    The CPU change is significant. The i7 is 6-core and the i9-9980HK is 8-core/16t and unlocked.

    It's a pretty big jump if you have heavily multi-threaded workloads. I got mine from Metabox (Australia).

    Less important for tasks like gaming.

    Indeed. I'd say for gaming it may even be a bit worse than the regular 9750H without some tuning.

    Due to the extra cores it's almost impossible to to reasonably configure the 2/3-core turbo. Even then, the Windows scheduler will throw processes at every core which means the lower core-count turbo parameters almost never trigger. That being said, for most games you don't really even need those super high turbos and for the very few games that are extremely CPU heavy (e.g. Watch Dogs 1/2 and Assassins Creed Origins/Odyssey) they also happen to be very multi-threaded so they'll spread their CPU load across all cores nicely, thus allowing them to perform well at a lower turbo.

    Not gonna lie this one has my attention. Is this a full rtx 2070? I know some manufacturers don't let you know it's max-q on the product pages. So just double checking.

    Yes it's the "full" 2070. Average clocks are anywhere from 1500mhz->1600mhz in most games.

    From what Ive read and gathered so far it's the full version which makes this an excellent deal compared to anything on the market right now. I know that Razer just announced their Oled 4k touch with a 2080 max-q (which I believe equals a 2060) will be available next week but that thing is 3k plus

    Max-q 2080 performance really depends on the TDP, there is a wide range of settings.
