Looks like further details regarding NVIDIA’s upcoming 20-series mobile GPUs have leaked out, and guess what? This time around team green will be making laptop versions (mobility and Max-Q) of pretty much the whole Turing lineup. The leaks were shared by none other than TUM APISAK and seems like NVIDIA is going all out with Turing in the notebook space.

GeForce RTX 2080 Ti mobile

Lets start with the heavy-weight, the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. Apparently, the flagship will find a home in Asus’s Zephyrus M GM501GS gaming laptop. The surprising part is that the mobile version isn’t all that different from the full-fledged desktop one. In fact, it packs the same CUDA core count and memory, with a supposed max boost clock of 1.54 GHz. There’s no word on a Max-Q version as of now, but if NVIDIA actually manages to power laptops with the RTX 2080 Ti, they are going to be one hell of a gaming powerhouse.

NVIDIA RTX 2060 mobile

Now looking at the “common-people” GPUs, you’ve got the RTX 2060, 2070 and 2080 plus their Max-Q versions. The RTX 2060 mobile and Max-Q have rather unorthodox specs. Like the 2080 Ti, we expect the core count to be the same as the full-fledged SKU. However, when you compare the clocks that’s where it gets interesting. The regular mobility version has a lower clock speed but a higher memory clock, while the Max-Q has a marginally higher core clock, but the memory has been tuned down. This is highly unusual, as the memory clocks are generally uniform across all mobile SKUs and it’s the core clocks that take the hit.


Moving onto the GeForce RTX 2070, the core count and memory are once again the same as the desktop variant with a core clock of 1.3 GHz (and 2304 CUDA Cores). There’s no info regarding the mobility version, and only the Max-Q version shows up in the leak. It’d be interesting to see if the Max-Q and mobility versions of the 2070 feature memory and clock speed schemes similar to the 2060, or fall back to the traditional design like the mobile 2080s.

Speaking of the RTX 2080s, yes they do adopt the more standard scheme when it comes to the clocks. The core clock on the mobile version is limited to 1.59 GHz while the Max-Q variant has a moderately lower clock of 1.23 GHz. The memory clocks aren’t mentioned, but I think the memory on the Max-Q version will be constrained to cut down the TDP. The rest of the specs are pretty much the same as the desktop card.

The mobility and Max-Q versions of the RTX cards are expected to be unveiled at CES 2019, along with some of the most powerful gaming laptops till date. We’ll keep you up to speed if more info regarding the Turing mobile lineup leaks out. Cheers!
