How well can the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q run games
4 Jul 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

Game performance for the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q where we look at the bigger games played in 2020. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 946 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

A GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q card at 1080p is predicted to see a good frame rate when running Death Stranding on Ultra - 68 FPS. Lets look at the performance its getting on Valorant which is 729 FPS. To add a bit more variety lets see how the popular Grand Theft Auto VI is predicted to perform on this hardware, which gets a playable 39 FPS.

People are turning their increasingly more powerful graphics cards to the popular 1440p screen size so we tested the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q to see how it performs on 1440p. First off we have researched Death Stranding and predict it will be reasonable. The frame rates predicted for the game presets were - Low: 136 FPS, Medium: 107 FPS, High: 72 FPS and Ultra: 51 FPS. We added Valorant to our tests and saw it was strong with a 556 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And then researched Grand Theft Auto VI leading us to predict 29 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Gaming at 1440p with the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q is one of the more powerful graphics cards for this monitor resolution. Games will be running with stable frame rates at Ultra on a 1440p setup. 4K gaming for a number of modern games should also be considered with this graphics hardware.

How many years will the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q in your PC? No graphics card upgrade required for 2 to 3 years of meeting top end game system requirements

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q? There are no graphics cards on the current market that would provide a big enough increase in performance to warrant upgrading the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q.

GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
The GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q is a High-End laptop Graphics Card based on the Turing Architecture. As a Max-Q graphics card it is ideally suited for thin gaming laptops. However, this does impact performance.


Architecture
It equips a Turing GPU Codenamed GT104 which is a First Gen Turing GPU and has 20 SM activated, offering 2944 Shader Processing Units, 184 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. It also has 368 Tensor Cores for AI purposes.


GPU Name: TU104-400A-A1


GPU
The central unit runs at 735MHz and goes up to 1095MHz in Turbo Mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses an 8GB frame buffer of Second Gen GDDR6 through a 256-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448 Gb/s.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 80W, the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q is fairly power hungry for a laptop graphics processor.


Performance


Performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q falls a long way short of the desktop GeForce RTX 2080. However, the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q is still a decently fast mobile graphics card which offers performance on par with a desktop GeForce GTX 1070.


System Suggestions
GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560 x 1440. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
