Announced in the ongoing Computex 2017 in Taiwan, the Max-Q design approach is focused on precision engineering, from the placement of GPU’s, thermal components and other electrical innards to ensure a slicker profile, and performance efficiency. This, according to CEO Jen-Hsun Huang, will help OEM’s build laptops three times thinner with up to three times more power but is also more quiet. Taiwan tech giant ASUS gets a first jab at showcasing the Max-Q design with their gaming laptop called Zephyrus (named after a Greek god).
