Not sure about PnP being a dying art. Check out how crowded GenCon is every year.

Hopefully it's still as quiet as the previous model was touted to be. IMO the fan noise is the bane of every gaming laptop's existence, and I had heard they did a damn good job in that regard. I was interested in looking into that line when I finally get around to upgrading my beast if they were still making it.Reply

Absolutely. The 40 dBA target for Max-Q is a massive part of the appeal - it was especially impressive with the original Zephyrus.


Hopefully the latest model will match the thermals of the original model despite the full-fat GPU. Alongside the lower price, it could be a top contender in 2018 if it all works out.

The (almost) silent gaming PC buildThe (almost) silent gaming PC build

I'd love to do something like this but it takes up a little too much space. What was the ambient temperature in the room when these CPU/GPU temps were recorded.

I use the quietest gaming laptops I can find right now, but they are still pretty loud. I'd love to do something like have one of these next to the recliner and have cables running to a "laptop style monitor/keyboard" that just has a little weight in the base to keep it sitting upright. Just run power + hdmi + USB-C to it. I could continue to relax in my comfy chair gaming laptop style while having all that silent power next to the chair. I do realize this is an extremely edge-case scenario and I'd probably have to cobble that together custom myself.

interested to know how loud those fans were..Reply

Have to say when I tried it at CES, running a relatively graphically intense VR game (Echo Arena) the noise wasn't noticeable.


One of the reasons it's such a reassuringly weighty box is the level of cooling Intel have jammed inside. It's an overclockable chip too, so it's been designed with a fair chunk of thermal headroom built in.

Hopefully the money and time spent on these court shenanigans don't end up causing us to not get ANY new Star Control games.Reply
Tannhauser Avatar

I think that's the likely outcome, at this point. F&P's game is pretty much vaporware, and court problems aren't known to foster creativity. As for Origins, Stardock may well lose the rights to the Star Control brand, meaning no Star Control games in the foreseeable future.

They had to know this was going to be discovered, and also they had to know there would be a backlash. Bad decision.Reply

People did complain it got picked up by AV software, but they claimed it was a "false positive"
