The complete list of laptops with Nvidia RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Max-Q graphics

By Andrei Girbea , last updated on March 7, 2019

It took Nvidia a long while to put their Turing RTX architecture inside laptops, but that’s changing as of January 2019, and we should expect a plethora of gaming notebooks based on RTX graphics to be available in stores in the weeks to come.

We’re going to cover each important launch is separate dedicated articles, as they are released, with in-depth details on their particularities and performance. In the meantime, this article includes a detailed list of all the available gaming laptops with Nvidia RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Max-Q graphics.

Nvidia offers a few different Max-Q implementations designed for thin-and-light computers, as lower-power and more efficient variants of the fully fledged RTX chip (developing).

In theory, RTX 2080 Max-Q laptops run at lower clock speeds than standard RTX 2080 builds, but are also quieter; in practice the performance and acoustics vary between each implementation, as these are highly dependent on the cooling solution and its ability to keep temperatures and potential throttling issues at bay, that’s why you’d have to go through reviews to find out what each particular unit is capable of.

We will however update the article with more details on the RTX 2080/2080 Max-Q mobile chips and their general performance, especially compared to the previous Nvidia Pascal GTX 1080 products. That’s because while some of the Turing notebooks are new-designs, quite a few are in fact hardware-updates of already existing models and it’s going to be interesting to see how the generations compare and which are going to offer better value in the months to come, as the new products are launched and the older ones get to be discounted.

We’ll need to test a few different laptops first though, in order to compile an accurate comparison between generations, so for now you’re only going to find the lists of RTX laptops in this post.

Portable laptops with Nvidia RTX 2080 Max-Q

First, this section includes a list of compact portable options built on RTX 2080 Max-Q graphics, while the second part of the article includes a complete list of the full-size gaming notebooks and desktop replacements with the full-power variant of the RTX 2080 chip.

These are laptops to consider if you’re after a capable gaming machine in a compact envelope, and you’re willing to pay a premium for it, accept high internal/surface temperatures and even sacrifice on some practicality and ergonomic aspects for the sake of portability.

    It says "Full-size laptops with Nvidia RTX 1080 graphics", this is a typo right? Should be 2080 RTX?

    I'll be in Hong Kong next week. I'll be looking for any of these if they are somehow out early over here.

      Probably not, these are expected to ship at the end of the month or in early February.

    Can you please post the list of other RTX laptops? Such as 2070/2070MQ and 2060?

    It'd be a great reference to have.

    I hope one of the OEMs releases a thin 13.3" model – that would be ideal for portability.

    Thanks,
    Peter

      Yep, those are in the works as well.

      It would be impossible to put such graphics inside 13-inchers, but I'd reckon we'll see some compact 14-inchers with RTX 2060, like an update Giganyte Aero 14, for instance. Dell ditched the Alienware 13 as well, that was the only beefy 13-incher left.

    They stopped updating the Aero 14 as far as I know, with the reduction of bezels the Aero 15 is the same size or smaller – the Alienware 13 was so thick and heavy to add volume that way.

    Still, I can dream :).

    Looking forward to the 2070/2060 lists. The 2080 at 150W and 2080MQ at 80-90W are so power hungry there must be a lot of heat or noise to fit in the Ultrabook like shells of the Aero 15Y9 and MSI 65… Too bad there is no 2060MQ yet, but I'm glad I didn't get a 1060 recently now that the 2060 and others look to be so much more performant.

    Thanks,

    Peter
