NVIDIA Max-Q Technologies

With NVIDIA GeForce RTX, you can get blazing-fast laptops that are also thin, quiet, and have amazing battery life. This is possible thanks to NVIDIA Max-Q, an advanced suite of AI-powered technologies that optimize your laptop’s performance, power, and acoustics for peak efficiency.

Fifth-Gen Max-Q Technologies

Now optimized for laptops and built into Max-Q technologies, improving performance up to 4X and acoustics and battery life by up to 2X.

High Efficiency On-Chip Memory
Redesigned high-speed memory vastly improves power efficiency with double the bandwidth, over 10X the capacity, and improved clock gating.

Ultra-Low Voltage GDDR6
Boosts GPU efficiency with the lowest voltage graphics memory ever. 

Tri-Speed Memory Control
Enables the GPU to switch to new, lower power memory states dynamically.

What Is Max-Q?

Max-Qs CPU Optimizer

CPU Optimizer

CPU power efficiency is critical for maximizing performance, and on laptops, power is shared between the CPU and GPU. Max-Q’s CPU Optimizer optimizes this power using a low-level framework, letting the GPU driver optimize next-gen CPUs’ performance, temperature, and power. 

Pairing this new framework with CPU optimizations like deep power states, improved work dispatch, and driver thread synchronization significantly improves CPU efficiency—and the power saved is transferred to the GPU, giving it more performance.

Rapid Core Scaling

Rapid Core Scaling

Developed specifically for creators and students who rely on compute-heavy apps like Adobe Premiere, Blender, or Matlab, Rapid Core Scaling allows the GPU to sense the real-time demands of the applications and use only the cores it needs, rather than all of them at once. This optimization frees up power to run active cores at higher frequencies, delivering up to three times more performance for intensive creative work.

Battery Boost 2.0

Battery Boost

Battery Boost has been totally re-architected and now allows AI to control the whole platform, finding the optimal GPU and CPU power usage, battery discharge, image quality, and frame rates—and all in real time. The result? Excellent playability on battery power with up to 70% more battery life.

G-Sync Displays

Advanced Optimus

Advanced Optimus automatically switches between your GeForce GPU and integrated graphics to drive your system’s display. This delivers maximum performance and optimal battery life while reducing system latency. Advanced Optimus also enables all the benefits of G-SYNC displays for the smoothest, tear-free, desktop-quality gameplay—right on your laptop.

AI Powered Dynamic Boost

Dynamic Boost

AI-powered Dynamic Boost now automatically optimizes power between the GPU, GPU memory, and CPU for more performance. The AI networks in Dynamic Boost manage power on a per-frame basis, so your laptop is constantly optimizing for maximum performance while you’re gaming and creating.



WhisperMode has been re-engineered from the ground up and built into your laptop at a system level, delivering a new level of acoustic control for gaming laptops. Simply pick your desired acoustic level, and WhisperMode newest AI-powered algorithms manage the CPU, GPU, system temperatures, and fan speeds to deliver excellent acoustics and the best possible performance.

Resizable BAR

Resizable BAR

Resizable BAR is an advanced PCI Express feature that enables the CPU to access the entire GPU frame buffer at once, improving performance in many games.
