    A bit too late, with new nvidia cards everyone will wait for 3070 and 3060 versions.

    Considering the listed power draw on 30xx series desktop cards it might be a while before we see a card worth replacing the 20xx series...

    Yes, this is a gaming laptop so the professionals in the crosshairs are eSports pros. Very, very cool device.

    You randomly quoted a section of article, made a compliment, and forgot to actually say anything of value.

    Quite suspicious.

    Also I think this laptop is as generic and poor value as all the rest of the gaming style laptops.

    These thin machines REALLY should focus on cooling, fan noise... which should improve performance. Stop it with the throttling and over heating!!

    Why do the *hard* thing (improve cooling in unrealistic chassis) when you can do the *easy* thing (use more powerful, hotter processors) and benefit from greater marketing (perf 15% up!!! *for one second*)
