    In my case, what impresses me is the performance per watt, at such low limit. At 90w tdp, we have basically desktop RTX 2060 performance. This is huge in comparison to the 200w tdp, which doesn't double the performance, yet it doubles power draw for less than 50% gains.

    Which tests show 2080 Max-q performing on the level of the RTX 2060/2070 Max-q? Can you find benchmarks which would show this on same hardware (same RAM, same CPU, same cooling system, same drivers)? I hope you are not judging it by Notebookcheck comparisons because they are utterly useless since they compare different hardware. I am genuinely curious to see that because it does not make sense for 2080 Max-q to be slower than 2060 in same exact notebook model with same exact hardware.

    he was comparing 2080 max-q to full fat 2060 and 2070. its between the two, performance-wise.

    Not quite, the 80w 2080 Max-q on par the 2070 and the 90w model is slightly faster than the 2070.

    Unless you're talking about a desktop 2060 then it's not in the same league.

    Ah, in that case the 2070 will be slightly faster with than the 2080 Max-q assuming it's using the i7 8700 (no oc) and the 2060 will be about 10-20% slower

    I could be wrong, but I though maxq was more about high quality build for gamers that would rather have business grade laptops. MSI prestige series is a good example.

    Thats what they want you t on think, so they can have an excuse to charge more for a more "premium" sku.

    Oh and the MSI P65 and GS series build quality isn't "good" by any stretch of imagination. It's quite flimsy even if its an all metal build.

    They spin it that way but they are just the same cards cut down or down clocked.

    Because "hey we hear you want small and light so here is the same gimped cards we used to give you for mobility focus" dosent seem to have the same market traction.

    Not gonna say they are bad but in all honesty I would rather have a XX60 card paired with a decent CPU and features than a XX70 maxQ for the same price as a regular XX70.

    like I get what? 10% more performance for 30-40% more price. That's OC range imo.
