How well can the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W run games
28 Nov 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

A true powerhouse, the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W will run even the most demanding game system requirements released today. DirectX 12 gaming system requirements will be met by this gpu.

What FPS performance can the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W get on latest AAA 2019 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 961 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W shows us that The Outer Worlds is getting a good result of 69 FPS, and then we are seeing eFootball PES 2020 returning a strong 106 FPS while another game on our list is the FIFA 20 which is getting 192 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

With PC gamers looking for larger screen sizes like 1440p we tested the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W by playing eFootball PES 2020 which yielded a strong performance. Its FPS results for the graphics settings are as follows - L: 212FPS, M: 167FPS, H: 113FPS, U: 80FPS. Another popular game we tested with this card was FIFA 20 and that was strong. This graphics card delivered 146 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Another popular title was The Outer Worlds which gets reasonable results with a 53FPS on Ultra 1440p. In summary we feel the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W running at 1440p 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 90W graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W in your PC? This gpu has around 2+ years of running AAA recommended system requirements before any upgrades should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W? 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 90W.

GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q 90W Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
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.
