It's not max-Q and there is no fixed version like Max-Q. The RTX 3060 can boost upto 100W which is pretty close to the maximum 120W supported by nVidia. Please check at least before providing these information.

Several other threads I saw stated max q. Nvidia specifically took away that moniker I guess to throw off the public. This doesn't run at the full wattage so technically thats a max q, right? 120w would be max p?

I think you checked the other thread where I have posed the AMD version of Omen. Let me clear this out here. The RTX 3070 version is a lowered powered version whereas the RTX 3060 is almost close to its max power limit.
The Chassis in Omen 15 can be configured for 100W TDP GPU and configured 85W-90W + 10/15W with Dynamic Boost. Now for RTX 3070, it can go up to 140W. So, the 100W is pretty low for it. On the other hand, the max Nvidia provided TDP for RTX 3060 120W (130W with Dynamic Boost) and 100W is pretty close to its maximum level. Also, since RTX 3060 is not as powerful as RTX 3070, TDP increase to max vs medium does not increase performance that much and the difference between a 85/90W and 120/130W RTX 3060 is maximum 10% faster.

Thank you for the information. So in your opinion is it worth it to get the 3070 version over the 3060?

No, not at all and I meant the exact opposite. Since the RTX 3060 here is very close to its maximum TDP, it will perform almost close to its max potential. On the other hand, since the RTX 3070 is pretty lower, while it will perform definitely better than the same wattage RTX 3060, the improvements will be pretty minimal and way low compared to a 125W-140W RTX 3070.
Rather than all tech jargons, let me make it very simple for you for the 3000 series or any series cards. When you are using same architecture and same manufacturing node (for 3000 series, it is Ampere and 8nm Samsung node), more powerful the GPU is, more performance it will give with increased TDP.
Among RTX 3060 and RTX 3070 mobile GPUs, RTX 3070 is definitely more powerful as it has more number of CUDA and RTX cores. For flexing its full power, RTX 3060 needs around 110-120W power whereas RTX 3070 needs almost 130-140W power.
At 90W TDP, RTX 3060 is already very close to its max TDP limit and it's performance will be near to its max limit. But at the same 90W TDP, RTX 3070 is way beyond its max performing TDP requirement and the performance, while definitely will be slightly ahead of RTX 3060 at 90W, it will be pretty minimal and won't justify the extra cost. Since it is a more powerful GPU, it needs a lot more power to reach its full potential.
If you need a RTX 3070 Laptop, I will strongly suggest to wait for Legion 5 series (5 and 5 Pro). All the test results have shown that it can hit 140W to the RTX 3070 during gaming load.

Too bad the 5% coupon code doesn't work on the Ryzen model, which is probably a better value
