NVIDIA RTX 2080 Super Max-Q and Core i9-10980HK appear on Geekbench, expected to launch later this quarter
Last November, we reported exclusively about NVIDIA's plans of introducing the Super lineup of GPUs to mobile. Now, noted leakster TUM_APISAK has managed to find a Geekbench listing of the RTX 2080 Super Max-Q version.
As detailed in our previous report, the RTX 2080 Super Max-Q codenamed N18-G3R will be an 80W TGP card (against the 150W TGP in the non-Max-Q version) and feature 8 GB of GDDR6 RAM. The Geekbench listing shows that the RTX 2080 Super Max-Q will have 48 CUs and a 1.23 GHz maximum clock. We see that the card posts an OpenCL score of 235,183.
Perhaps for the first time, the Core i9-10980HK also rears its head on the Geekbench site. The 8-core 16-thread Core i9-10980HK is touted to be the flagship 10th generation H-series CPU from Intel. During CES 2020, Intel briefly teased about the upcoming H-series and said that the new processors would break the 5 GHz barrier. We see the listing showing the maximum clock as 4.92 GHz and going by Intel's tease, there could be further scope for rise in clocks.
Intel's Comet Lake-H processors are slated for release sometime later this quarter, which means we could see the RTX 2080 Super Max-Q also launch during the same time to feature in upcoming gaming laptops.
