NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Max-Q technical specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Max-Q

Summary

NVIDIA started GeForce GTX 1080 Max-Q sales 27 June 2017. This is a high-end Pascal architecture notebook card based on 16 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at gamers. 8 GB of GDDR5X memory clocked at 10.01 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 320.3 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. An additional none power connector is required, and power consumption is at 150 Watt.

It provides good gaming and benchmark performance at 63.71 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA Quadro P6000.

Compatibility, dimensions and requirements

Information on video card compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility). For notebook video cards it's notebook size, connection slot and bus - if the video card is inserted into the slot instead of being soldered to the notebook motherboard.
