The RTX 2070 with Max-Q design is NVIDIA's upcoming mid-range laptop card. It has been spotted in leaked Final Fantasy XV benchmarks. The results (assuming they are genuine) put the new mobile GPU at the top of a list that also includes the GTX 1080 (desktop and Max-Q versions) and the Radeon RX Vega.

NVIDIA is likely to unveil the laptop-compatible versions of the Turing-based RTX 20x0 series at CES, in less than a month from now. Early examples of mobile gaming PCs with these GPUs may include the ASUS Zephyrus M GM501GS, as well as less well-forecasted but doubtless powerful Lenovo and HP models. Preliminary leaks have linked these cards with impressive benchmark scores. Now, the source of these tips is back, claiming to have access to a Final Fantasy XV (FFXV) benchmark score for the RTX 2070 with Max-Q design.

This tipster (TUM APISAK) has posted rankings for this score on Twitter that puts the mobile RTX card at the top of the pile - one that contains the GTX 1080. In fact, it ranks both the desktop and laptop variants of this 2016 premium graphics solution below the new RTX mid-ranger. The RTX 2070 Max-Q is depicted as having scored 3080 in the FFXV benchmark, whereas the other two NVIDIA cards scored 2892 (desktop) and 2782 (Max-Q) respectively.

The 2070 Mobility GPU also allegedly beat several variants of the Radeon RX Vega, if not by as wide a margin. The Vega Frontier edition scored 2919, whereas the plain Vega made it to 2895. Should this leak prove accurate, we may be able to experience some impressive gaming on mobile gaming rigs built around the RTX 2070 Max-Q. Furthermore, it seems that the actual RTX Mobility flagships will be a sight to behold.
