I'd like to know if you can undervolt the cpu... Intel has xtu to undervolt and its quite easy and there's quite a bit of headroom to undervolt.. I can get down to a - 0.135 undervolt on my cpu.

It is promising to say the least, can't wait for a proper laptop with that CPU to see what it can do. (And this is with 3200mhz ram so I cant wait for a laptop with 3600mhz and fclck at 1800mhz)

built like an alienware. almost to the point where I wonder if the same plant churns them out.

Add me on Steam, same name

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
Best R0ach Quote of all time : TLDR: Haswell might be the last legit gaming platform unless mice get their own non-USB interface on some newer architecture.

Its the general Asus vibe with these tuf laptops, I tend to avoid them like the plague since they started appearing.

idk man. I would have to do a ton of shopping before buying an LED blinged desktop replacement. though I suppose the gamer tier is likely the only reliable way to get proper underclocking control, so you aren't thermal throttling into oblivion 24/7.

i bet its louder than my 40 fan Caselabs STH10.

The last year has been kinda great for most "Gaming" laptops, my brother's Y540 with an undervolt + locking the cpu at 3.8 and an OC on the 1660ti lets him game at a max temp of 78 on the cpu and 74 on the gpu and being around 5% slower than the fastest 1660ti laptop.
and my (Already sold) MSI Ge75 after so many hours of tweaking and fixing it up + Liquid metal, I was able to run that 9750 at 4ghz all the time, ram at 3470 and the 2070 at between 1850-1980 with temps hovering around 85-90 for the CPU and 80-85 on the GPU. no throttling and it's generally acceptable for laptops to run at those temps but it sounded like a jet most of the time.


For someone who is welling to go the extra mile you can actually have a great experience with a lot of laptops.

Good APU but the rest is really meh so far, on top of that ASUS and I'm not sure I ever want to buy anything ASUS again after having to deal with their service centers and terrible warranty services. Had ASUS laptop, it still "works", built solid (survived over a decade and it has near zero flex under keyboard, something that I found really annoying and common on majority of newer laptops) except the plastic dries up and cracks around hinges/stress points as it seems to even on other newer laptops to some degree.

These newer CPUs are beasts especially from AMD but it takes more than a good chip to make a good value and good quality laptop.

The temperatures and power draw is really a desktop PC territory. Long gone seem the days of laptops like this (price range and hardware level/tier) needing only 60-90W power brick. Now they are cranking out double that, nice performance but that power consumption for a laptop is high.
Numeric pad on a laptop? Are you kidding me? Don't use that even on desktop, why would I want that on a smaller keyboard on a laptop, pls, remove that nonsense. My old laptop didn't have it either and it's the same 15.6" size.

There will sure be some decent laptop with AMD's 4000 mobile series but this is not it.
Would also forgo the dGPU and get a much better display. Especially when ASUS used to have those Zen 13" 4k touchscreen laptops, solid metal construction too, that's a big difference to this poor quality 1080p no touch.

Yeah I just don't see how 8 cores and 16 threads in a laptop is keeping up anymore. Unless it's at least 64c/128t then it's not worth the silicon it's made of these days.

Only kidding. Wonder if the current crisis will affect availability and prices a whole lot. At the right price I could be tempted into buying one of these instead of going HEDT for my next upgrade.

As far as gaming laptops go - Had my 2018 model Dell G3 with the i7-7700HQ (Really an i5-8300H, but nobody seems to know what that is or that it's just a rebranded i7) and a 4gb 1050 with the liquid metal mod and additional air ventilation, and it performed surprisingly well for weighing 5 pounds while being fairly mobile. Did the throttlestop undervolt & set it to all core 4.0GHz and it flew through just about everything I asked of it. TBH the 1050 was the weakest link there. And even now you can buy a new laptop with better performance than this for around $500. Step up to $750 and performance takes a nice jump and you can get yourself a 6 core i7.
