    Hi,

    According to the asus website
    https://www.asus.com/us/Laptops/ROG-ZEPHYRUS-S-GX701/Tech-Specs/

    There are 3 models available with :
    -RTX 2080 Max-Q
    -RTX 2070
    -RTX 2060

    Can someone confirm that the RTX 2070 and 2060 are non Max-Q versions or is this a website error ?
    None of the websites I visited say the 2070 is a max-q one btw.


    Thanks [​IMG]

    Thanks !

    Being very interested by this laptop, the performance difference between the 2070 and the 2080 max-q versions is not worth the significant extra money, right ?

    out of my own experience, it's almost a draw, but someone correct me if needed :)

    Do you use Optimus mode or Gsync mode? Also I am not familiar with the “system agent” and “igpu unslice” settings. Is it necessary to change them?
    Also, when you say “for 3.9 ghz” do you mean you limit your clock speeds to 3.9 ghz via Throttlestop?
    Thanks again ;)

    I think he means 2080 max q vs 2070 max q (not max p). In that case, the 2080 max q should be about 20-25% faster on average from the benchmarks I’ve seen online.

    i used optimus mode so far. i had good results back in the days on my xmg when undervolting the system agent. since then i do it this way :) gpu intel gpu and igpu unslice i took from the first zephyrus model, where it seemed that everyone undervolted that as well :)

    oh and yeah, i limit my cores to whatever i need. i.e. when playing black ops i limit it to 3.8 since i don't notice any difference to 3.9 except more heat etc.

    No sorry if I wasn't clear, i really meant to compare the 2070 max-P to the 2080 max-Q as these are the cards options in this model :).

    I contacted Asus and they confirmed me that the 2070 is a max-P version with a 100w TDP.
    That's why I try to compare the performance/price of the two, for an around 5% game performance difference you have to pay 500$ more where I live. (2500$ for 2070 vs 3000+ for the 2080maxQ)

    From what I see the 2070 is a better option, but maybe I missed something.

    I would have to agree that the 2070 max p seems a better choice than a 2080 max q.

    I recently noticed that the last gen Zephyrus S with the gtx 1080 max q is much cheaper than it used to be. Anyone think it’s worth picking up that laptop over the new Zephyrus S? The new one just seems a bit overpriced...
