    "Acer's brand-new Triton 700 gaming laptops promise maximum performance in slim cases. The highlight is the mechanical keyboard in the 19 mm slim 15.6-inch casing. Interesting: Acer does not specify the exact GPU and only talks about "Nvidia GeForce GTX GPUs". "

    Linus says the laptop software is showing GTX 1080.

    However it says "apparently" a 1080. Note how they say their own testing has shown as core of 17k, and also that the laptop performs 40% better than a 1070. A 1080 laptop at most performs 15-20% better than a 1070 so this definitely is some voodoo magic and likely a 1080ti or god forbid a "titan" for a laptop

    Actually, it's a lower power 1080 "M", called the "1080 Max-Q".

    I doubt it will perform at the performance of a full desktop 1080, or even the best full 1080 laptop GPU, but perhaps it's a good "fit" for slim laptops that want a 1080, but can't actually cool it.

    What I want to know is if the "1080 Max-Q" outperforms the Razer Book Pro "1080" which performs like a 1070 due to it's 250w power supply (among other things).

    Does anyone know what the PSU for the Acer Triton 700 is being shown with? And, what PSU wattage it ships with?

    Hopefully at least a 330w like the other full performance 1080 laptops.

    Nvidia's "1080ti Max-Q" would perform like a current 1080.

    The Nvidia "1080 / 1070 Max-Q" idea of putting out less performance but naming it "MAX-Q" and number labeling it 1 level higher than the performance it delivers is ludicrous.

    Why not just ship Acer Triton's with a 1070 instead of a "Max-Q 1080", or a 1060 instead of a "Max-Q 1070"???
    NVIDIA prepping more efficient GeForce GTX 1070/1080 Max-Q for ultra-thin gaming laptops
    Posted on Friday, April 28 2017 by Thomas De Maesschalck

    "According to the site, the Max-Q version of the GeForce GTX 1070 will have a TDP of around 90W, down from the 120W of the original version, whereas the TDP of the GeForce GTX 1080 Max-Q drops from 165W to an impressive 110W.

    At the event, Acer revealed its Triton 700 will be capable of scoring 17000 points in the 3DMark 11 Performance test. This suggests the Max-Q version of the GTX 1080 will be only about 15 percent slower than the regular mode"
    https://www.dvhardware.net/article66464.html

    So Max-Q GPU's are confirmed to be 15% slower under the same number name, so what's the point? The lead up suggested they were new process GPU's with better efficiency, so why not let them perform at the same or *higher* performance?

    What Nvidia "marketing genius" decided deceiving the customer by labeling "new GPU's" with a number name that suggests it's higher performance than it really is?

    Nvidia, that is so evil, so much worse than a *5% higher* performance AMD GPU "re-numbering.

    I thought Razer were a bunch of plonkers for trying to sell their RBP GTX 1080 "like it really was a GTX 1080", and then deliver a 1070 performing "1080" by using a 250w PSU.

    Now Nvidia have jumped on the plonkers band-wagon and joined Razer in deceiving their customers.

    Shame on Acer for having a hand in this too, $3000(!!!) for a 1070 performing laptop, when there are already plenty of *REAL* GTX 1070 / 1080 full performance laptops for well under $3000.

    At least Acer got it out under $4000, so if you want a Razer "1080" laptop (that performs like a 1070), this Triton 700 would be a $1000 cheaper choice, so I guess that is "progress" of a kind.
