A Geekbench result showing the NVIDIA RTX 2080 Super Max-Q's OpenCL score has surfaced confirming our earlier exclusive report about NVIDIA's plans of bringing the new RTX 20-series Super GPUS in Max-Q versions for laptops. We also see the upcoming 10th generation Intel Core i9-10980HK in this listing showing a maximum boost frequency of 4.92 GHz.

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.

I am a cell and molecular biologist and computers have been an integral part of my life ever since I laid my hands on my first PC which was based on an Intel Celeron 266 MHz processor, 16 MB RAM and a modest 2 GB hard disk. Since then, I’ve seen my passion for technology evolve with the times. From traditional floppy based storage and running DOS commands for every other task, to the connected cloud and shared social experiences we take for granted today, I consider myself fortunate to have witnessed a sea change in the technology landscape. I honestly feel that the best is yet to come, when things like AI and cloud computing mature further. When I am not out finding the next big cure for cancer, I read and write about a lot of technology related stuff or go about ripping and re-assembling PCs and laptops.
