    Hey,
    I'm new here and haven't bought an Aorus laptop yet. Since I was about to buy the x7 dt v8, I thought that I should ask when the v9 would be announced. I wouldn't like to buy a laptop now if I knew that a new version would be released in a month.

    Thank you for your help.

    The gigabyte ceo himself stated probably early next year but it all depends on nvidia if they will move their schedule forwards or backwards. The RTX chips are more. Power-hungry and even the rtx 2070 now needs 175watts so it will be a challenge to cool for laptops.

    Not a challenge at all, mobile chips have lower TDP than desktop chips, even if they have the same specs (base and boost clocks).

    For example, the mobile GTX 1080 TDP is 150W instead of 180W, same goes for the GTX 1070 Mobile which is 120W instead of 150W, some manufacturers kept the desktop TDP for their mobile cards.
    Max-Q cards had even lower TDP, along with reducing both base and boost clocks.

    If NVIDIA wants to do it its easy for them, The 215W TDP RTX 2080 can easily run in a 180W budget (just like the GTX 1080) with slightly lower actual boost clock.

    The 1070GTX in a laptop if the bios has no tbeen adjsuted still pulls about 140watts under load.

    Its a challenge as in Nvidia wanted to promote equal power between desktops and laptops. With the current lineup they are unable to keep that promise.

    I would advise waiting until January next year if Turing is your desire with the V9.

    Depends on the make and model, default is 120W, manufacturers can do up to 150W if they want.

    Equal performance between desktop and laptop will never happen, performance will be at least 5%-10% lower, probably thanks to lower RAM bandwidth and lower CPU clock.

    It's all guesses at this point. Intel is also due to release its 9th generation Core processors soon, probably within the next quarter. For a notebook with a 9th gen Intel Core CPU and Nvidia RTX 20 graphics, I'd think Q1 or Q2 2019 at the earliest. You'll see new products announced at CES in January.

    No it doesnt. I had an EVGA 1070FTW card, Overclocked to near 2100mhz and the Laptop 1070 at 1900mhz with its more cuda cores had equal scores. THats why I sold my desktop 1070.

    The Laptop GTX 1070 has only 6.667% more Cuda Cores (2048 vs 1920) than the desktop version, so at best case scenario (areas where you are only processing limited, won't happen much) you need your desktop at 2027MHz to match your laptop GTX1070 @ 1900MHz, getting equal performance at 2100MHz with your desktop means that their was something wrong with it or the game/benchmark tested.
