    Exclusive: NVIDIA RTX Mobility Graphics Cards Lineup Leaked Wccftech.com

    And Nvidia continue put it it's warm hands on the crippled version of Mobile graphics (Max-Q design).

    So we have just received details confirming that NVIDIA will be rolling out its RTX mobility lineup soon. The last time we heard from our source, they confirmed the existence of the RTX 2080 Max-Q mobility part and the likelihood that it will be the first part to launch (more on this later). Now, however, we have what appears to be the complete parts list for the RTX series.

    The lineup will be as follows:

    • NVIDIA RTX 2070 Mobility
    • NVIDIA RTX 2070 MAX-Q Mobility
    • NVIDIA RTX 2060 Ti Mobility
    • NVIDIA RTX 2060 Mobility
    • NVIDIA RTX 2050 Ti Mobility
    • NVIDIA RTX 2050 Mobility
    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q mobile design might have been pushed to Q1’19
    Historically, NVIDIA has moved on to using desktop dies in laptops – which makes it very hard to predict what they will launch – but we are pretty sure about this one since its the only GPU that has the suffix “M” in its machine ID.

    I also received the following quote from a random bird that wandered in from the open window:

    We will put the 2080-Max Q into the current thin 15 and the 17 with nVidia’s help. It’s still unclear on when the 2070 will be out. I don’t think the weight will increase significantly on this new card. Our ID/design will be pretty much the same as what you saw.”


    This is great news for gamers who want something more portable than a tower because NVIDIA’s Max-Q designs are the closest you can ever get to desktop-grade performance in a laptop:rolleyes::rolleyes: Heat and cooling are usually quite innovative for these laptops and clocks are lower than their desktop counterparts. TDP is usually the next big concern but considering 12 NFF is an improved version of 16nm FinFET this is something that we should have quite a bit of leeway with (Low clocks + 12 NFF = decent TDP).

    That's a weird lineup of cards, in as much as it looks like they'll all include ray tracing ability given the RTX moniker. The weird thing being that the desktop cards only include the RTX moniker for 2070 upwards, and probably won't for the lower end cards (did they say this or was this a rumour?). So, it's strange that weak cards like 2050 & 2060 contain ray tracing where such desktop cards will not. Although, if BF5 is only targetting 1080p 60fps when running ray tracing then you probably don't need a beefy GPU core to target 1080p 60fps - as long as you've got a decent ray tracing core to keep up with 1080p 60fps from a ray tracing perspective then it's quite possible that these low end cards have enough traditional GPU rendering muscle to push to 1080p 60fps alongside the seperate work that the ray tracing core is doing.

    Pretty funny if true. A 2070 probably won't be any better than the current 1080.

    Not so trustworthy from what I can see. And the lack of mentioning the full-fledged 2080 smells of rotten eggs. If not Nvidia will push it out together with 2080 Max-Crippled early 2019. Take it as rumors.

    Unless a 2080 is too much power for a laptop, and they're gonna keep power & specs of desktop cards in notebook same-named examples, e.g. notebook 2070 just as fast as desktop 2070. But yeah, rumours, seems like there's some inconsistencies.

    Nvidia Turing - Overdue and Overpriced
    Overlord Gaming
    Published on Oct 8, 2018
    Nvidia's 2000 series has arrived far behind schedule and for far too high a price. This video analyzes what the RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti would have cost if Nvidia still followed their own trends.

    Anyway, I don't feel any buyer's remorse having just ordered a P775TM with an 'old' gtx1080...

    The only thing that you don't get with a 1080 is accelerated ray tracing, but consider that

    1. It's hardly going to get any use, for at least a few years and
    2. By the time it's being used frequently, newer cards will be doing ray tracing MUCH better than Turing

    There is literally no reason to buy BETA technology as expensive as this other than to say you have it.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 3DMark Timespy Performance Benchmark Leaks Out – Slightly Faster Than GeForce GTX 1080 Wccftech.com

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 3DMark Timespy Benchmark Leaks Out – Slightly Faster Than GTX 1080 Custom Models
    The benchmark results posted by the source aren’t very clear since it only displays the overall score and not the individual graphics score. The system was configured with a Core i7-8700K and ZOTAC GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card with a reported clock speed of 1950 MHz (Boost clocks). The score was 8151 points for the entire system and as I mentioned, there are no individual scores provided since the benchmark is hidden.

    [​IMG]
    The interesting part is that the GeForce GTX 1080 with the same CPU scores around 7500 points in 3DMark Timespy. The Core i7-8700K used here is clocked at 3.70 GHz which is the base clock of the CPU so it wasn’t overclocked and not affecting in a higher overall benchmark score. The GeForce RTX 2070 used is supposed to be a factory overclocked model so the performance can be expected to be slightly better on the new card compared to the Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1080.
