Max-Q redefines how thin gaming notebooks should be made

NVIDIA had just introduced the Max-Q. A new design approach redefining gaming laptops or notebooks from the ground up – enabling a thinner, quieter and faster. They will be available from all major OEMs worldwide, starting on June 27.

Max-Q, an integral part of NASA’s mission to launch man into space, is defined as the point at which the aerodynamic stress on a rocket in atmospheric flight is maximised. Thus, the design of the rocket is precision-engineered around Max-Q. NVIDIA has applied a similar philosophy to designing gaming laptops, enabling OEMs to build laptops that are 3X thinner with up to 3x more performance of previous generation products.

The results: a high-performance gaming platform, that is as small as 18mm thick – as thin as a MacBook Air – with up to 70 percent more gaming performance than what is currently available.

The Ultimate Gaming Laptop

With Max-Q designed laptops, gamers can experience high-fidelity gaming and high-resolution entertainment whenever and wherever they want it. Max-Q designed laptops support the entire

GeForce gaming platform, which includes the latest gaming technologies, Game Ready drivers, NVIDIA G-SYNCTM display technology, VR, 4K gaming, and more.

Max-Q designed laptops are also ready for NVIDIA GeForce Experience, a complete software platform that provides automatic game profiles to ensure gamers are playing with the right settings out of the box, ensuring an optimal gaming experience every time.

Introducing NVIDIA WhisperMode Technology

NVIDIA also introduced its silent NVIDIA WhisperMode technology, which makes laptops run much quieter while gaming. WhisperMode intelligently paces the game’s frame rate while simultaneously configuring the graphics settings for optimal power efficiency. This reduces the overall acoustic level for gaming laptops. Completely user adjustable and available for all Pascal GPU-based laptops, WhisperMode will be available soon through a GeForce Experience software update.

Availability

MaxQ-designed gaming laptops equipped with GeForce GTX 1080, 1070 and 1060 will be available starting on June 27 from the world’s leading laptop OEMs and system builders, including Acer, Aftershock, Alienware, ASUS, Clevo, Dream Machine, ECT, Gigabyte, Hasee, HP, LDLC, Lenovo, Machenike, Maingear, Mechrevo, MSI, Multicom, Origin PC, PC Specialist, Sager, Scan, Terrans Force, Tronic’5, and XoticPC. Features, pricing and availability may vary.
