Not too long ago, ASUS released the Zephyrus M which I'm assuming is a successor of sorts to the original Zephyrus. Just wondering if I'm understanding this correctly, this new Zephyrus M isn't using the Max-Q design NVIDIA GPU right? If so, how'd they manage to make it relatively thin still?

Zephyrus M doesn't have Max-Q variant GPU. 1060N or 1070N.

Yeah, was wondering on that end, how'd they manage to squeeze the GPU in that and maintain a really compact body. What does that N signify? hmm.gif

Thermal design engineering. Dunno why they can't design a good cooling for FX and GL line. N means Notebook

Thin gaming laptops will still throttle under heavy load

To be fair though, the GM (and to a lesser degree the TF GK5CN) throttles the least out of the current CFL-H thin lineup. Plus it has a 1070 so that's actually quite remarkable.
