    Hi! I think we should make a guide about TDP (Thermal Design Power) of the GPUs. :)

    I'm watching so many people asking for thin and light laptops with a powerfull hardware (gtx1070/gtx1080) but they don't know consequences for that. A powerful gpu needs a good cooling system and there isn't enough space for it in a thin laptop. Thermal issues are really important for a thin laptop with a powerful hardware and thermal throttling can easily increase with a drop in performances.

    What are values for each Nvidia / Amd gpu? where can I find right values for that?

    heatsink, heatpipes and fan.

    Ask someone to dump their vbios then view it using @Coolane tool and you'll see the exact TDP value.


    Most brands use 115w 1070/150w 1080 for standard. Some use higher like MSi GT series, Clevo, etc...

    Only cowards use Max-Q

    Prema knows a lot more than I do about these things. I would take his word if he gives it.
