every TGP-version can now use Max-Q technologies and all GPUs are called RTX 3080 Laptop GPU (80 - 150W+).

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q

► remove from comparison NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q (for laptops, GN20-E3, Max-Q) is the former name for a RTX 3060 Laptop GPU with Max-Q technologies. In previous generations, the Max-Q name was used for low power versions. With the RTX 3000 series, every TGP-version can now use Max-Q technologies and all GPUs are called RTX 3060 Laptop GPU (60 - 115W).
