    Looking at the benchmarks, the price justification for the upgrade to the RTX series GPUs seem pretty disappointing considering they are competing with nearly 3 year old hardware especially the 1070.

    May be a good idea for those not on the Ray tracing bandwagon to score deals on the 1070 laptops being cleared out. :)

    RTX 2070 non maxq, barely faster than GTX 1070N....

    RTX 2070 FC5 = 101avg FPS
    GTX 1070N FC 5 = 91FPS

    RTX 2070 Shadows of the tomb raider: 83FPS
    GTX 1070N Shadows of the tomb raider: 74FPS



    Another RTX 2070, which performs even worse or identical to the 1070N.

    Well guess RTX took a harder hit by the TDP limits than pascal did.

    Just like the desktop launch. :/

    This generation really has been underwhelming.

    The Max-Q branding has been misleading from the start. I don't think the everyday consumer is going to realize that "Max-Q" means it's not a full-power part. (Putting "Max" in the naming? Really?) They'll just read it as "RTX 2080" and think it's like the desktop card.

    For honesty's sake, Nvidia might have used something like their old "Go" branding for the notebook-bound GeForce cards. Nvidia GeForce RTX Go2080; something that is clearly different about the name of the product. (At least then when you google "RTX Go2080" it won't show search results for the review of the desktop card hence wouldn't be misleading.)

    The most disappointing part for me is that 2060 cards are more or less equivalent to 1070s but seem to be more expensive.

    It might be disappointing for those upgrading, but for those who currently don't have a laptop and are looking to make the investment, isn't the decrease in temperature enough to justify the additional ~ 200-300$? From everything I've seen the RTX series chips are running cooler than their GTX counterparts.
