The GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Max-Q is a GPU from NVIDIA released in 2020. This chip has a very good gaming score at 42% in our GPU benchmark.

The GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Max-Q has 8 GiB of GDDR6 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 343 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 2080 SUPER Max-Q GPU core runs at a frequency of 735 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 975 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 2080 SUPER Max-Q supports up to DirectX 12. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.6 features are supported. Higher level APIs such as DirectX 12 give more control to the game developer and can allow them to improve the graphics and performance.

This chip has a Thermal Design Power of 80W: the total amount of waste heat generated. A card that runs hotter will need better cooling and will draw more power from the wall.
