    They are probably arguably more popular than Clevo at this point.

    Although I found this little tidbit in an NBR review:

    "Keep in mind that 120 Hz mode is only available if the discrete GPU is active. Native refresh rate will be limited to 60 Hz if switching to the integrated GPU. A system reboot is required if users want to enable Optimus settings."

    I don't see why that's so other than it's a 4k screen, in my non-advanced, but optimus system it can push out 120hz on the igpu but at only FHD.

    So I watched a review which indicated that the drivers come with a toggle to enable traditional Optimus on these laptops. Can anyone verify? I would think that would allow use of high refresh in both games and Windows at the expense of G-sync.
