    Ok,

    I promised I'd support Asus if they get AMD goodness in their unique duo screen laptop, and the day is nigh!

    Will update this once I receive it! (God willing)

    Currently eyeing GenTechPC as I heard a lot of great things about them!

    If there are any benchmarks you want me to run please let me know.

    Update: Ordered so now trying to stay patient :) (Thanks @GenTechPC for the quick replies and help during this big purchase for me. God bless!)

    Oh nice! Congrats! Curious on performance delta! We should compare notes when we get our hardware. Was debating upgrading to 3080 before it starts shipping but don't know if I need the extra graphics oumph, especially with the price difference.

    I am pretty sure you will have yours several weeks before the 3080. I do not expect it to ship till April or May?

    Regardless both look very nice! Looking forward to your review!

    Whats up guys. First post here.
    Almost pulled the trigger on the 3070 version. Do you guys know if they will release a 3080 1080p 300hz config? That's what I understood from the presentation.
