NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q
The GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q is an NVIDIA GPU that was released in January 2019. This GPU is good at gaming with a score of 33% in our PC benchmark.
The GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q has 8 GiB of GDDR6 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 375 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 256 bits. When choosing a GPU, plan ahead and select a model with enough memory for your needs. High resolutions such as 4K require significantly more memory than 1080p as there is more data to display on the screen.
In terms of clock speed, the GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q GPU core runs at a frequency of 885 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1185 MHz. A clock speed is the frequency at which the GPU updates. A higher speed means more processing can happen per cycle. This is useful only when comparing cards of the same generation, as other architectures may process more or less per clock.
As for rendering API support, the GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.6 features are supported. If your GPU is too old and doesn't support a newer API certain titles may not be playable.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q has a TDP of 80W, this is the amount of heat energy produced by the chip as a byproduct. The higher the TDP, the more heat is produced.
