In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Gainward Blower 8GB are significantly better than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q.

The RTX 2080 has a 540 MHz higher core clock speed and 64 more Texture Mapping Units than the RTX 2060. This results in the RTX 2080 providing 161.8 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 540 MHz higher core clock speed and 16 more Render Output Units than the RTX 2060. This results in the RTX 2080 providing 50.2 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RTX 2060 was released over a year more recently than the RTX 2080, and so the RTX 2060 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the RTX 2080.

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 RTX 2080 has 2048 MB more video memory than the RTX 2060, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RTX 2080 also has superior memory performance overall.

The RTX 2080 has 184 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RTX 2060, which means that the memory performance of the RTX 2080 is massively better than the RTX 2060.

The GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q has 1920 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce RTX 2080 Gainward Blower 8GB has 2944. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 2060 is 2275 and the actual shader performance of the RTX 2080 is 5034. The RTX 2080 having 2759 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RTX 2080 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the RTX 2060.

The GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q requires 65 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 2060. The RTX 2080 requires 150 Watts more than the RTX 2060 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 2060.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q is the low-power variant of the RTX 2060 Mobile and is a mid-range GeForce 20 Series graphics card for laptops based on the Turing GPU architecture. It is considered a great price to performance graphics card. Architecture The Turing architecture represents a process shrink down to 12nm compared to 14nm Pascal. The Turing architecture provides the world's first consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. The GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q supports real-time ray-tracing and excels at 1080p screen resolution. GPU It equips a Turing GPU codenamed TU106 which has 1920 Shader Processing Units, 120 TMUs and 48 ROPs. The central unit runs at 975 MHz and goes up to 1185 MHz in Boost mode. Memory The GPU accesses a 6GB frame buffer of first-gen GDDR6 memory through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory clock operates at 1375MHz, or 11GHz effective. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 65W the RTX 2060 Max-Q is averagely resource-intensive and will fairly significantly reduce laptop battery life at full load. System Suggestions GeForce RTX 2060 6GB Max-Q is best suited for resolutions up to and including 2560x1440. We recommend a mid-range Processor and at least 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.
