Nvidia 1070 vs 1070 Max-Q – Laptop Graphics Comparison Benchmarks
With all available updates applied, no manual overclocking was performed for any of these tests and J sync was disabled. The main difference between the two laptops is, of course, that one is running your standard nvidia geforce gtx 1070, while the other laptop has an nvidia geforce gtx. 1070 with mexico design, the specs between these two graphics cards are slightly different. The main difference is that the max q10 70 has lower base and boost clock speeds, and these are the ranges that nvidia list on their website and they state that the bass and boost clock speeds depend on the particular laptops thermal and electrical system designed. So essentially, one laptop with the max q graphics card can perform differently to another laptop that also has max q, graphics, so that's worth keeping in mind, I didn't have any thermal throttling in either laptop, so I don't believe this was a limitation here as the regular 1070 has higher bass and boost clock speeds; it also uses more power, meaning it will run hotter and require more cooling resulting in more noise, and this is what max Q graphics seem to reduce. With that in mind, let's take a look at our benchmarks and find out how each of these cards perform will cover both real world gaming benchmarks first and then the results of some benchmarking tools. All games were tested with the 1080p resolution using all available selling presets over what shows a fair improvement of max settings, although the difference gets much larger as you drop down in settings personally, I thought it was nice and smooth even at epic settings on the max Q10, 70, as if in the one percent lows were above 60 fps and on average overall setting levels, the 1070 performed around 34 better than the max q10 70 rise of the Tomb Raider was tested using the built in benchmark with DirectX, 12 and again we're.
Seeing a larger difference at the lowest setting levels and even at max settings where the difference is the lowest we're, still seeing a 34 improvement with the 1070 player on moon's battlegrounds was tested with the latest 1.0 version using the replay feature, and this game showed the Lowest difference between the two graphics cards, possibly because it just doesn't seem to be very well optimized in my test for 1070 is only performing 4 percent better than the max key version. But of course these results can vary quite a bit depending on what's, going on. In game watch dogs 2 is a fairly resource intensive game, but it doesn't really need a high frame rate to enjoy and it ran well at max settings with either laptop on average. The 1070 is performing around 34 better than the max q10 70. Here Ghost Recon was tested with the built in benchmark tool and is another resource. Intensive game we're not getting great results at max settings, but it runs fairly well at very high or lower, and the 1070 performs around 21 better than the max q10 70 in The Witcher 3 were almost able to get 60fps even at max settings with the max Q10 70 and this game doesn't even really need a high frame rate to enjoy on average overall setting levels. The 1070 is performing 27 percent better than the max queue version in this game. Shadow of war using the built in benchmark showed a fair improvement over around 31 percent on average between the two graphics cards, although we're able to average over 60 FPS at Ultra settings, even with the max euwe 1070, so both are performing good.
I found battlefield 1 to run quite well on most hardware and even in max settings that rents smoothly on both laptops, as shown by the fairly high one percent lose. Once again, we can see the gap between the two get larger as the settings drop down even at max settings. The 1070 is performing 38 percent better than the max q10 70 csgo was also quite interesting. There was a huge difference between the two with the 1070 performing 95 percent better on average. I ran these tests multiple times and can only presume that it's a well optimised game. Dota 2 ran well on both laptops, although I'm testing with a fairly intensive replay here, we can see this quite a nice performance increase when running with the 1070 around 37 percent better than the max q10 70 doom is another game that usually performs pretty well, regardless Of graphics, power and I've tested it using Vulcan, although there's not too much of a change between the setting levels again, the 1070 is performing around 37 percent better than the max Q version before we get into the benchmark and tools. I'Ll just quickly note: the performance improvement over the games tested is a 32 increase for the 1070 over the max q 1070. A pretty good result, and I didn't actually include the csgo test as I'm. Still a bit unsure about that 95 percent improvement. It really seems to depend on the game now on to the benchmarking tools, while a useful indicator note that these results are generally less practical compared to the real world gaming tests previously shown in the heaven benchmark.
The difference between the two graphics cards is fairly similar at all setting levels, whereas in valley benchmark the differences between the two are much closer together with the max q 1070. Actually, coming out slightly ahead at high settings, I've also tested the latest superposition benchmark from Unigine and again there's a similar increase. Finally, I've tested five strike and time spike benchmarks from 3d mark, which showed a similar increase on average. From these benchmark tools, the 1070 is performing just under 12 percent, better than the max cute and 7e, so not actually that much of a difference compared to the real world gaming results, which was interesting. Usually the difference is much bigger. So, as expected, the 1070 came out ahead of the max Q 1070 in just about every test performing over 28 percent better on average in the games and benchmark tools shown here a much bigger difference than I expected. To be honest, I thought the results would be closer, as the 1060 only should make percent improvement over the max Q 1060. It seems like it may be fairer to compare the max Q 1070 with the 1060 so make sure to subscribe for that, one. If you've already got a laptop with the max Q 1070, is it worth upgrading to the full 1070? Although the performance difference is a fair amount, I generally say no, unless you really need it as in most cases, this would involve buying a completely new laptop, a fairly expensive process.
If you're looking at buying a new laptop and trying to decide between either of these, then it depends more on the games. You'Re wanting to play with them realistically both offer a great experience at 1080p. Personally, I play most of the games tested early on so I'd. Lean towards the 1070, especially if I was playing on a monitor above 60 Hertz for the better experience at higher settings, but if you're playing less demanding games or have no issues dropping the settings down a little. The max Q 1070 still gives a great experience. The 1070, with max Q, should use less power and produce less noise. However, as both the laptops I've tested are completely different in terms of overall form factor as they're from different companies, it wouldn't really be a fair comparison. Ideally, I'd need two laptops of the same brand and model to do that. Justice. With that said, the max q 1070 run it around the same temps as the 1070. However it's, also in a thinner body compared to the 1070 laptop. So, in my case, I've got a thinner laptop, but the trade off is that the temps and system volume aren't that much different from a regular 1070 laptop. I hope that these benchmarks have shown you the real world differences in performance between the nvidia, 1070 and 1070, with max q, laptop graphics cards and helped you choose between them.
