    Hi all,

    I have been looking at the new features of the nvidia SUPER refresh and I can't help but wonder if this "Dynamic Boost" that comes with the new Max-Q package wasn't heavily inspired by the well-loved Eluktroboost we see on Eluktronics laptops. I ask because this is also a hardware implemented solution like Eluktroboost and it's down to OEM to choose to implement it.

    Any thoughts? Cheers.

    The concept goes back a long ways. Even Intel and AMD got in on the game together with Kaby Lake G (Intel X86 + AMD GPU + HBM) a while back, allowing for bidirectional power allocation and sharing. In practice, this ended up being just like the setup it replaced, in practice: Intel CPU gets all the power, dGPU can inhale fumes.

    Maybe 3rd, 4th? time is the charm! :)

    I would say almost but not quite there yet. From the slides, it only increases a max Q GPU by 15W. Assuming this is a 80W version, that only boosts it to 95W. Eluktroboost has it go all the way to max P territory (115W)

    Better than nothing I’d say. It would be nice to see some 90w GPUs get this option so we’d get 105w. Though some manufacturers like Razer were pushing 100w on their Blade Pro so we may see some Max-P like laptops in a reasonable amount of time.

    Definately better than nothing. More efficient usage of power means more FPS for us :)
