NVIDIA Releases GeForce RTX 20-series SUPER Mobile GPUs

NVIDIA today released the GeForce RTX 20-series SUPER mobile GPUs. The lineup consists of the GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER, RTX 2070 SUPER, and their Max-Q variants. Both SKUs have identical GPU core configurations to their desktop counterparts, with the RTX 2080 SUPER (mobile) featuring 3,072 CUDA cores, and the RTX 2070 SUPER (mobile) featuring 2,560. What sets them apart are clock speeds, aggressive power-management, and the introduction of new low-power GDDR6 memory chips that run at lower voltages. Unlike the desktop RTX 2080 SUPER, which uses 15.5 Gbps memory, the mobile versions use 14 Gbps ones.

The GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER (mobile) ticks at 1560 MHz GPU Boost and 14 Gbps memory. Its power envelope is set at "150 W+." The RTX 2080 SUPER Max-Q is ticks at 1080 MHz, with an 80 W power envelope. The RTX 2070 SUPER (mobile) is clocked at 1380 MHz with 115 W power, while its Max-Q variant runs at 1150 MHz at 80 W. NVIDIA is introducing Dynamic Boost, its own power-balancer between the CPU and GPU, and Advanced Optimus, an improved version of its iGPU-dGPU switcher. NVIDIA is targeting these GPUs at high-resolution (1440p and above) gaming notebooks, particularly some of the newer ones that come with refresh-rates as high as 300 Hz. Notebooks with the new GPUs will go on sale starting April 15, 2020.

Not hating, but I still prefer to have powerful GPU's in a case so I can stick big heatsinks on them.

I agree with Hardware Canucks that high refresh-rate TN-film displays in gaming notebook will be the sh t trend of 2020.

Ah yeah I just cancelled my pre-order of the G14 Zephyrus. :laugh:

I'm going to wait for any 15.6" inchers with at least a 2070 Super Mobile or Max-Q.

Dude you know this is for a different purpose than in a desktop case. :oops:

Yeah, TN is like weeds, you keep pulling them out, but they just keep coming back with a vengeance.

Also agree with them that OEMs will use high pixel-density and 10bpc to somehow market these bed-pans as "IPS-like." That's going to happen 100%. Happened with the very first wave of TN-based 4K monitors too.

For a desktop monitor they are fine. High quality TNs are much better than people think. Not the same level as a mid range IPS, but not horrible.
But on a laptop where viewing angle is key... ughhh i dread it.
I had a TN Asus laptop until 4 years ago. Dont get me started is all I'll say. :laugh:

Thing is, a high quality TN Is still not better than a medium quality IPS, and often not much cheaper either. They now sell only on absolute budget bin price, misinformed customers and those who seek high refresh at the expense of all else.

When you can buy a 24 inch IPS at around 100-120 bucks... why bother with TN? Laptops are a last stand because you can't really choose your combo all the time, what you often see in the budget and midrange is that the panel is used as a sneaky way to cut cost and still have better specs otherwise. Its a trade off, but one many customers are not making consciously. The glaring lack of what type of panel in the spec sheet on webstores causes this. Its no coincidence that info is often missing...

But yeah, TN on laptops.... painful.

The only selling point of TN is their high refresh rate. Reminds me of vendors selling a vga card witj only marketing it as 4gb card, 2gb card and people buying it because higher is better mentality.

Well, in numbers more can be better or worse. In case of timings, higher is slower and worse ;)
More VRAM on a card may or may not be properly utilised because it depends on the GPU actually if it needs the corresponding VRAM volume.
