According to recent rumors, NVIDIA is set to expand Max-Q series with new SKUs.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (Ti) Max-Q
The new, yet unannounced, Max-Q graphics card has been spotted in Linux driver changelog. The GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q would be the last GTX 10 series card to be included in more power efficient (and slightly slower) variants known as Max-Q.
It seems that the new card is aiming directly at recently announced RX Vega M GL integrated into Intel EMIB. The faster variant of this solution (GH) is ‘officially’ offering slightly better performance than GTX 1060 Max-Q, so the GTX 1050 Max-Q is more likely to compete with RX Vega GL with 20 CUs.
Guys over at NotebookCheck have already made some assumptions regarding actual clock speeds. NVIDIA is probably not going to make any official announcements regarding new SKUs, so keep your eyes on GeForce website for more details.
