NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q Refresh: specs and benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q Refresh


NVIDIA started GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q Refresh sales 4 March 2020. This is Turing architecture desktop card based on 12 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 8 GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 11 GHz are supplied, and together with 256 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 352.0 GB/s.

Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface. No additional power connector is required, and power consumption is at 115 Watt.

It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 0.84 percent of a leader's which is NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
