Have you been holding off buying a new gaming laptop in anticipation of NVIDIA's Turing GPU architecture being ported over to mobile? Well, good news—it appears NVIDIA and its OEM partners are getting ready to introduce laptop models featuring mobile versions of the GPU maker's GeForce RTX series in the near future. There has already been (unofficial) chatter of NVIDIA prepping its mobile GeForce RTX series for a launch right before the Consumer Electronics Shows (CES) in Las Vegas next month. While that is not for certain of course, the latest round of leaks suggest it's at least plausible. As spotted by Twitter user and notorious leaker TUM APISAK, there are several mobile GeForce RTX...

NVIDIA has yet to announce its next-generation GeForce lineup, or even offer any hints, other than being booked to discuss its next-gen GPUs at the Hot Chips conference in August. The company's hardware partners have been a bit more forthcoming, though, especially Lenovo, which will reportedly launch a Legion Y530 laptop with a GeForce GTX 1160 inside. We will get to that in a moment, but first let's talk about the name. There has been plenty of speculation as to what the next round of GeForce products will be called, with the GeForce 11 series and GeForce 20 series the two leading candidates. Interestingly enough, it was also Lenovo that seemingly confirmed the former. During a recent on-camera... Read more...
Acer whet our appetites with by teasing its Predator Triton 700 earlier this year, but today we’re hearing more about the no compromises gaming laptop. Specifically, we’re learning that the Predator Triton 700 will be one of the first products to take full advantage of NVIDIA’s Max-Q Design. As Marco explained earlier today, Max-Q is a deft combination of GPU tuning, game optimization, and thermal management, which helps keep GeForce GTX 10-Series graphics cards operating at peak efficiency while under stress. Acer goes one step further, invoking NASA’s efforts with rocker design. “Max-Q, an integral part of NASA’s mission to launch man into space, is defined as the point at which the aerodynamic...

NVIDIA CEO Jen Hsun Huang just delivered a keynote speech at Computex Taipei, during which he unveiled some new mobile technology designed to optimize game performance, in smaller notebook form factors than have been previously possible. NVIDIA calls the technology Max-Q Design, and it enables NVIDIA’s notebook partners to cram high-performance GPUs like the GeForce GTX 1080 into notebooks that are a fraction of the size of previous-gen offerings. Jen Hsun brought out a couple of system to illustrate the differences between older gaming notebooks and next-gen notebooks featuring Max-Q design. Although there are a myriad of designs on the market, with varying z-heights and form factors, etc.,... Read more...
