Today Nvidia unveiled a brand new design standard that they hope manufacturers will use for their latest gaming laptops.
Called Nvidia Max-Q, this new design standard has been created to bring gaming-level performance to machines that are so slim that they will be comparable to Apple’s MacBook range.
Any devices that subscribe to this design standard will be machines that have been designed specifically for gaming, they will sport GeForce GTX 1060, 1070, or 1080 cards as standard in a thin laptop body that allows for true gaming on the go.
To top that off, Nvidia has also set out plans to integrate a thermal and electrical design to maintain a good temperature with this design and it will also take advantage of Nvidia’s WhisperMode tech that will ensure a Max-Q laptop will run quietly, which it does by pacing a game’s frame rate to optimise power efficiency.
Manufacturers signed on to produce Max-Q machines include Acer, Asus, Alienware, Gigabyte, Lenovo and MSI. There is a long list of other partners, including many specialists too.
Max-Q gaming laptops will start to appear on the market from 27 June. Pricing will vary depending on specs and manufacturer.
