    Notice the core count is similar to polaris and VRAM too.

    Interesting. Now the real question is, when can we expect a 1070ti Max-Q? :p

    Rather ask when we should expect... 1030Ti-1050Ti-1060Ti-1070Ti and FINALLY 1080Ti for the normal graphics. Then the exactly same model range, but for the Max-Qrippled versions:D Yeah, You must have your tongue straight in your mouth when you buy new hardware, LOL

    An gtx1080ti Max-Q could actually be a not so bad ideia. It's not really feasible to put a 300w chip in a laptop...

    Max-Q has some other Design Features that we wouldn't want, limiting the TDP down so low as to reduce performance is one, the 40dba noise limit being another, and of course paying Nvidia for the use of Max-Q would be another :)

    A 1080ti adjusted to fit the maximum cooling TDP of 200w-250w would be great, but reducing into the 110w Max-Q range would be too much of a reduction.

    1080Ti shouldn' be re'named and crippled for fitting in an Jokebook. On top pay ++premium price:nah:

    Oh it's a bad idea, my friend.

    Last time a massive GPU that had no business being shoved into laptops was forced upon us, we ended up with the GTX 480M. Those were dark days.

    You also have to just look at the prices of the laptops holding GTX 1080 Max-Qs, to realize that 1080 Ti Max-Q laptops would start near $4k.
