    Since there is great debate regarding p870 vs Gt76 in my other thread, I want to ask about all/other possible recommendations.

    I want to buy a heavy gaming desktop replacement laptop
    What I look for:
    1- budget: flexible

    2- size: Desktop Replacement; 17"+ screen (or bigger), 1080/4K resolution, 144/240 refresh rate

    3- no specific brand in my mind (evoc/msi/asus, ....etc)

    4- I prefer a new product

    5- laptop will mainly rest on a desk

    6- regarding battery, want a UPS functionality

    7- operating system windows

    8- build quality is very important (robust and durable, mechanical keyboard ), regarding style and thickness (doesn’t matter)

    9- cooling/thermal element is very important

    10- performance is a very important

    11- upgradable laptop is a great bonus

    There ain’t other options with LGA socket out there. Everything else is with soldered mobile processors as in this brand new gamingbook Tragedy (even with soldered on ram and WiFi). And I wouldn’t call such types notebooks Desktop replacement.

    You have in addition the 17 inch P77xTM. And the smaller 15,6 inch P75xTm from Clevo. What I recommended for you in your other thread still stands.

    The MSI GT75 is also worth a look - fantastic performance and thermals (assuming a re-paste). Metal chassis and amazing speakers (best on any laptop I've heard). Truly a beast.

    I find it difficult to understand the idea of spending a lot of money on a big, expensive laptop with a BGA CPU and/or GPU. BGA has a place, but it is best reserved for low budget shoppers that are more concerned with having a lower price and/or small form factor, not enthusiasts. BGA ≠ DTR.

    this is a "new" product (not yet released, but quite interesting). some may consider it a laptop, some may not, but definitely can be a desktop replacement. check it out.

    the two mentioned previously in the post before are some of the best you'll get during this time, and can't really get much better than that, in terms of specifics

    Definitely an interesting design and seems pretty innovative. I can see some impressive creativity in the CGI model. But, it seems the CPU is a compromised BGA product, and I suspect the GPU is as well, since it has only 200W TGP. As such, it cannot qualify as a DTR based on concept or the stunted level of performance it will be delivering. It might end up being the best performance one can expect from a BGA product. The danger with this sort of thing is it that ends up being inferior to a laptop (due to the design) and inferior to a desktop (based on performance) and it ends up being more of a geeky novelty product.

    Interesting that they don't mention the 2666mhz ram frequency.

    Only that 2666MHz who is Intel's specs for 8th and 9th gen Core processors. Not even 128GB ram who also is within Intels specs for their last gen processors https://www.asus.com/us/Laptops/ROG-Mothership-GZ700/Tech-Specs/

    At least they didn't follow Azor and Dell's Ram specs screw up for their Area-51m gaming flagship:rolleyes:
