    From the ACER forums

    Temperatures after one hour of Tomb Raider, max. settings, no undervolting:

    "I played Tomb Raider a bit longer now. 50 minutes with fan on auto and 30 minutes on max. The temperature of the CPU at auto never went above 78 centigrade. At max it went down to well below 60. The GPU stayed at auto always around 70 and at max down to about 51 centigrade. All in all I am very satisfied."

    This is nice, but what I would like to know is the CPU and GPU frequencies compared to their desktop counterparts. How much did Acer lower the frequencies with a TDP limit ?

    CPU base clock appears the same, but if boost clock equals "peak speed" then it is tuned down to about 3.4 :-/ From the forums:

    So Amazon now just says out of stock. As far as I can tell they never we're in stock in the US. I have heard that there is limited stock on the Ryzen 500 in Hungary and parts of India? What is the deal here? Was Acer not able to produce these and is now just trying to pretend they never existed? Why have there been no updates or news for release in the Americas?

    The guy at the Acer forums has undervolted and overclocked a bit: "The first one with voltage 0.975 and core speed with 3.300 Mhz. That worked well. The second try was with 0.95 and 3.500. At that setting the system crashed. Third try was at 0.9625 and 3.425 Mhz. That worked well again but a little worse than the first try. I can't find a way to chagne the TDP. "

    He has uploaded some more charts:

    When OCing the processor his firestrike score actually dropped:

    This video has some more details on benchmarks & overclocking. The quality is not great and because of the language it's incomprehensible to me, but it seems like the guy got a Cinebench score of 1514 and 1709 after OC. Temperature increases to 87°C until he turns on max fans, then temps drop to 80°C when running Cinebench OCed:

    + the one below if you talk about stock clocks. Overclocked is another matter.

    Well duh, a 8700K makes minced meat of a 2700X when overclocked, no doubt about that.

    There isn’t any 95W Ryzen X chips in notebooks.
