Yesterday, we published an article about Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 15 (GX551QS) that confirmed the number of CUDA cores offered by the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q , now thanks to the leaked specifications and first performance test through Geekbench 5.2.3 benchmarking software in OpenCL test. It should be noted that the 6144 CUDA Cores of this GPU reaches 1.54 GHz, so it offers 2560 CUDA Cores less than its desktop version that reaches 1.71 GHz as it has no problems to cool and feed the silicon.
All the numbers translate into the desktop Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 scoring 180,010 points in that benchmark, making it 29 percent faster than the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q in this notebook, which achieved a score of 139,181. At this point we need to note that all laptop models could have different frequencies, so this performance could be higher or lower depending on the equipment purchased.
The Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q has 256 CUDA Cores more than the desktop GeForce RTX 3070, but of course, this GPU reaches 1.72 GHz, so in terms of performance the difference is only 1 percent, which is within the margin of error of tests. This means that it also outperforms the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (which only came out on desktop computers), so it is not bad at all, although of course, the biggest problem here is the price of the equipment that they integrate this GPU, which will exceed the 3,500 euro barrier.
