    Would love to have a super thin laptop with 1050Ti. and Ryzen processor.

    It doesn't lower the details.
    Nvidia chips have a very good AUto-Clock feature, that is used to automatically clock sky high on Desktop GPU's, where the thermal headroom exists.
    These MAX-Q designs, are just set to not go above a certain power consumtion/Thermal threshold, so they will not boost anywhere near the Non-MAX-Q versions, but will still probably be within 10-20% of them in Performance.
    Basically, sell the same card with a different BIOS, for a slightly cheaper price (maybe).

    Depending on specific models the core speed is dropped 18% to even 40%, turbo slightly less. Performance drop is generally more like 25 - 30%.

    I'm not sure what it's called, but Nvidia does have a tech that lowers the Resolution in certain parts of the screen, or the whole screen, to keep the frame rate up, and that will lose details, yes.
    Thats not the Max-Q though ;)
