  • so a 3060 is basically a 2070 super like performance?

  • That's…surprisingly cheap for a RTX3000 laptop.

    GLHF to all the sellers who still have old RTX2060 stock and are still selling them for 1800.

    • That's what I thought. Those older gen laptops are going to drop a fair bit and it's going to pop up quite frequently on OzB methinks.

  • Not sure how is the performance of 3060 in a laptop?
    Anyone can advise?

  • I have concerns on this. It must be a 1660 it talks about gtx cards in the info section and the 2060 of the same brand are above $2000 at other shops. I hope it’s real but it just looks like a typo. Any gigabyte laptop experts about?

  • I had no idea Intel made 6 core i5 laptops. How freaking confusing is their lineup. I5's are 4 core, except on desktops, but also except the i5 10500H which is 6. i7s are either 8, 6, or 4 cores. The i5-10500H is a higher tier part than the i7-11375H (wtf is even that name)?

    • yes very confusing, its almost criminal!

      I bought a I7 10th gen 10510u and thought it was top of the range. But further researching it is just a 6th gen rebadge i5

    • I have read that a 6 core processor is really an 8 core processor that was “binned” because because some cores weren’t up to scratch. And so on. i7 to i5. Saves waste. I’m not an expert, just found it interesting.

      • On desktop Intel has two dies, a 6 core die and a 10 core die. i7 and i9's are all made from the 10 core die with 2 cores disabled if it's an i7. The i5's and i3's use the 6 core die, with the exception of the 10600k which uses the 10 core die with 6 cores disabled.

    • The i5 branding used to be no hyoerthreading but that was changed two generations ago iirc after AMD introduced zen 2

  • Almost tempted to bite at this deal. The core i5 is the only thing stopping me.

  • Doesn't seem Affordable to me

  • thermal throttle??

    • My thoughts exactly. Not to mention power throttling…

      • gotta wait for a youtuber to make the mistake before i buy

        • Not to mention power throttling… These days gfx cards a need quite a few things to go right just to hit it's name plate potential. This like thermals and power are never guaranteed.

  • Wait for reviews. Rumours are Nvidia have gone back to the days where the mobile versions of cards perform no where near the performance of the same desktop versions. Ampere made very minimal power efficiency improvements over Turing.

  • Reminds me of my painful RMA with Gigabyte Australia.

  • With absolutely no benchmarks, on face value alone this looks like an amazing price.

    But … Need benchmarks.

    Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060: The RTX 3060 is the most affordable of Nvidia’s new laptop lineup, promising high-quality 1080p gaming at up to 90 frames per second in notebooks that start at just $999. Nvidia claims that RTX 3060 laptops are 1.3 times more powerful than the new PlayStation 5

    Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070: Laptops with the more powerful RTX 3070 will start at $1,299 and are built to deliver smooth 90-frame-per-second gameplay at a higher 1440p resolution. Nvidia says RTX 3070 laptops will outperform those packing an RTX 2070 by 50%.

    Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080: The most powerful member of Nvidia’s new laptop family, the RTX 3080 will allow gaming laptops to pump out more than 100 frames per second at 1440p. RTX 3080 laptops will be true high-end powerhouses for serious gamers and will start at a pricey $1,999.

  • 3060 mobile will be a cut down version of the desktop version. Less RTX cores, not just lower clocks.

  • Good price, especially if it's real. I too am worried about the mention of Turing architecture, the 3060m is definitely Ampere.
    Those interested in performance, there's a very short write up here, has specs and some general benchmarks.
    It's ugly as sin though, just saying.

  • What's the distinction now between desktop and mobile parts naming-wise? Is the GPU here what might have been labelled a "3060M", or a full fat desktop part? I see reference out there to "3060 Mobile" and "3060 Laptop" to distinguish mobile parts, while the specs here just say 3060. Similar for the other day's MSI GP66 laptop deal which just says "RTX 3070". I assume they're mobile but the naming suggests otherwise.

  • These are still all made in Taiwan?

    • According to China they're made in China

      • Taiwan is China as is Hong Kong, even though certain people on few different occasions made attempts to steal the territories, oh well, back to the drawing board LOL!

        Laptop seems decent.

      • Taiwan is China. So it is made in Republic of China.

      • Can we not make this so political? It is almost like casual bullying.

        I ask this question because these companies tend to make the higher quality products in Taiwan and they tend to be better in quality. (Although I have no data to back up these but I thought it is a valid point of consideration.)

        (Although my preference of Clevo vs tongfang is totally political haha.)

    • I doubt it as I bought their laptop previously and it's broken several times within its default warranty. Their customer service in Australia is run by (Australian) Chinese given that the Chinese family name they use and the accent they sound.

  • Looks awfully like a clevo or tongfang… sure I have seen that chassis before. Either way sub $2000 at launch for a 3060 is likely the best price for some time. Still no idea on performance though but obviously faster than a 2060 which cost similar… infact PC case gear have the same laptop with i7+1660ti for the same price on a sale… https://www.pccasegear.com/products/50249/gigabyte-aorus-5-c...

  • What is the weight on this? If any one knows please?

  • Not sure what's going on here but the 3060 is yet to be released and when it is released it will have 12gb of vram? The 3060ti has 8gb of vram?
    Nvidia did give the ok for board partners to rerelease the RTX2060 to help with the backlog.

  • The tdp on the desktop 3060 is higher than the tdp of the 2060ti, that ~15w makes little difference on a desktop. But on a laptop that might mean overheating.

    So they will have to underclock the 3060 mobile version more, means the performance of the mobile version will be closer to that of the last gen, compared to desktop

  • Any reviews for this? How does this have 100 upvotes and no reviews - I can't find any on the web.

    How's it compare to this deal: [eBay Plus] Dell G5 15 SE Laptop AMD Ryzen 7 4800H 16GB 512GB SSD RX 5600M 120hz $1442.22 Delivered @ Dell eBay
