    I'm looking at a yoga 720 15 with the 2gb gtx and a ideapad 720s 15 with the 4gb to max q

    Because there aren't many machines with the 1050 ti maxq can you describe
    All the differences between these two cards that could come up.
    Both machines uhd screen

    Either machine have any egpu advantage
    ?

    What about screen used any data any researcher can come back with based on gaming? Thanks

    id go with the 4GB version. the max Q is downclocked compared to the regular version, but you can always overclock to standard clocks again. you cannot do that with the vRAM though ;) and 4GB is absolute minimum nowadays for any sort of graphics intense application like games....

    as for specific game titles: best to pick the ones ure most interested in and search for system requirements and/or browse online forums for recommendations by other users :) as a general rule of thumb though, i would recommend 4GB as an absolute minimum. it naturally also depends on the graphics settings and display resolution ure using: the higher the settings / higher the resolution, the more vRAM u need.

    btw, i just noticed that u were comparing 1050 Ti and regular 1050, the former of course is a different chip with more performance so thats another bonus.

    yeah i know. as mentioned before, max q just means the clocks are tuned for power consumption and acoustics, otherwise its still a full fledged 1050 Ti which you can adjust via overclocking for regular 1050 Ti clocks :)

    Depends how badly TDP-limited it is. Although FFS why does 1050 Ti even need a Max-Q variant, it's already super low power as it is...

    I don't know why they introduced it since 1050 Ti consume less energy than 1060.
