NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Mobile

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Mobile

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Super Mobile is the fastest mobile graphics card for laptops in early 2020. It is based on the desktop RTX 2080 Super, but most likely with reduced core speeds. According to early information it will be only slightly faster than a RTX 2080 with the same TGP setting (max. 200 Watt).

According to our information there will be various versions of the 2080 Super, six versions ranging from 150 - 200 Watt TGP and different clock speeds and three Max-Q variants from 80 - 90 Watt.

Features

NVIDIA manufacturers the TU104 chip on a 12 nm FinFET process and includes features like Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) and Real-Time Ray Tracing (RTRT), which should combine to create more realistic lighting effects than older GPUs based on the company's Pascal architecture (if the games supports it). The RTX 2080 Super is also DisplayPort 1.4 ready, while there is also support for HDMI 2.0b, HDR, Simultaneous Multi-Projection (SMP) and H.265 video en/decoding (PlayReady 3.0).

Performance

The mobile RTX 2080 Super Mobile should perform only slightly better than the old mobile RTX 2080. Therefore, it should be able to run all demanding games in 4k with maximum details. Raytracing features however may reduce framerates a lot.

The power consumption of the card can be set with 150 or 200 Watt TGP according to early information. Therefore, the normal Max-P variant is only suited for thick and heavy gaming laptops. A Max-Q variant for thin and light laptops is also planned (most likely at 80 - 90 Watt as the RTX 2080 Max-Q with similar performance).
