This is the same GPU (TU106, 12 nm FinFET) as the desktop version with 2304 shaders, a 256-bit interface, 8 GB GDDR6 memory, and the same memory clock speed – 14000 MHz. Only the core has a bit downclocked frequencies – around 10% to 13% lower base and boost clock (1215 MHz – 1440 MHz). The TDP of the mobile RTX 2070 is 115W.
For more thinner devices, NVIDIA offers RTX 2070 Max-Q. There are two versions – 80W TDP variant with 885 MHz to 1185 MHz core clock (base and boost frequencies) and 90W TDP variant with 1185 MHz to 1305 MHz core clock (base and boost frequencies). The memory of the Max-Q version is downclocked to 12000 MHz.
The RTX 2070 is faster than the Max-Q one but needs better cooling and the power consumption is higher. The Max-Q version can be found in much thinner laptops because of its lower TDP and lower power consumption.
