Nvidia RTX 2070 Max-Q Appears on the Final Fantasy XV Benchmark database

Should we expect RTX-powered notebooks at CES?

Nvidia RTX 2070 Max-Q Appears on the Final Fantasy XV Benchmark database

Rumours regarding a mobile Max-Q RTX 2070 are solidifying, with the graphics card appearing on the Final Fantasy XV benchmarking database, evidencing the graphics card's existence. 

While the Final Fantasy XV standalone benchmark  only offers limited usefulness as a benchmark, delivering performance that is unlike the final PC game and forces Nvidia GameWorks features to be enabled at high settings, often wasting resources on content that is not present on-screen, the benchmark has proven to be a reliable source of early GPU information. Previously, this benchmark confirmed that existence of  AMD's RX 590 before the graphics card's official launch. 

Now the RTX 2070 Max-Q has appeared on the database (as spotted by TUM_APISAK), but the results are a little perplexing. Yes, the mobile-oriented Max-Q design is expected to run slower than its desktop counterpart, but in this case it is full 20% slower. That being said, the benchmark also lists two GTX 1080 graphics cards with a performance variance of over 600 points, so perhaps this difference can be chalked up to the benchmark's inaccuracies.   

Nvidia's Max-Q graphics cards are designed for thin and lite notebooks, attempting to get the balance right between noise levels, performance and power consumption, so we can expect to see the RTX 2070 Max-Q run at Nvidia's reference RTX 2070 specs or lower, which already sits below Nvidia's factory overclocked RTX 2070 Founders Edition.

If we assume that this hardware listing is accurate, it is likely that we will see Nvidia's RTX 2070 Max-Q at CES 2019, ushering in a new generation of high-performance gaming notebooks. Ray Tracing is going mobile.

So you take a card incapable of ray tracing, then cut it down by 20 odd percent and put it in a laptop.

I don't know where you are getting the "incapable of Ray tracing" from. Also, as mentioned in the article, the database is pretty useless as it does not list overclocks of other data like that, so comparisons are not that useful.Quote

DICE just cut out a load of the ray tracing in BFV because of the massive performance hit. It was bad enough on the 2080ti. On the 2070 it renders it completely incapable. IMO it is a bad idea to buy a 2070 for RT, given the 2080ti is barely capable of what we have seen thus far.

So they take that GPU, cut it down even more, then put it in a laptop. How do you think it will fare dude? well?

That is what I was saying.Quote
