  • NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Max-Q (6GB) GDDR6 Graphics Card w/ ROG Boost up to 1382MHz at 60W (80W with Dynamic Boost) So, not the fastest GPU, and not a full-RTX3060, but a Max-Q version (understandable in a laptop.) Couple that with a Ryzen 9, and it will throttle the GPU a lot to keep cool (but still sound like a jet engine taking off.) Since it's a QHD screen (2560x1440) 6 GB of VRAM might not be adequate for some games and the GPU may struggle with higher graphics settings. You may need to run it at FHD. Still, it's a nice gaming laptop, and a great Creator laptop.
