TDP or Total Graphics Power, is how much power your GPU can use inside of the gaming laptop all on-the-fly. Acer's new BIOSes are being made available with increased TGPs for the Nitro 5, Helios 300, Triton 300, and the Triton 300 SE gaming laptops.

Acer isn't pushing huge power increases across every single GPU and gaming laptop, with TGP increases of between 5W and 30W. The 30W increase isn't going into the GeForce RTX 3080, but rather the GeForce RTX 3060-based gaming laptop from Acer.

Marcel Behm, Senior Business Manager Acer Germany explained (through machine translation): "Our claim to gaming hardware is to offer a balance between the best possible CPU and GPU performance, volume and durability. Accordingly, we are pleased to be able to offer buyers and many of our existing customers improved graphics performance with the BIOS update".
