Acer improves the performance of its GeForce RTX 30 graphics cards Nitro 5, Helios 300 and Triton 300 (SE) gaming laptops. This new move by Acer will be made with a firmware update that regulates the power consumption of the display cards depending on the model. The company will have this innovation installed directly on some unreleased laptops. On existing computers, it will be implemented through an update.
Total Graphics Power, or TGP, can be characterized as a way to limit a GPU’s power to a certain level so that it can adapt to its use case. TGP can be adjusted amicably using technologies such as NVIDIA Dynamic Boost and AMD Smart Shift, which transfer unused CPU power consumption in laptops and other mobile systems to the GPU, allowing it to reach much higher frequencies. When the frequency of a GPU is increased, the overall power output of the GPU increases. In parallel with this, the GPU temperature also rises. Laptop cooling systems, on the other hand, can only handle a limited amount of heat. Here are the technologies mentioned by AMD and NVIDIA that cause the CPU to reduce heat output and offer the GPU more room for boost and power output.
Acer states that more performance can be achieved by raising the Total Graphics Power (TGP) of its RTX 30 series mobile chips in a few gaming laptops that potentially need higher clock speeds and more performance. TGP values will be increased as much as the heat value that the cooling system of the model in question can handle. In order to do this, a firmware update will be released for existing models.
Marcel Behm, Acer’s Senior Business Manager, said: “Our commitment to gaming hardware is to offer the best possible CPU and GPU performance, a balance between volume and endurance. In my opinion, we are mudollar with the BIOS update for being able to offer improved graphics performance to both interested buyers and many of our existing customers.” Acer’s change we’re talking about will apply to the yellow variants of the Predator Helios 300, Triton 300, Triton 300 SE and Nitro 5. The news on ComputerBase also includes a list of models.
