?

When do you believe Volta will be officially announced?

  1. 1H 2017 - Around GTC '17, at the end of May.

    6.7%
  2. 2H 2017 - Around the end of Summer or early Fall 2017.

    21.8%
  3. 1H 2018 - Early 2018, probably Q1 (Jan., Feb., or Mar.)

    34.5%
  4. I believe there will be another iteration of Pascal for 2017.

    21.0%
  5. I don't care to answer or speculate.

    19.3%
  6. I don't know.

    6.7%
  7. None of the above. I'll post below.

    I wouldn't mind max q if they went all the way up the gpu line with it. What I mean is I would love to be able to say I have a laptop with a gtx 1080 ti max q or even a gtx 1080 titan max q. Maybe that's what will come next becore Volta release. Nvidia said they had some awesome tech coming down the pipeline before the end of the year. And Volta isn't coming until 2018 so there must be some new gpus coming out that are still Pascal maybe?? I think a more powerful max q card that can hit 120fps on AAA games while running cooler and more efficiently would be a dream. Imagine a gtx 1080 ti max Q. That would be pretty cool but not very likely.

    I'm pretty sure that's how Max Q is marketed to kids. People want to "say" they've got a 108**"in their laptop to impress their friends how thin it is.

    Fair point. No use in having 3584 shader cores if they all run at like 700 MHz...

    Why not gimp a bit on TDP, but not as hard as Max-Qrippled and call it what it is → 1080TI ? What a nice name... 1080Ti Max-Q LOL

    Just like SLI, I think the Max-Q "treatment" should be "allowed" in laptops only for the 1080ti, for a GPU that otherwise wouldn't fit at full power.

    The 1080 can be made to run full power in laptops already, as could the 1070 / 1060, so those are complete rip-off's.

    A 1080ti trimmed out to fit in the best cooling and power large frame laptop in a vendor line would be welcome if it gave 30% more performance than their next down in their line.

    But, I wouldn't call it Max-Q, I'd call it a 1080ti. :)

    If Nvidia and the OEMs together killed (used same Max-Qrippled treatment) for the 1080Ti's TDP in same way as they did with 1080 (up to 200w) → 1080Max-Qrippled (110w). Aka 81% lower allowed TDP for a new Mobile 1080Ti. I would call new Mobile 1080Ti for destroyed7very crippled chips. Worse than ever!! Then call it 108TI or 1080Ti Max-Q wouldn't matter.

    That's why I said I wouldn't make a 1080ti Max-Q Design laptop:

    "A 1080ti trimmed out to fit in the best cooling and power large frame laptop in a vendor line would be welcome if it gave 30% more performance than their next down in their line.

    But, I wouldn't call it Max-Q, I'd call it a 1080ti."

    A 1080ti trimmed out to fit 250w TDP might be just right :)

    They could go the gtx1070 way (more shades the the original) and use the full gp102 with 3840 shades active and lower clocks for better efficiency. The could make this happen with a tdp of 250w (?). Or even 200w I guess. The top vendors could make it work in a proper chassis.
    They could call it whatever they want. Even apache helicopter as long as it gave the full potential.
