Finally NVIDIA launches their power efficient GeForce RTX 20-series Max Q GPUs for the laptops that will enable Ray Tracing

At pre-CES 2019, NVIDIA made the announcement of their upcoming RTX 20-series Max Q graphics cards that are specially built for gaming laptops. This will help laptop gamers to sense the taste of Ray Tracing capabilities while playing games.

Apart from unveiling the RTX 2060 for desktop, they have also unveiled the G-Sync Ultimate. So, tactically before 2 days of AMD’s Keynote, NVIDIA has made headlines with all of their new product.

It’s been months since the launch of RTX 2070 and RTX 2080, and with the latest RTX 2060, NVIDIA has offered GPUs for all types of budgets expect the RTX 2050. And cleverly, they have introduced the RTX 20-series Mobile GPUs for laptops.

Like the Pascal generation before, the RTX 20-series Turing cards will filter down into the mobile form using the same basic core configuration as their desktop counterparts. NVIDIA is bringing its mobile RTX cards to more than 40 laptops including the Razer Blade 15.

The RTX 2080 and RTX 2070 are coming in Max Q, which means they will dynamically manage the power used by the GPU to fit inside sleek laptop chassis. The Max Q technology here helps to cut power consumption
by around 10% compared with a full-fat GPU.

They also expect 20 per cent more performance from an Nvidia RTX 2080 Max-Q compared to a GeForce GTX 1080 Max-Q. Also, these GPUs will be 40 per cent more efficient than previous gen as well, that means these GPUs will give higher battery life on laptops.

“Max-Q models with GeForce RTX 2070 deliver up to 20 per cent higher performance than the popular GTX 1070 on traditional games and with GeForce RTX 2060 up to 50 per cent higher performance on traditional games compared to GTX 1060”


The mobile RTX 2080 has been rated at 5-7 Giga Rays per second, on the other hand, RTX 2070 delivers about 4-5, and the RTX 2060 just 3.5 Giga Rays per second.

As well know RTX cards work pretty well when DLSS is off and give mind-blowing frame rates even at 4K. But, if DLSS is turned on they just give a bare 60 FPS that too depending upon the surroundings in the game (for RTX 2070 and RTX 2080).

Now, the question arises whether these mobile GPUs which seem promising can handle games with DLSS turned on in 1080p and even in 4K? NVIDIA even admits that the minimum for a good ray tracing experience is 5 Giga Rays per second.

This means the RTX 2070 and RTX 2060 powered laptops might well struggle to deliver on the full RTX experience. The addition of DLSS support to the Ray Tracing will significantly help mitigate that potential DXR problem. The RTX-equipped laptop will also include NVIDIA’s G-Sync Ultimate.

The full range of RTX-enabled laptops including that from Acer, Asus, Dell, Gigabyte, HP, Lenovo Legion, MSI, Razer, and Samsung will arrive at the end of this month on January 29th.

Also, NVIDIA will pair up games like Battlefield V and ANTHEM, which are well optimized for DLSS support, for pre-launch offers. An RTX 2080 laptop will pre-include both of the games or just one of them for RTX 2070 or RTX 2060 laptops.
