The end is nigh for chunky, bulky gaming laptops, at least if Nvidia’s Max-Q design approach leads to new standards. Announced at Computex, Max-Q helps make gaming laptops thinner, as well as improve speeds and reduce fan noise.
While Nvidia announced that Max-Q will enhance laptops featuring its GeForce GTX 1080, 1070 and 1060 GPUs from major vendors starting on June 27th, we’re still learning which specific notebooks will feature that tech. Here’s are the models that have been announced so far:
Acer’s first Max-Q notebook is the 0.74-inch Predator Triton 700. Starting at $2,999, it features a 15.6-inch, 1920 x 1080 G-Sync panel with an Intel 7th-Gen Core processor and a pair of overclockable Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 GPUs and dual NVMe PCIe SSDs in RAID 0 configuration.
