In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Gainward Blower 8GB are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W.

The RTX 2080 has a 525 MHz higher core clock speed and the same number of Texture Mapping Units as the RTX 2080. This results in the RTX 2080 providing 96.6 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RTX 2080 has a 525 MHz higher core clock speed than the RTX 2080 and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the RTX 2080 providing 33.6 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

Both the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W and the GeForce RTX 2080 Gainward Blower 8GB were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W and the GeForce RTX 2080 Gainward Blower 8GB have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The RTX 2080 has 64 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RTX 2080, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 2080 is much better than the RTX 2080.

Both the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W and the GeForce RTX 2080 Gainward Blower 8GB have 2944 Shader Processing Units. While the two GPUs have the same number of SPUs, the actual performance delivered by the RTX 2080 is 5034 and by the RTX 2080 is 5034. Knowing that the shader performance of the RTX 2080 is superior, it is not necessary to examine the GPUs' respective Texture and Pixel Fill Rates.

The GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W requires 90 Watts to run and the GeForce RTX 2080 Gainward Blower 8GB requires 215 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 650 Watts for the RTX 2080, but we do not have a recommended PSU wattage for the RTX 2080. The RTX 2080 requires 125 Watts more than the RTX 2080 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RTX 2080 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RTX 2080.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview The GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W 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 TU104 N18E-G3-A1 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 990MHz and goes up to 1230MHz 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 1500MHz, or 12GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 384 Gb/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 90W, the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W is fairly power hungry for a laptop graphics processor. It runs around 15% faster than the 80W model. Performance Performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W 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 90W 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.Overview The GeForce RTX 2080 Gainward Blower 8GB is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Turing Architecture and is suitable for 1440p or 4K gaming. This is a dual-slot graphics card with a basic blower fan design. This video card has poor overclocking potential. Architecture It equips a Turing GPU Codenamed TU104. More specifically, it uses the TU104-400-A1 variant which means factor overclocks are not permitted. This 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 (RTX) technology. It also has 368 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. GPU The central unit runs at 1515MHz and goes up to 1710MHz in Turbo Mode, the same as the reference specs and 5% slower clock speeds than the Founders Edition. 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 215W, it requires at least a 650W PSU with available 8-pin + 6-pin power connector. Performance The performance of the GeForce RTX 2080 is slightly faster than the GTX 1080 Ti, making it a suitable graphics card for 4K gaming. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2080 Gainward Phoenix 8GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
