    It sure does! But it’s only providing performance similar to a cool running 7820HK with LM and a fat overclock.

    Still it’s nice to see performance like this in an average i7 8th gen laptop.

    The 8750H is a great cpu. Keep it cool, and there blazing fast!

    At $2999 that's pretty expensive, but it's a very nice laptop. Congratulations!! :)

    BB has a 17.3" 8th gen 8750H 1070 model for only $1649...which after tax is about $1475 cheaper...

    Alienware - 17.3" Laptop - Intel Core i7 - 16GB Memory - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 - 256GB Solid State Drive + 1TB Hard Drive - Black
    Model: AW17R5-7811BLK-PUSSKU: 6228319

    Of course the 1070 is about 25% slower, but for gaming IDK how much better the experience will be...but probably not $1475 worse. :)

    The next large sum of money I invest, that will have anything to do with a laptop is a BIG G-Sync ultra-wide monitor.

    This is a great example. I’m pretty funny about an operating system running at full potential. My windows 10 is only about 2 months old, since I installed it clean. I’m considering reinstalling again already..

    I’ve probably reinstalled windows it least 4 times, in the 5 months I’ve owned my laptop.

    I’m very picky over consistency in performance.

    My boot time use to be 5.8 seconds. Now I’m at 7.5 to 7.9 seconds. I’m missing storage space on my m.2, that I cannot seem to recover? This happens from time to time.

    So best solution? Clean install! Then it’s fast for another month or 2 at least, and you got all your 512GB of OS space back. The rate That I fill my M.2 SSD, then delete, and uninstall programs.. it gets sluggish fast! Uninstall programs, clean old files, defrag, dig through files for missing GB’s of storage space then rinse repeat lol
