On the Computex demo at any rate, CEO Jen-Hsun Huang showed how he played with his laptop Project Cars 2 , which is 60 percent faster than the PS4 Pro.
According to Nvidia, the new laptops are not only designed to be thin and lightweight, “from the chip, the drivers, to the thermal and electrical components,” but also the software regulates the working load between the CPU and GPU to optimize energy consumption and heat development , A whisper mode is also designed to reduce the performance on demand and thereby allow the laptop to work cooler and more energy-saving.
