    Hi,

    I am looking to get the new max q version with GTX 1060 but it's so confusing to find. The model numbers don't make sense to me.

    Is there a max q version with GTX 1060? Ideally with 32gb memory and 4K display if possible, if not then 1080p is ok.

    Any ideas?


    Thanks in advance :)

    I would call XoticPC. Their customer service is great and they should be able to help you.

    I don't believe there is a max-q 1060, they just released the 1070 max-q here recently.

    The primary difference is the max-q is designed to stop pushing at that peak performance per watt in the bell curve vs just the full performance of the card. That makes them a little slower, but much less power hungry. Because of the performance loss, if you were going to get a 1060 max-q, you might as well just get a 1050ti instead.

    There is actually. I was surprised myself. The new Dell 7577 has a MaxQ 1060. Just in case you haven't seen this..http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/cty/pdp/spd/inspiron-15-7577-laptop?~ck=mn
