The performance of RTX 2080 Max-Q laptops may vary substantially depending on TDP

Performance depends on the version
Performance depends on the version
If you plan on purchasing an RTX 2080 Max-Q laptop, you should pay special attention to the TDP version. The reason: According to our benchmarks, the performance gap can be quite substantial.

As it turns out, there are not only two versions of the GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q (detailed here), but there are also two versions of the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q, which vary primarily in TDP and clock rates. While the 80-watt edition is rated for 735 to 1095 MHz (for example in the Acer Predator Triton 500), the 90-watt edition clocks at 990 to 1230 MHz (for example in the Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX701GX). In the following extended series of tests, we evaluate the performance impact of these differences.

Even in my youth I was already very enthusiastic about technology, and as a result I started building PCs, optimizing them, and writing programs while I was still in school. When dealing with the inevitable hardware and software problems associated with computers, I was always relentless in my search for the necessary solutions. The compact forms of laptops and smartphones introduced further challenges in this regard. In my reviews for Notebookcheck I try to communicate as objectively as possible how well a device copes with these hurdles.
