Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Top-Tier Laptop Video Card

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 is currently the most powerful video card for laptops. This GPU can easily crunch all the latest hardware-demanding games, thanks to fast and power-efficient Nvidia Pascal architecture and robust specifications. With specs being only slightly weaker than on the desktop PC-use GeForce GTX 1080, the laptop version of the same GPU can truly enable gaming performance of full-blown desktop gaming rigs in the notebook form factor.

It’s worth noting that there’s also a Max Q version of the GTX 1080. Max Q variants of the GeForce GPUs are more power efficient and run cooler at expense of weaker graphics processing power. By how much depends on a GPU configuration of a particular laptop model. But, most laptops with the GTX 1080 have a full-blown version of the card.
