    Max-Q

      Good spotting… max-q really handicaps the gfx performance

      •  

        If you trust userbenchmark (big grain of salt recommended), the mobile 2080 Max-Q is similar performance to a desktop 2060.
        Awful naming by Nvidia, but still pretty impressive for a fairly thin laptop

    If you're rich buy this as a lap warmer.

    I always wanted to buy the GS Stealth line to take it with me to a student dorm starting January next year.

    Though, I'm not sure if this is the right one to buy. I've been keeping an eye on the 10 series and they still don't go on sales.

    That being said, should I pull the trigger on this? Or should I wait to see if there are any other sales for this particular line? I should mention that I have less than 4 months to make a purchase before heading to the campus.

    Thin gaming laptops are throttle City - they never have adequate thermals.

    $3,000 for a 2080 max Q? Portability better mean a lot to you, you're paying for a $750 techfast desktop

      The problem with the thermals is basically the higher clocked, lower core count 1660 ti/ 2060's perform almost as well as the higher core count/ lower clocked 2070/2080 max q's. They're all running around the same power limits, and there's only so much performance you can get out of 80-90W.

      The Lenovo Y540 that goes for ~1400-1600 on sale is going to get 80% of the performance of this for half the price.

      The good thin/light gaming laptops don't really get too hot anymore, but there's not much point paying so much more for the higher end GPU configs when the cheaper ones are almost as fast.

    That Max Q is a deal breaker.
