    Likely yes. A smart move if you ask me. A 1050 Ti runs cool enough that the UX550 should be a better option than the Razer Blade 14 for a thin and light productivity/gaming machine as it will run cooler, quiter and potentially have less heat-related issues.

    I hope that no. I must fully disagree.
    If you are right then there would not be significant upgrade comparing to Ux501, which I have / the latest Zenbook Ux5 version.

    Processor FHD i7-7700HQ previous 6700HQ – 5% difference
    RAM 16GB / I have 24GB – it should be similar I hope so 8+16
    HDD does not matter / you can have what you want
    Others similar or negligible

    Therefore the only difference should graphics card.
    GTX1050Ti 4GB / 960 4GB - max 5% difference
    GTX1060 3 or 4 GB / 960 4GB – min 20% difference – it does make sense

    If they do that (as you wrote) they would lose many potential clients interested with the change. Am I right ?

    You do realize that the 1050 Ti is about 60-70% ahead of the 960M? The 1060 is over double the performance. You are most certainly wrong about the GPUs

    If you OC, yes. Else, they're on par.

    You do realize that we are talking about a 960 M, not a desktop 960. The 960M is a 750 Ti.
