    This must be what Nvidia means by "Max-Q" :)

    Max-Q means the "Maximum Quantity of Profit" that can be extracted from customers. :hi:
    "Total economic profit is represented by the area of the rectangle PABC. The optimum quantity (Q) is the same as the optimum quantity in the first diagram."
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Profit_maximization
    Marginal revenue–marginal cost perspective
    [​IMG]
    Profit maximization using the marginal approach
    An equivalent perspective relies on the relationship that, for each unit sold, marginal profit (Mπ) equals marginal revenue (MR) minus marginal cost (MC). Then, if marginal revenue is greater than marginal cost at some level of output, marginal profit is positive and thus a greater quantity should be produced, and if marginal revenue is less than marginal cost, marginal profit is negative and a lesser quantity should be produced.

    At the output level at which marginal revenue equals marginal cost, marginal profit is zero and this quantity is the one that maximizes profit.[1] Since total profit increases when marginal profit is positive and total profit decreases when marginal profit is negative, it must reach a maximum where marginal profit is zero—or where marginal cost equals marginal revenue—and where lower or higher output levels give lower profit levels.

    In calculus terms, the correct intersection of MC and MR will occur when:
    [​IMG]
    The intersection of MR and MC is shown in the next diagram as point A. If the industry is perfectly competitive (as is assumed in the diagram), the firm faces a demand curve (D) that is identical to its marginal revenue curve (MR), and this is a horizontal line at a price determined by industry supply and demand.

    Average total costs are represented by curve ATC.

    Total economic profit is represented by the area of the rectangle PABC. The optimum quantity (Q) is the same as the optimum quantity in the first diagram.

    If the firm is operating in a non-competitive market, changes would have to be made to the diagrams. For example, the marginal revenue curve would have a negative gradient, due to the overall market demand curve. In a competitive environment, more complicated profit maximization solutions involve the use of game theory."

    Also confused at why not just going with a 1070 instead of the "Max-Q" 1080 - is there something that actually benefits from having the latter over the former? Doesn't seem like much of a performance gap at all.

    More money per pound in the pockets of the supply, vendor, and sales channel's :D

    It's harder to sell 1070 for $3K, but then again, that hasn't stopped Razer Blade Pro at $4K.

    Actually, it is a decent idea, but they are marketing it wrong.

    A GTX 1080 with a throttled TDP is better than an equivalently performing GTX 1070 in productivity software where clocks don't matter as much. What it has is 25% more pipelines and 20% more memory speed than the 1070. These should be sold in workstation laptops instead of the horrendously expensive Quadro scam chips.

    TDLR
    A GTX 1080 Max-Q should outperform a Quadro P5000 (slightly lower clocked GTX 1070) in productivity software (and cost 50% less)

    Touchpad above the keyboard is pure bollocks.

    i actually like the touchpad above the key area. i mostly use the mouse anyway. i wish more laptops use this approach to maximize cooling area and instead of throttling all over.

    what i dont get the 1 inch bezels, why not make the laptop more space efficient and thicker if need be.

    I would love xps 15 dimensions 15.6" laptop with a 1070/80 in it - even if it was in inch thick

    Did they say anything about a 17'' triton?
