Nvidia 1070 vs 1080 Max-Q – Laptop Graphics Comparison Benchmarks
If it's worth upgrading to first let's discuss the differences between these two laptops, the laptop with the 1070 has 10 gigabytes of ddr4 ram at 2400 megahertz, while the laptop with the Mexica 1080 has 24 gigabytes. Although the difference is small, I've previously run benchmarks with different amounts of memory and found that, in general, additional memory can improve overall frames per second in games. However, the increases seem to tail off up to 16 gigabytes, basically, just be aware that a small percentage of the difference may be due to the difference in memory as we're. Only testing at the 1080p resolution here as that's the display that both laptops use other than that both laptops have the same Intel 7700 HQ quad core CPU and use an SSD for the primary hard drive, which is running Windows 10. With all available updates applied, no manual overclocking was performed for any of these tests, and Jason can vsync were both disabled. The main difference here is, of course, the One Laptop is running with an nvidia geforce gtx 1070, while the newer laptop has an nvidia geforce gtx 1080 with max q, we can see straight away that the specs are a bit different. In particular, the max q 1080 has more cuda cores than the 1070, but it's clocked slower to keep it cooler and quieter. 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, as well as the results of some benchmarking tools in player, unknowns battlegrounds.
We can see some interesting behavior where the 1070 is actually performing the max Q 1080 at the lower settings. However, at medium settings are above the 1080, with Mexico pulls out in front. This interesting behavior is also observed in rise of the Tomb Raider, which is an automated benchmark and further supports the last result, which is great as pub G, is hard to benchmark consistently. So I was concerned that my results were just bad. None of the other tests performed this way, though so I'm thinking it's something to do with these specific games rather than a general trend again only at the highest settings does the max Q 1080 take the lead with DirectX 12, giving a slight edge over DirectX 11. In most cases, watchdogs to saw are a nice little boost with the max Q 1080, even at Ultra settings when were able to hit the 60fps. But, however, with that said, I still found the game completely playable at Ultra settings with the 1070 shadow of mortal was almost hitting 120 fps and, above in all tests, quite impressive. Only that ultra result from the 1070. Let it down either of these graphics cards are pretty much overkill for this game unless you've got a display with a fast refresh rate. Doom is another game where the differences aren't that great the results are all fairly close together, regardless of the settings worth the 10 70 in Mexico, 10 80 consistently gave me over 100 FPS.
In Ghost Recon. There was a lot of difference between the two graphics cards at the lowest settings and it seems to come much closer together at very high and ultra this game loves CPU pal and at the highest settings we were starting to become bottle necked, resulting in the little Difference between the 1070 and max Q 1080. The Witcher 3 file is a similar pattern where we can see the larger gap between the two at the lower settings in either case even a maximum settings. Both options do well above 60 fps, which should be fine for most people in this game. Ashes of the singularity performed fairly, similarly, between low and extreme settings. Only when we step into crazy territory, two things start to degrade more noticeably. Additionally, once again, in most cases, DirectX 12 gives a nice little boost over DirectX 11 now onto the benchmarking tools, while a useful indicator note that these results are less practical compared to the real world gaming tests previously shown in heaven benchmark there's a much larger difference In framerate at lower settings compared to the highest settings, whereas in valley benchmark, all of the results are about the same apart, regardless of the setting level used with the 3d mark times play and fire strike benchmarks there's much less of a gap between the two. This is most likely due to the fact that these are synthetic tests where performance scales much better when compared with actual games.
So, as expected, the 1080 with Maxie you came out on top in most tests performing 10 point 15 percent better on average compared to the 1070. I was surprised that the 1070 performed better for some of the games at lower settings compared to the max Q. 1080. I'M thinking that those games prefer a higher clocked card rather than more Kuta calls at lower settings. So is it worth upgrading to the max Q 1080? If you already have a laptop with a 1070 that's? Definitely not based on these results. It doesn't really seem, or while you'll only be looking at a small improvement overall and it's. An expensive upgrade is, in most cases, you'd, probably be replacing the entire laptop. If, on the other hand, you're considering buying a new laptop with either of these cards, then it depends on what you're, after both of these options are generally overkill for 1080p 60 Hertz gaming. However, at once one, so perhaps larger resolutions both start to make more sense, it depends on the games that you'll be playing as we've seen. The FPS can differ quite a lot. Basically, if you can afford a laptop with the Mexica 1080, want something powerful that we use a little less power than a full 1080, while being quite old, then go for it, but in most cases I think that generally cheaper 1070 is more than up to the Jump for most games and it's. What I'd personally pick out of the the 1080 with max Q, should use less power and produce less noise.
However, as both of the laptops I've tested, are completely different, it wouldn't really be a fair comparison. Here, I'd need two laptops of the same brand and model to do that: justice, regardless I'm sure people will want to know what I saw so keeping in mind that these results are basically useless, as both laptops were from completely different companies with different cooling designs. These are the results. We can see that the max q10 ad actually ran a little hotter than the 1070. However, it was also much quieter, which is one of its selling points. I hope that this video has shown you the real world differences in performance between the nvidia, 1070 and max Q, 1080 laptop graphics cards and helped you choose between them.
