    xbsx is a 2080 basically but its running at 4k
    my target is 1080p so 1/4th of 4k
    2080s power divided by 4 = 1060


    that is in a perfect world..lol

    i guess and thats all we can do that in 2 years you will need a 2070 for 1080p

    There are so many types of games to just rule out a 1050ti for 1080p is crazy, sure new massive games it will chug at unrealistic settings and you're missing out on the rt/dlss but that's about it. If you're not a huge gamer you may have missed tons of awesome games over the years that the 1050ti is perfectly capable of playing. There are people still playing FHD on 680m's.

    honestly the 1050 ti is enough but not for all games cyberpunk as an example, but honestly only crappy ports will not be playable

    I have very similar specs to you and likely the same shared gpu/cpu heat pipes. Running an undervolt on throttlestop is a must imo. I also repaste and clean out the vents on a regular basis. I dont really play e-sports titles, so cpu isnt as important to me in gaming and disable turbo boost in throttlestop to give my gpu more thermal leeway. I also play in 900p in the more gfx intensive games like warhammer 2 and watch dogs 2, and really hardly notice much difference from 1080p. I also set a gpu undervolt, although I hardly use it.

    Especially if you use sharpening in nvidia control panel 900p is not that bad, I even use it for the same reasons in some games like lower temps, more fps etc

    also nvidia has something called geforce now and its just like gaming natively witlh a touch of input lag so not good for cs go but third person its the way to go

    For me the great advantage of laptops in gaming is the screen size. It makes little to no sense increasing resolution beyond 1080p in a 15 or 17 inch screen. What's more important imo, is getting a screen that can scale well at lower resolutions. And as a 51 yr old gamer, I'm kinda past chasing the newest and best hardware out there. There are still many games I can enjoy on my system even if I can't play them at ultra.

    Cp77 if you drop the resolution and certain settings it will play, game is great looking at low/med mix, I played a good chunk on the 1650m at 900p/50fps and it still looked awesome. Played RDR2 on the performance preset and it looked amazing at 45fps avg. So a 1050ti you'd just drop settings even more and not notice the lower quality that much. It's about a 400$ used laptop so not too costly either.
