    Just because you can fly with it doesn't mean it's flight worthy. I've had a couple double supply laptops and not sure how many fatties before that was a thing and as I fly to and from work I'm familiar with traveling with them. Do that and you've got a 10 to 12 lb laptop which combined with the power supplies will already put you over the 15lb limit you can often run into overseas before you even count the bag you're going to put them in. Back in the day my carry backpack usually ran 30 to 35 lbs and I once knocked over an old woman who was standing behind me in the security line just by turning around and clipping her with the backpack. I've been denied boarding in Yekaterinburg, Istanbul, Rome, Helsinki, that I can think of off hand because of those laptops. That's without even bringing up how little fun it is to drag around a heavy bag through 30 hour 12,000 step days.

    Nowadays it's just too much of a pain when you can get a similarly priced 17" laptop that will go under 10 lbs all in and play games just fine. I do exactly that: I've got an Aorus with a 1080 that seems me through pretty darn well and if I put the supply in my check (which I do on longer flights) I can also carry a 13" Spectre which I can actually use off a tray table unlike the 17 incher and which gets 6 legit hours of screen on before I plug it in to the portable power supply if needed. Most importantly it all fits under that 7 kilo limit along with some basic files and other small minutia. This is what I'm talking about when I say flight worthy, I'm thinking you're just saying it's possible and you're not wrong in that respect.

    My experience is nothing like yours. I usually throw the bricks in my checked bag or carry on and put the laptop in my personal item on under the seat. Never been denied boarding, never knocked anyone over, never run into weight restrictions; carrying around 12 pounds in a backpack is not strenuous.

    Since I spend a great deal of time in hotel rooms, it doesn't make much sense for me to build a desktop. Therefore, since a laptop will be my only machine I also dont want to compromise on processing power. Nothing with a single card, Max-q or not, is going to run the Witcher 3 in 4k at 60hz.

    If I only traveled occasionally, then maybe I'd consider a second machine in the form of a thin and light, or just get by on my Switch.

    Given the 2080ti high power draw and high thermal output at real desktop performance levels, coupled with a 9900K series CPU - even with a dual PSU of 800w+ I don't see how cooling hardware adequate for "competition" use will fit into a traditional laptop form.

    If we get any kind of 2080ti laptop it will likely be in name only and it won't be full performance vs desktop, at least a little faster than a 2080 200w laptop for a large uplift in price. Hardly worth it.

    Instead you could make a nice compact PC with sides sized 16:10 - with an integrated 300hz display in place of the tempered glass - venting out the other side / back / top.

    A form factor somewhere between a display with a PC grown out the back of it - thin with legs, and a PC with an integrated screen on it's side that can tilt and swivel for adjustment.

    That's where I would believe a "portable" PC of that super high performance might work.

    Maybe with a folding display so the chassis could fit on an airline tray table - with the screen folding out over the area to the left and right of the seat. That would be a mighty nice gaming PC to take on a long flight.

    Those Business-class or First-Class Suite's would make a nice place for one. :)

    Sounds like you fly in the States, things are different elsewhere. Your bag isn't 12 lbs either, the bag itself probably weighs 4 or more lbs and the numbers go up shockingly fast with just a little paperwork, phone chargers, a spare pair of socks, toothbrush etc. You're probably actually lugging around what, 20 lbs? More? Before you deny this try weighing your stuff, I think you'll be surprised. You're probably thinking 20 still isn't heavy and you're not wrong when you fly in the States and probably do at most 3 airports with a car at either and and a total travel time of less than 12 hours. That 20 lbs gets a lot heavier when you're on your 30th hour in the 5th airport. It isn't just carry either, checked bags are subject to much more scrutiny overseas and many will not allow an overweight bag, they simply will not accept it at any price.

    In any event none of that really matters in reference to my first post, the big slabs can be carried but they are in no way travel worthy which was my point from the beginning. I travel extensively, often, and all over the world, both work and pleasure. Like you do now I used to lug the most serious machine money could buy but that has become untenable and I never considered them travel worthy, I was just willing to pay the price. There is way more to travel overseas that relates but it belongs in another thread on another forum. As I said, I salute those willing to go there with the big slabs, there aren't many of us and I'm out due to technical difficulties but I still hope it becomes available for those willing to haul the freight.

    where do u get that 800W+ number from? o_O

    250W for 2080Ti + 150W for 9900K = 400W, plus rest of the system ure looking at maybe 450-500W. totally doable both from a thermal, as well as a power perspective with existing designs (P870)

    The ROG mothership with 200w 2080 GPU and 9900K should match the other top configurations.

    To perform further above all of the best 2080 200w+ laptops would need what, another 30%-40% more power and cooling to fully utilize a 2080ti?
    Maybe not 800w draw at 100% OC load, but having more than enough PSU power with enough headroom that you aren't cooking the PSU's - and where's the uber overclocker in you that you don't want an 800w PSU combo for maximum OC headroom? Besides, it's already been out and used with top laptop configurations as a single PSU - replacing the 2 PSU combo:

    Interestingly they keep it from burning your lap by putting the components in the lid behind the panel. Curious about the balance on this.

    You know a company is feeling confident when it has industry-standard benchmarking software pre-installed on its demo PCs. ASUS' new ProArt StudioBook One is the first to offer NVIDIA's class-leading Quadro RTX 6000 pro graphics. And it had Futuremark's 3D Mark 11 just sat there, practically begging us to try and see how fast thing could run. Turns out that it had a Performance score of 24,438, making this laptop faster than 98 percent of all computers it's ever benchmarked.

    And, it does all of that with a BGA CPU...
