The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Max-Q is a high-end mobile graphics chip based on the same GP104 GPU as the normal GTX 1070 but it’s designed for thin and light notebooks with lowered base frequency (1101–1215MHz) and lowered maximum frequency (1265–1379MHz). The drivers for the GTX 1070 Max-Q optimize the GPU’s power efficiency instead of bumping up performance and also keeping the voltage at 1V while ensuring quiet operations of the cooling fans (maximum of 40 dB) by constantly adjusting the clock speeds.
The rest of the specs are identical to the regular GTX 1070, including the memory configuration – 256-bit width, 8GB GDDR5 clocked at 8000 MHz. The CUDA core count is 2048, TMUs are 170 and ROPs are 48. The whole chip, including the memory controller, is rated at 80-90W TDP and as for the features it supports, they are the usual – DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0b, H.265 decoder and support for Multi-Projection, VR Ready, G-Sync, Vulkan, DirectX 12 and Multi-Monitor.
