There are a total of 28 variants of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3000 series for the laptop market. VideoCardz has a full overview over here. With the RTX 30 generation, NVIDIA is no longer using Max-Q and Max-P branding, instead OEMs can pick between various TGP configurations.

Which one will be used by notebook manufacturers is completely up to them, however, as shown above, they simply chose not to. For this reason, you may find a laptop with GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q which is slower than RTX 3060 Laptop GPU.
