At Computex 2017, which runs from May 30 to June 3 in Taipei, NVIDIA introduced the concept of Max-Q. According to the developer, this is a new approach to design, which completely reconsiders the approach to gaming laptops, making it thinner, quieter and faster. NVIDIA Max-Q will be available to all major partners to manufacturers from June 27, 2017.
As NVIDIA notes, Max-Q will create notebooks three times thinner and up to three times more powerful than previous generations. The thickness can be about 18 mm, increasing by 70% the currently available performance. In the heart of NVIDIA Max-Q there are video cards GeForce GTX 1080, 1070 or 1060, on architecture Pascal with memory GDDR5X. NVIDIA Game Ready drivers provide optimal system performance for games. Also attention is paid to new thermal solutions that provide an opportunity to increase performance, but at the same time make the laptop quieter. Separately, the WhisperMode technology for quiet operation during games is noted. It optimizes the frame rate in the game and the graphics settings, reducing the noise level. This technology will be available for all laptops based on Pascal graphics using the software update GeForce Experience. Laptops with Max-Q will be able to cope with 4K-games and content of virtual reality. Such models of notebooks will be on sale from June 27 from manufacturers such as Acer, Alienware, ASUS, Gigabyte, Lenovo, MSI, and so on.
