    Hi ultra male !
    if you also give us an estimation of battery life, is it possible you do it also without the 144hz mode ( with 60hz ) ? i heard it forces the discrete GPU to work all the time, hence less battery life.

    @Papusan

    I copied all my data finally onto the new taptop and installed all my apps.

    Tomorrow I need to re-paste it with IC Diamond. You recommend me to just put one dot in the middle of the CPU and GPU or 2 lines? If I do the 2 lines method, how long should the lines be? Can you draw me an example using MS Paint?

    Just use a single 3/4 long line on Cpu and x-xross on Gpu. Even two lines works well on Gpu (3/4 long there as well). Please post before and after results. Remember check the thermal pads imprint. Screenshots.

    Edit. I forgot to add in. Put the syringe with paste in a plastic bag and then in a cup with hot water (50-55C) before you apply the paste. This for thicker paste and with weak heatsink pressure in notebooks. The thermal paste will be softer and will spread better.

    @Terreos @ssj92 @iunlock @Papusan @CptXabaras

    Benchmarks are up in the OP. Please read my comments as to why I will not be repasting it with anything.

    Yeah, as expected bruh. Nothing new there:no: But isn't the Cinebench R20 score alsmost on level with what you got with the locked down i7-8750H in your previous test project? Have you the screenshoot from the old Cinebench R20 bench score done from it?

    And if you look at the ssd 4K speed this is typical Dellbook's whatever models... All of them perform equal bad. What ssd you put in... They won't run as adverticed from the SSD manufacturers.

    1) Check the OP again, I included 2 spoilers for the scores of 3DMark11 and FireStrike from the old 8750H laptop for people to see in the real world, how much improvement does the 8950HK offer.

    2) Here's the Cinebench of the 8750H! Surprising!
